Manchild...The Lost Aussie Rock Musical

Music • Musical Theatre
'It's about the randomness of life ... of how you're here one minute and gone the next, and how you'd better get relationships established because there's not much else that you can rely on,' recalls composer Chris Neal. Manchild had great success on the road and even hit the Top 40 charts. So what happened to this Aussie Rock Musical?

Sadly there are no scripts or scores left from this production but, with the blessing of Chris Neal (creator of Manchild and more recently composer of music for Johnson & Friends and Farscape), we have transcribed a number of the tracks to perform live. In amongst the songs we will tell the story of this Aussie Rock Musical and how it was lost.

Please note: this performance was previously listed as a 9pm start. It has been moved to 9:30pm
