Pippin - Melbourne 2011
MLOC presents Pippin. with music
& lyrics by Stephen Swartz (Godspell, Wicked) and book by Roger O. Hirson
Pippin is based on the life of Prince Pippin, son of King Charlemagne who reigned 768–814 AD. The Leading Player and his troupe tell of Pippin’s experiences as he strives to have an extraordinary life. Pippin traverses through the trials of war, love, and politics before finding himself out amongst the peasants - away from the wealth and privilege of royal life. He ends up falling in love with a widow, Catherine. In the end, the Leading Player tries to convince Pippin that an extraordinary life must have an equally extraordinary end and to just commit suicide. Pippin resists and decides to spend the rest of his life with Catherine and her young son living a simple, but happy life.
Annie - Melbourne 2010

It is 1933 and eleven-year-old Annie is in the Municipal Girls Orphanage, along with Molly, who is six, Kate, who is seven, Tessie, who is ten, July, who is twelve, Pepper, who is twelve and Duffy, who is thirteen. When Molly awakes from a bad dream at 3:00AM, Annie comforts her. Molly then asks her to read the note her parents gave her in 1922, when she was left at the doorstep of the orphanage. The note says that her parents will come pick her up, so Annie is always hopeful that they are still out there.

Beauty and The Beast Show - Melbourne 2009
Once upon a time - a spoiled selfish YOUNG PRINCE lived in a glorious castle. One night an old beggar woman asked for shelter from the bitter cold.
Repulsed by her the Prince turned the old woman away. Warned not to be deceived by appearances, for beauty is to be found within, and the old woman's ugliness melted away to reveal a beautifull ENCHANTRESS.
As punishment, she transformed him into THE BEAST and placed a powerful spell on the castle and all who lived there. She gives him an enchanted rose, and if he could learn to love another and earn their love in return before the last petal fell, the spell would be broken.
And then... well, the rest of this beautiful and energetic story is not to be missed.

"Cats are much like you and me". They have their own family home but venture out at night to meet with the rest of their tribe.
Once the humans have left, the cats reveal themselves on stage. They explain to the audience the world of the Jellicle tribe.
The cats then explain that cats have three different names. The name used by the family, a more dignified name and a secret name.
Tonight is a special night for the Jellicle tribe. For tonight is the night of the Jellicle Ball, where one cat will be chosen to journey to the Heaviside Layer to be reborn into a new Jellicle life.

Dodger takes him to his home, an academy for orphans who learn how to be pick-pockets run by a kind, yet slightly sinister, old gentleman named Fagin....
