Both Warren and Phillip are incredibly excited to bring Avenue Q to life for the audiences of New Plymouth and have teamed up again with their synonymous dark sense of humour to create a kick-ass show that should have people in tears of laughter.

 



WARREN BATES

DIRECTOR

Warren has just come off a highly-acclaimed season of Oscar Wilde's 'The Importance of Being Earnest' with Cue Theatre in Inglewood, and is known for his unique flair of direction in New Plymouth Operatic's productions of Godspell, Cats, The Sound of Music, Miss Saigon, The Producers, Phantom of the Opera, Sister Act and recently Les Miserables. Warren also runs his drama school Stage Centre, New Plymouth, nurturing our local young talent and preparing them for opportunities in local productions and beyond.

 

 

 

 

PHILLIP MALCOLM

MUSICAL DIRECTOR

Phillip could not resist the temptation of this brilliantly hilarious show and the opportunity to work alongside Warren again after working on many shows together over the last 14 years . Phillip is known as 'The Mac Guy' in New Plymouth, running his business MacTorque by day and is also studying towards a Bachelor of Aviation Management by distance with Massey University. Phillip's MD credits include The Producers, Grease, The Wedding Singer, Mamma Mia, Sister Act and recently Priscilla: Queen of the Desert with New Plymouth Operatic.

 

 



PUPPETS

We are now the PROUD NEW OWNERS of this amazing family of Avenue Q puppets - who will share with us Kiwis in August this year - what life is all about on   ‘Avenue Q’. They have made appearances in many productions of Avenue Q whilst touring America since their birth in 2012, and are due to arrive around audition weekend in early March. We can’t wait to bring them to life for our audiences!
