The Luitingh Alexander Musical Theatre Academy (LAMTA) presents their new acting production, comedy classic Cosi by Louis Nowra, at Theatre on The Bay from Wednesday September 20 to Saturday September 23.

Featuring a cast of 15 students from LAMTA, and directed by Christopher Weare, Cosi, set in 1971 Australia, against the backdrop of the Vietnam war protests, is about friendship, romance, community, and difference. Inside an institution the resident patients are listening to Mozart, learning their lines and occasionally skipping their medication.

Performances run from Wednesday to Saturday at 8pm, with a Saturday matinee at 4pm. Tickets are available from Webtickets or the Theatre On The Bay box-office on 021 438 3300.
