Little Theatre presents Venetian Twins for three weeks

Woy Woy Little Theatre will present its final play of the year for a three-week season at the Peninsula Theatre from October 25.

Venetian Twins is billed as a fast-paced, comedy with music.

Written by Nick Enright and Terence Clarke, the show was adapted from Carlo Goldoni's 18th Century play.

Woy Woy Little Theatre publicity officer Ms Terry Collins said the result was a contemporary Australian version, jam-packed with silliness, scandal and mayhem

"The plot is a classic one: twins and mistaken identity, loves with wrong loves, villains stealing from the wrong victim and every variety on the mistaken identity theme you can imagine."

Ms Collins said the play was wonderfully "Australianised", with one of the twins from Venice and the other, an outback version of a Venetian, having come from somewhere near Goondiwindi.

"The script and styles are permeated with that wonderful Australian ironic humour that blends easily with such old material," she said.

"The beauty of Enright's words and the bouncing delight of Clarke's seemingly simple but complex music will give you a night of joy, wit and warmth, all delivered at a pace fast enough to keep you on the edge of your seat," Ms Collins said.

The play is directed by Ms Christine Vale with musical direction by Mr Graham Vale, with set design by Steve Pembroke and lighting and sound by Ms Penny Dilworth.

Ms Collins said a host of new faces would also be making their stage debut with Woy Woy Little Theatre through this production.

Tickets are essential.
