Q&As available on request

Animal Farm

Adapted by James Jackson & Elizabeth Brennan

SECONDARY – VCE PLAYLIST | Adapted by The Bloomshed, George Orwell’s fierce critique of power is funnelled through a contemporary context that sees political oppression, extremism, misinformation and food production erupt into an all-out assault on our contemporary political landscape. ANIMAL FARM is a high-octane mess of punk-protest, political allegory and epic theatre with a rhythm beaten out on abandoned grain silos.

Voldemort and the Teenage Hogwarts

Musical Parody

SECONDARY | Before Voldemort was He Who Must Not Be Named, he was just Tom Riddle, another moody teen that couldn’t talk to girls. VOLDEMORT is a Harry Potter musical parody that is sure to leave you spellbound!

Sold Out

Mara KORPER

By Jayde Kirchert

SECONDARY | An exciting, feminist sci-fi theatrical experience, Mara KORPER is set in a futuristic world where gender is obsolete and the flesh must remain whole, exploring themes of extremism, gender and body image in a dystopian future, picking up where Orwell and Huxley left off.

Singing Swallows

By Romi Kupfer

9+ | Holocaust stories, how do we pass them on through generations?  A beautiful and symbolic representation of a storytelling experience that cannot be replicated, SINGING SWALLOWS is an early start to understanding the Holocaust, connecting to young people’s lives through voice recording and visual storytelling.

When The Rain Stops Falling

By Andrew Bovell

SECONDARY | Told through the interconnected stories of two families over four generations; between a prediction in London 1959 and its outcome in Australia eighty years later. WHEN THE RAIN STOPS FALLING unfolds like a puzzle to be solved.
