For over 40 years, an Iconic Building sat high on top of Bowen Hills overlooking Brisbane. A venue that could hold over 5,000 people and that was, in Australia, an integral part of the most defining decades of popular music. From before the birth of Rock’n’Roll to the post punk ‘New Wave’ movement.

From the 1940’s to the early 80’s, Cloudland Ballroom played host to a multitude of National and International acts. The building was THE Social Hub of not only Brisbane. It attracted regular partygoers from Regional areas throughout QLD, NSW and beyond.

The overnight demolition of Cloudland Ballroom in 1982 stunned not only the local residents, but people from all corners of the globe who had attended the venue during its lifetime.

The culmination of a decade of Research and Development, Cloudland the Musical is a story filled with drama and controversy. If there was ever a Musical to be written based on real events, this is it. After all, Cloudland played host to many of the Music Icons that other Musicals have been written about!

With a stunning cast of world-class Singers, Actors, Musicians and Dancers and exquisitely choreographed by Kylie Wall, Cloudland the Musical is a visual feast.

The score comprises of a blend of original compositions and carefully selected works from Iconic Australian and International artists that played at the venue.

Featuring the music of: The Bee Gees, Buddy Holly, The Angels, Jerry Lee Lewis, Cold Chisel, Johnny O’Keefe, Midnight Oil, Australian Crawl, Normie Rowe, Mental as Anything, Bill Haley, Split Enz and more.

Cloudland the Musical, tells the story of how this culturally significant venue impacted the youth of Queensland and beyond for over 5 decades. Cloudland was no ordinary venue. This is definitely no ordinary production! The use of 21st Century technology and masterfully re-created digital images bring to life this important facet in the emergence of the Australian Music scene.

This is Australia’s Greatest Musical, based on real events!

Cloudland the Musical is proudly supported by the federal Government through the RISE Fund program.
