Brave and Bold

After playing packed-out extra shows at the Melbourne Fringe, Brave and Bold is coming to an Adelaide Fringe Festival near you. (This one.)

Doug tried to become the ideal, cookie-cutter version of himself - and it sucked. His WAAPA music theatre degree left him with more questions than answers about who he really was, and threw him into a mould that he just didn’t seem to fit. But he’s done trying to fit into someone else’s definition of success. He’s ready to lean into who he really is.

Brave and Bold is a whirlwind of original songs, sketches, characters and jokes from a music theatre tragic (in recovery). With music that jumps from 2000s boy bands, to doo-wop, to samba, you’ll be swept through Doug’s fedora phase, some exciting news from Dua Lipa, and the audition process for Les Miserables.

Sometimes, being yourself is the most brave and bold thing you can do. (That’s the title of the show, so it’s very clever.)
