Melbourne Model: The Musical tells the story of a smarmy Young Liberal, Wallace Higgins-Beaumont, and his struggle of allegiance between an all singing, all dancing bunch of leftist hippies (also known as the Student Union) and the charismatic rock star Vice Chancellor Glyn Davis.
A satirical and farcical allegory of the controversial restructure currently taking place at the University of Melbourne, Melbourne Model: The Musical was a sell-out campus hit in 2008 and also won Union House Theatre's Production of the Year.
While Melbourne Model: The Musical may leave you with a lot of questions about the commercialisation of Australia's top university and what it means for the future of higher education in this country, it will leave you with no doubt the culture of satire that spawned such comedy greats as Barry Humphries and the D Generation is still alive and well on the University of Melbourne campus.
