Nothing Is Sacred, Nothing Is Spared!

September 21, 2005

Nothing Is Sacred, Nothing Is Spared!

Following on from the success of Onstage Productions Wellington’s past comedy revue shows, comes ‘The Naughty Rude Musical Revue’ an evening of politically incorrect madness and hilarity which is guaranteed to be a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable night out for all broad-minded adults.

A stellar cast of four seasoned performers has been assembled to present this mad evening of re-written musical theatre songs; from the ridiculous to the risqué; from politically incorrect satire to singing and dancing nuns, religion, sex and politics - nothing is sacred and nothing is spared!

The show is hosted by veteran theatre performer and director Kevin Baddiley who brings the ever popular Monica Middlesex (from Karma Sutra Choral and Dramatic Society fame) out of retirement for more good-natured audience banter and heckling. Karen Anslow, Lyndee-Jane Rutherford and Michael White complete the cast as they sing their way through a marathon of ‘naughty rude’ songs accompanied by musical director Stephen Walker (as Marjorie Mountjoy) on piano.

The performance requirements for a show such as this are very demanding; the range of characters played, many costume changes at the speed of light and the amount of vocal gymnastics and energy required would stretch any seasoned performer. Attention to detail is an important aspect of any Onstage production and this is especially evident in the costumes, beautifully created by wardrobe mistress of over twenty-five years experience Rae Plunkett.

Onstage Productions Wellington has been running for over a year now and has established a reputation as one of Wellington’s leading independent theatre companies. Founded by Kevin Baddiley and Michael White, with the patronage of Dame Kate Harcourt and Sir Jon and Lady Trimmer, Onstage has created, and performed to great critical success, many productions, tours and private events including; Make ‘Em Laugh!, The Dirty Rude Musical Revue, Cinderalfred and Blood Guts and Khaki.

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
