If you loved Roger Hall’s Four Flat Whites In Italy you wont want to miss Auckland Theatre Company’s hilarious comedy Stepping Out!
Each Thursday night ex-professional dancer Mavis Turner holds her weekly tap class for a mixed bunch of cheerful, if rhythmically challenged, women (and one very awkward man!). They're there just for fun, no one's watching, and no one ever will...that's until they're invited to put on a show with an audience of thousands!
Delight turns to sheer panic as the troupe set out on their exhilarating flight to fame. Stepping Out is a hilariously funny and heartwarming comedy about doing what you love - but doing it just a little bit better!
Tickets are available from Ticketek.
Christchurch director and choreographer Sandra Rasmussen will take up the role of both ex-Professional Dancer Mavis Turner and the real life choreographer for the show.
Rasmussen is one of New Zealand’s finest musical directors having appeared in over 90 productions at the Court Theatre. She comes to the show fresh with ideas and all the new steps being tapped out on Broadway after a recent trip to New York.
Penny Dodd is a pianist, conductor, arranger, composer and musical director of over 30 years experience in NZ, Australia and the UK, making her professional debut in a speaking role as Mrs Fraser in this production of Stepping Out.
Penny is best known for conducting musicals, musically directing twelve seasons of Coca Cola Christmas in the Park, and as arranger/conductor for the APO and the CSO in Symphonic Rock concerts.
