If you love The Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables or Moulin Rouge, this is your chance to experience musical theatre at its grandest, and yet, most intimate.

Byron Bay is a creative hub and it is about to add another string to its bow – high-end theatre.

Internationally renowned singer and actor Michael Cormick has had a diverse career throughout Australia, the United Kingdom and Europe. Michael brings this wealth of experience to his new role as Artistic Director of Byron Supper Club – inspired by Broadway. 

‘Byron Supper Club is a truly unique theatrical experience. It is completely different to anything Byron has seen before. A rare opportunity to dress up and enjoy a glamorous night out at the theatre,’ says Michael.

For three nights only, the Byron Theatre will transform into Byron Supper Club, with cabaret-style tables replacing traditional theatre seating. The night will feature five pop-up shows over three hours in an elegant supper club setting. Expect the unexpected in this submersive, intimate theatre experience.

‘I love the live element of performing in a theatre. It’s an immediate exchange between the performer and the audience,’ says Michael. ‘I have been a performer all my life, and have experienced this in many forms in lead roles across London, New York, Paris, Italy and at home here in Australia, but to be in such an intimate setting makes this truly special.’

In his first time behind-the-scenes in production, West End star Michael draws on his extensive theatre experience as he presents some of Australia’s most iconic musical theatre stars along with Byron’s best local talent.

Michael leads a world-class cast, with musical theatre icons Rachael Beck (Cats, Beauty and the Beast, Les Misérables) and Blake Bowden (The Book of Mormon, Fiddler on the Roof) joined by dancers Graeme Isaako (Aladdin, The Lion King) and Natasha Marconi (The Great Gatsby, Carmen, Grease) with soul powerhouse Lisa Hunt and jazz ensemble the Sharny Russell Trio.

‘The audience can expect a night of incredible entertainment. Music all night and theatrical extravaganzas that pop-up throughout the evening. Also, the luxury of table service and, of course, our Taste of Byron supper platters, full of delicious local produce,’ says Michael.

Enjoy a spectacular theatre show with family or friends around the central circular stage, or an intimate night out at a table for two with wonderful views from the Balcony.

The show will premiere on Thursday 7 January, with two more shows on Friday 8 and Saturday 9. For more information visit the Byron Theatre Website: byroncentre.com.au.
