From the Arts Management Team
After much discussion between Andrew, Gary and myself a musical has at last been selected for the 2015-2016 season.
It is "The Musical of Musicals" by Joanne Bogart and Eric Rockwell.
Premiered off Broadway in December 2003 it wittily parodies the style of five different composers and their lyricists. An act is devoted to each starting with Rogers and Hammerstein, followed by Stephen Sondheim, then Jerry Herman, and so on through Andrew Lloyd Webber and finally arriving at Kander and Ebb.
The parody is gentle and affectionate and the show will delight anyone who has ever had the pleasure of seeing the works of these composers on stage, in the cinema or on television.
To be performed in the Ron Barber Studio at the end of May 2016 it requires a highly talented acting, singing, and dancing cast of two female and two male performers. Using minimal scenery, simple costume and is usually performed with just a piano it is the perfect choice for the Crescent as we prepare for something larger in the Main House for the following season.
Anyone interested in directing this brilliant show should contact me no later than Friday 5th June on firstname.lastname@example.org
