In its Australian premiere, the newest iteration of Stalker: the Musical explores themes of love and fear in a nameless town under the control of an all-powerful Mayor. When a Stranger wanders into the lives of the townspeople, he introduces new ideas that completely change what they’ve always thought to be true.
The team behind Little Triangle are at it again, bringing forgotten musical theatre gems back to the stage for a new audience. This time, instead of a single show, there are a lot of little bits plucked from their narrative context and woven into A Little Cabaret.
Mr Gørski is on the run for being too entertaining! He’s found a secret hideout, so he’s safe for now, but since we’re all here, he may as well show you some tricks! A clown under pressure does prove to be awfully entertaining.
In Maestro Lee Bracegirdle’s inaugural program since being appointed Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Woollahra Philharmonic Orchestra, the spring program was a bold welcome to the new season with some beautiful classics played wonderfully by the full orchestra. Equally exciting was the accompaniment by two internationally renowned soloists to the concert’s proceedings.
The modern world is shifting and changing, becoming ever more unstable with increased house prices and rental numbers, the casualisation of the work force, and an overall rough globe politically.

Everything spills out over the Thanksgiving dinner table.
Cheap Noods is about growing up queer in Australia and still managing to turn out alright: happy and funny. Ally Cockrell and Kim Greaves are a couple who put together this show to show off their relationship and celebrate Aussie queerness.
The Acacia Quartet comes together with Matt Withers on classical guitar to share a program of emerging and established Australian composers including some brand new pieces from prize-winners from the 2018 Australian Music Composition Competition. Fusing a classical guitar with their inventive and unorthodox tone and technique brings another dimension to this string quartet. Sharing a thematic link of landscape inspiration, Imaginations also plays with the relationship between music and painting as artistic representations of space both real and imaginary.
