The Wharf Revue 2019

By

Back with a bang

The all-singing, all-dancing, side-splittingly funny solution to all the world’s problems returns for another year of satirical genius.

The West is crumbling, democracy is besieged and the world is run by morons with funny hair. You have to laugh. And that’s exactly what The Wharf Revue delivers. The indefatigable team is back once more to dig through the year’s political dirt and unearth comedy gold.

From the movers to the shakers, from the winners to the losers, the stage will be filled with uncanny impressions of the year’s most memorable characters and the moments they’d prefer to forget.

Stalwart performer Drew Forsythe returns with special triple-threat guests including the hilarious Simon Burke. The choreography is tight, the wigs are loose, the punchlines are loaded. Everything is ready for a big night of laughter and mayhem.

Virtuoso #4: Severiano Paoli

By

In his Australian debut performance, Italian Double Bass virtuoso Severiano Paoli will perform as soloist with Colour City Chamber Orchestra.

Strassman – The Chocolate Diet

By

From London to New York, Strassman’s comic genius has shocked and surprised. Now it’s your turn to experience Strassman’s uproarious comedy with those infamous favourites, the loveable Ted E. Bare and the evil Chuck Wood.

Strassman’s newest show is The Chocolate Diet.

Ted E. Bare’s health quest is hilariously painful and one we can relate to. Meanwhile Chuck is going through an identity crisis,

Strassman is one of Australia’s favorite comedian’s, a master of his art.

Once again, he delivers the ultimate night out.

A truly remarkable performance appears to defy reality – The Adelaide Advertiser

Hilarious – The Scotsman (UK)

David Strassman. He’s the dark-edged, avant-garde artist who lifted ventriloquism into the 21st century, acquiring a multitude of fans and critical acclaim along the way.

Led by the evil Chuck Wood and delightfully cute Ted E Bare, Strassman’s “renegade band of puppets” (as The Scotsman called them) create a multi-layered stage performance.

Audiences forget that its actually a one-man show!

Jesus Christ Superstar

By

With thirty pieces of silver and a kiss on the cheek, the ultimate act of betrayal is committed.

In 1971, Jesus Christ Superstar burst onto the worldwide stage and changed the face of musical theatre forever.

Through the eyes of the betrayer, Judas Iscariot, Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of the last days of the man he once loved and admired.

Through Judas’ eyes, the very human soul beneath the divine icon is bared – troubled, doubting, loving and scared.

A blazing score from Andrew Lloyd Webber of The Phantom of the Opera, Evita and Cats fame combines with

Tim Rice’s inventive and evocative lyrics to make a musical still as devastatingly powerful as the first time it hit the stage.

Nominated for eight Tony Awards and seven Olivier Awards over its almost 50 year history, the greatest rock opera ever created shines a light on the power of the human spirit.

What would it take for you to betray the Son of God? And how would you feel if you did?

Never before has a simple kiss on the cheek meant so much.
