Anyone who knows me is well aware that two of my greatest passions are musical theatre and fantasy epics. It’s an unconventional pairing, I can admit, but it certainly seems like I’m not the only person who appreciates the intersection between the two.
A musical parody of the gigantic, critically-acclaimed book and HBO series, Game Of Thrones, is hitting the Sydney Opera House from the 5th to the 23rd of June this year – and yes, there will be just as much cussing and nudity as the show.
Thrones! will follow a group of Game of Thrones-obsessed fans as they plan out their epic viewing schedule for the new season, only to find that one of their mates hasn’t actually seen it before. So ya know, naturally they re-enact the series to catch ’em up.
this will absolutely be their mate’s face when they re-enact the Red Wedding
Whether you’re strictly team Daenerys or if you’ve secretly still got hope that a Stark will claim the Iron Throne (ahem, Sansa should be queen and I’ll hear nothing to the contrary), you’ll wanna feast your eyes on this spectacle.
If you’re super keen to go with one of your GoT-obsessed mates but they don’t have the cash, don’t forget to check if they’re a Lannister before you sling ’em the funds to go. You’ll get it back – they always pay their debts.
Tickets are on sale right now, so get those arms reaching into your pockets because you really don’t wanna end up missing the boat (unless you’re Gendry, then it probs would’ve saved you a bunch of muscle soreness after all that rowing).
tbh the rowing paid off though
Besides, when it comes out in June we’ll have finally hit winter… The long night.
White Walkers could be all over the place, but we’re pretty confident they aren’t in the Sydney Opera House, so it’s probs safe to hole up there and enjoy a good theatre show while you’re at it.
If you know what’s good for you, you’ll grab your tix HERE, and get ’em quick. If, like Jon Snow, you know nothing?
Just take our word for it.
