A MONTAGE OF MUSICALS

6th - 7th October 2017

Director - Valarie Ball

Musical Director - Tim Walker

Choreographer - Jennifer Deakin

A Montage of Musicals is a history of the musical from the 1930's to the present day; a performance filled with some of the most popular songs from the most well known musicals ever performed, from such musical giants as Rogers and Hammerstein and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

 

The Zodiac, including the ever talented local children, performed songs from the juke-box musical, Mama Mia, the mega hit musical, Les Miserables, and songs from other favourites, such as Annie, Oliver and Matilda.  

 

With so many other show stopping tunes, and top notch performances, The Zodiac won the North West NODA Award for 1Best Concert1 at the awards ceremony at Crew Hall in January 2018. Jennifer Deakin accepted the award on behalf of the well-deserving cast.

9 TO 5

28th March - 1st April 2017

Director - Kriss Hubbard

Musical Director - Craig Price

Choreographer - Jessica Martin

Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss, Mr Hart. 

In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?

Auditions for this show took place in October 2016. The show opened in March 2017 and ran for 5 nights to fantastic reviews from the audience. It was the first time directing for Kriss Hubbard, and the first lead role in The Zodiac for Laura Johnson, who was nominated for Best Actress at the North West NODA Awards.
