INTRODUCTION

Welcome to Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University for our annual musical production, unquestionably one of the highlights in our calendar. 42nd Street brings together not only all our musical theatre students but involves students and staff from across the entire Conservatorium, with support from the university, to bring it all together. As you will hear and see, while the cast is large and the band also sizeable, the full ensemble (including the many behind the scenes) is even more epic! While wishing to acknowledge all involved for their efforts, not least given the challenging circumstances which continue to surround us, I do want to draw attention to Professor Paul Sabey for his extraordinary leadership of the Performing Arts program. Paul was recently recognised by Griffith University with its highest accolade in relation to Teaching Excellence. Together we say, “Thank you Paul”! Last year’s success of Grease, including the subsequent transfer to QPAC, represented a further stage in appreciation of the strength of the QCGU’s Performing Arts program, also evident in the range of student and alumni successes that have been manifest over the past 12 months. Since Grease, it was exciting personally to witness alumni in major roles in An American in Paris and Frozen! (to name but two shows also in the Lyric Theatre at QPAC) and I am sure there have been many more. We look forward to building on this momentum over the coming years as we seek to make South Bank ever more vibrant and inter-connected. Building out from last year’s successes, it is lovely to welcome back Alister Smith to direct the show, again alongside Dan Venz and Heidi Loveland. Special acknowledgement is due too, to Associate Professor Peter Morris, not only as conductor for the production but also in his role as the Conservatorium’s Deputy Director (Engagement) which oversees all dimensions of our Production, Engagement and Outreach. It is always heartening when the overview is linked so intimately to the

delivery of the musical detail in such an organic way. Having seen the set coming together over the past weeks, I wanted to thank Penny Challen for bringing her fresh inspiration into the artistic mix. We are fortunate at the Conservatorium to feel supported so closely at multiple levels in the university. Under the assured direction of Professor Scott Harrison (Pro Vice Chancellor AEL), all elements of the Arts Education & Law Group central team (and in particular the Marketing & Communications team) have offered constant care while the degree of investment from across the University’s Senior Leadership - under the inspiring leadership of Professor Carolyn Evans - is also deeply heartening for the entire Conservatorium community. Thank you for your presence! We trust you will enjoy the show and look forward to welcoming you to other upcoming events in the coming weeks, months, and years. Thanks to many of you for your support over the years, both through your attendance and philanthropy; for those new to the Conservatorium and to our Theatre, welcome to our special home!

Professor Bernard Lanskey Director, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University


WELCOME

Following the success of Grease last year, it gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to our production of 42nd Street, featuring the third year musical theatre students along with the second and first year students. We have been delighted to welcome back director Alister Smith to direct this production for us, musical director Heidi Loveland to musically direct and Dan Venz to choreograph what I’m sure you’ll agree is an amazing production and showcase for this talented group of students. In 2016, The Secret Garden was the first production in which musical theatre students performed with the Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra. This was followed by West Side Story in 2017, and then Les Misérables in 2019. I am grateful to all the students playing tonight under the baton of conductor Peter Morris, who agreed to join us for one of the most iconic pieces of musical theatre repertoire. This production is the result of an incredible amount of hard work from many people, too many to single out. However, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the performing arts teaching staff who have helped the students prepare for this production; the instrumental teaching staff and Heads of Departments; the technical team for making this theatre come alive and the performing arts administration for their continued dedication to the students. It’s been exciting working with our set and costume designer, Penny Challen. Creating for the era with such a large cast is no mean feat—there are more than 1,200 items of costume, and in excess of 150 light bulbs in the set. Although we started planning for this show more than twelve months ago, the students commenced at the start of this year with a weekly tap boot-camp (in addition to their normal tap classes). To quote a line from the show, “You’re gonna dance until your feet fall off, till you’re not able to stand up any longer, but five weeks from now, we’re gonna

have a show”, and a wonderful show we have (although it took a little longer!). This year, the third-year students presented the musical revue Putting It Together in our studio theatre in Woolloongabba. Following the season of 42nd Street, they will work towards their final showcase (alongside the Bachelor of Acting students), before graduating in December. Musical theatre takes more than just being able to sing a few songs. It takes a commitment to the text, the music and the physicality—these students have worked extremely hard to be the best they can at all three and to them, thank you. Thank you for allowing us to provide you with the very best opportunities to help you develop into fine young performers. I’m excited to see them follow in the paths of the many graduates from this program who are enjoying wonderful careers in performing arts, teaching or the many other related industries. Once again, thank you for joining us here. I hope you have as much pleasure watching this wonderful production as we have had putting it on.

