Director Tammy Linde has been on the SE Queensland Theatre scene for several years now, most recently directing the Sondheim classic ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ for the Ipswich Musical Theatre Company. On the back of this success, she created the cabaret ‘I Dated Batman’ to much critical acclaim. She is super excited to be back in the director’s chair for this magical production.

Benjamin Tubb-Hearne has bursted onto the SE Queensland Musical Theatre scene in the last few years, having musically directed Phoenix Ensemble’s productions of ‘La Cage Aux Folles’, ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ & ‘Next to Normal’. He also musically directed Savoyards”The King and I’in June 2017 to much acclaim with a 20 piece orchestra and sold out shows across the whole season. He is extremely excited for this show – it’s one of his favourites! Ben & Tammy are excited to work together again after a brief spell during Sunday in the Park with George.


Edward Bloom has lived a full and fantastical life, populated by witches, giants, and mermaids, marked by true love that stops time in its tracks, and framed by heroics that push the limits of believability. His adult son, Will, is no longer amused by his father’s fantastical tales, insisting on a rational rather than a fantastical account of one’s life. When Edward’s health declines, and Will learns that he and his wife, Josephine, will have a son of their own, Will decides to find out his father’s “true” life story, once and for all. Big Fish is a heartfelt, powerful, and truly magical musical about fathers, sons, and the stories that we use to define our identities. With spine-tinglingly beautiful music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, and a funny, heartwarming book by John August, Big Fish is a magnificent “big fish” of a tale, itself — spectacular, fantastical, and overflowing with love.

This show is perfect for ALL the family – with amazing songs, choreography and a heart warming story.
