Reception: The Musical - Trailer

— 19th May 2014 —

It's been such fun reliving the magic of our debut season of Reception: The Musical at The Butterfly Club.

A big thank you to Know Studio in Melbourne for providing us with hours of quality footage and to my assistant director/choreographer Joseph Simons for editing it down to this punchy little production trailer.

For those of you who came along, you may remember this line towards the end of the show:

"Everybody, come on! You're invited. Join me. Let's all sing along...."

Have a look at the video. On closing night, the audience did as they were told! A memorable moment in the theatre.

Watch, enjoy, share.

Reception: The Musical - Season wrap up

— 15th May 2014 —

We couldn’t be happier with the debut season of Reception: The Musical. Five sold out shows, seven ‘office parties’, an overflowing memo board, beautiful email responses and countless people telling us that their cheeks hurt from smiling!

It wasn't just receptionists and office workers that related to the story in Reception. In mingling with our audience after each show, we were thrilled to discover that all sorts of people felt validated and celebrated through our storytelling.

There are plans to perform Reception: The Musical again in the coming months. Be sure to join the mailing list to ensure you don’t miss the memo!

More importantly, we had a group of medical receptionists in this week. One of the ladies contacted me after the show. Her response is exactly why I set out to write this show. Here is a snippet from her email:

I have just arrived home after seeing Reception: the Musical and I had to tell you straight away; that was the best show I have ever seen!

I came tonight with three other women from work, all of us are medical receptionists and every single thing you said, we could relate to. We were constantly nudging or looking at each other in agreement because every thing you said happens at our work!

Your songs were hilarious and your voice is amazing. We had the best time tonight and we just had to thank you. I feel like I am going to work tomorrow with a completely different attitude. So thank you for a great night and for showing us that work is what you make it.

Hannah.
PROUD receptionist.
