REBEL @ The MC Showroom
Set in 1969, Rebel recalls his journey from small town Texan farm boy to one of California’s hottest acts during the peak of the rock and roll era. A story of self-discovery, self-acceptance and family – whatever that happens to be.
Featuring a Book and Greenroom Award-nominated Original Songs by Drew Downing, this new production is directed by Clary Riven (Tinder Tales, Memphis) with musical direction by Melbourne-theatre favourite Tyson Legg. Set & Costume Design is by Betty Auhl (UgLeigh, Polygraph). The show is lead by Frank Kerr in the titular role, supported by onstage band.

After two development seasons in 2014 (Midsumma, Melbourne Cabaret Festival), the production is now presented in its entirety for the first time.
REBEL is a love letter to country music and storytelling; paying tribute to LGBTIQ+ history. Each performance of REBEL will support a Melbourne not-for-profit organisation.
REBEL – A New Musical plays The MC Showroom for a limited season October 16 – 20.
