The long-range forecast is for fun, flashbacks and fashion when ABC's revered weather presenter Jenny Woodward takes her one-woman stage show to Hughenden.
Weathering Well is a potted history of the life and times of the popular presenter who chalks up 35 years with the national broadcaster in 2021.
Combining comedy, live music, video projections and a killer script with Jenny's natural wit and charm, Weathering Well is an 80-minute autobiographical theatre experience with a high probability of intriguing anecdotes and behind-the-scenes revelations.
"I'm also going to talk about hairstyles and fashion and how they've changed over the years and I've got some fairly startling photos which I am going to share. There's a lot of, "oh my God, what was I thinking?!" Jenny revealed.
"It won't be all about me! Australia has some really interesting weather history and there's one particular character I'm going to spend a bit of time on, Clement Wragge, who was one of the founders of weather forecasting in Australia."
Weathering Well is produced by Jenny's son, Alex Woodward, and directed by Matilda Award-winning Bridget Boyle with Luke Volker as music director, Nathan Sibthorpe designing audio and visual and Karen Berkman co-writing the original script.
The one-woman show was two-and-a-half years in the making and signals a return to Jenny's roots, having studied theatre at university and performing in a NSW touring theatre company before her television career took hold.
"I guess I had always felt that I hadn't fulfilled my stage career and I got to that point in my life where I thought, if I don't do this now, I'm never going to do it," Jenny said.
"I said from the outset I really wanted to take this show to western Queensland which has been a huge part of my audience ever since I started in television," Jenny said.
Weathering Well will be showing at Diggers Entertainment Centre in Hughenden on May 17, before heading off to Barcaldine, Isisford, Blackall and many other Queensland regional towns.
