Presented by Hayes Theatre Co & Bang Bang Rodeo

Musical Bang Bang is the best live musical you’ve never seen. Why?

Because it doesn’t exist yet. (It’s IMPROV, silly.)

From a cult event at the Old Fitz to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, this must-be-seen-to-be-believed onslaught now takes up a quarterly residence at the Hayes. Actor-comedians Jane Watt (Jazz or a Bucket of Blood, Godspell, Spamalot) and Rob Johnson (Calamity Jane, The Boomkak Panto, Rosehaven) lead an ensemble of Sydney’s best improvisers, as well as some special – possibly terrified – guests from the top ranks of Australian musical theatre.

With an ever-changing lineup, this foolhardy troupe will invent an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza while “yes and”-ing each other into oblivion – all on the set of whichever production is showing at the Hayes at the time. The first half will feature an array of short-form improv madness, before the cast unleashes an entirely improvised, one-night-only musical in the second half. Featuring a very game musical director, plus a sound and lighting technician who will improvise along with the cast, Musical Bang Bang is the best night of unscripted musical theatre you will (probably) ever see.

Previous shows have featured theatre and comedy luminaries such as Virginia Gay, Darren Gilshenan, Brent Hill, Hannah Reilly, Bridie Connell, Aaron Tsindos, Aileen Huynh and Gabbi Bolt.

Starring Thomas Campbell, Tom Candy, Victoria Falconer, Orya Golgowsky, Jacinta Gregory, Rob Johnson, Jarrad Payne and Jane Watt.
