One of the groups, here, on Redbubble, is: The Art of Theatre and Stage.
So here I’d just like to show you how I experienced Open Day, at NIDA, not too long ago.
The National Institute of Dramatic Art, NIDA, is located in Kensington, in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.
Upstairs, in a display cabinet, I recognised particularly, two pictures.
One was of Gordon Chater. I used to love listening to him and Gwen Plumb, giggling away on 2GB, so many years ago that nobody here will remember what I’m talking (writing) about!
I have not tuned in to 2GB for many, many years now!
Loved the Mavis Bramston Show and missed most of My Name’s McGooley, What’s Yours, because I was teaching, in the far west where I had no t.v..
The other was Tim Draxl.
He attended the same performing arts secondary college, as my son and my daughter and so, every so often, I’d seen him perform, first mainly singing and of course, after that on T.V..
But the last time I saw him live, was in a production of A Midsummer Nights Dream, which had me in stitches (as they say).
It was very funny.
(I attended that Open Day, just as I was doing my best to win a few months’ tuition, in painting, in the Netherlands. Radio Netherlands was running a competition, which they called: Inspired by Rembrandt, to celebrate 400 years, since his birth and I was painting pictures, on that theme and ….there…., in the corridors of NIDA, was a large replica of one of Rembrandt’s paintings!! )
