Sydney theatre in July

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

Sydney's theatre scene sometimes cools down a bit when we enter winter, but this July is proving to be blazing hot with musicals, plays, cabaret and more. Muriel's Wedding has finally returned home after its sold-out premiere season in late 2017, while Sydney Theatre Company is opening its bold new production of Lord of the Flies.

If you prefer something a little more intimate, there are two fabulous festivals specialising in the up-close-and-personal: Sydney Cabaret Festival and Bondi Feast.
