Savoyards. Co-Directors: Kaitlin Bell & Mathew Nutley. Musical Director: Mathew Nutley. Star Theatre, Manly, Brisbane, 10 November 2012
Savoyards finished their year with It Started out like a Song, a strong cabaret-concert whose proceeds went towards the purchase of a new grand piano at the Star Theatre. The show featured a cast of nine female singers, a Steinway grand, and songs which celebrated the piano and songwriters with material culled from the catalogues of Billy Joel, Peter Allen, Jason Robert Brown and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Aside from solos, there were duets, trios, lots of medleys, plus counterpoint and some a-capella. Best performances came from Emma Tavianni, Kimi Tsukakoshi and Kelli Ireland.
