The Boomkak Panto
November 20 - December 23| $33 – $68
Belvoir is proud to announce the reopening of Belvoir St Theatre with the world premiere of The Boomkak Panto, a ridiculously flamboyant and hilarious pantomime by award-winning actor Virginia Gay, from 20th November to 23rd December.
From the creative minds behind Belvoir’s 2018 smash hit Calamity Jane comes a piece of utter joy to reopen the theatre after 2021’s lockdown– 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.
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!
