Only Melbourne Shows in 2020

In 1964, legendary entertainer Judy Garland came to Australia and experienced triumph and tragedy that epitomised her life.

Written by Bill Farr and starring operatic contralto Liane Keegan as Judy Garland, Judy, Australia 1964 recreates one of the most controversial episodes in Australian entertainment history.

It was one of the most eagerly awaited show-business events ever in Australia. In Sydney, Garland was in full flight, her performances thrilling the 10,000-strong capacity crowds. The critics raved.

In Melbourne, her Festival Hall event was a disaster. Alcohol, fatigue and a lifetime of personal problems had taken a heavy toll. She arrived 70 minutes late, and could not win over her restless audience.

Over twelve short days, Garland's life unravelled as her legendary power to triumph over adversity finally failed her.


Judy, Australia 1964 showcases Garland's biggest hits, written by some of the great composers of the 20th century, but also tells of her struggles with the pressures of stardom and substance abuse.

Backed by a seven-piece showband, Keegan is spellbinding as the iconic star.

Don't miss Judy, Australia 1964. Three Melbourne shows only: Friday 27 March 8pm (plus post-show Q & A), Saturday 28 March 8pm and Sunday 29 March 2pm.
