The Pink Panther Strikes Again – Now Showing!
The Pink Panther Strikes Again has been showing for a week now, with the audience and the reviewers loving it!
theatrepeople.com.au’s Alison Hilbig has to say:
Taking a film to a stage adaptation is never an easy task, but under the skillful direction of Dexter Bourke, the 1812 Theatre have managed to pull it off. This is a clever adaptation and fans of the original film will not be disappointed (and yes, the well-loved Pink Panther theme by Henry Mancini is included).
The Pink Panther Strikes Again is a thoroughly entertaining night of theatre for audiences of all ages, guaranteed to give you a laugh, and if you’re old enough to remember the original film version, stir up some hilarious memories.
About the production:
The world’s most unusual criminologist, Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau, fights for his life and for the future of all mankind in the most bizarre and dangerous caper of his brilliantly successful and utterly clumsy career. Paul Dreyfus, once his long-suffering boss, now turned into a raving lunatic, holds the world at bay with the ultimate weapon, the Doomsday Machine. Dreyfus is out to get Clouseau, the man whose undeserved success has driven him crazy, and he threatens to vaporize continents if the nations of the world don’t deliver Clouseau to him alive or, if at all possible, dead!
Blissfully unaware that the army of deadly assassins is gunning for him, or that the beautiful girl who seeks him out is a Russian agent, Clouseau incredibly stumbles and slips by every attack. However, the world is running out of time because the increasingly frustrated Dreyfus, doodling with the Doomsday Machine, is running out of patience.
Showing in The Lowe Auditorium – 15th November to 8th December, 2018
