The Wharf Revue-WHOOPS!

The singing, dancing extravaganza, The Wharf Revue, returns with bite for an annual dose of razor-sharp satire and special blend of side-splitting sketches and musical hilarity. Nothing and no one will be spared as the team return for another savage comic swipe at Riverside Theatres from Wednesday, 11 to Saturday, 14 September. At least we can count on the Federal Election for delivering one good news story: the provision of plenty of new material for these talented satirists...Whoops! Combining a cast of colourful characters - Eddie Obeid, Ian Macdonald, Cardinal George Pell, Simon Thomson, Tony Abbott, Gina Rinehart, Clive Palmer and Julia Gillard, and Phil Scott’s boisterous songs; The Wharf Revue will be packed full of up-to-the-minute satire which makes it such a hit year after year. “Riverside is always welcoming to the Wharf Revue team, drawing audiences in with their wit and humour and this year’s cast are sure to do the same,” said Director of Riverside, Robert Love.

When Amanda Bishop, Simon Burke and Andrew Warboys join Jonathan Biggins and Drew Forsythe on stage it’s a guaranteed lark. Riverside Theatres is fast attracting a large and loyal band of fans, who revel in the vicious, malicious, but most of all deliciously and outrageously funny content. Riverside is also showing an open-captioned performance of WHOOPS! on Saturday 14 September at 2pm for the hearing impaired. The mighty and ridiculous will duck for cover as The Wharf Revue team swoops in for another go at poking politics and popular culture in the eye with its carefully sharpened satire stick. With an extremely limited season of Riverside Theatres performances, WHOOPS! The Wharf Revue 2013 will sell out, so get in early and snap up your tickets now.
