Evita

Opera Australia presents the original West End and Broadway production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita, directed by Hal Prince and featuring Tina Arena.

Featuring some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best-loved songs including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another HallEvita charts the story of Eva Perón, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Perón, from her humble beginnings through to the extraordinary wealth, power and status which ultimately led her to be heralded as the ‘spiritual leader of the nation’.

Calamity Jane

White Hat suggests that if you are looking for a mainstream musical with full orchestra and stage effects that will be safe for your out-of-town relatives, this is probably not the show you're after. If, on the other hand you think you would enjoy a raunchy cabaret-style (in keeping with the western saloon Calamity Jane inhabits) pared-down production where certain members of the audience become part of the show at tables on stage, then this may well be your cup of tea (or something stronger).

Warnings:  This show contains simulated smoking, nudity, obscene language, strobe lighting and fog/haze effects.

Les Misérables

Following its acclaimed, sell-out youth production of Wicked in 2018, the Young Australian Broadway Chorus is proud to present Les Misérables in 2019.

The YABC is well known for its programmes and productions for young people. Each year, thousands of children and young adults participate in musical theatre training with the organisation, culminating in performances at the National Theatre. Former students have appeared in leading roles in some of the biggest shows in the country. This production features some of Melbourne's most outstanding young singers and actors.

Jersey Boys

Jersey Boys is the story of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music success stories. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide – all before they were thirty!  Worldwide hits include Big Girls Don’t Cry, Sherry, Walk Like A Man, Oh What A Night and Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.
