“Roll up! Roll up! Welcome to the greatest show on earth! With astounding acts from far and wide, this is where dreams and reality collide.” – Ringmaster
Join us for the premiere performance of Australia’s newest musical comedy. An inaccurate and irreverent retelling of the classic The Elephant Man, this live musical takes the audience through a dark comedic world of freakshows, charlatans, redemption, romance and tusks.
With a live band, original score and an exciting cast of incredible performers, The Marvellous Elephant Man will be a night to remember!
The writers Marc Lucchesi (frontman and songwriter of Melbourne group Vaudeville Smash) adds a contemporary flair and 'live gig' feel, whilst Sarah and Jay Nandagopan (New York's Don't Tell Mama's Cabaret & The Juilliard Wind Ensemble) bring the flavour of Broadway and New York to the production.
Some audience feedback from the live reading:
“Show was amazing! Cast is oozing with talent…Made me remember what I love about musicals.”
“Absolutely loved the show. Very engaging plot line, you were genuinely invested in the characters and the outcome."
"Songs were brilliant – super catchy and memorable.”
