Director’s note

Currently, this show has never been performed outside of the USA. At my request, rights have been granted to an Australian distributor, David Spicer, to distribute the show in Australasia. Hopefully, this will be our second Australasian premiere.

Below is some basic information shared from the libretto. It gives you an idea of what the show is about.

The show was originally written for a cast of 6 but we will be using a cast of somewhere around 40. Therefore, our cast list will likely be quite different; we see the exciting ability with this show to give acting, dancing and singing opportunities to capable individuals who aren’t necessarily the named roles, as per the different parts listed below that each of the six played. That will be decided as a result of workshops/auditions in Term 4 Weeks 1 – 3. However, we will retain the core of lead characters too.

 

Streakin’!  is a kaleidoscopic musical flashback to the 1970s set in the USA.

Each scene introduces a cultural happening from the decade. Within each scene are memories related to those phenomena that tumble into each other and morph, ultimately creating a pop collage of the entire decade.

It is a comedy based in the joy of remembering a tumultuous and fast-paced time. Simultaneously (for the people who may not have these memories) there is the music. Each song authentically conjures up the original hit. Although the performers are not impersonating the original artists, they pay homage to the original hits by incorporating quirks and phrasing from those recordings and morphing them into refreshed and alive performances.
