    Shadows of Love: A Triptych // The Curators

    Held in the historic Christ Church in Milton, in the heart of Brisbane, this makeshift stage reverberated a resounding eerie vibe – especially during the spooky season! This hall served as a perfect backdrop for the trials and tribulations of Shadows of Love. Following the story of three plays, this production shows us the highlights,…

  • The Prince and the Prostitute // A New Australian Musical

    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.

  • Destiny Doomed // Observatory Theatre

    Destiny Doomed // Observatory Theatre

    Observatory Theatre’s Destiny Doomed is a brand new musical work written and produced right here in Australia. New musical works are very hard to come by, especially local ones, and it’s a true testament to Anina-Marie Van Wyk and Observatory Theatre’s commitment, drive and passion to create and produce original works.

  • We Will Rock You // Ipswich Musical Theatre

    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

    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 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. Rather, Murphy has approached this play as one that is influential and unique in its own right. This approach is clear…

  • The Pillowman / Good Time Theatrics

    The Pillowman / Good Time Theatrics

    Good Time Theatrics’ production of The Pillowman is a fiercely well written play worth seeing, which explores a myriad of ideas about truth and responsibility, in which there is no absolution, no answers and no happy ending.

  • Ruby Moon // Ad Astra

    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…

  • Disenchanted // Footlights Theatrical

    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…
