Sydney theatre in April

Here's what and who to check out on Sydney stages this month – and where to find 'em

By Ben Neutze

Autumn might be upon us, but that doesn't mean you should stay inside. Opera Australia's outdoor production of West Side Story is a hit, no matter rain, hail or shine (OK, probably not hail). But if you prefer the luxury of four walls and a roof, there's still plenty to see around the city: Saturday Night Fever is at the Sydney Lyric, the brilliant Barbara and the Camp Dogs returns to Belvoir and Zahra Newman, Hugo Weaving and Pamela Rabe are teaming up for Cat on a Hot Tin RoofAnd if you're in desperate need of a good laugh, the Sydney Comedy Festival is here.

Heading out to the harbour?

Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour - the guide


Anyone who says they go to the opera for the sound quality is lying; if you want the ultimate version of any given opera, you sit at home with your Bose headphones and your imagination. But if you want the spectacle and emotion of the opera, head to Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour (HOSH), Opera Australia's now-annual outdoor production at Mrs Macquarie's Point.
