The Playhouse Theatre in Bundaberg will be part of the global event “All Together Now” next month to celebrate local theatre.
Stages around the globe will be celebrating some of the world’s greatest musicals over the same weekend in this lavish musical tribute.
Some of Bundaberg’s top performers will be on stage for five performances – November 12, 13 and 14 at 7.30 pm and November 13 and 14 at 3 pm.
Directors are husband and wife team Chris and Belinda Arnold, who are excited to be bringing this global phenomenon to Bundaberg.
They first met in 2002 while rehearsing My Fair Lady for the Playhouse Theatre.
“We’re thrilled to include a song from that show in the review, Wouldn’t it Be Loverly,” Chris said.
“Other songs from musicals both familiar and modern include Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat (Guys and Dolls), You Can’t Stop the Beat (Hairspray) and When I Grow Up (Matilda).
“All Together Now will feature songs that we know our audiences love and it will be fabulous to bring them to our Playhouse stage.”
Co-Director Belinda Arnold said rehearsals are going really well.
“We have some of Bundaberg’s best singers on stage and they are relishing the chance to sing these great songs,” Belinda said.
“It is even more special as we will be part of an event happening right around the world on the same weekend.”
