Australia’s leading lady of musical theatre, Marina Prior, is set to headline the ultimate cast in Superstars when it hits the Civic Theatre stage from 8 to 10 March 2024.


Superstars will be a stunning two-and-a-half-hour musical journey, with hits from the best-loved musicals of the Twentieth Century, including Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Starlight Express, Aida, Chess, Mamma Mia, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Sunset Boulevard, The Phantom of the Opera and many more!

Joining forces with Marina to honour the musical genius of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, are Silvie Paladino, of Les Miserables, Mamma, Mia, Cats and Chess fame, Joshua Robson, fresh from his triumphant portrayal of the title role in Handa Opera’s The Phantom of the Opera on Sydney Harbour, and Australia’s very own Catherine of Aragon and Eliza Hamilton, Chloé Zuel. Local powerhouses Katie Blaxland, Tayla Choice, Thomas James, Jon Murphy, Layla Schillert, Amy Vee, Marty Worrall and Theo Williams will join the four leads.

Prepare to be taken on a musical journey that will have you falling in love all over again with songs that are beloved by hundreds of millions worldwide. Both Lloyd Webber and Rice have the coveted claim to fame of being EGOTs, winners of the world’s four most prestigious music-related awards – the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards.

Directed by Erin James, with musical direction from ARIA nominee Dan Wilson, this production will be spectacular in every sense of the word, with the vocalists backed by a 100-voice mass choir and the Hunter Pops Orchestra (conducted by Dan Wilson). The production will feature choreographic work from the highly acclaimed National College of Dance, with pieces specially devised for this performance under the guidance of choreographer Lauren Harvey.
