Destiny Doomed // Observatory Theatre

Observatory Theatre’s Destiny Doomed is a brand new musical work written and produced right here in Australia.

We Will Rock You // Ipswich Musical Theatre

Visually, Ipswich Musical Theatre’s production is effective and, musically, it has some very strong elements. The show itself is cheesy and loveable and this production delivers true to this. The main attraction is most definitely the music of Queen and a crowd-pleasing version was delivered.

Marvin’s Room // Ad Astra

Ad Astra’s production of Marvin’s Room is hilarious and gut wrenching. Though there are challenges for the team, the entire cast and crew have created a fantastic night out for anyone, and it is worth the trip into the Valley!

The Rover // Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble

The director of the Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble’s recent production of The Rover, Rebecca Murphy, apparoched Aphra Behn’s text through a pro-feminist lens and did not rest on the laurels of Shakespeare to get by.

Disenchanted // Footlights Theatrical

Footlights Theatrical’s Disenchanted is a fun, frantic fractured-fairy-tale-meets-cabaret that sticks a dazzling middle finger squarely in the face of a certain mouse-shaped media conglomerate. Director Ros Johnson must have wished upon a star to assemble a cast that is well-equipped for this satirical venture: 9 talented performers who each bring a unique edge to these familiar characters.
