Announcement: Wicked Directorial Team

The Holiday Actors Advisory Committee are happy to announce the team that will lead us through this summer’s production of Wicked.

Congratulations to director Toby McKenzie, vocal director Elana Agnew, choreographer Martinique McKenzie, assistant choreographer Tobin Varley and musical director Nikki Nuske on their successful application.

Toby and Martinique have an extensive on-stage history with Holiday Actors and have recently directed and choreographed a very successful season of Seussical with Camperdown Theatre Company.

Tobin also has many years of on-stage experience with Holiday Actors, and was co-director for our 2017 production of Sweet Charity.

We welcome Nikki back for her third stint as musical director for Holiday Actors, having previously worked with us on Godspell and Sweet Charity.

This will be Elana’s first time working with us as vocal director, but with 25 years teaching, stage and performance experience, we’re sure she’ll be up to the task.

We look forward to working with this team and wish them the best of luck.

Stay tuned for more announcements regarding information days and auditions.

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.
