Devonport Drama owner Geoff Allen shared the photo on Facebook, writing "Surprise audience at Devonport Drama's Fairytale The Musical yesterday. Lorde played the same role as Lucy in first production 10 years ago (and she even baked me shortbread.) "

Sadly, Allen did not post a photo of Lorde's baking.
