ROCK OPERA SPECTACULAR (article first published : 2002-03-7)

St Anne’s College will present Multi-Media Rock Opera Spectacular from March 15 to 21 (No performance on March 17).

This will be the first major musical production in St Anne's College’s new theatre to mark the celebration of St Anne's 125th birthday. Rather than tell a specific story or promote a particular message, Multi Media Rock Opera Spectacular aims to give the viewer a unique and entertaining theatrical experience.

A 125th celebration costume party follows the performance on March 21. Tickets for this evening are R50 and include the performance and drinks and snacks at the party. The theme for the costume party is to dress as your favourite theatre or film character. Seats are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

The production aims to integrate elements of song, dance, acting, puppets, physical comedy, film and slides in the form of a theatrical collage. The spectacular will reveal itself in the form of a number of gimmicks and staging devices. Musical numbers range in style from opera and ballad to rock and township musical, and the overall choice of material has specifically been orientated towards pieces that the audience will know and identify with.

A huge undertaking for the school, Multi Media Rock Opera Spectacular is under the leadership of Lynn Chemaly as artistic director with musical creation and direction by Jeff Judge, technical design and physical comedy by Mike Wiblin and guest artist Michael Bullick in a lead performance role.

Performances take place at 19h00. Tickets R20. Booking with Toni on 033 343-3300.
