MAC takes award-winning cabaret comedy on the road

Published on 11 October 2017


Mildura Arts Centre will present Reception: The Musical, an award-winning original cabaret comedy inspired by the chaotic office environment later this month.

Portraying the story of a receptionist who finds joy in the manic world of customer service, stationery orders and thinking on your swivel chair, Reception: The Musical is inspired by true stories from behind the front desk, and is a must-see for office workers and theatre lovers everywhere.

This award winning cabaret comedy will be shown in Werrimull Town Hall, The Roxy in Ouyen and Mildura Arts Centre from 19 October to 21 October and is guaranteed to appeal to fans of cabaret and music theatre, or anyone wanting a fun, entertaining night out. 

Written by award-winning writer/performer Bethany Simons and leading Melbourne composer Peter de Jager, this uplifting and hilarious production features a toe-tapping original score.

Songs include My Name is Bethany (Not Stephanie), Do You Have Sticky Tape, I Can’t Help But Help, They Ring My Bell and many more.

Mildura Rural City Councillor for Arts and Culture Jason Modica said the show is ideal for students, social clubs and anyone who has worked in reception or administration.

“It’s wonderful to see Mildura Arts Centre taking a show on the road that locals living in  Werrimull and Ouyen communities can see in their own backyards without having to travel,” Cr Modica said.
