How about a “hooray” for Australian musicals?
Hip, hip, HOORAY!

Right. Now we’ve celebrated, we want to add yet another musical to the list. Another exciting project for music theatre fans to rally behind and support. Anthony Costanzo and Peter Fitzpatrick’s brand new work CrossXroads.

The world premiere of this new Australian musical theatre piece is set to take place this year and the full cast have been confirmed.

Chapel off Chapel, April 15-30.

Be there. Seriously, you don’t want to miss the chance to witness the birth of a brand new Australian musical.

Told over a period of ten years, CrossXroads explores sliding-door moments and provides an answer to those all too common ‘what if’ moments.

The show follows the relationship of Amy and Rick from their graduation at the start of a new millennium to a day in Paris that might be the best or the worst day of their lives.

Alinta Chidzey (West Side Story, Chess) will star as Amy, the girl who has to learn to follow her heart and Stephen Mahy (Jersey Boys, Rocky Horror Show) will play the role of Amy’s occasional and potential partner, Rick.

Before you read any further, check out this exclusive track from the show, featuring the glorious voice of Alinta Chidzey.

Music theatre star Fem Belling, most recently seen on The Voice Australia, will appear as the wildly unpredictable Hannah and alongside Fem will be Joe Kosky (Jersey Boys, NED) as the hilarious Barrel.

The show’s exceptional ensemble cast includes Bianca Baykara (In The Heights, The King & I), Maddie Featherby, (The Mapmaker’s Opera, Godspell, La Traviata) Ryan Gonzalez (Violet, Strictly Ballroom, King Kong) and Ed Grey (Wicked, Spring Awakening, Legally Blonde).

Directed by Tyran Parke, musically directed by David Wiskin and choreographed by Michael Ralph, the production will also feature lighting and set design by Rob Sowinski and Bryn Cullen.
