Seymour Performers Workshop is delighted to announce our 2020 season of productions and events. Kicking off the line-up in March is a comedy night featuring local comedians Jai Cameron and Ryan Smith, and a performance by renowned wind chamber music group Oxalis Wind Quintet. These performances will be presented at the Schoolhouse Theatre in Seymour on the 14th and 15th of March.
Other highlights this year will include two workshop sessions aimed at developing musical theatre skills. Star of stage and screen Rachael Beck, one of Australia’s leading performers and educators whose credits include Belle in Beauty & the Beast with Hugh Jackman, Fantine in Les Miserables and the TV sitcom Hey Dad, will bring her Stage to Screen Triple Threat Workshop to Seymour in May. There will also be a Musical Theatre Bootcamp held in April for younger performers.
Other productions include a Jazz & Blues Night, a Bush Poetry & Musical Soiree evening and in October Welded Shut Productions will present the play Lines. The always popular That’s Entertainment Trivia Night and the Seymour One Act Play Festival will also feature in the line-up.
Rounding off the year will be the major musical Godspell which will hit the stage at the Seymour Community Arts Centre in November. The 2012 revival version was a smash hit on Broadway and features a joyous and eclectic musical score that draws on rock, pop, folk, gospel and vaudeville influences.
