Musical Director: Linda Gefken      Choreography: Lyndsie McDermott

We opened 2021 with a bang! Starting with our first production, the musical comedy XANADU!
Crowds flocked to the Civic Centre for this GEMM of a production which was a sell out season for us. No surprise, our musicals usually are. A fabulous cast of 13 triple threats took to the stage to deliver outstanding and extra cheesy performances night after night, only to be gifted a standing ovation at every single performance.
Thank you to all the fabulous and dedicated cast and crew.

Next up we went to the seaside with Deckchairs,  we had our stroll along the Prom Prom Prom with 5 playlets and a cast of 10 talented women. This season saw limited seating due to COVID restrictions, but was raved about by all who attended. All 5 plays were very different and ranged from drama to comedy and each had their own little individual twist in the plot. Thank you to all the fabulous and dedicated cast and crew.


 

NOVEMBER / December 2021

Directed by Linda Gefken

Ladies in Black by Carolyn Burns with music by Tim Finn is a wonderful musical that follows the lives of the women working in Ladies Wear in a big department store in the 1950s over the Christmas holidays.

Based on an Australian novel “The Women in Black” by Madeleine St John and spawning the “relentlessly optimistic” 2018 movie, this “feel-good show is a unicorn of the stage: a full-blown, home-grown musical that actually works” (Sydney Morning Herald).

Ladies in Black will be directed for the Coolum Theatre Players by Linda Gefken
(We Will Rock You, Spamalot, Sweet Charity), auditioned in August,
staged in November and will be a visual delight as well a musical treat
featuring well known faces and newcomers.
