Returning: Stage & Screen

Arts program Stage & Screen returns next month, but with a change to its line-up.

Arts program Stage & Screen returns next month, hosted by Deborah Hutton with Margaret Pomeranz, Graeme Blundell and Leo Schofield .

Arts reporter Chris Hook appears to be no longer part of the series.

Stage & Screen also features unique interviews with arts luminaries and the star performers of cinema, television and the live performing arts, offering insight into the diverse offerings and talent that exists right across the Australian arts and culture landscape.

Deborah welcomes viewers back to a series which covers what’s on in theatre performances around the country, music and dance, must-see exhibitions, upcoming cinema releases and what’s on the small screen. 

In the returning episode next Wednesday March 1 at 7.30pm, Deborah is joined by performing arts expert and co-Artistic Director of the Adelaide Festival Rachel Healy who gets us excited about the festival which she is co-artistic directing with Neil Armfield.

The episode also features actors Alison Whyte and Colin Friels who interview each other about their upcoming Melbourne Theatre Company production Faith Healer in which they never actually appear on stage at the same time in this four part monologue play structure.

Margaret Pomeranz offers critical insights into the new Australian coming-of-age film Jasper Jones, before interviewing author Craig Silvey and seasoned director Rachel Perkins prior to the film release.

Margaret is joined by television critic Graeme Blundell to take a look at showcase (Foxtel) channel’s latest drama series offering Big Little Lies. A subversive, dark comedic drama based on the book of the same name by best-selling Australian author Liane Moriarty and stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard.
