THE BUTLER DID IT
By Walter and Peter Marks
Directed by Rianna Hartney Smith
SYNOPSIS: The scene is the set where Anthony J Lefcourt writer and director, is rehearsing his new play, a classic whodunit with which he hopes to regain the success that has eluded him in recent seasons. Desperately eager to stimulate his cast to their best efforts, he has deliberately withheld the final scene of the play from them, but his patience is worn thin by the petty jealousies and romantic rivalries that detract from their concentration. In an effort to spur them on he stages the murder of the actresses, after which the plot begins to twist and turn with such dazzling ingenuity and hilarity.

SYNOPSIS: Jersey Boys is the inspiring rags-to-riches tale of The Four Seasons. When Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi met, they were just three New Jersey teens singing together under street lamps, scraping for gigs and money in their working-class neighbourhood. After Joe Pesci introduces Bob Gaudio the trio became the famous quartet and together they rose to international stardom, and celebrated the highs and endured the lows that come hand-in-hand with fame. Directed by Cilla Scott and Brad Kendrick, Jersey Boys is a smash hit that showcases The Four Seasons most iconic hits including “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man”.

VENUS IN FUR
A comedy / drama
By David Ives
Directed by Nathan Schulz
By arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty Ltd on behalf of Dramatist's Play Service, Inc New
SYNOPSIS: Thomas Novachek, a director/playwright, has suffered a long day of auditions for his adaptation of the German sadomasochistic novel Venus in Furs, until Vanda stumbles into his audition room. With Thomas reluctantly talked into playing the masochistic male lead, the audition, and role-play, slowly becomes intense, erotic, and less like acting.
The Drama Merchant put an immersive twist to the material the audience, witnesses a funny, intimate, erotic and electrifying game of cat & mouse as themes of submission, domination, and power is explored in David Ives’ mesmerizing play where reality and pretend become blurred lines!
