YOUTH, REBELLION, SEXUALITY AND MORTALITY

StageArt proudly present the Victorian professional premiere of The Tony Award winning Spring Awakening. An electrifying story set to a contemporary and rock infused score. A revelatory journey from adolescence to adulthood with poignancy and passion that is illuminating and unforgettable. It is Germany, 1891, a world where the adults hold all the cards and the youth struggle through the adversity of coming of age in a time when sexual education is non-existent.

Footloose
May 19 @ 8:00 pm – May 27 @ 8:00 pm

Are you ready to cut Loose…Footloose?

Kick off your Sunday shoes and summon your inner Kevin Bacon!

MLOC Productions is proud to present their first production for 2017, FOOTLOOSE the Musical

Based on the 1984 hit movie with Bacon, Lori Singer and John Lithgow, the musical pits rebellious high school students against repressive parents, and liberal big cities against conservative small towns.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the local laws – including a ban on dancing – which are the brainchild of a local preacher bent on exercising control over the town’s youths. When the Reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her heart on Ren, her boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation and many of the locals are eager to believe the worst about the new kid.

The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

Footloose is a musical filled with love, heart, and open youthful energy, a story about dancing, but it’s also about a family and a town that is grieving a great loss. It’s a story about how fear and grief can cause us to control the things around us, when what we really need is to let go.

Set to the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and boosted with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE The Musical, celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

7 SHOWS ONLY at the Shirley Burke Theatre, Parkdale from 19 May 2017.

The Cat in the Hat guides us into The Jungle of Nool where we see Horton, the kind hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. He meets JoJo, a Who child sent to military school for thinking too many “thinks”. Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust on a nearby clover, while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by the lazy Mayzie la Bird. Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Only his loyal neighbour, Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him.

Seussical weaves a story of friendship, loyalty and love. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool. Charming Seussical teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
