If the chill isn't enough reason to take your culture indoors, then something below should take your fancy.

When it comes to all-singing, all-dancing musical hits, The Wizard of Oz and Beautiful: The Carole King Musical are still going strong, while Lin-Manuel Miranda's Bring it On musical is having a short Melbourne season.

Melbourne Theatre Company is having a busy month: as Wild wraps up, Lisa McCune takes on a provocative new play and Patricia Cornelius takes on Lorca in The House of Bernarda AlbaAnd the Australian Ballet is in town this month with two works: its classic production of The Merry Widow and a triple bill of contemporary works.
