SHREK THE MUSICAL JR

Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical.  It's a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance.  Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.

Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek.  One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task — if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

With abundant opportunities for imaginative sets and costumes, and a host of over-the-top roles for an expandable cast, there's a part for everyone in this dazzling adventure story.

Pete the Sheep

featured

Adapted by Monkey Baa in 2014 from the picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, with foot-tapping music and lyrics by Phil Scott and comedic direction by Jonathan Biggins, Pete the Sheep is a lively and mischievous award-winning musical for young audiences and their adults. Shaun isn’t like the other Shearers in Shaggy Gully… he’d rather be styling than shearing and instead of ‘sheep-dog’, he has a ‘sheep-sheep’ named Pete. After being rejected by the shearers and their dogs, Shaun and Pete set up their own Shearing Salon in town and before long word is out and they are inundated with woolly clients and maybe a Ringer or two! This hilarious show, imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual and will be a lasting tribute to honoring your own spirit and strength, whilst working with the flock.

REBEL

David Bowie Glam Rock Circus

Rebel is a live circus rock tribute to the original rebel, David Bowie. Stage dive into the mosh pit for a night of live music, glittering glam rock, phenomenal acrobatics, breathtaking aerials and spectacular heart stopping sideshow. Live music combined with circus and comedy brings to life an incredible body of work that spanned over 50 years, and an aesthetic that broke ground and inspired generations.

Rebel has been inspired by the words of Bowie; "I want to tart rock up. I don't want to climb out of my fantasies in order to go up on stage—I want to take them on stage with me.” Rebel is your Bowie fantasies realised - a live band, breathtaking circus, spectacular rock and roll sideshow. Rebel is much more than a tribute show, with aesthetics and theatricality inspired Bowie and fed into a live rock and roll circus extravaganza.

Headlined by the incredible multi-award winning Stewart Reeve, and featuring an rockstar band of artists from across artistic genres and co-created by Highwire Entertainment, the production house behind Rouge, Papillon and Pop Party Throwdown among others, Rebel is a non-stop circus rock and roll party.

Akmal – Open for Renovations

Have you always wanted a perfect body, with rock hard abbs and buns of steel without ever getting out of bed?

Imagine having enough confidence to get out of your car during a road rage incident that wasn’t your fault, instead of apologising and cowardly driving off as quickly as you can.

If you have ever wanted to be so financially wealthy that you could pay Rupert Murdoch to drop his pants and perform a silly dance while singing in a high pitch voice, just for a laugh.

Well in this one-hour show, Akmal will be asking the audience if they know how he can achieve these things.

A life changing experience or your money back.

Blooms Sings Image

Stevie Nicks, Carole King and Linda Ronstadt are arguably three of the world’s most recognizable voices.  With combined record sales topping in excess of over 300 million units sold as well as an endless wealth of top 20 hits between them, they truly are three of the world’s greatest. In this brand new show, Melbourne singer/songwriter, Bloom, will have you experience the incredible hits that span several decades from the Grammy Award winning artists.

Stevie Nicks is best known as the vocalist and songwriter for Fleetwood Mac but is also a chart-topper in her own right. Collectively, her work both as a member of Fleetwood Mac and as a soloist has produced over forty top 50 hits and sold over 140 million records. She is celebrated as one of the world’s top “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Hailing as one of the 20th century’s most successful female songwriters and having penned over 118 pop hits on the Billboard Hot 100, Carole King is also a New York Times best-seller for her memoir ‘A Natural Women’ and has also had the story of her life played out on Broadway for Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.  She has been inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall Of Fame and recipient of a Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song – the first woman to be honoured. 

Linda Ronstadt is a name familiar with many and one that spans numerous genres. She is one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time whose voice and naive sex appeal have sold her in excess of 100 million records globally.  She has released over 30 studio albums, is the winner of 11 Grammys, three American Music Awards and one Emmy Award.

And then there’s Bloom, a singer in her prime belting out the songs of these three wonderful Women.  Bloom is highly applauded as one of Australia’s greatest power vocalists in her own right and has already garnered International acclaim for her effortless soulful vocal resonance of power vocalists Adele and Amy Winehouse with her Adele & Amy Songbook tour and more recently a national tour performing the hits of one of her idols in the Linda Ronstadt Songbook.

Come and be charmed by the Australian vocal powerhouse that is Bloom and celebrate all that is Stevie Nicks, Carole King and Linda Ronstadt.

Seasons greetings music lovers, time to “Deck the shed with bits of wattle” and join award winning performer, Darren Coggan, as he celebrates the joy of being Home For Christmas, through a collection of songs and stories that embrace the festive spirit of Christmas in Australia.

Home For Christmas is a fun and engaging performance full of laughter and sing-a-long songs that promises to be the gift of the season. As his thoughts turn to home, strumming a guitar, Darren reimagines much loved Christmas favourites, reminiscing warm childhood memories of family and friends.

Joining Darren on stage for some Christmas frivolity, a very special appearance from Santa Claus himself, as he drops by to check that the ‘Boomers’ are all set to go on his Australian run.

However you celebrate the Christmas season, whether with a fond memory of a loved one, a longing for someone far away or in the company of family and friends, may you find peace and indeed be Home For Christmas.

Darren Coggan is one of Australia’s most exciting and diverse artists, a masterful storyteller with a knack of weaving fascinating and perceptive tales through his songs. From humble beginnings, strumming a guitar by ‘the ‘Bidgee’ river in his beloved hometown of Wagga Wagga, to selling out The Sydney Opera House Concert Hall with Peace Train The Cat Stevens Story, Darren has forged a unique, diverse career that has seen him embrace the Australian Country Music, Musical Theatre and Television industries with aplomb.

“It was the boy from Wagga Wagga, Darren Coggan, who emerged as the evening’s king of hearts. Coggan has a fresh, powerful, expressive voice, and he just oozed style.” THE AUSTRALIAN

“Coggan’s musical story-telling is outstanding, as is his singing and playing." SUNDAY HERALD SUN
