The show’s Tony Award-win­ning cre­ative team has cre­ated the un­like­li­est of hit mu­si­cals about the un­like­li­est of he­roes: a quirky yet charm­ing cast of out­siders for whom a spell­ing bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

Then he took the next six days off, be­cause once you’ve nailed it, treat your­self to a liedown. The world has had re­li­gion ever since God was in nap­pies, and what have we got to show for it: wars, ter­ror­ist at­tacks, and Chris­tian rock. It’s time re­li­gion took a hard look at it­self, so Chop­per is start­ing his own one, in his own im­age, and giv­ing hell to the almighty. There’s a new ‘mo-ssiah’ for a new age and he’s holier than Os­car Pis­to­rius’ bath­room door. Thou shalt har­den up and be­come a Cho­pos­tle! So gather round, and be healed by Bogan Je­sus. On Satur­day, starts 7.30pm. Tick­ets $34 — $38 from hota.com.au
