2018 Show Announcement

Holiday Actors is proud to present our 2018 summer musical Wicked!

Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba.

Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda’s unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba’s determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future.

Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

We are looking for an experienced directorial team to guide our cast of talented young actors. If you think you have what it takes please get in contact with us using one of the methods below.

Company Tickets Now On Sale

Tickets for Holiday Actor’s mid year musical, Company, are now on sale at the Lighthouse Theatre, or online http://www.lighthousetheatre.com.au/company-holiday-actors-young-directors

A ‘company’ of young directors, featuring some of Warrnambool’s most extraordinarily and talented musical theatre peeps, have come together to direct Holiday Actors third mid year musical, Stephen Sondheim and George Furth’s Company.

Holiday Actors Young Directors Gabby Good (Director), Eden Agnew and Will Bonney (Co-vocal Directors), Jack Quail (Musical Director) and Sarah Hall (Choreographer), have combined years of personal experience in musical theatre and music to bring to life a comedy that features exquisite music, scintillating lyrics and a witty and illuminating dialogue.

“Company is full of our region’s incredibly talented young people, and as first time directors, we are rivalling in all the challenges and rewards of undertaking such a diverse and complex musical,” Gabby Good, Director said.

“Holiday Actors boast a legacy of supporting and encouraging our region’s young people to use and grow -their talents, and our community based theatre company, is blown away by this team of young directors, whose ages vary from 17-19 years,” Holiday Actors President Mick Downes said.

Company deals with life’s tumultuous friendships and relationships, and finding somewhere to belong in both a touching and humorous way, making the show universally appealing. Due to mild course language and some adult themes, the show is suitable for people aged over 13 years.

The show will open on 8 June, and tickets are now on sale, and can be purchased from the Lighthouse Theatre.

2017 Annual General Meeting

We will be holding our AGM at 2.30 pm Sunday May 21st at the Warrnambool College Auditorium. Sweet Charity DVDs ($5) will be available for purchase. We will have a screening of the DVD at the conclusion of the meeting.

All current, past and future members, families and any interested people are welcome to attend.

We will also be electing a new committee to guide us through the next 12 months.

Committee members are hard working, passionate people dedicated to helping the whole group put on the best local performances possible. We hold monthly meetings, usually on the third Wednesday of the month, often lasting an hour and a half to two hours.

If you’re interested in joining us, and are able to put in the work and attend meetings for the next 12 months, please download the form below. You will need to get other current committee or paid cast members to nominate and second the nomination.
