Song Contest - The Almost Eurovision Experience - Review
Posted Wednesday, May 16, 2018 1:00:00 PM
When it comes Eurovision, one often thinks of eccentric performers, obscure costumes, hosts who can't host, oversized flags and mediocre performances. Geelong Lyric Theatre Society hilariously produced all of this in their recent production of 'Song Contest the Almost Eurovision Experience', a loving, yet comedic tribute to Eurovision or perhaps more of a send-up of all the things we love about Eurovision.

Despite the Chapel being an extremely popular venue for the Melbourne theatre scene over recent years, taking our seats upon waiting for Stage Art's 'bare' to begin offered a much different, more authentic and thought-provoking welcome.
Beautiful - Review

As soon as the overture began, the audience was taken back to the times of the 50s. A time when, big hair, big egos and big cars saw the ever-mesmerising barefoot Carole King take the world by storm with her incredible talent. The musical is packed with a jukebox of lively music and theatrical perfection.
42nd Street - Review

From the minute the curtain was raised, well half raised to thigh height, the audience was mesmerised with the incredibly clean and polished tap manoeuvres.

The colourful, larger than life characters were well cast, and the impressive costumes crafted the stage with authentic looking fabrics and styles, supported by the set and props.

Grey's Lobotomy - Review
Posted Tuesday, June 23, 2015 9:21:35 PM
As musical theatre writer, Xavier Brouwer, of new Australian musical ‘Grey’s Lobotomy’, suggests himself, ‘it boggles the mind that a hundred years after Florence Nightingale demonstrated the importance of smoothly running public health systems, we still can't get it right’. In fact it really is quite laughable, and as such, provides some great material for a high-energy satirical musical.

The Completely Improvised Musical
Posted Thursday, April 2, 2015 7:34:19 PM
We're often taught that musical theatre and improvisation are a dangerous concoction that should be avoided at all costs. Typically, this idea is instilled into us by directors with a strict vision, looking to present a production of the highest quality. But is there any real correlation between the inclusion of improvisation and audience enjoyment?
