Aaaand we are off! The journey for shows in 2022 is now well underway- with auditions, callbacks, casting and first full cast rehearsal done and dusted for the revamped Broadway Showcase. With a smaller cast and some different numbers to take into account the cast differences, HAC is back. It was such a great feeling to walk into HAC house and to hear the sound of voices in song and laughter as we got back to doing what we love so much.
There are some new faces and some returning faces after a break. Keep an eye out for when tickets go on sale, the joy our wonderful cast and crew will bring to the HTH stage after a 2 year break will be undeniable
Rehearsals are in full swing and things are getting finished off. What is clear is the absolute joy and energy that the cast is bringing to each rehearsal. What is coming together is going to be a smorgas board of musical moments that all the family can enjoy.
In the last couple of years, many of our HAC family have had additions arrive to their own families. We congratulate them all and look forward to seeing them grow up surrounded by theatre. Weddings have also abounded and is has been lovely to see snippets of those celebrations on social media. And we have lost dear past members, and we extend our sincere condolences to their loved ones.
Most of all we are also looking forward to what the rest of the year holds for us. What it looks like has not yet been decided, but we know that with the energy and excitement of getting to bringing local theatre back, in any form, whatever the next 8 months will look like, there will be colour, joy and talent abounding. Tickets for the Broadway Showcase are on sale, so grab some soon and get ready to enjoy the ride.
So keep your eyes out for show announcements, buy those tickets when they open for sale, support, your friends, family and the next-door neighbours who may take the plunge and have a crack at auditioning and performing this year. It is both terrifying and exhilarating. And come and celebrate with us - theatre is back and HAC is back.
