That is what Noel Walker said people can expect from The Gang Show’s Mayhem at the Museum production this week.
The 75 cast members — who are scouts and guides aged between 10 and 26, from Otago and Southland — have been busy rehearsing for opening night in the Mayfair Theatre tomorrow.Mr Walker, who co-directed the show with Sue Walker, said the production was inspired by the concept of the movie Night at the Museum — set across a series of museum displays that come alive at night.
It features a 2.7m-tall, 3.2m-long dinosaur skeleton called Barry and a replica of the Wright brothers’ first aeroplane.
The music in the show was "completely" diverse, including everything from Alice Cooper, The Animals, and Gloria Estefan to Ariana Grande.
Mr Walker said there was also a "spectacular array" of costumes and even Beethoven and Elvis Presley would make an appearance.
"The main thing we work hard at is making sure it’s a really, really high-quality production.
"[The cast] work really, really hard ... they do an outstanding job when it comes to performing."
Mr Walker said the audience could expect a "great" theatrical experience.
"There is music, dancing, humour.
"It is a really good storyline, based around a dodgy director, a sharp accountant, and a detective.
"It all comes together with a happy ending, but with a few twists and turns along the way."
People of all ages would be entertained and "amazed" at what the cast were capable of, he said.
The show will be performed in the Mayfair Theatre at 7.30pm until Saturday.
