"Looking Back has a small but talented cast and will leave audiences humming some familiar tunes," Katherine said. "We have some chorus numbers and quite a few solos and duos, plus a children's chorus of seven. The show is semi-staged and, at times, done in an 'audition/rehearsal' format."
"Looking Back came about as a result of us having to cancel our intended production of The Pirates of Penzance due to a lack of men," she said. "We needed to pull something together fairly quickly so the idea of a show highlighting the history of musical theatre at Melville was born.
"I have a long history with Melville Theatre and thought it would be apt to share my love of musical theatre with the company that my father began. The main challenge is the short amount of time we have and the small cast – but they are all extremely talented and dedicated and I know they will deliver a very entertaining show."
Looking Back plays at 8pm November 27, 28, December 3, 4 and 5 with a 2pm matinee November 28. Tickets are $20, $15 concession – book on 9330 4565 or at www.meltheco.org.au. Melville Theatre is on the corner of Stock Road and Canning Highway, Palmyra.
