Ginger Mick Takes to the Stage

C.J. Dennis's verse novel, The Moods of Ginger Mick, his follow-up to The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke, has now been adapted for the stage.

"Ginger Mick at Gallipoli debuted as a four-man song-and dance act on Anzac Day last month. It stars Joe Clements as Mick, Bruce Kerr as his mate, Billo, with Brendan O'Connor and Craig Annis juggling peripheral characters, with Dennis' colourful Aussie lexicon intact."

The play has been developed by Melbourne's Petty Traffikers theatre company, and the current production runs from May 23 to June 11, Tuesday to Sunday, at Fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders Lane, city.

Might see if I can take meself along to this one.
