Alan Bennett’s The History Boys is a cheeky look into the English education system in the 80s. Eight history students are pursuing an undergraduate place at Oxbridge.
Their headmaster is determined to see them break records and enlists a new teacher to coach the boys into intellectual shape. Seduced though they are by his promises, the boys are concerned that there is more to the pursuit of learning than exams and grades.
Warning: Suitable for mature audiences. Some strong language and sexual themes.
The Lion King Jr. tells the story of the epic adventures of a curious cub named Simba as he struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destiny as king. Along the way, the young lion encounters a colourful cast of characters including spunky lioness Nala, charismatic meerkat Timon, and loveable warthog Pumbaa.
To claim his rightful place on the throne and save his beloved Pridelands Simba must find his inner strength and confront his wicked Uncle Scar. . The Lion King JR. features classic songs from the 1994 film such as “Hakuna Matata” and the Academy Award®-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” as well as additional songs penned for the Broadway production.
“The Lion King Jr reaches to our deepest emotions, touching on themes of love, loss, guilt and responsibility. The overarching message of the Circle of Life and our place in it is both humbling and empowering. Lebo M’s soaring African music, Elton John’s crowd pleasers and the exotic beauty of the African landscape all combine to make this show, to me, the most joyful and moving of the Disney productions.”
Merinda Gray Director Lion King Jr

Based on the iconic Oscar-winning 1994 Australian film, PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT is the hilarious adventure of three loud, proud and very different friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for the outback to put on the show of a lifetime when political correctness was just a thought bubble. Along the way, they strut, dance, sing, laugh, cry, and learn more about themselves – while singing up a storm to a non-stop parade of dance-floor classics including It’s Raining Men, Hot Stuff, I Will Survive, I Love the Nightlife, Go West, Colour My World, Boogie Wonderland, Shake Your Groove Thing and many more!
