Palace Cinema Como
4.00pm Introduction by director Mark Dooley before the screening of Repeat Attenders

Mark Dooley
Australian Mark Dooley is an independent filmmaker currently based in Melbourne. Having worked in broadcast television since 2000, Mark has extensive credits to his name working in factual, documentary and reality television and has worked around the world on some of the world’s biggest television franchise brands.

According to Mark, “Making a feature documentary alone is not an easy task. It either takes hundreds of thousands of dollars, or it takes time”. The idea for Repeat Attenders was born in 2012 when Mark first decided he wanted to create a documentary about a subject he knew a lot about (theatre), but a subculture he did not (repeat attenders).  In many ways, Repeat Attenders is a love letter to Broadway superfans everywhere.

Synopsis:

For throngs of eager audiences around the world who seek refuge from the daily grind, there is simply nothing else quite like musical theatre. But what is a special occasion for many is an addiction for others – a way of life and, even more dangerous, an obsession.

Repeat Attenders follows Broadway’s superfans for whom one visit is never enough. Dedicating themselves to that moment when the lights drop and the show starts, Australian filmmaker Mark Dooley looks behind the curtain at these ‘repeat attenders’, exploring what makes their love of musical theatre such a defining aspect of the lives.

This is an eye-opening and spellbinding portrait of theatre fandom run amok.
