Here’s everything you need to know about auditioning for our next production for 2017
Even wondered what goes on behind the scenes? This wonderful insider glimpse of a Milton Follies production was created by the multi-talented Rachel Tidbury, who has also trodden the boards in many Follies productions.
Disney fans will flock to the Milton Theatre to see stunning teen songstress Brea Holland as Ariel in the hit musical Little Mermaid Junior in June 2016.
The Milton Follies will present six magical shows at the historic theatre, opening on Friday June 10.
Starring Ulladulla’s Australia Day Music Scholarship winner and Milton Voice winner Brea Holland as Princess Ariel, plus an all-singing, all-dancing cast, the show is sure to be a hit with lovers of princess stories of all ages.
The energetic cast of 46 young performers will bring the Disney story to life in a show featuring the well-known songs Part of Your World, Under the Sea and Kiss The Girl.
Show director Lloyd McDonald said the musical was sure to be popular and the cast and crew were ready to wow audiences.
“This is a really big show, with lots of music, dancing and energy,” he said.
“The performers may be young, but they will bring loads of talent to the stage.
“The Milton Follies is a community theatre group, however we strive to put on a professional show.”
The Little Mermaid Jr follows on the from the Follies’ sell-out production of the Seussical Jr musical last year.
Shows will be held on Friday June 10 at 7pm, Saturday June 11 at 5pm and Sunday June 12 at 2pm and again the following weekend June 13-15 at the same times.
Tickets are $20 and available from the website: miltonfollies.org or from Splatters in Milton.
Lloyd said the June long-weekend was an ideal time for people to invite family and friends to the show and make the most of Milton’s wonderful eateries and shops.
“What an ideal way to spend a long weekend on the coast – with a great show at the Milton Theatre and good food.”
