Superstar Productions and The Darwin Chorale have rightfully celebrated a sell-out 2023 season of their production of Evita at the Darwin Entertainment Centre. Days before the first of only two performances, social media was abuzz with punters desperately trying to secure a spot in the 1,000 seat Playhouse Theatre – with no luck. The producers kindly offered to share a selection of Reuben Gore’s evocative photography of the performances with Stage Whispers.
Stage Whispers readers outside South Australia will mainly know Barry Hill as a reviewer, occasionally also reviewed for his direction, or for his stage performances. A stalwart of Adelaide theatre, we congratulate Barry, who was honoured with the Order of Australia Medal on Australia Day, thanking him for his lengthy, passionate ‘service to the Performing Arts’. We asked Barry to share some of his theatrical highlights.

The God Committee is a Grey’s Anatomy-style medical drama that asks the audience to consider what a human life is worth, and who makes that determination. The play, written by Mark St. Germain, is the final production in Wollongong Workshop Theatre’s 2023 season.
