2018 is the 100th anniversary
of the signing of the Armistice
to end World War I.
We will once again hold a small service
at the Moonambel Memorial
in the main street
to honour this event.
The Moonambel Community Theatre Company took the challenge of creating new directors in this production.
Steve Lane stepped back into acting while Sanne Malkaer and Marnie Reece-Wilmore applied their skills to directing.
Gwynn van den Bergen was once again a main director.
The 3 plays were very different in their content but all entertained the audience.
This is a new development in the Company and proved to be very successful.
TEMPTATION SORDID OR VIRTUE REWARDED
Directed by Sanne Malkaer
This is our seventh Annual General Meeting but also the fifteenth year since the first Arts Event with the inaugural Easter exhibition. We have won a National Volunteering Award in the past and prove to still be a strong volunteer group committed to bringing art to the area for the community to enjoy. The history component of our agenda is also being addressed.
Since our last Annual Meeting we have been involved in the following activities:
Our website mahg.org.au keeps our activities documented for all to see.
Market stalls, barbecue and devonshire teas continue to be a drawcard when we have events staged at the Moonambel Recreation Reserve.
Projects on the go...
Once again our small team of dedicated workers make our projects work. The creative members need the level headed art & history lovers to make these things happen and vice versa. We have built up a wonderful reputation in the Pyrenees district basically due to our respect of our team and supporters. Well done all.
Our future projects, whatever they may be, are almost guaranteed success due to this dedication and wonderful harmonious community team spirit. I thank you all.
Moonambel Community Theatre Company was invited to take part in the inaugural Midwinter Festival, an MEI event. Being a small but vibrant community, the theatre company was only too pleased to assist.
They helped to create the atmosphere of Steve Lane's original refrain by joining with the Pyrenees Chorale to walk lights towards the welcoming bonfire. While beautiful music filled the air hot air balloons were released into the night.
Hopefully, the Festival will be repeated in the future.
we are excited to present Maggie's annual Open Studio.
Maggie will be working
at her house all weekend
so feel free to talk
to the artist at work.
Maggie is also exhibiting
work by local
Jacqui & Russell Drever and ceramisist Sanne Malkaer.
The beautifully renovated
mud brick octagonal home,
all done by Maggie herself,
is a pleasant back drop
for these talented artists
to display their art pieces.
All approvals are finalised
so that Moonambel now has
a community ceramic centre.
The facility now comprises
a large LPG kiln and associated kiln furniture,
a kick pottery wheel,

Without you there is no show.
