It’s that time of year again. The rumblings on message boards and forums have already begun about Australia’s 2015 music theatre season, with many already having their say about what we are to expect in the next wave of major musicals.
Australia’s most prolific theatre producer John Frost told AussieTheatre that the theatre-going public need only hold out until next month for an official 2015 announcement from the GFO office.
Frost is currently producing Grease (Perth), Rocky Horror, The King and I, Wicked (Melbourne) and will co-produce Tony Award winning musical Once with the Melbourne Theatre Company in Melbourne after The King and I transfers out of the Princess Theatre.
In recent years, Frost has presented some of the biggest musical theatre blockbusters to hit Australian shores, generating hundreds of jobs across many sectors of the arts. The 2014 recipient of the prestigious J.C Williamson Award, has also taken a great interest in the development of new musicals, having produced several (Dr Zhivago and An Officer and a Gentleman) and announcing intent to develop others (Dream Lover – the Bobby Darin story and Red Dog based on the Australian film of the same name).
