The Mayor of Geelong Bruce Harwood launched the 2019 POTATO SHED Season on Wednesday December 5th.
The Season will feature Melbourne Theatre Company’s ‘The Violent Outburst that Drew Me to You’; Melbourne City Ballet’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’; and HiT! Production’s ‘Waistwatchers – The Musical’.
Rising musical theatre star Lorinda Merrypor will make her debut at the Potato Shed next July in Tony Brigg’s award winning play ‘The Sapphires’, which will be at the Shed for two big nights.
Cabaret is once again a strong feature of the programme, with the return of the 2018 sold out show Paris Underground. Anya Anastasia will present Executioner, and after touring the globe, Valerie Hex (aka James Welsby) dazzled the audience with her brand of breathtaking drag, dance, circus and burlesque, next May 2019 with YUMMY DELUX.
A bit of southern USA style was added with the announcement of Sun Rising: The Songs that Made Memphis, written by Melbourne musicians Dave Cosma and Damon Smith. Cosma and Smith gave a stripped back performance of their show, celebrating Sun Studios, the acknowledged birthplace of Rock n’ Roll.
