Message from the President


Hello all!

We’ve been flat out over the past few weeks here at PLoT with a lot of small events taking place since Semester 1 kicked off at UTAS this year. Many of you will be receiving an email for the first time, having signed up at O-Day a few weeks back. We signed up a truckload of new members and it was great to meet a few of you on the day. The society has been kicking around for twenty years this year and its success depends on bringing in new talent every year. I hope that we’ll see a few of you at shows and auditions into the future.

We were also well represented at the inaugural Tasmanian Theatre Awards this year; PLoT was there both for a couple of nominations for last year’s production of Hamlet and as performers as part of a short sketch assembled by Andrew Casey of REACT Drama School. We also cleaned up at the TUU’s Society Council Awards this year, receiving a total of four awards including Best Society and Best Special Interest Group.

We’ve also kicked off our rehearsals for our first production of 2015, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Auditions were a blast this year, and a big thanks to everyone who volunteered their time to come in and have a bash at the process. I’m really pleased with the cast we’ve put together, and I know they’re going to put on a hell of a show. Your cast for Twelfth Night is below:

Viola ………. Bella Young
