Beenleigh Theatre Group (Queensland) is staging Fame the Musical from November 15 to 30, 2013.
Fame the Musical follows the students at New York's School of the Performing Arts through their tough, four-year course. The audience will see the students coming to terms with life and relationships: we will see those who persevere, who are resilient - and those who are not. Above all, we will see them understanding the need to strive for excellence to be the best actor, singer, dancer or musician that they can be.

WITH an abundance of changing identities, twists and surprises, Melville Theatre’s November 2013 production has been described as a “Russian doll of a play”.
Written by Roger Leach and Colin Wakefield and directed by Joan Scafe, Audience with Murder moves from a seemingly innocuous domestic play reading, through a murder- mystery in the classic style, to a final terrifying and violent climax.
It was first produced at the 2004 Edinburgh Festival, then subsequently at London’s Jermyn Street Theatre in 2006.

The Top of The Torrens Theatre Group (SA) is clearly ready to take risks in producing Mark Waldrop’s fractured fairytale, Luck The Musical.
The November 2013 production, thought by Director David Evans to be the first time the musical has been staged in Australia, poses a massive logistics task. Based on a story by Isaac Bashevis Singer, the musical was originally written for a ‘Broadway- style’ theatre, one with all the appropriate equipment that can be found in a major live theatre venue.
