We are pleased to announce, auditions are OPEN for our upcoming production of ‘DOWNTOWN’!
FEB-MAR 2023 AT THE BELCONNEN COMMUNITY THEATRE
Downtown, the revue musical celebrating the strong female singers of the mod era, focuses on the stories of 5 very different women.
Through the letters they send in to the teen magazine Shout we get to hear their stories as they come of age in the turbulent decade known as the swinging 60s. Their different personalities shine through songs such as Goldfinger, Son of a Preacher Man, You Don’t Have Say You Love Me, and of course the classic Downtown.
Taking us back to this time of hip-shaking dance moves, big hair and bright colours are Anita Davenport as director, Lauren Chapman as choreographer and Tara Davidson as musical director. This female powerhouse team is excited to bring this celebration of women finding a new voice and a new sound to the Canberra/Queanbeyan community. And who wouldn’t be? It’s downright groovy baby!!

The explosive movie musical bursts onto the live stage! With dynamic original songs augmenting the powerhouse hits from its bestselling Oscar-nominated score, Footloose celebrates the exhilaration of youth, the wisdom of listening to one another, and the power of forgiveness.
