MUSICAL THEATRE TRIVIA NIGHT 1

Tuesday April 26th, 2005
Capers Melbourne


As the booming strains of the 'Annie Get Your Gun' overture hushed the crowd, an overhead voice welcomed the guests to the inaugural Magnormos Musical Theatre Trivia Night, and introduced them to their host for the evening - Julia Zemiro...


Friendly competition and social interaction ran on high at the inaugural Musical Theatre Trivia Night, with a veritable 'who's who' of Australian music theatre making up most of the competitors.  The stunning interior of Capers Melbourne was awash with colour, vitality and familiar faces, all battling it out for the mantle of Melbourne's top music-theatre fan.

11 teams waged war through six categories: "Introductions", "Sir Andrew", "Movie Musicals", "Rodgers and H", "Stephen Squared" and "Song Scramble" with plenty of opportunity for bonus points and individual prizes throughout, interspersed with performances by Melbourne's own international diva - Pastel Vespa.

Whilst the scores were frighteningly close, the Trump Team for the event was 'Sha-Boom' winning by a mere half point to second place winner 'The Tall Show Queens', followed closely by 'A-List'.  At first thought disadvantaged with only 7 members in their crew, Sha-Boom walked away with the major prize pack including bottles of wine, CD Soundtracks, Souvenir programs, CD Vouchers, and much more.

In the final test of music-theatre mettle, "Knockout - One Fan Standing" every competitor was offered the chance to stand and play as individuals, requiring a steady stream of correct 'yes/no' answers to stay within the competition (or face elimination).  As players fell, the anticipation grew, and the eliminated competitors watched with interest as the numbers of people standing diminished.  In a final brave battle, it was genetics student Sally Elliot who wrested the individual title of 'Musical-Theatre-Know-It-All' - AND a major prize consisting of Mamma Mia tickets and a personally signed Stephen Schwartz pack!

Congratulations to Sha-Boom, Sally, and all the other players who won the many prizes awarded throughout the night, and thank you to all who came and supported the event.
