Presented by Subiaco Arts Centre and Western Sky Theatre (in association with Holland St Productions) ·

30 characters. 2 men. One crazy dream.

In this musical rollercoaster ride, two aspiring playwrights perform a backers’ audition for their new project: a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of misguided enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract. In the process, we learn a lot about them, and a little bit about Gutenberg … maybe.

“★★★★ … I wouldn’t miss it for quids” The West Australian
“(A) smooth, fast paced and clever show” Theatre People

GUTENBERG! THE MUSICAL! was the first Off-Broadway transfer for the acclaimed New York comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. It has gone on to delight audiences around the world and is an expertly crafted piece of comedy that appeals to almost anyone with a heartbeat and a (slightly twisted) sense of humour.
