• WELCOME TO SEASON 2017 •
This is The Production Company’s 19th year, and what a wonderful season we have for you.
Hello, Dolly! and Brigadoon are two of the greatest Broadway musicals and Hollywood musical movies of all time. From the legendary Jerry Herman, and Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe respectively, they showcase the music and story telling that makes musicals so great. Jesus Christ Superstar is nothing short of a global phenomenon. Presented in association with The Really Useful Group, it’s a rock opera in the tradition of our smash hits HAIR and CHESS.
As Dolly Levi returns to Broadway this year, we are thrilled to announce Australia’s first lady of theatre, Marina Prior, in the role. And in the Australian tradition set by legends including Googie Withers and John McCallum, Marina’s husband Grant Piro stars opposite her. Jesus Christ Superstar brings together an exciting young cast of thrilling singers you won’t want to miss. And we finish the Season with the charming Rohan Browne as the tourist who stumbles across a hidden paradise, Brigadoon, and finds love with the feisty Fiona – Genevieve Kingsford in her TPC debut.
