How did I get into MTC? Well, in high school on the Gold Coast I worked backstage for two musicals (Grease in 2009 and Anything
Goes in 2011). When I moved up to Atherton I got a job at the bakery
where Grace came in wearing her Chicago T shirt and as I sold her a Curry Pie I commented on her top. Striking up a quick chat about
theatre and I recalled my love of being backstage for theatre. Two
months later I got a call asking if I’d be Stage Manager for Chalk Circle (2012). I agreed, had a blast and haven’t looked back since becoming
heavily involved and loving every part of it.
Malanda Theatre Company’s Musical Production
Rehearsals for our musical production “Anything Goes” are now in full swing. The cast includes many of the company’s strongest musical and comedy performers, including Felicity Stoetzel, Howard Smith, Seth Hartley, Kirsten Adams, Marg Procter, Graham Harrington, Chris Hoare, Jake Skukan and Jo-Anne Dittman as well as several newcomers with Jacquie Morrison playing the romantic lead role.
What is the Story of Anything Goes?
Anything Goes is set aboard the ocean liner S.S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney (with her four angels) is en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy aristocrat Lord Evelyn Oakleigh, a match encouraged by Hope’s social climbing mother Mrs Harcourt who is travelling with her. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Billy’s boss Whitney, Public Enemy#13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some elaborate disguises, tap dancing sailors and good old fashioned blackmail, Reno and Martin join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.
