AussieTheatre is excited to have a double pass to give away to DreamSong at Theatre Works in St Kilda on Sunday, April 13 at 5pm.
Written by Hugo Chiarella and Robert Tripolino, directed by Dean Bryant (Pirates of Penzance, Next to Normal, The Producers), with choreography by Andrew Hallsworth (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), DreamSong is an irreverent and audacious comedy that investigates questions of faith and spirituality through a wickedly satirical depiction of evangelical populist religion, politics and popular culture and how all of these interweave, set to a pulsing score of Christian pop and soaring power ballads.
The cast features Ben Prendergast (Red Stitch Actors Theatre, Predestination) as Pastor Richard Sunday; Chelsea Gibb (Chicago) as Whitney Sunday – The Pastor’s Wife; Emily Langridge (Les Miseradbles) as April Sunday – The Pastor’s Daughter; Mike McLeish (Keating! Shane Warne – The Musical) as Prime Minister Cunningham; Brent Hill (The Producers, Rock of Ages) as Jesus Christ; and Connor Crawford (Jersey Boys) as Chris T; as well as Evan Lever (Moonshadow), and Alana Tranter (Lone Wolves).
The story centres around an evangelical mega church, DreamSong, and its Pastor, Richard Sunday. The church has lost millions in the Global Financial crisis and Pastor Sunday decides to stage the second coming of Christ and market him as a Christian Pop Star, as a way through their money problems.
Competition closes Thursday 10 April at 6:30pm. Winners will be notified via email/phone.
