Thank you to all of those involved in our first week of rehearsals. It was fantastic to hear the first few songs coming together. Lots of fun seeing some of the stretching and choreography. We can’t wait to see what next week will bring, as our Merry Murderous’ come on to the scene.
Just a reminder to all cast members that you are welcome and invited to every rehearsal. If you come along we will always have something to do. Be it running lines, practicing movements, helping our costume team search upstairs etc. So please don’t feel that you can’t come along. All cast are more then welcome to every rehearsal.01
A good start for the show.

Today is the final round of auditions for Chicago. We have had lots of interest and heaps of amazingly talented people audition for the show. The casting panel will sit down now and hold call backs on Wednesday evening, and casting announcements will be made once that is complete. Thank you all for you patience.
The amtc AGM was held last night (Mon 10th) and was a fairly brief affair. There was no need for ballots as there was just one nomination for each position. So a pleasant social evening chatting and drinking champagne was had by all.
Thank you David Foley for acting as Returning Officer.
The committee is:
President Dennis Ross, Vice President Rosemary Royter, Treasurer Velma Walker, Secretary Merrin Ross.
Ron Hawthorne, Tyson Dinnie, Marie De La Torre (Marie is also Public Officer), Leanne Watson, Catherine Sykes
