Cloudland The Musical
Starring Paul Hayman
For over 40 years, an Iconic Building sat high on top of Bowen Hills overlooking Brisbane. A venue that could hold over 5,000 people and that was, in Australia, an integral part of the most defining decades of popular music. From before the birth of Rock’n’Roll to the ‘New Wave’ movement.
From the 1940’s to the early 80’s, Cloudland Ballroom played host to a multitude of National and International acts. The building was THE Social Hub of not only Brisbane. It attracted regular partygoers from Regional areas throughout QLD, NSW and beyond.
The overnight demolition of Cloudland Ballroom in 1982 stunned not only the local residents, but people from all corners of the globe who had attended the venue during its lifetime.
A story filled with drama and controversy, if there was ever a Musical to be written based on real events, this is it. Cloudland hosted many of the Icons that other Musicals have been written about!
With a stunning cast of over 30 International Dancers, Musicians and Actors, exquisitely choreographed by International Choreographer & Dancer, Kylie Wall and Andrew Fairfull (Choreographer for Dancing with the Stars NZ). Cloudland the Musical is visually spectacular.
Cloudland’s unique standing as the Entertainment venue to 3 Generations of Australians sets the tone for an unparalleled Music Score to this production.
