The story follows Rob Gordon, a Brooklyn record shop owner in his 30s who is obsessed with making top five lists for everything and always observing, rather than participating, in life.

When his girlfriend Laura leaves him, he goes through a painful re-evaluation of his life and lost loves – with some help from his music – and slowly learns he has to let go of his self-centred world view before he can find real happiness.

High Fidelity was also adapted into a 2000 film featuring John Cusack and Jack Black.

Treasure plays two roles – a middle-aged man and rock legend Neil Young.

Acting for more than 25 years, he has performed in most Perth theatres but mainly with Mandurah Performing Arts Centre, Roleystone, Kwinana and Marloo theatres.

Some of his more recent shows include Fiddler on the Roof with Murray Music and Drama and The Little Mermaid at Koorliny Arts Centre.

High Fidelity is on tonight and March 17, 18 and 19. Call 9397 5730 or visit www.roleystonetheatre.com.au for tickets.
