With the current season of KEATING! at the Seymour Centre long since sold out, Company B has announced the return of Casey Bennetto’s multi award-winning, smash hit musical comedy for an incredible third Sydney season, back at the York Theatre, Seymour Centre from 20 June – 15 July, 2007.
The Company B production of KEATING! has enjoyed outstanding reviews, standing ovations and sold out seasons since its premiere in November 2006 at Belvoir St Theatre, touring to Canberra and Wollongong, plus Albany and Perth as part of the Perth International Arts Festival, before returning to Sydney for the current Seymour Centre season.
Before its return to the Seymour Centre in June, KEATING! will once again hit the road for a return season in Canberra (The Playhouse, Canberra Theatre Centre, 26 - 31 March) and a limited season at the Comedy Theatre in Melbourne as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
Actor/comedian Eddie Perfect has now joined the cast to play the roles of Alexander Downer and John Hewson, allowing creator Casey Bennetto time to work on his forthcoming Company B production Real Estate, and acoustic guitarist Emanuel Schmidt has replaced Guy Strazz in the formidably talented KEATING! band. The remaining cast is unchanged: Mike McLeish as Paul Keating, Enio Pozzebon as Gareth Evans, Terry Serio as Bob Hawke and John Howard, Alon Ilsar on drums, bass guitarist Eden Ottignon and Mick Stuart on electric guitar and saxophone.
The cast and crew of KEATING! celebrated their 100th performance last week and the original cast recording CD is now on sale through the Company B box office on (02) 9699 3444.
