Coram Boy | bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company

Epic in scope, staging and soaring humanity, Coram Boy is a must see.

The Odd Couple | Ensemble Theatre

The Ensemble Theatre’s intimate space is the perfect setting for this wonderful revival of a classic play, with a beautifully directed cast that simply couldn’t be better at delivering this enduringly funny and at times surprisingly moving material.

The Drill | Women's Circus

As a space that facilitated the military training of young men from the Footscray community who were then sent to faraway battlefields, The Drill now fills this space with contemporary circus, theatre and music. There is historical reimagining of the impact of their leaving, a reimagining through a feminine lens.

West Side Story | Opera Australia and GWB Entertainment

When a much anticipated, professional production of a familiar and famous musical hits town, there is a buzz in the air, and the eager aficionados turn out in eager droves for the opening night.

Farnace | Pinchgut Opera

Farnace, Vivaldi’s personal favourite among his operas, and one of the most popular in his own time, was given its Australian premiere last night by the wonderful outfit that is Pinchgut Opera.
