The Tempest

Central Park – Malvern 
25 February – 12 March 2023

We are heading back to Central Park, Malvern with our larger than life 90 minute adaptation of The Tempest. This brand new musical production is the brainchild of acclaimed Melbourne Director Chelsea Matheson (Telling Tales) with Musical Direction from Benjamin Colley (As You Like It) and Movement Direction from Tref Gare (The King’s Player).

Prepare to be blown away by the stellar performances, innovative staging, and a live rock band! That’s right, we’ll be taking you all the way back to the 80s, imbuing this Shakespeare classic with all the grit and spunk of punk rock.
