by Stephen Carleton and Paul Hodge
Join us for this musical romp through the life of Joh Bjelke-Petersen, the Queensland icon who set state politics alight. With script by award-winning playwright Stephen Carleton and original score by off Broadway composer Paul Hodge, you’ll swing along to songs like ‘Pumpkin Scone Diplomacy’. Bursting at the seams with comedy, the show promises to be an absolute hit! “Struth! Don’t you worry about that!”
