Windmill Performing Arts has a three year arrangement with the Mt Gambier based Mainstreet Theatre Company and, by the look of their first joint venture, the combination is going to be a happy one. Mainstreet director Teresa Bell has taken an adaptation by playwright Catherine Zimdahl of "Moonfleet", J.M.Falkner’s lively story of smugglers, ghosts and true destinies, and turned it into an engaging promenade production. On tour since the beginning of January, "Moonfleet" has played to regional audiences at the Umpherston Cave in Mount Gambier, the Old Gaol at Robe, the Foreshore at Kingston and Granite Island at Victor Harbor. For Adelaide performances, the gardens and imposing buildings at Carrick Hill offer settings for this ripping yarn of John Trenchard and his search for treasure and his heart’s desire.
