Return Fire Productions is pleased to present the world premiere of Senior Moments, a comedy revue with a deliciously funny and fresh collection of comic senior moments, sketches and songs. A seriously funny cast who are old enough to know better make wicked fun of the trials and tribulations of growing old disgracefully. Glen Street Theatre in Sydney’s north will house the debut season of this tongue-in-cheek comedy from May 26 this year.
Light-hearted, fun and a little bit naughty whilst always remaining nice, Senior Moments features sketches such as ‘Senior Mastermind’ and ‘Old School’ (Romper Room meets Play School for the neglected over-65 age group), and musical highlights like ‘I Am the Very Model of a Modern Age Retiree’. At last audiences young and old can have some Senior Moments they’ll want to remember!
Senior Moments features a cast of veteran performers including Penny Cook (A Country Practice, Ladies in Lavender), Lex Marinos (Kingswood Country, The Slap), Benita Collings (Play School, Sleeping Beauty), John Derum (The Aunty Jack Show, A Sentimental Bloke), and Russell Newman(Fireflies, Dirty Dancing), with younger performers Nicola Parry (Thank God You’re Here, The Hollowmen) and Christian Barratt-Hill (The Jesters, Packed to the Rafters). Former Channel 9 musical director and Midday maestro Geoff Harvey will join the cast on piano.
Writer/producers Kevin Brumpton and Angus FitzSimons have been writing comedy and satire together for over fifteen years. They wrote and produced two series of the comedy The Jesters, starring Mick Molloy, Susie Porter and Deborah Kennedy, which was nominated for an AWGIE award for Best Situation or Narrative Comedy Writing. Having honed their gag writing skills for radio legend Doug Mulray, their television writing credits include Good News Week, The Chaser’s CNNNN,and the off-beat SBS comedy Life Support, as well as being Head Writers on the long-runningComedy Inc.
