The Underpants | Sugary Rum Productions and Seymour Centre

It’s snickers over knickers in The Underpants.

The Glad Tomorrow | Katie Noonan and the Australian String Quartet

For those of us who were there, down to every man, woman and child, this was a performance that will linger long into our lives.

Ragtime | The Production Company

As its final show in our gorgeous State Theatre, The Production Company offers Melbourne a truly wonderful and benevolent parting gift in Ragtime.

Only You | James Flynn & Leah Guelfi

In Only You, Flynn creates a storyline about a young couple Joe and Marie, and the ups and downs of their romantic relationship.

Jekyll and Hyde

Anthony Warlow could sing binary code and it would be a delight but the man deserves as much praise for being a profoundly good character actor as he does for the joy of his voice.

Thigh Gap | La Mama

If you’ve ever wondered what women really do behind closed doors, then look no further than Thigh GapJamaica Zuanetti’s absurdist comedy is an uncomfortably relatable production, in which two 20 something women reveal all the “secret women’s business” the ladies have been concealing.

White Pearl | National Theatre of Parramatta/Sydney Theatre Company

For a first play this is not short on ambition, tackling not only racism from an underrepresented angle, but also classism, misogyny, cultural specificity in a globalised marketplace, corporate culture, and the currency of outrage in the social media age.

Mansion - The Experience | Bass Fam Creative

If you are intrigued by the idea of an evenings entertainment that will have you swept along in a Gothic tale of haunted yearnings then the latest offering from Bass Fam Creative, Mansion – The Experience is for you.

The Boy From Oz

One of the finest pieces of collective ensemble works seen for many years in Perth.

Magic Mike Live

Yes, the bodies you see are perfect specimens of sculptured sixpacks and biceps you could walk over and get at least 2000 steps in. But they are muscles moving bodies in marvellous ways. These boys can dance and every movement is potent.

Shrek The Musical

With the world struggling to find a new norm in these ever-changing circumstances, never has the phrase “the show must go on” been more apparent. 

Skylight | Verendus Theatrical/Red Phoenix Theatre

This is a production of which any director, cast and theatre company should be proud.
