Holidays Actors would like to extend a warm thank you to all those who came and supported the 2017 Young Directors production of ‘Company’. We are extremely grateful to all those who helped the cast and musicians to put on a wonderful show.
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.
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.
We are seeking expressions of interest from persons interested in directing the 2018 musical. Applicants must include 3 suitable shows.
