In this, their Centenary year, Scotch College has revisited Les Misérables with a stunning production, so big it requires two casts. This review is of the ‘London’ cast.
As Scotch College launches itself into celebration mode for its centenary year, there is no better choice than one of the greatest musicals of all time, based on the 1862 novel by Victor Hugo. Directing the School Edition of Les Misérables is Linda Williams, backed by Choreographic Director Nina Richards and Musical Director Antony Hubmayer.
With music and lyrics by the renowned Lin-Manuel Miranda, (The Heights, Hamilton) and Tom Kitt and Amanda Green (Next to Normal) Bring It On: The Musical is an exciting contemporary option for youth groups. The musical is very loosely based on the 2000 film of the same name and focuses on the competitive world of cheerleading and over-the-top team rivalries.
Scotch College's annual musical for 2018 is the ever popular and fun-filled 'Legally Blonde'.
For their school musical this year, Scotch College take on the hilarious "The Addams Family". Fran Edwards reviews the Creepy Cast.
Pelican has a reputation for good shows and with the production team they put together for this, their reputation is safe.
#SHe is the latest cabaret production by Promise Adelaide and is a celebration of women through song and dance, featuring a range of songs from different genres and eras.
'Thoroughly Modern Millie' is the delightful stage musical version of the highly successful 1960s Julie Andrews movie.
'Out Of The Blue' was a concert put together and performed by the young people of the popular Promise group. None of these youngsters is over 19 years of age.
Many modern stage musicals rely on a piece of technical wizardry that becomes synonymous with the show and an audience expects to see it: Wicked MUST have Glinda make her first appearance in a bubble; the chandelier MUST crash to the floor in Phantom Of The Opera; Mary Poppins MUST fly; and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang MUST have a car that floats and flies.
This play is as much about history as it is about hope. It was one of the most moving pieces of theatre in its simplicity and truth, and we should look forward to seeing more quality productions such as this.
With only two performances left today, waste no time at all in rounding up the whole family and racing in to see this top quality production, before the remaining tickets are gone. We seldom see performances this good.
