Recipe For Disaster


Presented by S2S

Recipe for Disaster is your chance to experience eight extremely different shows; each written, created and performed by talented young people of Brisbane.

These are the topics they wish to discuss! These are the changes they want to see!

In the eight weeks leading up to this event, each show will be given a weekly rule voted by YOU the public. Their challenge is to use this rule to create new works. Will they make it out alive or is this just one big recipe for disaster. Have your say and vote on Facebook at School2Stage, and then experience the resulting performances live at Brisbane Powerhouse.

School to Stage features more than 100 performers between the ages of 15-25 all ready to compete for glory. Be there!
