Becoming Bill

Presented by Old Fashioned Productions

Becoming Bill is a new award-winning musical about a finding your feet and writing your best life…

Featuring leading musical theatre star Rachael Beck and direction by Neil Gooding this hilarious and heartwarming new Australian work will receive its world premiere in Brisbane, after winning several awards around the world.

When Bill, an out of work actor, is asked to write a musical, he foolishly bases it on himself and those around him, upsetting the delicate balance in the family home, unburdening truths they had each hidden.

This project has been supported by The Bridge, an initiative of Brisbane Powerhouse and Brisbane City Council.

Becoming Bill is supported by The Park Hotel Brisbane and Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments.

It is always very satisfying to know that there is talent out there writing new material and pushing the boundaries in musical theatre.

Musical Theatre Review UK

Sometimes, the experience of musical theatre can be so special as to leave you in want of a thesaurus to do its distinction justice…
