The musical love child of Judge Judy and Jerry Springer

Multi-award-winning Davine Productions is proudly presenting the hilarious new musical comedy parody, Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court, as part of the 2019 Adelaide Fringe. Tickets are now on sale for this strictly limited season (10 shows only).

Held at The Parks Theatre, Angle Park, Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court stars Adelaide music theatre actress Katie Packer in the lead role of Judge Jackie, a reality TV judge known for her firm grasp of the gavel and a cutting wit, who currently presides over the highest court on Reality TV.

"Musical comedy justice is served in a new CLO Cabaret show featuring catchy tunes, clever lyrics, juicy characters and important roles for audience members throughout the proceedings." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The production marks Packer's return to the Davine stable and she will be supported by an impressive array of Adelaide talent including Adam Goodburn (State Opera SA), Paul Rodda (The Story Of My Life), Joshua Angeles (It's Only Life) and Casmira Hambledon (Violet).

Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court is also another Australian premiere for Davine director David Gauci, following his string of award-winning Fringe shows: Xanadu, Altar Boyz, Violet, Flower Children, It's Only Life and The Story Of My Life. Music director Martin Cheney and choreographer Kerry-Lynne Hauber, who were also part of those award-winning productions, are also involved.

The New York City writing team behind Judge Jackie, Michael Kooman (music) and Christopher Dimond (book and lyrics), are also much honoured with the Jonathon Larson Grant, Fred Ebb Award and Lorenz Hart Award topping a long list. Their other musicals include The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes, Vampirina, Homemade Fusion and most recently Romantics Anonymous which premiered at London's Globe theatre this year.

Based on a concept by Van Kaplan, Judge Jackie presides over a three-ring circus of America's most chaotic civil cases in her reality TV courtroom. When faced with a drop in ratings that threatens her show, she must ramp up the drama to keep her audience while finding true love where she least expects it.

Top Adelaide talent will be showcased as five actors will portray twenty-five characters in this delightful disregard of jurisprudence. The Davine design team for Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court includes David Gauci and Gavin Cianci (scenery), Mike Phillips (lighting), Louise Watkins (costumes) and Terri Dayman (props).

Tickets for Judge Jackie: Disorder in the Court are now on sale. The season will run from February 20 to March 2, 2019, with a matinee on March 2. Evening shows are at 7.30 and the matinee at 2pm.
