Melissa Western

NTC Touring Theatre

Ella, Marilyn, Marlene & Me

Whisky Galore

A wild, fairytale performance spanning the worlds of jazz, cabaret and theatre.

Scotch on the rocks, love in the air, mayhem masked by mischief all around.

Australian singer-actor Melissa Western whirls through the glamorous and often tragic lives of three twentieth century icons, Ella Fitzgerald, Marilyn Monroe and Marlene Dietrich in this unique and hugely entertaining show. Supported by Tnee, with his unique brand of musical comedy, Western plays out the dreams, hopes and disappointments these three women experienced in their climb to fame.

NTC weave their own brand of theatrical magic in a new adaptation of Compton Mackenzie’s famous comic novel of life on a Hebridian Island. The SS Cabinet Minister heads for the rocks with its cargo of the finest scotch just in time to wash away the obstacles in True Love’s path…

Two Gentlemen of Verona

Sorcerer’s Apprentice

From Verona to Milan, via Harare and Bulawayo, Valentine and Proteus, vie for the love of the same woman. When Valentine is banished, their friendship is threatened and only through disguise, deception and intrigue are they reconciled.

Take one castle, one broom and one book of sorcery. Add a boy with the tingle of magic in his fingertips and a spell that spirals out of control ….
