Twisted Broadway, the annual gender-bending music theatre blockbuster returns in 2013 to a new venue, new hosts and stellar production team.
Having sold out 3 years running since it's inauguration in 2010, this charity event, which donates all of its proceeds to Oz Showbiz Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, has become the years most highly anticipated event, with audience numbers continuing to break records, and the cast list becoming more elite each year.
The concept is simple, yet fun and addictive. The evening consists of professional music theatre artists performing contemporary and classic musical numbers originally written for the opposite gender, in a night of twisted, show stopping entertainment.
This year, the team welcomes the brilliant Chris Parker as director and Vicky Jacobs as Musical Director on board, ensuring the evening will be a visual and audible feast of brilliance.
Following the success of 2012's hosts, Melissa Bergland, Rhonda Burchmore and Rob Mills, Twisted Broadway 2013 will be led by industry superstars Trevor Ashley and Erika Heynatz. This is one duo that should not be missed! Who knows what music theatre chaos will ensue with these two at the helm.
Co – Producer Kate Macdonald said "Twisted Broadway really is a reflection of what a fantastic theatre community Australia has. We are always so humbled by the support that is offered by industry professionals that extend from performers and musicians, right through to designers, technical, and front of house staff. It is the power of community that allows Twisted Broadway to donate tens of thousands of dollars to Oz Showbiz Cares / Equity Fights AIDS each and every year. This year see's us supported by brand new venue at Arts Centre Melbourne and a cast list that any production here or abroad would be envious of. 2013 is sure to be our biggest and best season yet."
As a regular Twisted Broadway attendee and 2013 ticket holder, I strongly urge everyone to treat themselves and experience this unique and unmissable theatre event.
