Musical society presents third installment of Showstoppers
Off the back of successful runs in 2013 and 2016, Maitland Musical Society will stage the third incarnation of Showstoppers through February.
Showstoppers – Standing Ovation features music from 30 different musicals including The Sound of Music, Mama Mia and Hamilton, with performers aged from three weeks to 70-years-old taking the stage.
Director Angie Hutchison-Ussher said that the performances are designed to show the breadth of the group’s talent.
“We could see how much talent our society had but not enough roles to showcase everyone,” she said.
“It became an opportunity for any of our members, whether you’re a singer, dancer, parent or orchestra member, to have a go in a show where it didn’t matter if you ‘looked’ the part or were the ‘right age’.
“It’s just a fun place for everyone to have the opportunity to have a go.”
Showstoppers – Standing Ovation will play at Club Maitland City on February 9 and 10 and East Cessnock Bowling Club on February 16 and 17. Tickets can be booked at trybooking.com or by calling 0434 799 343. For more information visit Maitland Musical Society on Facebook.
