Rehearsals are well and truly underway as the Wagga School of Arts Community Theatre prepares for their next production.
Anna Swift has taken on the challenge of directing Absolutely Fabulous.
"Producing a play is very much like a first-grade sporting commitment," she said.
"You have to plan it months in advance and audition lots of talented people and only select a few.
"We started with the overall cast, and then we have been doing different acts as we go along."

"The play is about contradictions," Ms Swift said.
"It's about a mother and a daughter, where the teenage daughter is the adult and a stable personality.
"She's the one that is cooking the dinner and questioning the mother's actions."
Ms Swift said the mother, Edina, and her friend, Patsy, are entirely and outrageously selfish middle-aged women.
"They like to go out, drink champagne and spend lots of money," she said.
"That all comes crashing down when the ex-husbands decide they won't be paying the alimony and suddenly Edina finds herself poor.
"They way she and Patsy deal with it is to get around town misbehaving."
Ms Swift said it's exciting to be a part of the 160th celebrations.
Leading the madness are Jo Darby, Elizabeth Woods, Barbara Landrigan, Lynden Clark, Georgi Lamond, Rachel Rienits, Barbara Landrigan, Antonella Salvestro and Bec Huxtable.
The ladies are accompanied by Shaun Perry, Josh Steadman, Patrick Kenny, Damian Triulcio, with a guest appearance by Silas Darby.
Marketing manager Fay Walters said a special thank you to Beyond Bank for sponsoring.
"A cast of great talent and experience will ensure the show will be a winner," she said.
The show will run on July 28, August 4, August 11 and August 18 at 3pm and 7.30pm.
