Bookings: 1300 306 776 or www.mca-tix.com MARIE SANSOM CROYDON Public School teacher Nicola Furst got so fed up waiting for decent acting roles to come up she set up a theatre company herself. Furst set up Expression Through the Arts, which is presenting a double bill, Waiting for Gotterson and Nothing Like Old Times at Newtown Theatre this month. She is starring in and producing both one-act comedies. ''My aim is to create work pieces that I would want to be in,'' Furst said. ''It's really to create more work for actors.'' Waiting for Gotterson directed by John Derum, puts a contemporary twist on Beckett's Waiting for Godot, when two aspiring actors wait to meet their acting teacher for a class. Nothing Like Old Times, directed by Malcolm Frawley, is about a high school reunion organised by a woman who was once the coolest girl in the school. She is desperate to reclaim her triumphant youth and fall in love, and throws the party at shy Debbie's place. To stack the odds in her favour she invites only guys but her Year 12 nemesis, international fashion superstar Kelly, gets wind of the event. Furst plays two very different characters -- Debbie and Julia. Over 50 Specialty Stores, FREE 3 hour shopper carparking 42 - 50 Railway Parade, Burwood.
