The audience of the two performances of the theater group "curtain up" enjoyed leaning back and having fun in the fully occupied gymnasium. With the three-act play "wellness with side effects the actors, under the direction of holger zwirlein, succeeded in scoring a hit, which was rewarded by the guests with hearty and long-lasting applause.
For the third time in a biennial cycle, the amateur drama group presented a comedy, the proceeds of which were donated to the charity kindergarten in love. The facility can use all the support it can get, as kindergarten director daniela koch emphasized at the end of the performance. "We like to get involved for a good cause", replied holger zwirlein, himself chairman of the sponsoring association for many years and this time not only a player but also a director.
Proud of the troupe
"since april we first rehearsed in the kindergarten. After the reading we studied individual scenes and finally act by act. It was difficult to find suitable dates for all of them. Only seven times we were full. We were only able to rehearse twice on the stage in the gymnasium. Nevertheless it worked out very well. I am proud of my troupe", so zwirlein after the opening night.
A special challenge was the stage design, as zwirlein began. Instead of a standard living room, a modern hotel had to be created. "We are very grateful to the furnishing house angermuller for the furniture, fensterbau schuler for the terrace and holzdesign plescher for the scenery. The local clubs also helped us with sound and light equipment", said the director.
The comedy takes place in a wellness hotel, where the married couple eva and hugo haberstich, who are friends (ulrike breuter and holger zwirlein) as well as monika and kurt kleiner (gudrun schaller and christian daller) spend a weekend together. The women black from the young masseur pascal stark (sebastian dees) "with his magic hands that give new life". The men seek adventure in the nearby nightclub, where they admire the dancers and even bring a bra to the hotel. Where to hide and what for?
ingenuity is needed. The young, attractive carpenter sonja (nora sebert) shows up and takes advantage of the tricky situation in her own way. But they get a strong ruffle from the resolute housekeeper mrs. Schrubbmeier (monika rettke), who watches over cleanliness and order, so that all the guests can feel good. While the women are dreaming of dinner, the men are totally dissatisfied with "portions for the hollow tooth" and "cheap meat as a rip-off". The evening can not end like this.
