The Hayes Theatre Co have announced their 2019 season:

We are thrilled to unveil to you our 2019 Season featuring knights in shining armour, villains, murderers, conmen, sisters, sailors and a couple of legends. Once again we have assembled a program featuring some of the best-known shows alongside the newest musicals, and talents from the world of cabaret.

We are very excited to announce that our bathroom facilities will be undergoing a major renovation in early 2019 thanks to the City of Sydney. This does mean that we won’t be presenting a show during January and February, but we will be champing at the bit to get started with our first production in March 2019.

We hope you will join us for another year of the best music theatre and cabaret available. All 2019 productions are now on sale, so don’t delay and book now – you wouldn’t want to miss out! See you at the theatre soon.

Set in Louisiana at the beginning of the civil rights movement, this musical by Tony Kushner (Angels in America) and Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home, Violet) examines what it means to just want to survive in a world turned upside down by change.


HMS_WebsiteWe finish the year with an exciting new production of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic, H.M.S. PINAFORE from maverick director Kate Gaul making her Hayes Theatre Co debut. Featuring a gender-bending cast this wildly imaginative production will be unlike any version of G&S you’ve seen before.



KAG-Sitting-2000-x-1000Fresh from her performance in Meet Me In St. Louis, Kerrie Anne Greenland returns to Hayes Theatre Co with her new cabaret, PICTURES: SONGS FROM MOVIE MUSICALS. Including songs from Les Misérables, The Greatest Showman, The Jazz Singer and a few Disney hits.
Chiara and Daniel Asseta CREDIT Joe DonovanSiblingship follows the childhood journey of Daniel Assetta (The Book of Mormon, Wicked, Cats) and Chiara Assetta (Universal Monsters Live, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter), two real-life, all-singing, all-dancing, Italian-Australian siblings. Through classic show tunes and a splash of pop music, this dynamic duo explores the ‘rules’ that make the world’s most unique relationship work. Siblingship is a cabaret for everyone who ever fought with, told secrets to, stood up for, laughed and cried with, absolutely couldn’t stand – but always loved and could never live without – their siblings.
You’ve heard him many times in shows including She Loves Me, Assassins, Side Show and Rent, but now Steven Kreamer finally steps out from the band room to take centre stage in his cabaret I SING SONGS. Featuring original songs, songs about love, songs not about love and songs about songs, Steven shows himself to be not just a consummate musician but a charismatic and talented performer.

Expect a night of songs, stories and memories from an Australian theatrical legend in the venue named just for her.
