Sydney’s Depot Theatre will be the venue for the Pulsating, electric contemporary LGBT pop-rock musical BARE in November.
BARE follows a group of students at a Catholic boarding school as they grapple with issues of sexuality, identity and the future. The show is set to take audiences on an emotional musical journey. BARE addresses issues of gay youth, mental health as well as the highs and lows of making your way into adulthood.
Jason and Peter face a world which they feel condemns their love. The pair is immersed in a world with ten other teens and journey through their final year at school, attending parties, final exams and confession. Peter and Jason have fallen in love, but they struggle with the fears of revealing their true selves to such an unforgiving world. With a unique sung-through pop score, heart-pounding lyrics and a cast of bright young characters, BARE rings with the sounds of youthful repression and revolt. BARE is a provocative, fresh and utterly honest look at the dangers of baring your soul … and the consequences of continuing to hide.
Following the 5:00pm show on Sunday, 4 December, we will hold a safe and open discussion forum for Sydney’s gay youth and young adults. Audiences will have the chance to speak with the cast about the show and ask select cast members about their own personal ‘coming out’ experiences. We will be offering a special discounted price of $39 per ticket for the 4 December performance. Simply use the code BAREFORUM when booking your ticket online.
The talented cast includes Aaron Robuck, Sophie Perkins, Alex Jeans, Natalie Abbott, Timothy Langan, Teale Howie, Alexandra Lewtas, Caroline Oayda, Matt Laird, Stephanie McKenna, Ibrahim Matar, Tara Hanrahan, Annette Vittetta, Penny Larkins and Gavin Leahy.
