Broadway delivers comedy, drama

AN ENGAGING and diverse night of entertainment in a fresh and innovative way was right on locals’ doorstep on the weekend.

Wonthaggi Theatrical Group built on the success of last year’s Bend It Like Broadway concert to deliver a brand new show using the premise of role-reversal of well-known Broadway numbers as well as comical and dramatic elements.

Bend It Like Broadway featured a cast of 10, with a range of local and Melbourne performers, allowing the program to highlight superb solos and create ensemble pieces rich with harmonies and energy.

Directors Will Hanley and Karen Milkins-Hendry were excited to present the show to audiences at the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre over the weekend.

The program featured old standards, contemporary classics and fresh interpretations of songs to surprise.

The local faces included Britt Lewis, Will and Sarah Hanley, Bron Kalos, Kerryn Moren, Brad Beach and Elly Poletti.

Each performer had graced the stage in many a memorable WTG or Leongatha Lyric Theatre productions.
