Sounds of Musical Theatre


WMTC READY FOR 22: Wyong Musical Theatre Company is ready and rearin to go into 2022 with a vote of confidence from the floor, a totally fresh-looking website, and a selection of first act musicals thatll slay em. The second act for 2022 will be announced later in the year. Like all theatre companies around the world, the pandemic has caused shows to be postponed, shuffled or canned, but the Wyong Company has faith in their forthcoming productions.

The Addams Family is set to play to the Grove audiences from February 25 until March 12, the school edition of We Will Rock You is being programmed for two weekends, April 14 23, while fans of Louisa May Alcott will rush to book their seats for Little Women, announced for a three week run from June 9 until the 25th. The Addams Family is based upon characters created by Charles Addams in his single-panel gag cartoons, which depict a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre. Although numerous film and television adaptations of Addams cartoons exist, the musical is the first stage show based on the characters.

We Will Rock You (often abbreviated as WWRY) is a jukebox musical based on the songs of British rock band Queen with a book by Ben Elton. The musical tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought and fashion, and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown.

Based on Louisa May Alcotts 186869 semi-autobiographical two-volume novel, Little Women focuses on the four March sisters traditional Meg, wild, aspiring writer Jo, timid Beth and romantic Amy, and their beloved Marmee, at home in Concord, Massachusetts, while their father is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War. Intercut with the vignettes in which their lives unfold are several recreations of the melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio. Behind the scenes, things are looking rosy, with the retiring committee re-elected into their previous positions: Julie Young, Jane Sackman, Tracy Pattison, Margaret Holdom, Linda Vermuyten and Maddie Richards.

Ladies RULE.
