50 & Fabulous
Directed by Noeline Loader
This 60’s Musical Comedy directed by Noeline Loader has it all – laughter, drama, music and astonishing twists and surprises. The best part, an ensemble cast of eleven women ‘ of a certain age’ — -REAL WOMEN, Oh, and a couple of men.
A group of five fabulous friends, who met in College and have kept up regular get-togethers, are just about to turn the dreaded 50 years old — -and they are not looking forward to it !!! The onset of a mass female Mid-life crisis and the last minute cancellation of a popular singing group for a local fundraiser, sees them hatch a plan to put on a dazzling musical spectacular, and show their town that they are not past it and — — – 50 can be FABULOUS!

Thinking about auditioning with the Waihi Drama Society?
Auditions are run by the director and a WDS committee member and generally last about 10-15 mins (unless stated otherwise in the audition notice). There can be a bit of waiting around to get your turn so take the opportunity to meet some new people and have a chat. Once you’ve read for your part, the director may ask you to stay and read again with different people in different roles. Auditions generally involve a cold read from the script, however the audition process varies with each play and director so we suggest you read over any notes before attending your audition.
