Museum of Performing Arts presents THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING THEATRICAL exhibition, currently open now through Friday, 31 August, 2012.
Museum of Performing Arts THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING THEATRICAL Centrestage in this exhibition of treasures is a gift from the late, producer Diana Bliss - a spectacular gown, with an equally spectacular cape, worn by Gordon Chater when he played Oscar Wilde’s greatest creation, Lady Bracknell. Surrounding this showstopper are costume designs by the esteemed artist, Harald Vike, and the Museum’s own exclusive collection of Beatles photographs taken on the set of their 1965 film Help! Help certainly won’t be needed for the enjoyment of yet another attraction – a cache of letters from the hand of PatRick White.
To mark the Centenary of the birth of this Nobel Prize winning novelist and playwright, we offer two showcases of his marvellous missives, along with the original typescripts of his dramas A Ham Funeral and The Season at Sarsaparilla.
