CURTAIN CALL AGAIN BECKONS RODNEY

Pictured putting the finishing touches to the railway carriage’s end rail prop for the upcoming College musical production Hello Dolly is Parade Archivist Rodney Prusa.

Rodney, a final year student of 1981, has committed serious time and energy to the building of props for many and varied College production since 2010 – from the oversized spray can in Hairspray through to the giant pillars of Aida.

“I’ve been involved with musical productions like Aida and Hairspray, but also non-musical productions like Matchmaker,” Rodney said.

“I love the creative side of things and I love seeing the end result when it all comes together and you see the students shine. You see them really doing their best and I love being part of that.

“It’s why I put a lot of effort into the props, so the students can see that we take it seriously and then contribute their energies fully . . . not that they wouldn’t anyway.”

Hello Dolly will be staged over five nights in Parade College’s Rivergum Theatre – May 11, 12, 17, 18 and 19, commencing 7.30pm.

Tickets (adult $25, concession $20, family $70) are available via www.trybooking.com/tiaq
