Schapelle Schapelle – The Musical


After a sell-out season at the 2021 Sydney Comedy Festival, the smash-hit Schapelle Schapelle – The Musical makes it’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut!

This fast-paced musical comedy is a satirical exploration of Australia’s weakness for media sensationalism, as told through the life of Schapelle Corby upon her arrest for drug smuggling in Bali in 2005.

Fictionalised, but featuring pivotal actual events and verbatim elements, Schapelle Schapelle captures a story of absurdity, opportunism, loneliness and redemption.

“Expect to be thoroughly entertained and maybe even a little educated” ★★★★ – Time Out

“Stunning high-energy and immensely entertaining, musical comedy parody of The Schapelle Corby Story. Highly recommended” – Sydney Arts Guide

“This show is a smash hit from beginning to end” – City Hub

“An absolutely brilliant piece of high-energy, high intelligence musical theatre” – Stage Whispers

“An undeniably funny and energetic show” – Australian Stage
