Anything Goes Jr Information Night

Milton Follies is excited to announce its Junior Production for June 2019 –  Anything Goes Jr.

A tale of gangsters and divas, love and loss, cruise ships and mistaken identity, this Cole Porter smash hit is sure to be enjoyed by all.

Director Lloyd McDonald and Musical Director Ruth Myers are excited to welcome Choreographer Ash Howes into the Production Team. Ash is a teacher at Milton Public School and brings a wealth of talent, enthusiasm and experience to the show. We are also excited to have Jennifer Sach already on board as Costume Designer, who is already putting together ideas for the show.

“This show has something for everyone,” says Lloyd. “As always, there are roles for singers and actors,but more importantly this year we are looking for dancers. With show-stoppers like “Anything Goes” and “Blow Gabriel Blow”, we are looking to fill the stage with spectacular routines. We also need a core group of featured dancers for additional choreography designed to showcase their talent”.

An information night for performers and their families will be held on Sunday 9th December at 5.30pm at the CWA hall, 56 Wason Street, Milton, where audition and show information packs will be available. Milton Follies is keen to host some free dance lessons through the January school holidays, as both a taster for the show and as a possible advantage for auditions!

Auditions will be held on Saturday 2nd February and Sunday 3rd February 2019, with rehearsals 6-8pm on Mondays and Thursdays through Term 1 and 2. The shows will be over two weekends – May 31st, June 1st and 2nd, June 6th, 7th and 8th.

Cole Porter’s Anything Goes coming to Follies

In exciting news, Milton Follies is able to announce their June 2019 Junior show, Cole Porter’s classic, Anything Goes. Lloyd McDonald, director of Joseph, The Little Mermaid and Seussical, is excited to be bringing this famous show to Milton Theatre, along with choreographer Ash Howes and musical director Ruth Myers.

“This is a great show with incredible opportunities for our local young performers. It’s a play with great comedic characters, so I’m looking for charismatic actors. It’s full of toe tapping songs like Anything Goes, I Get a Kick Out of You and You’re the Top, so my leading men and ladies are going to need to be strong singers.

Most importantly, this is a dancer’s show, so Ash is going to have her work cut out for her! Ideally, we’d love a core of 4-6 high quality dancers to feature in the high energy show-stopper numbers.”

There’s still a bit of administration and planning for Follies to get through, but expect audition information to be posted online towards the end of the year.
