Surprise for actors at Ellendale

Actors Chris Cornish, Colin Dean and  Judith Cornish on stage.

THERE were pleasing numbers at the Ellendale Hall last Sunday for the premiere of a short play commissioned for the inaugural Tiger Trail Festival.

Earning Your Stripes – the Search for the Tasmanian Tiger was written and performed by Judith and Chris Cornish with Colin Dean.

There were three performances last Sunday and Mr Cornish said there was scope for the play to travel to other venues.

The play culminated in a monologue by Colin Dean, in which his character recalled an encounter with New Norfolk-based tiger researcher Col Bailey. The performers were unaware that Mr Bailey was in the audience and were pleasantly surprised when he made himself known afterwards.
