Hayes Theatre Co

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.

Ride The Cyclone

  • Musicals

The lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak roller coaster accident. When they awake in Limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites them to compete to win a prize like no other – a shot at returning to life. Sounds like a pretty wild ride, right?

This hilarious and exhilarating production is a labour of passion for the Hayes’ artistic directors Richard Carroll and Victoria Falconer, who are keeping the fires burning at Sydney’s heart of musical theatre and cabaret.  The fresh young cast that will slay on the stage comprises Natalie Abbott (Zombie! The Musical, Muriel’s Wedding) as Constance, Bailey Dunnage (aka Aubrey Haive from RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under) as Noel, Lincoln Elliott (The Hello Girls, Sunshine Super Girl) as Mischa, Justin Gray making his professional debut as Ricky, Ava Madon (A Little Night Music, The Lucky Country) as Jane Doe, and Karis Oka (Fangirls, Six) as Ocean, with understudies Mel O’Brien (Fangirls) and Alec Steedman (
