King Kong

This iconic story of an enormous creature and his battle for survival in New York City is being produced by Global Creatures, the creators of spectaculars Walking With Dinosaurs and How To Train Your Dragon, and helmed by American theatre and opera director Daniel Kramer, with a book by Craig Lucas.

Staged at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre featured a cast of 40 actors, singers, dancers and puppeteers who will bring to life the two opposing worlds of the story - 1930s New York City, and Skull Island, the home of Kong.

Featuring revamped 1930s Broadway classics and dazzling new songs from the world’s best contemporary artists, as well as opulent costumes, awe-inspiring sets and a creature who will fill the stage, KING KONG will be an unforgettable experience.

The award-winning creative team, drawn from around the world, includes Marius de Vries (Original Music Compositions & Arrangements), Michael Mitnick (Original & Adapted Lyrics), Peter England (Production Design), John O’Connell, (Choreography), Roger Kirk (Costume Design), Peter Mumford (Lighting Design), Gavin Robins (Aerial/Circus Direction), Frieder Weiss (Projection Design), Peter Hylenski (Sound Design) and Peter Wilson (Puppetry Direction).

Kong, the towering gorilla, is being designed by Sonny Tilders and created by Melbourne-based The Creature Technology Company, whose animatronic skills brought to life the groundbreaking dinosaurs and dragons in Global Creatures’ two previous productions.

After a nine-month run at the Regent Theatre, the production will close on February 16, 2014 so get your tickets now and don't miss this amazing show.
