POLITICAL intrigue, romance and a crowd-pleasing soundtrack combine to produce a match-winning night of theatre in GSODA Inc’s upcoming production Chess.
Featuring music by ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, and lyrics by musical theatre legend Tim Rice, Chess is the allegorical tale of a Cold War-era chess tournament and the fierce rivals who battle not only over the game but also their love of the same woman.
GPAC’s Playhouse Theatre will be transformed into a giant chess board and performers become the story’s pawns, setting a spectacular scene for a tale of politics, love and East-West intrigue, featuring players, politicians, the CIA and KGB.
Matthew Bradford, Sally-Anne Cowdell, Jules Hart and David Mackay head a stellar cast of some of Geelong’s finest theatre talent, led by renowned director Debbie Fraser, with the help of vocal director Adelle Gregory and Hart, who doubles up on his on-stage performance in the role of choreographer.
The pulsating rock score, musically directed by Damien Montalto, includes well-known songs such as I Know Him So Well, Anthem and the chart hit One Night in Bangkok, providing an infectious soundtrack to the gripping onstage action.
The combination of politics, romance, a breathtaking set and amazing local talent makes Chess a winner for theatregoers of all ages and interests. Be sure to make your move before it’s too late.
GSODA Inc will stage Chess at the Playhouse, GPAC, for six shows only from October 7 to 15. Tickets range from $35-$45 and are available now from GPAC on 5225 1200 or at
