Multiverse-Theory-in-D-web-imageMultiverse Theory in D

The Blue Room & Ellandar Productions

Runs 19 Nov – 5 Dec

 

 

 

About the show:

On the eve of her 30th birthday, Naomi has it all. A high-paying job, a good looking boyfriend and a great social life. But an unexpected run-in with an ex leaves her wondering – what if things had turned out differently?

Combining theoretical physics and jazz, the play explores three different versions of Naomi’s life: the high flying career woman, the baby-wearing Earth Mother, and the sultry jazz singer. As Naomi is catapulted from one version of her life to another, she begins to concoct a plan. What if she can cease to exist in one reality and take up residence in another? But not all is quite what it seems on the other side of the black hole…

Developed with assistance from The Ground Floor Program (Stages WA in association with The Blue Room Theatre), Jessica Messenger’s Multiverse Theory in D explores the age old question: what if?

 

Recommended for audiences 16+

Written and directed by Jessica Messenger.

Blak Yak and Phoenix Theatre Inc

Runs 19 Nov – 5 Dec

 

 

 

About the show:

“Cheers meets Red Dwarf meets Rocky Horror” in this tack-tastic naughty show set in a galaxy far, far away….
As the audience settle back for an evening of cosmic cabaret, all is not well at Saucy Jack’s… The evil shadow of a serial killer looms over the bar; cabaret acts are being killed off one by one, found stabbed by the heel of a sequinned slingback shoe.

WARNING: This show contains crude language, adult situations, drag, bad wigs, disco beams and glitter! With music set to country rock, gospel, blues and disco, it’s everything a trash- talking musical should be!

The show contains no swearing, nor is there any nudity however the show is not intended for young audiences. It is brash without being offensive… It is sexy but not lewd… It is cool and crazy but never chaotic… and it pretends to be a little more racy than it really is.

Directed by Lorna Mackie

Cabaret style seating.

A_man_of_no_importance-300x180A Man of No Importance

Playlovers and Irish Theatre Players

Runs 20 Nov – 5 Dec

 

 

About the show:

A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE is a rare gem in the canon of musical theatre, one which combines the depth and drama of a play with the lyricism and comedy of a musical. This is the second successful collaboration by the team of Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, all of whom won Tony Awards for Ragtime. The score is a contemporary one infused with Irish charm and includes soaring ballads and toe-tapping ensemble numbers. 

It tells the story of Alfie Byrne, a bus driver in 1964 Dublin, whose heart holds secrets he can’t share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When Alfie attempts to put on an amateur production of Wilde’s Salome in the local church hall, he confronts the forces of bigotry and shame over a love “that dare not speak its name”. But the redemptive power of theatre changes his life and brings his friends back to his side. Winner of the 2003 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, A Man of No Importance is a tender and beautifully woven tale of love, friendship and coming to terms with who we are.

Directed by Andrew Baker 

Musical Direction by Tim How
