Manilla Street Productions presents the world premiere of Amazing Grace, a calisthenics musical production.
Just like Riverdance did for Irish Dancing, Amazing Grace takes the world of calisthenics to mainstream audiences with a spectacular new production showcasing the strength, grace and artistry of this unique Australian art form.
With a cast of over 30 of Australia’s elite calisthenics and musical theatre performers, this production is nothing short of spectacular. Amazing Grace features new arrangements of over 20 songs, ranging from classical to musical theatre favourites performed by a live orchestra.
Amazing Grace’s creator and director Karen Jemison has teamed up with renowned calisthenics choreographers Jeanne Sorich and Lucinda Williams, both previous Graceful Girl winners and two of Australia’s top calisthenics coaches to create the show.
This production builds on the Manilla Street Productions reputation for presenting Australia’s leading theatrical talent in new or little-performed works. Manilla Street Productions last presented Nine in Concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre to raise money for Think Pink supporting breast cancer patients.
The world premiere season of Amazing Grace will be on from Friday 9 February to Sunday 11 February 2018 at the National Theatre.
