Moving Light Productions is excited to announce that its leading lighting designer Jason Bovaird has been recently appointed as Head Of Lighting (Australia) on the West End London production of The Play That Goes Wrong.

The production has never been performed outside of Westend and is opening in Australia at the Comedy Theatre, Melbourne from 24th February and will then embark on a national tour to Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth.

Carrie The Musical AUG 2014, CARRIE - THE MUSICAL
Moving Light Productions is excited to have teamed up with Ghost Light and will present the Melbourne premiere of Carrie - The Musical for a three-week season at Chapel Off Chapel from September 25, 2014. MLP will be providing the production management, technical management and the lighting design for Carrie, while also being an associate producer with the award winning musical.

From the revised book, score and lyrics of the 2012 Off - Broadway production, for which 'Carrie' received critical-acclaim. The productions main topics relate directly to the recent horrific US high school massacres that unfortunately seem to be constantly in the media - which makes 'Carrie' more relevant than ever - with its themes of the consequences of bullying. This gothic, "anti-Cinderella" is a clear inspiration for iconic contemporary teen films 'Mean Girls' and 'Heathers'.

With Chelsea Gibb (Chicago, The King & I, Dreamsong) as Margaret White and Emily Milledge as Carrie White leading a company of Melbourne's most dynamic young music theatre performers, the production will be directed by Terence O'Connell, choreographed by Lisa Minett, with lighting by Jason Bovaird (Moving Light Productions), design by Jacob Battista and musical supervision by David Piper.
