News from Director David Parsonson: Thank you to everybody for the hard work put into the auditions. It has been a very time consuming and difficult task to complete casting, taking in to account vocal colour, clarity, visual depth, colouring, height variation, commanding security and visual group eccentricities, that would play with the audiences emotions and ensure their acceptance. I look forward to seeing the “sunflowers grow”.
