Paul Hayman presents

Cloudland the Musical

4 March 2023

From the 1940’s to the early 80’s, Cloudland Ballroom played host to a multitude of National and International acts. The venue was THE Social Hub of not only Brisbane. It attracted regular partygoers from all parts of not just Australia, but the world.

The culmination of a decade of Research and Development, Cloudland the Musical is a story filled with drama and controversy. If there was ever a Musical to be written based on real events, this is it. After all, Cloudland played host to many of the Music Icons that other Musicals have been written about!

With a stunning cast of world-class Singers, Actors, Musicians and Dancers and exquisitely choreographed by Kylie Wall, Cloudland the Musical is a visual feast.

The score comprises of a blend of original compositions and carefully selected works from Iconic Australian and International artists that played at the venue.

Featuring the music of: Cold Chisel, Buddy Holly, The Angels, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny O’Keefe, The Bee Gees, Australian Crawl, The Go Betweens, Mental as Anything, Bill Haley, Split Enz and more.

Cloudland the Musical, tells the story of how this culturally significant venue impacted the youth who visited it for over 5 decades.  The use of 21st Century technology and masterfully re-created digital images bring to life this important facet in the emergence of the Australian Music scene.

Australia’s Greatest Musical, based on real events!

Cloudland the Musical is proudly supported by the federal Government through the RISE Fund program.
