Our 9 day January Theatre Workshop has grown to 66 students performing a 1hr musical.

With 19 of our cast in their first musical we welcome you all to share in their memorable magical experience with Neptune! A special thanks to our talented Orphans and, Courtney is a gem. I can not offer enough thanks to Noelene, our orchestra leader and a talented actor. Noelene keeps me on track, assisting with sewing and creating props. Del rehearsal and show and pianist extraordinaire. During this difficult economic time we reflect on the 1933 s similar climate and in s words, the sun will come out tomorrow. Our tireless President, Gill Summerville with what props do you need I can find them even the Mona Lisa!

She is currently studying choreography piano and musical direction and hopes to study in Paris next year. THIS IS A COMMUNITY PRODUCTION IT IS AN INFRINGEMENT OF COPYRIGHT TO MAKE A VIDEO OR RECORDING ELECTRONIC OR OTHERWISE. PLEASE REFRAIN FROM GOIG BACKSTAGE UNTIL AFTER THE PERFORMANCE Choreographer s note My greatest challenge choreographing was to achieve stage movement with some cast members who had not danced before while others have limited experience. Going back to basics, my priority was presenting routines that would be fun while giving each cast member a new skill they could mould into their role, turning it into an enjoyable experience. All of this was to be achieved with minimal time for teaching, correction and tidying. I wish each cast member the best of luck, with the hope that you all take away at least one lesson in stage movement that you an carry through your theatrical career.
