STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL is the inspiring story of a championship ballroom dancer who defies all the rules to follow his heart. This uplifting and courageous tale originated as a stage play that Baz Luhrmann created as a student at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA) in Sydney back in 1984.

FEATURING SONGS FROM THE 1992 HIT FILM including "Love is in the Air", "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" and "Time After Time", as well as new songs from internationally acclaimed artists and composers such as Sia, David Foster and Eddie Perfect. Strictly Ballroom has become an iconic Australian musical with a love story as its heart and a lot of ballroom dancing as its attraction. The story, the characters, the plot and the music couldn’t happen anywhere else in the world except in Australia in 1985!

This iconic Broadway musical by legendary songwriter Jerry Herman first graced the Broadway stage in 1966 - running for over 1500 performances.

It’s now back in Sydney!

Who is Mame? There's surely one in every community, often there's one in every family. Some of the wild, exploratory spirit of Mame bubbles in each and every human being who believes that "life is a banquet!". This notorious Auntie Mame is a swinger; a vogue-following, high-living friend to everyone. Together with her friend Vera, Auntie Mame opens everyone’s eyes to the wonders of the world.

The show features such musical hits as “Bosom Buddies”, “We Need a Little Christmas”, “Open A New Window”, and that show stopping ensemble number “Mame”. Join us in the beautiful surrounds of the Concourse Concert Hall for two spectacular concerts of this much loved musical - with principals, dancers, orchestra and choir.

Book by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee
Music and Lyrics by Jerry Herman
Based on the Novel by Patrick Dennis and the Play AUNTIE MAME by Lawrence and Lee
Original Choreography by Onna White
Original Direction by Gene Saks
Produced for the New York Stage by Fryer, Carr & Harris

Everyone’s favourite ogre is coming to the Concourse stage in the hilarious stage spectacle based on the Oscar-winning, smash hit film.

“Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty Princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand... and his name is Shrek.

This musical will continue the spectacular success of our recent large scale productions of Wicked and Mary Poppins. Featuring dazzling sets and costumes, it will run for 15 performances only, with plenty of matinees for kids both young and old at heart. Don’t miss what is set to be a joyous end to our 2018 season!
