Step into the audition room of Michelle Brasier and her turtlenecked ex-ex-husband–director Ben Russell, as they team up to find the next big star of the Wagga Wagga Amateur Musical Theatre Society. 

The hopefuls? A handful of your favourite comedy superstars. Last year Zachary Ruane, Reuben Kaye, Virginia Gay, and Eddie Perfect tried their darnedest to get through to the dance call.

Whether you come for the cameos, the classic hits, the all-too-familiar characters, the crash-and-burns, or the ill-thought-out choreography—this world-colliding cult hit is one that deserves a call-back.   

★★★★★ If auditioning was this much fun in real life, we’d all do it.
