We are thrilled to announce that MATS Musical Theatre will be staging Footrot Flats - The Musical in November 2017. Performance dates will be 16th - 25th November at the Majestic Theatre in Ngaumutawa Road, Masterton.
The comic strip style is retained within the story in which town versus country as Cheeky tries to lure Wal away from the farm. The familiar characters of Wal, Dog, Cheeky, Aunt Dolly, Horse, Cooch, Prince Charles, Dolores and others provide between them two hours of music and laughter.
Written by Roger Hall with music by Philip Norman (an ex-Rathkeale College student) and song lyrics by A K Grant, the musical is based on the popular and original characters created by Murray Ball.
Auditions will be held on Saturday 2nd September with a pre-audition get together on the evening of Wednesday 30th August 2017. More details of these events will be posted at a later date, but put the dates in your diary NOW!
The production will be directed by Marilyn Bouzaid and will host a live band with musical direction by Andrea Thompson. Jackie Seta will oversee costume construction and Colin Dodd will be the stage manager for this production. Lighting direction will be by David Johnson.
