Produced by Global Creatures and Bazmark, STRICTLY BALLROOM THE MUSICAL opened to a standing ovation from the 2,000 plus audience on Saturday 12 April 2014 at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre.

Here’s a taste of what some of the critics have said:-

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH – Strictly Ballroom The Musical captures the heart. Baz

Luhrmann’s new stage version of the 1992 film Strictly Ballroom packs way more sensory punch than the film ever could. So Strictly Ballroom is a big, bright, gloriously colourful and joyous affair, two sparklingly fresh stars Thomas Lacey as Scott and Phoebe Panaretos at the centre of it all and an exceptional ensemble grooving around them, all brilliantly carried along by a handful of fired up veterans. It looks and sounds sensational.

Watch for the small details, they’re gorgeous. It’s a wonderfully antipodean outing. Catch a great Aussie story right here where it began some 30 years ago.

THE SUN HERALD – And, golly, did Baz Luhrmann’s sentimental masterpiece live up to its red-curtained hype, with the audience leaving with a smile on their faces and a song in their hearts.

THE AUSTRALIAN – Uncued, except by their familiarity with the film, 2000 people put their hands together. Thunderously. Audience and show had became one.

AAP (Australian Associated Press) – A spectacular, eye-popping musical, brought to life in all its sequined glory.

THE GUARDIAN – The choreography is great fun throughout, with the cast performing dances of every category – both strictly and non-strictly ballroom.

AUSSIETHEATRE.COM – Spangles and glitter and kitsch… and a sense of welcome

humor. It is romantic, gorgeous, and beautifully, breathtakingly simple . . . lovely, tremulous Panaretos who really shines in this role.
