Disgraced: Sydney Theatre Company

Yup, 20th show this year and it was wonderful!! The script was funny, the cast was great and one of my favourites, *Rose Byrne* certainly didn’t disappoint.

I’m very grateful I could have the theatre as one of my mental wellness strategies… and still 2 more shows to go. How will I top this next year? #ayearoftheatre, maybe? #mentalwellness #laughteristhebestmesicine (at Roslyn Packer Theatre Walsh Bay)

Urinetown #16

Musical #16 was #Urinetown by #brisbaneacademyofmusicaltheatre. I was so keen for a fun night of satire, corny ballads, political digs, beautiful harmonies, synchronised lady dancing, a high-energy cast and laughter with @emily_the_elephant_yo! So grateful to #bamt for showing off their talent to make for the distraction, an enjoyable evening and a new soundtrack for my Musicals Playlist! #ayearofmusicals #urinetownthemusical #musicaltheatre #aussietheatre #brisbanemusicaltheatre #theatrenerd #findhope #freetopee (at Harvest Rain Theatre Company)

Aladdin #14

Musical #14 is #Aladdin in the Royal Box at Capitol Theratre! What a magical and enchanting show! It certainly lived up to the hype with the unbelievable sights and indescribable feelings! My first wish to see it a second time was answered by Genie Disney and I‘m looking forward to it’s visit to Brissy next year! Did the crazy talent, flying carpet, comedic characters, soaring heroes, famous love ballads, endless diamond skies, sets, lighting, dancing, singing, non-stop laughter, bromance, romance and sequence that took me to the the most glitzy and glamorous fictional city in the world make up for the shallow plot – yes, yes it did! Thank you @aladdininaus for a fantastic Arabian, laughter filled night! For 2 hours I was taken to a whole new world, a million miles away and the smiles didn’t stop for a second!

Spring Awakening #13

Musical #13 was Spring Awakening at UNSW! Ias stoked to see a guy from school who I haven’t seen in, like, 7 years doing his thing on stage. I don’t know how I went through all my years as an emo high schooler and young adult without this soundtrack in my life. All of the teen angst. The winning moment was Morris and Ilse’ “Don’t Do Sadness/Blue Wind” & had me teary. Overall I really, really enjoyed this creative and minimalist production, again, with a stellar cast. Oh, how I love Aussie Theatre!

Wicked #12

Musical #12 is Wicked and boy was I impressed!! The quality felt so close to the touring production 2 years ago. The leads were exceptional (AH! THOSE VOICES!!), the orchestra was on point & the set and costumes were amazing! There was no disappointed, only superseded expectations. A shout out to the dude in front of me who was also mouthing every single word with passion, sparking applause, in awe, before the songs even ended.

We Will Rock You $10

Musical #10 #WeWillRockYou. I had a blast rocking along to #queenclassics, laughing at cleverly crafted pop-culture satire while admiring the stand-out, committed, versatile and talented ensemble 💫.

What it lacked visually in regards to levels and staging dynamics was made up with energy, killer voices and strong, eccentric characters. @jazflowers had me covered in goosebumps and smiles (ahhhhh, she makes me so happy!) – blowing me away alongside @theerinclare22 (yet again – thank you #heathersoz), @simonmrussell & @thernreynolds. Thank you to the cast and crew of @rockyouau for a fun, hilarious and entertaining show!
