Opening the 160th year of SoACT, Love Bites by James Millar and Peter Rutherford is a song cycle musical revue about falling in and out of love. A long time theme of relationships captured in music, song and dance.
Seven couples share their stories, the talented cast of seven play all seven couples: this in itself is a great challenge which they have risen to with great enthusiasm and expertise.
The revue highlights all the unlikely places couples meet and start their relationships, including an aeroplane, a florist shop, a mountain top or strolling through a zoo… One never knows where love can be found!
The overall diversity of this musical revue engages the audience in their stories and allows the audience to travel with them through the tender meetings to the sometimes triumphant, sometimes tragic conclusions.
The strong sparkle of satire, wit and innuendo is ever present in the show with the strong vocal ability of the cast and the energy of choreography will keep the feet taping and audience wanting more.
This is an original Australian work directed by Melissa Donges, with vocal coaching by Leah Ellis and pianist Hannah Caterer.
Mel Donges had also done the choreography for the show and plays one of the many roles.
Mel has a long history of great work in theatre in Wagga; Love Bites is her first time in the director’s chair.
Love Bites opens on Sunday February 3 at 3pm at the Basement Theatre and has a season running each Sunday of the month until February 24.
