Jake’s Women // St Luke’s Theatre Society

St Luke’s Theatre Society’s rendition of Jake’s Women was a very enjoyable night out at the theatre that challenged the audience to consider their own imagined inner worlds and the conversations they hold within their own minds. Bravo!

The Prince and the Prostitute // A New Australian Musical

Performed on 22 October at the Queensland Multicultural Centre, The Prince and the Prostitute presented an interesting and relatively obscure slice of Australian history. Written, directed and produced by Lindsay McGregor, this piece was extremely ambitious, taking on a complex love story between Prince Alfred and his favourite prostitute set in 1867.

The Producers // Queensland Musical Theatre

Queensland Musical Theatre’s production of Mel Brooks’ classic, The Producers, is uproarious. This show is everything it should be and more. Queensland Musical Theatre (QMT) and the company of The Producers should be immensely proud of this hilarious production that grips the audience from start to finish.

Ruby Moon // Ad Astra

Ad Astra’s latest show is a terrifyingly gripping journey through the unravelling psyches of Ray and Sylvie Moon following the disappearance of their daughter, Ruby. This decidedly absurdist play challenges audience perceptions and encourages us to question. And Ad Astra’s production certainly achieves what director Susan O’Toole-Cridland set out to do; the perfect conversation starter on a complex (and so extremely important) modern topic.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee // Brisbane Musical Theatre

Brisbane Musical Theatre’s production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a fun, crazy romp with an extremely talented cast that audiences are not likely to soon forget. This is a show you will not want to miss! But the season is short and the show will close tomorrow night (Saturday 9 July) so get in quick and buy your tickets tonight!
