Experience the fun and excitement of Eurovision live in Geelong next month when Song Contest – The Almost Eurovision Experience comes to GPAC for eight special shows.
The Almost Eurovision is a glitzy comedic and loving tribute to the Eurovision Song Contest, the annual international singing contest where more than 40 countries participate in a war of music and usually ends up making headlines around the world. Based on the event that’s currently in its 63rd year, The Almost Eurovision Experience is as close as you can get, with 11 countries competing, anxious contestants and all the quirkiness that delights and makes you cheer and cringe.
The competition is real, and voting is authentic, happening live via smartphone to decide the winning Country. It’s everything you’d expect in a Eurovision Final and MORE! Yes… that means everything – from powerhouse performances, spectacular costumes, lighting and of course, non-stop laughs from a fab line up of local talent.
Co-written by comedian Glynn Nicholas and brought to the region by The Geelong Lyric Theatre Society, this hilarious event actually coincides with the dates of the ‘real’ 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal this May. Whether you’re a fan or not, you can enjoy the perks and joys of Europe’s strangest and biggest event – minus the plane ticket.
What’s not to love about that?
If you do enjoy Eurovision though, you will absolutely LOVE this.
When & Where: Eurovision is coming to GPAC from Thursday 10 with eight shows running through to Saturday 19 May. Tickets are on sale now via GPAC.
