Sydney theatre in December

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

By Ben Neutze

Sydney's year of theatre is wrapping with some high profile shows: Yael Stone and Noni Hazlehurst are bringing fireworks to the stage in STC's five-star The Beauty Queen of Leenane, while Belvoir is telling the story of a local dynasty in Packer & Sons. When it comes to musicals, it's all about precociously talented youngsters, with Billy Elliot and School of Rock both continuing their Sydney runs.

Save some dollars, though: Sydney Festival has announced its January program, and our hit list of shows includes some must-see theatre and dance.
