Australia’s greatest musical, based on real events!

From the 1940s to the early '80s, 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.

The culmination of nine years of research and development, Cloudland the Musical is a story filled with drama and controversy. If there was ever a musical to be written based on real events, this is it! After all, Cloudland played host to many of the music icons other musicals have been written about!

With a stunning cast of over 30 world-class dancers, musicians and actors, and exquisitely choreographed by professional choreographer and dancer Kylie Wall, Cloudland the Musical is visually spectacular. Each song has been carefully selected from the vast array of Australian and international bands that played this venue, specifically arranged for the nine piece band. songs from the Bee Gees, Buddy Holly, Dragon, The Angels, Jerry Lee Lewis, UB40, Cold Chisel, Johnny O’Keefe, Midnight Oil, Australian Crawl, Normie Rowe, Mental as Anything and more, this will be a night not to be missed!

Cloudland the Musical is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
