Back by popular demand! SoPopera! are thrilled to announce the return season of the much-loved production of Avenue Q this October!
Avenue Q tells the story of a group of 20-somethings all sharing the same dilapidated back street apartment strip in New York City. Though the characters and plot of this musical bears a resemblance to the much loved Sesame Street – don’t be fooled, this is not a bed time story to tell the kids! Avenue Q addresses and pokes fun at the issues and anxieties associated with entering adulthood, such as earning a living, finding love and growing up. With 9 of the 12 characters played by puppets, Avenue Q is definitely a show for the naughty at heart with a great sense of humor. In 2003, the Broadway production of Avenue Q won three Tony awards, including Best Musical against hit musical sensation Wicked and has since gone on to international success.
The Last Five Years has been cast! So Popera! would like to thank all the auditionees for sharing with us their time and talent – it was an honour. Congratulations to Jess Wilkinson and Mitchell Aitcheson on landing the roles of Catherine Hiatt and Jamie Wellerstein.

The Last Five Years is a fresh and contemporary musical from Tony-Award winning composer Jason Robert Brown, presenting a young couple’s romance in a new and exciting way.
The Last Five Years opened at Off-Broadway’s Minetta Lane Theatre on March 3rd, 2002 and will make its debut at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre in March 2010!
Every relationship has a beginning and an end…
Jason Robert Brown’s superb 2002 off-Broadway musical hit is brought to Wollongong for the first time by the team that brought you A Grave Affair in 2008.
Jamie, a successful novelist, and Cathy, a struggling actress, give contrasting accounts throughout their turbulent five-year relationship.
There are two sides to every story as responsibility for the relationship’s triumphs and failures is blurred.
Featuring two exceptional performers and backed by a chamber orchestra, The Last Five Years explores all the joy, jealousy and heartache of human relationships.
