I had the pleasure to catch a dress rehearsal for Villains and Vixens.
I had never been in the old Marian Chapel before but I was captivated immediately by its beauty. What a lovely space – and then to fill that space with singing and music and dancing was a treat.
Villains and Vixens is the latest production by the Rocky Hill Musical Theatre Company and this company has some great singing talent among its ranks.
The vocal range of Jane Van Dorp is on display as well as the amazing voices of Ebrentia Brits, Alex Ridley, Rachel Croft, Alecia Walker, Melissa Shoad, Brittany Lewis, Julia Galiazzo and
Nathaniel Pattinson – fresh from playing in Les Miserables in Queanbeyan. Alfie Walker will also be appearing, but really – this whole cast has tremendous talent and energy.
Popular songs from musicals such as Evita, Grease, Chicago, Wicked, Little Shop of Horrors, Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables and more are featured.
These songs are woven together with a clever and witty narrative, written by Chris Gordon and delivered by the emcees – Ant Lewis and Caitlin Jiear.
Villains and Vixens is on in the Old Marian College Chapel at 7.30pm on April 28, 29 and May 5 with a charity matinee performance on April 30 at 2pm.
