About The Boomkak Panto at Belvoir

A dry, dusty little Aussie town, somewhere in the back of beyond, with all the decency, diversity – and division – that you’d expect in a rural microcosm. But Boomkak is confronting some massive challenges now that the Big Developer has set his sights on the town, and this little community finds itself in a fight for survival. How can they possibly fight back?

By putting on a panto, of course.

From the creative minds behind Calamity Jane (a smash hit at Belvoir in 2018) comes a piece of utter joy – a love letter to theatre, to community, to the resilience of our Little Aussie Towns™ – lo-fi, big-hearted, and Belvoir to the back teeth.

With new songs from Tony Award nominee Eddie Perfect, and a couple of Aussie rock classics, dance, and old-fashioned silliness, The Boomkak Panto promises to be a mad, sparkling jewel, a reward for getting through these dark and strange times.

"There’s no-one like Virginia Gay – witty, clever, big of heart, and ridiculously talented. When she said she wanted (in her own way) to revive panto, how could we resist? And the team she’s assembling knows how to make a good night of theatre. This will be fun." – Eamon Flack
