Music theatre’s night of nights

Songs from The Little Shop of Horrors and other great stage shows will feature in the musical showcase. 161155

A MUSICAL theatre cult classic gets the GSODA treatment in a spectacular new variety showcase about to hit the GPAC stage.
A cast of around 60 of the most talented young performers from Geelong, the Bellarine and the Surf Coast have come together to pay homage to some of their favourite musical moments in This is Our Story.
Little Shop of Horrors, the musical comedy about a flesh-eating plant that has designs on world domination, is one of the shows to feature in This is Our Story’s jam-packed program of 30 spectacular musical numbers.
Audiences will be transported to the streets of skid row, as well as the deserts of the Sahara, the dance floors of Miami and even the hallways of high school as the talented young cast present a diverse collection of songs in this celebration of modern musical theatre.
Movie lovers will get the rare treat of seeing highlights from little-seen stage adaptations including Heathers, Bring it On and School of Rock. Younger audiences will delight in Shrek, Seussical and Disney’s Aladdin, while music lovers will struggle to stay in their seats through the toe-tapping hits of Dolly Parton’s Nine to Five and Gloria Estefan’s On Your Feet.
Guiding the young cast through this unique theatrical experience is director Hannah Petrie-Allbutt, a former Junior herself who has returned to the company to make her GSODA directorial debut. Aided by fellow vocal director Rebecca Newman and an energetic team of choreographers, Hannah has designed a program that showcases the diverse talent of her cast of singers, dancers and actors – all aged 11-17.
Boasting energetic dance numbers, impressive vocals and some of the most colourful characters to hit the Geelong stage, This is Our Story promises to be an unforgettable theatrical experience for audiences of all ages.
This is Our Story will be performed for four shows only in GPAC’s Drama Theatre from 10-12 November. Tickets are now on sale through GPAC on 5225 1200 or at www.gpac.org.au
