We’re holding an info night on Friday 6th March 6.30 – 7.30pm so that you can be among the first to hear about our next musical production, the cult ’80s musical Xanadu! Directed by Jesse Hana Ellison and Chris McMahon, our show dates are Friday, July 10, Saturday, July 11 at 7.30pm, Sunday, July 12 at 2pm, and Friday, July 17, Saturday, July 18 at 7.30pm and Sunday, July 19 at 2pm.
If you were in the cradle – or not even born – in the ’80s, here’s a quick rundown of the story …
Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it’s 1980!) But, when the heavenly Kira falls in forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.
This Tony Award-nominated, hilarious, roller skating musical adventure about following your dreams, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends, Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Based on the Universal Pictures cult classic movie of the same title, with the screenplay by Richard Danus and Marc Rubel, and starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, Xanadu is hilarity on wheels for all the family!
There are nine lead characters supported by an ensemble of a minimum of six. Please note that there is high-energy dancing and roller skating in this production – however, the age range is wide, so come along and find out more on March 6 at Coolum Civic Centre, Park Street Coolum, followed by a social catch up at the Coolum Beach Bowlo. Auditions will be held on Saturday, March 28 and Monday, March 30.
