MELBOURNE SEASON MUST CLOSE SEPTEMBER 8

“We were thrilled to see that we have resonated with an audience of all ages. We couldn’t have asked for a better opening to the Australian tour. It was a great start to the tour, receiving a standing ovation for each performance,” said David Atkins.
Before Tap Dogs and The Boy from Oz, Hot Shoe Shuffle paved the way as the first Australian musical to succeed both at home and internationally and is one of the longest running multi-award winning musicals ever to be produced in Australia.
