After a successful Sydney season, VIOLET is catching the bus down to Melbourne!


VIOLET is a musical telling the story of a young disfigured woman, who embarks on a journey by bus from her farm in Spruce Pine, North Carolina, all the way to Tulsa, Oklahoma to find the preacher she believes can heal her. 

Facially scarred as a child in a tragic accident, Violet undertakes her search for beauty amidst the image obsessed landscape and racial tensions of the American South in the 1960s. Journeying across the country with a rag bag of fellow travellers, she discovers that true beauty is not always in the eye of the beholder.

With a vibrant, multi-genre score by Jeanine Tesori (Caroline or Change, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Shrek The Musical), and libretto by Brian Crawley (The Little Princess), VIOLET encompasses show-stopping anthems, American roots, soul and gospel.
