Moonboy is a collective of young, Sydney-based performers and writers, primarily from the Sydney University performing arts sphere. Following on from the success of their original show "Musical of Thrones" at the Sydney Fringe Festival, Moonboy is taking the musical parody interstate. Moonboy has also worked to support charities that foster learning in the arts, giving the profits from its Sydney performances to The Song Room, which provides a music program for underprivileged Australian children.
Musical of Thrones: A Comedy of Ice and Fire
Musical of Thrones tells the story of a family torn apart by war, betrayal, and the boneheaded political savvy of its well-meaning patriarch, Ned. We meet the Starks at Winterfell, a quaint, but shitty little village that they happily call home. But everything goes out the window when King Robert comes to town, including the youngest Stark, Bran, who spends half the show in a coma.
And so our story begins! The Starks are splattered across Westeros as Ned stumbles his way through the political minefield of King’s Landing, his bastard son Jon goes to The Wall, while Catelyn remains with the comatose Bran at Winterfell.
Childhood trauma? Broken families? Grieving mothers-turned-grieving-widows?
Written by Daniel Cullen, Musical of Thrones is a laugh-out-loud parody of HBO’s hit series, Game of Thrones, cranking silliness and pastiche to the max.