Professor Paul Sabey Head of Performing Arts, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University

SYNOPSIS

Based on the 1932 novel by Bradford Ropes and the subsequent 1933 Hollywood film adaptation, 42nd Street is a Tony and Olivier Award winning musical with lyrics by Al Dubin and Johnny Mercer and music by Harry Warren. In addition to songs from the 1933 film 42nd Street, it includes songs that Dubin and Warren wrote for many other films at around the same time. The musical is set at the height of the Great Depression and tells the story of talented young performer Peggy Sawyer. With stars in her eyes and armed with her tap shoes, Peggy arrives in New York City from her hometown in Pennsylvania. Her talent catches the eye of famed Great White Way (Broadway) director Julian Marsh, who gives her a role in the chorus of Pretty Lady, a musical he is attempting to mount. Pretty Lady stars Dorothy Brock, a diva whose best days are behind her, and who dislikes Peggy instantly. When Dorothy is injured shortly before the show opens, Julian is persuaded to have Peggy take the leading role. Peggy’s rise from showgirl to star is the stuff of show business dreams. 42nd Street is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.

DIRECTOR’S NOTE

42nd Street is the perfect musical antidote for our time. After the past few years we need a musical that celebrates hope, optimism and happiness. 42nd Street is a multi-Tony Award and Olivier Award winning musical born in 1980, and based on the 1932 novel by Bradford Ropes and the subsequent 1933 Hollywood film adaptation. It’s a classic backstage musical that follows the rehearsal process of a Broadway show being put on during the height of the great depression. This was the first of the jukebox musicals and none have come close to its brilliance. In addition to songs from the 1933 film 42nd Street, it includes songs that Al Dubin and Harry Warren wrote for many other films at around the same time, including Gold Diggers of 1933, Roman Scandals, Dames, Gold Diggers of 1935, Go into Your Dance, Gold Diggers of 1937 and The Singing Marine. 42nd Street has been on my directorial bucket list for my entire professional career. It was the first musical I ever saw way back in the late 1980s when the original Australian production was touring the country. Something changed in my DNA that day as we sat and watched the Saturday matinee at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne. Something was planted, something that would cause me to spend a life dreaming and creating. To this day, whenever I’m in a theatre I’m still that little boy in 1989, hanging over the balcony fixated on the magic of theatre and the extraordinary experience of escaping into the magic of imagination. 42nd Street is set in 1933 in New York City, the home of Broadway, during one of the darkest times the world has seen. People across the globe lost their life savings, their jobs, and were desperately trying to keep a roof over their heads and food in their bellies. New York was the epicentre of this global catastrophe. Through our production we have focused on this grit and the power art has on restoring hope in troubled times. Through Penny Challen’s brilliant monochromatic design, we see colour punch through as hope and life returns to the city through the magic of theatre. Through Dan Venz’s genius and magnificent choreography, combined with Heidi Loveland’s incredible musical virtuosity, we escape into a world of joy and vitality, where our imaginations are ignited, and we are inspired to take on a new day.

This is the timeless showbiz fable of “rags to riches”; nothing encapsulates the American dream more than this musical. It tells the story of the strength and hope of the human condition in times of great crisis. Our hero Peggy arrives in New York armed with her tap shoes and a dream. Her rise from showgirl to star is the stuff of show business legend. She re-ignites the hope of Broadway and brings light and colour back to the darkness all around her. 42nd Street celebrates the tenacity of the human spirit and especially the resilience of the performing artist. Our world has just been through some very dark times. We are still grieving and hurting. These students know first-hand what it was like to see their industry completely disappear with their futures and dreams hanging in the balance as we dealt with the global pandemic. Going through this darkness has galvanized the fundamental importance and civic duty of theatre and live art. Theatre has never been more vital than it is today! It is a place to commune, heal, laugh and evolve. A place where our community can dream again. “Think of Broadway damnit!”
