Kissing Sid James
By Robert Farquhar
Directed By James Calvert

08 Oct. 04 - 10 Oct. 04

Kissing Sid James, a play by Robert Farquhar, was Mellow Drama’s first ever production and took place at the Manoel Theatre in 2003. It starred John Montanaro as Eddie and Julia Calvert as Crystal. The play tells the tale of a young, unremarkable couple trying to enjoy their first weekend away by the seaside. It charts the hilarious story as the couple go from hotel room, to karaoke bars to the pier where Eddie’s determination to show he is not a boring paper clip salesman ends up with him leaping into the sea at low tide. The production was directed by James Calvert and was very well received by audiences.


John Montanaro
John Montanaro -

John started acting at the age of 16 when he took part in a production of the play whose name we cannot mention (just in case). Next up was a small part in HMS Pinafore where he met Pia who introduced him to the world of MADC. Since then John has never looked back, taking part in many one-acts, pantos, musicals and farces at a wide variety of venues. He also enjoyed an entertaining stint as Gabriel in the television series Angli. His recent shows for Mellow Drama include Kissing Sid James, An Evening with Gary Lineker, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), Unoriginal Sin, All the Great Books (abridged) and Gasping. Throughout his acting career, John has always enjoyed making people laugh and that is why he jumped at the chance to be a co-founder of Mellow Drama.

Julia Calvert
Julia Calvert -

Julia has always enjoyed acting and, from an early age showed signs of her future calling when locking her grandparents in a room and forcing them to watch her perform. She took this evident enthusiasm and fine tuned it in England where she studied theatre. Her roles on stage, both in the UK and Malta, have seen her tackle a huge variety of different types of theatre because, as she says, it’s always nice to try out different things. She proves this with her jump from the thespian stage with leading roles in Othello and Tempest to her dive into the more somber world of Six Character in Search of an Author and Medea. However, her love for comedy overrides all and she feels in her true element when on stage providing the audience with a good laugh. From Perfect Wedding to An Evening with Gary Lineker and from Kissing Sid James to The 39 Steps, Julia is most at home when bringing smiles to people’s faces.
