Belvoir ends its year in festive mode with a pantomime. Written by Virginia Gay, who co-directs with Richard Carroll, The Boomkak Panto is set in a dry, dusty Aussie town, somewhere in the back of beyond. A Big Developer has set his sights on the town, and the little community finds itself in a fight for survival. So what do they do? Put on a panto, of course.

Belvoir is proud to announce the reopening of Belvoir St Theatre with the world premiere of The Boomkak Panto, a ridiculously flamboyant and hilarious pantomime by award-winning actor Virginia Gay.
From the creative minds behind Belvoir’s 2018 smash hit Calamity Jane comes a piece of utter joy to reopen the theatre after 2021’s lockdown– a love letter to theatre, to community, to the resilience of our Little Aussie Towns™ – lo-fi, big-hearted, and Belvoir to the back teeth.
A dry, dusty little Aussie town, somewhere in the back of beyond, with all the decency, diversity – and division – that you’d expect in a rural microcosm. But Boomkak is confronting some massive challenges now that the Big Developer has set his sights on the town, and this little community finds itself in a fight for survival. How can they possibly fight back?
By putting on a panto, of course!
