This year's 10080 Minutes Project is fast approaching!
(A Musical in 10080 Minutes: One Musical. One week)

Some robbers, a few diamonds, a heist and one new musical. What could possibly go wrong?

CAST (in alphabetical order)

Hayley Cole - CASSIE
Jo Finnis - CONNER
Grace Slayter - LOUISE

The show starts at 7pm and entry is a gold coin donation!

Plus, there will be a musical movie showing of MOULIN ROUGE after the final performance. See you there!

----- How does/did this whole thing work? -----

On SUNDAY at 2pm the Scriptwriter (Sarah Campbell), Composers (Daniel Cullen and Matt McAnally) and Lyricists (Shannon Browne and Nib Oswald) were put into a team by the project coordinators (Erica Penollar and Mel McPhee) and given their stimulus: DIAMONDS.
Auditions were then held, and until 8PM the team began work on their initial idea.

MONDAY - TUESDAY - 6pm-11pm the writing team worked together in the Lighthouse Theatre!

WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY - FRIDAY 6pm-11pm the actors were introduced to their scripts and songs and began rehearsing.

SATURDAY 8th AUGUST: 9am-7pm rehearsals and then an 7pm show (Gold Coin donation for entry) with a musical movie screening afterwards (as we know 20-ish minute musicals are quite a bit shorter than what we are used to).

This is a super exciting project and we hope you’ll come and support it!
