The 2017 schedule includes a number of high-calibre performances, showcasing the company’s immense talent. In September, Tom Waits and William S. Burroughs’ cult musical fable The Black Rider will come to life at the Malthouse Theatre. It has become one of the most iconic pieces of avant garde theatre since it premiered in 1990 and tells the story of a file clerk’s desperation to prove his worth by entering a Faustian pact. However, the Devil’s bargain is always a fool’s bargain. The Black Rider runs from 15 September to 8 October at the Merlyn Theatre, The Coopers Malthouse.
November will bring Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen to the stage in a new Australian work by composer Gordon Kerry and writer John Kinsella. This tale of dark magic, the power of friendship and the triumph of good over evil is showing exclusively for two days in November in Wodonga.
