Our Pantomime Princess Alex Foster Returns for The Dancing Years!
It may take The Dancing Years audiences a little longer to recognize Alex Foster without a wig and gown. She last starred in Operatunity’s Cinderella: A Christmas Pantomime at the end of last year. Operatunity is thrilled to have her back on stage to demonstrate her musical prowess once more.
Alex’s start in the musical world was similar to many; a teacher in high school suggested she audition for the school musical and from that moment on she was hooked!
“I think it was a relief to a lot of my teachers that I found such a high energy outlet,” laughs Alex, “I was always very loud and talked A LOT, I always wanted to entertain my friends and make them laugh when we were in class.”
School musicals were only the beginning for Alex who went on to complete a Bachelor of Music in Classical Voice after high school. “I am so thankful for that teacher; I can’t think what I would be doing right now if I hadn’t gone to that audition!”
The Dancing Years is Alex’s third tour with Operatunity, and she is keen to hit the road and bring her love of music to Operatunity audiences across NZ, “I love getting to talk to everyone after the show, music brings people together, plus it’s so much fun touring with such a talented and fun group of performers.”
Alex will be joined in The Dancing Years tour by Karl Perigo, Alex Milligan, Hamish McGregor, Tainui Kuru and Kelly Harris.
The show is filled with fun and familiar song and dance numbers like Anything Goes, Puttin' on the Ritz, Stepping out with My Baby and Lullaby of Broadway.
