WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...
The original cast plus some local musical theatre students join forces to read and sing through the latest draft of the show which included 4 new songs, and a revised libretto.

Rehearsing new material ahead of All Nighter's second run. Laura and Rickey wrote three new songs for this production including cast favourite 'Breathe'.
'The combination of the well-crafted libretto and the fantastic music had me laughing one minute and literally in tears the next.'
'Each cast member delivered a seemingly faultless performance.'
'The fully staged, brilliantly orchestrated mini-musical performed to a level that suggested weeks rather than three days of rehearsals.'
