Young actors surprise

Out there: the cast of 13 dance and sing outside Leongatha Memorial Hall.


THEY came, they saw, they danced. And just as quickly the cast of 13 was gone.

The Saturday morning flash mob performance outside Leongatha’s Memorial Hall saw a cast of young performers dancing and singing their way through the signature tunes from the musical. Stunned shoppers stood and stared. But few stayed still for very long. The infectious music quickly caught on and pretty soon even those casual onlookers were dancing.

When the performance was over the teens were back on their bus and off to Inverloch, with Wonthaggi and Cowes to come.

According to energetic leads Adam Turner and Meg Jinnette the performance was a huge success. No one who saw the show was going to argue.

“I was a bit nervous,” Adam admitted, “but I think it went really well.”

13’s going to be amazing. If people don’t come and see it they’re going to regret it. It’s going to be awesome,” Meg said.

13 choreographer Bron Kalos said was it was “so scary to do it in a space where we weren’t sure if it was going to work”.

But it did. Admirably.

The high energy show presented by the Wonthaggi Theatrical Group begins on Saturday, May 25, 2013 at 7.30pm at the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre.
