Dubbo Champion-ship Wrestling review
Sports Al Dente
What is Dubbo Champion-ship?
It is an
Aussie rock musical
circumstance brings Rosa back to her hometown on the eve of Dubbomania
Rose is drawn into a monumental battle over family and identity
Each and every one of the performers on stage commits to their larger-than-life character
with just the right amount of earnestness
There is not a weak link among the cast as everyone pulls off their role nicely.
The jokes land a little meaner than they should
the second act, which needs to chart some real changes of heart, doesn’t quite land.
The Cullens have written a tribute to Oz Rock, largely 80s-inflected pub sounds
filtered through musical theatre melodies
Dubbo Championship Wrestling would benefit from thoughtful revisions and character-focused dramaturgy
