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
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
"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.
