Director's Bootcamp

Ribbons update

Sadly, we have decided not to proceed with plans to stage Ribbons by Annie Massey.

After three years of battling lockdowns trying to  mount a production of this wonderful play, we have decided to make the announcement to give the cast and crew the freedom to pursue other projects. We thank them for their outstanding commitment to us over the past few years. 

We hope to announce a new production in 2023.

The Hobos are delighted to promote Megan J Riedl’s upcoming DIRECTOR'S BOOTCAMP at Creswick Courthouse. Our audiences will remember Megan directed The Carer by Alan Hopgood in 2019.

The Hobos have been busy producing scenes for a new e-book called Breathing Underwater by Anne Southall. The three scenes, featuring actors Patti Fawcett and Clare Shamier (pictured, l-r), were shot by Rory McLeod and edited by Ben Power. Big thanks indeed to this talented bunch of professionals. The shoot was in Bendigo on November 7, 2022. Photos: Rory McLeod.

Big thanks to the wonderfully talented Clare Shamier who knocked three monologues out of the park today to complete the final session of Part I of our Breathing Underwater project in Bendigo. Part II shoots are earmarked to start in January 2023. Stay tuned! Photo: Rory McLeod.

Well, that's a wrap!
