Helpmann Award-winning musical theatre star Elise McCann will bring the splendiferous world of Roald Dahl to the stage Dahlesque. Featuring music from the mega-hit Matilda The Musical by Tim Minchin, the classic Gene Wilder movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s James and the Giant Peach, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and more, Dahlesque explores the sardonic world of the irrepressible Dahl in an irreverent and magical performance. In two giganticus concerts, McCann will explore the fantastical imagination and wickedly unforgettable characters of these beloved adaptations, sharing tales about the world’s best storyteller from his personal life and his popular novels. Performing music from stage shows and films adapted from Dahl’s work, McCann will be accompanied by QPAC Company in Residence Camerata – Queensland’s Chamber Orchestra, while the audience can join in with playful guessing games and discovery.
