Slava and Ross Mollison(l-r) Slava Polunin and Ross Mollison

Melbourne audiences will soon have the opportunity of seeing Slava's Snowshow the creation of world-renowned Russian Clown Slava Polunin. In one form or another Slava's Snowshow has been entertaining audiences, not only in Slava's native Russia but across the world, since 1993. The show has won wide acclaim both here and overseas and has been performed in over 30 countries, 100 cities and to more than 2.5 million spectators.

Ross Mollison, who has been producing the show in Australia and America for some ten years, is bringing Slava's Snowshow back to Melbourne in August and recently spoke with Australian Stage's Jan Chandler about his involvement with the show and what Melbourne audiences might expect.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This long-awaited show delivers all you can expect and is a veritable feast for the senses! As much fun as a Wonka Fudgie Wudgie (and as whimsical as a Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight).

Every Brilliant Thing | Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA

Performed in-the-round, by marvellously talented Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is a work of life affirming humour.

Eastern Promises | Opera Queensland

Before this concert began, Patrick Nolan, the artistic director of Opera Queensland, told us that we were in for a treat. But it was much more than that.
