Last Friday I was fortunate to attend opening night of the Beenleigh Theatre Group’s first production for the year 2018 as a reviewer for Scenestr magazine. I had interviewed Brad Chapman last month who was directing this stage adaptation of Lord of the Flies and who I had seen perform earlier in 2017 in Cosi. Chapman who is also a school drama teacher has gotten some great natural performances out of his young cast and I was impressed by the lighting and set design. I enjoyed the play and you can read more of my thoughts here http://scenestr.com.au/arts/lord-of-the-flies-brisbane-review-crete-street-theatre-20182201
It remains a privilege to get to go along and see theatre put on by people who give up all their spare time to put on a show with great productions and performances.
Produced by Eyeball Media Enterprises Scenestr. is an online national magazine with local offices around Australia. Celebrating 25 years in 2018 of publishing history they’ve excelled at moving into the digital realm but they remain at heart from the streets. They still publish magazines in print for Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane every month. If you’re into music they’re a great read but they do cover all of the arts including festivals, stand-up comics, fashion, theatre and film. I feel very fortunate to get to write for them.

Nice review, Lloyd. You are getting around these days!
That is one of the favourite books of my youth, and I love the original film adaptation too. But I have never seen it as a stage production.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thank you Pete, yeah I’m very lucky. Seen this and I, Tonya just this year. I actually haven’t read the book or seen the film and so didn’t know what was going to happen and enjoyed that. It was very well done as a play as you can see from the photos on the site. Thank you so much for reading. How are you doing?
Thanks, Lloyd. Not too bad at the moment. Keeping up with followed blogs, and using posts from drafts on my own.
Glad to hear it.
Liked the review. Loved the book but never seen any ah adaptation. Curious to now though.
This one was very good.
