Venue Details

Sydney Rd, Brunswick VIC 3056, Australia

We’re excited to reprise our cabaret-comedy show “Game of Throats” as part of the Brunswick Music Festival. The last shows sold out, so book early to avoid disappointment!

Welcome to a whole new genre – choral comedy cabaret. Two choirs go head to head lured by promises of fame and glory. The stakes are high. Who is going to make it through?

Seasoned performers Bronwyn Calcutt and Terry Cole have combined their theatrical wits with the glorious tones of two of Melbourne’s most exciting choirs – Shaking the Tree and Expressive Women – to produce an event with all the dazzle of The Voice, the passion of a Grand Final, the strategy of International Chess, and the ruthlessness and drama of Game of Thrones.

Appealing to their worst traits, a dodgy celebrity entrepreneur – Chester Gold (Terry Cole) – lures two gentle community choirs head to head into fierce vocal competition – Game of Throats – with promises of fame and glory for the winner.
A mixture of vocal magic and theatrical mayhem ensues as the power moves unpredictably between the parties.
Will Chester Gold seduce them to the dark side, or will peace and harmony prevail?

Featuring music from Joni Mitchell, Led Zeppelin, Leonard Cohen, the Beatles, Tim Minchin, Lady Gaga, The Cure, and originals by Bronwyn Calcutt, this unique show premiered in 2015 to a sell-out audience and rave response.
Don’t miss this one-off encore performance for the Brunswick Music Festival 2016. Directed by Bronwyn Calcutt.
