Chasing Pegasus at Mt Martha House
The Mornington Mail, 18 December, 2003

Chasing Pegasus, a play by writer and actor, Sally McLean, is a culmination of a year of dramatic education of peninsula thesbians.

Ms McLean teaches weekly acting classes out of Mount Martha Community Contact, and brought successful Melbourne actor Alan Fletcher in to discuss the profession on December 3.

"From the students perspective, they got a clearer insight into the realities of the industry, and how they have to multi-skill," she said. "They learned how it is necessary to be able to work in more than one medium."

Written specifically for the students to perform, Chasing Pegasus carries a message of hope. "Its about having dreams, having goals, and not giving up - which ties in nicely with being an actor!", Ms McLean said.

She said the students only had 2.5 hours per week, over nine weeks to rehearse the play.

"They're brilliant. I'm so proud of them," Ms McLean said.

"They've shown an incredible amount of professionalism, and they teach me as much as I teach them."

The workshop performance of Chasing Pegasus will be performed at Mt Martha House, crn The Esplanade and Dominion Road, Mt Martha on Friday, December 19 at 7.30pm.
