Things are getting hotter at HOTA

Feeling a little chilly gang? We gotchu. What better way to say g’day to winter than warming up with tickets for these adults-only treats? Strictly for art lovers who like their theatre with a touch of spice.

THE IRRESISTIBLE | 27-29 June

A child with otherworldly powers sees mysterious lights in the sky. Black ooze seeps into the white fog as time and space loop and corrupt. ‘Twin Peaks’ meets ‘Stranger Things’ in this darkly funny sci-fi thriller.

April has long chosen to forget the inexplicable event that defined her childhood. Her sister remains haunted. When April’s niece comes to stay the memory that has permeated every moment of their lives begins to unravel.

Created by Perth’s most exciting performance makers Side Pony Productions and The Last Great Hunt, the play is intoxicatingly creepy, bold and original, heading to the Gold Coast direct from Dark Mofo.

Note: this event is recommended for ages 16 and above, and contains adult themes. Ages 16-30 pay your age, all other adults $30. Tickets here.

HAIR: THE ORIGINAL TRIBAL ROCK MUSICAL | 11 + 12 October

Radical, rebellious and tribal, 2019 marks 50 years since Australia first let its HAIR down in this genre defining revolutionary rock musical. All these years on, we continue to challenge the establishment with this brand new Australian production that breaks convention and all the rules.

Defy your expectations with this contemporary take on the classic hair raising musical. Follow the rule breakers, yearning for change in the world of the late 60’s. Fighting for freedom, human rights, the environment and peace in times of war, HAIR puts a mirror to today’s society and asks the question, how far have we really come?

Starring four time Logie winner Hugh Sheridan (‘Packed to the Rafters’) and powerhouse vocalist Paulini (‘The Bodyguard’), this brand new Australian production features all the hits from the Grammy Award winning score including ‘Aquarius’, ‘Let the Sunshine In’, ‘Good Morning Starshine’ and ‘I Got Life’. Produced by David M. Hawkins (‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’) and led by maverick young director Declan Greene (‘Blackie Blackie Brown’).

Nudity, language, and all the other fun warnings apply. Tickets here.
