The Goulburn Regional Conservatorium’s Homegrown Series for 2018 launches on Friday 6 April with a special return performance of a completely original stage show set to appear at the Sydney Fringe Festival later this year.
 
Max Anderson in Nothing But Treble is a radio melodrama that is sure to send you laughing right back to the 1930s. The show which has been described as “an outstanding evening’s entertainment” (P Delaney Goulburn Post Review November 2017) is set in the era of private investigators with long monologues behind venetian blinds, smoke-filled clubs, classic villains, damsels in distress and jazz, the show involves a live band, narrator and foley artist (sound effects expert). The audience is asked to engage with the show as if it’s being recorded live and are advised to practice their gasps and applauses before arriving on Friday in their most suave 1930s attire to join Max Anderson as he investigates his most musical case yet.
 
The show was written by GRC Brass Tutor Ryley Gillen (trumpet) with music composed by GRC tutor Kyle Eardley (double bass). Ryley says “the show, which is family friendly, is an entertaining send off of the film noir style and private investigator movies and radio shows made from the mid 20th century”. On speaking about the music for the show Kyle said the music “is a twist of 1930s and modern Australian jazz so it’s definitely a unique sound”.
 
Other GRC members include Keva Abotomey who will feature as the entertaining foley artist and guest vocalist while guitar extraordinaire Garth Prentice will play the blues in this returning production. The band has previous received high acclaim, being regarded as “an excellent septet of first-class musicians” (P Delaney) and the GRC are excited to present this production in April.
 
Max Anderson in Nothing But Treble plays at the Goulburn Regional Conservatorium for one night only on Friday 6 April 7.30pm, Old Ceramics Room.
