Mid-life The Crisis Musical

UPDATE: Due to many reasons, we have been forced to cancel this show. We're sorry to not be able to bring this quirky, humorous production to Nelson, but we have many other exciting things in the works. Thank you to all who supported it in any way.

The weekend of February 13-14th, we are holding auditions for Midlife: The Crisis Musical.

It is a series of vignettes detailing the trials and tribulations of aging. The cast is comprised of 3 men and 3 women, who all play a variety of roles.

From the Origin Theatrical description: 

With a balanced look at the 'joys' of growing older

Little Shop

Tickets now available through iTicket only - early bird tickets of $35 available until October 31st! After that it's $40 so get in quick.

If there’s one thing we need to end 2020 it’s a foul-mouthed, smooth-talking, R&B-singing, man eating plant and a rocking good night out.

Nelson Musical Theatre is proud to present this iconic and cult classic musical to end their 2020 season.

Join accidental hero Seymour and the gutsy yet adorable Audrey as they fight for love, their lives and the very future of planet earth!
