Moreton Bay Theatre Company (MBTC) are changing the rules of theatre with their gender-reversed cabaret ‘Backwards Broadway’ touring southeast Queensland and coming to The J, Noosa on Friday 12 October. The show based on the annual Broadway Backwards fundraiser in New York is hoping to give back to the community by supporting Headspace’s mental health and LGTBQ+ support groups.
Founder of MBTC, Sharon Bapty, says that Backwards Broadway is a show run by young people, to support young people. “Our aim with Backwards Broadway is to encourage and develop young people.” “We are striving to create an all-inclusive theatre and performing experience, integrating people of all abilities and ages,” Sharon said.
Featuring a diverse range of performers, the youngest, Oliver Hawkins is only 13. The show also includes drag-queen, Jenny Vennom who will ignite the stage with her rendition of Poor Unfortunate Souls. Backwards Broadway will bring to life popular Broadway hits from musicals such as Chicago, Aladdin, Hamilton and Jesus Christ Superstar all performed gender reversed and all sure to entertain.
Director of the show, Matthew Bapty, says that he hopes audiences walk away from Backwards Broadway with an open mind. “The vision is to show all the aspects of theatre that we know and love in the most unrestrained way possible; where our performers aren’t limited in any way by their sex or background or by what is traditionally presented in society. “Everyone deserves to feel welcomed and appreciated in the world and we wanted to represent that on stage,” Matthew Bapty said.
The show is Parental Guidance recommended and is sure to be a fun and entertaining night out.
