Time Out says

Named after Australian musical theatre legend Nancye Hayes OAM, this 110-seat theatre is home to a co-op of theatre companies going by 'Independent Music Theatre', and a home-away-from-home for New Musicals Australia. The building was previously the home of Darlinghurst Theatre Company and called the Darlinghurst Theatre, but changed hands in 2013 and re-opened as Hayes Theatre Co in February 2014.

Hayes Theatre Cabaret Season

  • Musicals

From celebrating one of Sydney’s original cabaret icons and trans trailblazers, to honouring queer artists and songwriters, to revisions of sold-out shows by a killer impromptu LGBTQIA+ cast – the February cabaret season at the Hayes Theatre is promising to be a hit. It's perfect timing, with all the fabulousness unfolding across the city for the annual Sydney Mardi Gras Festival. Amongst other productions at the humble Potts Point theatre, there are five main cabarets that are part of the program: Theys at the Hayes, Homage, Musical Bang Bang 2, Carlotta, and In Vogue. Don’t know where to start? Let us illuminate you. We are warming up our pipes to sing along at Homage (Feb 22-25), an event all for queer community and by queer artists. A spin-off of the wildly popular Queerstories project, Homage is hosted by Maeve Marsden (director of Lizzie at the Hayes) and the Hayes' co-artistic director Victoria Falconer with a line-up featuring Brendan Maclean, Tom Sharah, Vidya Makan, Malaika Mfalme (Thursday and Saturday) and RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under runner-up Kween Kong (Sunday). Any hit song is game for performance, but the one condition is that it must have been made big by a queer artist. Another show exploring a little bit of this and a little bit of that is Musical Bang Bang 2 (Feb 23), a follow up to its first impromptu show that sold out in under 24 hours in Melbourne earlier this year. Meanwhile, In Vogue (Mar 1-3) is a comprehensive exploration of the work of pop ic

Zombie! The Musical

  • Musicals

Finally, it's the silly zombie horror musical we’ve been waiting for. Zombie! The Musical is a brand new Australian work from the big brains of Laura Murphy, the hottest new name in Australian musical theatre (she’s behind shows like The Lovers and The Dismissal). The blood, guts and high notes are taking over the Hayes Theatre in Kings Cross from early March. Zombie! takes us back to the Sydney of the ’90s and into the dramas of a dedicated community theatre troupe as they’re frantically rehearsing in the final hours before their big opening night. But little do they know that beyond the theatre's walls, a highly infectious disease is rapidly spreading through the city – turning its victims into something terrifying, something undead. Will humanity take its final bow, or can the power of musical theatre save the friggin’ world?  The “practically perfect” leading lady of the recent national tour of Mary Poppins, Stefanie Jones, is hanging up her umbrella to join an excellent cast for this bombastic new apocalyptic show. Under the direction of Darren Yap, you can also expect to see star of stage and screen Natalie Abbott (The Lovers, Muriel's Wedding The Musical, Aftertaste), West End legend Tamsin Carroll (Everybody's Talking About Jamie, Strictly Ballroom, Miss Saigon), Chelsea Dawson (Six! The Musical, Mamma Mia!), Nancy Denis (Clydes, Blythe Spirit, The Great Gatsby), Ryan Gonzalez (Moulin Rouge, Jersey Boys, In The Heights), Drew Livingston (Mamma Mia!, Once, Billy Elliot
