Calendar Girls rehearsals coming along nicely

There’s no rest for Follies, with Calendar Girls rehearsals now in full swing. The first few rehearsals were full of giggles as performers played Never Have I Ever and the Human Knot game in order to quickly establish relationships on which to build a bonded troupe.

Di Falloon is now spending time with the cast workshopping characters, before tackling perhaps the most daunting scene of the show – the nude calendar photo shoot.

With scores of props, multiple entrances and exits, piano playing, singing, as well as choreography for 6 unclothed women to protect their modesty, this scene has the potential to be the highlight of the play, or its biggest disaster! The show opens in November, with ticket sales available soon.

Joseph Reunion popular with Cast and Crew

Milton Follies held a mini Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat reunion on Saturday June 16th, with cast and crew of the successful November 2017 production reuniting at Mollymook Bowling Club to sing along to the Donny Osmond movie.

Local performers were in fine voice, with many reprising their roles for one last time. There were many laughs to be had, as the team relived missed cues, close calls and rapid costume changes, and absent members were fondly recalled.

At the end of the movie, it was unanimously agreed that our production had put the professional version to shame.

Joseph Cast and Crew Reunion on Saturday, 16th June

The long awaited cast and crew reunion for Joseph will be held soon:

  • Date: Saturday, 16th June
  • Time: meet at 630pm, film at 7pm
  • Venue: Mollymook Bowling Club
  • Cost: $10 including food. Drinks can be purchased at the bar.
  • Chairs will be provided, BYO beanbag if you want.

RSVP to seanh.coach@gmail.com by 9th June for catering purposes.

Note: this is NOT our show! It’s the Donny Osmond film, which is nearly as good 🙂

See you there!

Many thanks to Mollymook Bowling Club for providing their venue.
