"With the potential to become something of a cult-classic, People Suck does well to deliver an entertaining piece of theatre...Filled with delightful and hilarious songs about the worst of humanity, it's easy to quickly become a fan of this musical." ARTS HUB

 

We are SALTY THEATRE

WOMEN IN THEATRE | DIVERSITY IN ARTS

 

Based out of Melbourne, Salty Theatre is dedicated to producing never before seen musicals and plays in Australia. We work directly with new writers, directors, producers and performers keeping our practice at a grass-roots level. Our direct approach makes us able to form solid, tangible connections with creatives across the globe, with many of our cast benefiting from having international creative teams collaborating, watching and being a part of the rehearsal process. Salty Theatre understands that change cannot happen in the theatre unless we actively seek and challenge our own fundamental beliefs and core values.

“What may not be as familiar to a Melbourne audience is the world of Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, workshops and theatre festivals. In Melbourne, opportunities to see lesser known musicals in a good theatre with a solid cast and production values are not as frequent as somewhere like NYC… That was until Salty Theatre came onto the scene.” - YOU SHOULD SEE IT MELB

News & Updates

Still unsure about PEOPLE SUCK - A MUSICAL AIRING OF GRIEVANCES and what it's about? Well, if you don’t mind being offended, enlightened and having your inner “Jerk” challenged than grab a ticket and strap yourself in because this is the show for you…

“If you love grammar, laughter, Darwinism and ranting about all that is wrong in the world, this show is literally designed for you. People Suck – a song cycle that won a swag of awards at the 2015 Toronto Fringe Festival (including Best of the Fringe) had its audience in stitches on opening night, when the Australian cast burst onto the Butterfly Club stage to air out the many thoughts we all have – but would never dare say. Penned by Megan Phillips and Peter Cavell, this song-cycle, which in its opening disclaimer likens itself to the seminal Myths and Hymns, Songs for a New World and Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens, holds true to its purpose. The writing is top quality – filled with a plethora of songs that will have any budding musical theatre aficionado gagging for the sheet music to this comedic jackpot.” - YOU SHOULD SEE IT MELB 4.5 STARS
