The Cast

St Godley's School for Young Ladies is facing bankruptcy and decide to stage their own musical version of Melville's novel, Moby Dick. 


After casting herself as Captain Ahab, the headmistress leads her anarchic, St Trinian-esque pupils on a romp through one of America's literary classics. The madcap mariners all pull together to catch the big white whale and fill the school's coffers.


From Nantucket to the wild, wide ocean, the girls of St Godley's take you on a whopping whale hunt. The bilges are bulging with laughs, fabulous songs, spectacular dance and surprises galore.


Join the Centre Stage crew as they set sail aboard the mighty Pequod in an adventure of epic proportions. This 'whale of tale' is sure to give  even the hardiest landlubber dancing sea legs.
