‘Diver-city’ in the Supercity. Aucklanders will be treated to a feast of diverse culture and music this August when Dominion Rd The Musical hits the stage.
In addition to being a world premiere, Dominion Rd The Musical is also the first production that mirrors Auckland’s diverse culture.
Author of the book and co-lyricist Renee Liang (Auckland Arts Festival 2017 Opera The Bone Feeder) has collaborated with co-lyricist and composer Jun Bin Lee (Ai the Musical, Karaoke Heaven) to create Dominion Rd the Musical, an original Kiwi production with authentic characters and catchy tunes that showcases the unique cultural diversity of Auckland.
Directed by Borni Te Rongopai Tukiwaho (2017 Auckland Pride Festival Gala, 2016 People Like Us, Atawhai Festival), the homegrown production will feature a professional cast of 5 as well as over 10 community members, many of whom have either past and/or present ties to Dominion Rd.
The professional cast are Jackie Clarke (founding member of The Lady Killers, former NZ Idol judge, Little Shop of Horrors), Marissa Holder (National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Arts graduate), Mustaq Missouri (Auckland Summer Shakespeare 2017’s As You Like It, Prayas Theatre’s productions of Love n Stuff and Swabhoomi: Borrowed Earth), Brady Peeti (Mirror Mirror, Larger than Life) and Benjamin Teh (The Bone Feeder, The First Asian AB, Bubblelands).
In addition, the creative team is equally diverse to represent Dominion Rd’s melting pot of diverse cultures.
Creative Producer Sharu Delilkan (Sharu Loves Hats) says: “We’re proud that our creative team also mirrors Dominon Rd’s demographic, which in turn is an apt representation of the cultural mix that gives Tāmaki Makaurau its unique flavour.”
