AWE-INSPIRING. MAGICAL. DYNAMIC
Global Creatures is at the forefront of innovative stagecraft and spectacular theatricality.
Global Creatures’ first venture was Walking with Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular. Based on the eponymous award-winning BBC-TV series, the live show was developed through the integration of state-of-the-art animatronics.
Global Creatures’ Walking with Dinosaurs was conceived and developed in Australia and made its international debut in 2007. The show has since toured the world and become a phenomenal global success story.
Global Creatures’ second production, How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular, completed a North American tour in 2013 after successful seasons in Australia and New Zealand. The co-production with Dreamworks Theatricals further revealed Global Creatures ingenuity and visual prowess in bringing mythical dragons to vivid life. In a fitting partnership, Global Creatures joined forces with The National Theatre of Great Britain to produce the Australian premiere season of the acclaimed Tony Award-winning theatre show, War Horse. The intimate and epic production presented a seamless blend of exceptional puppetry, fine acting and authentic storytelling. Five years in the making, the ground-breaking theatre production King Kong had its world premiere at the Regent Theatre, Melbourne, in 2013. The show’s “leading man” is arguably the most authentic, technologically-advanced puppet in the world. Audiences have been stunned and spellbound by Kong’s life-like attributes, both physical and emotional. King Kong will make its Broadway debut in the fall of 2018 at the Broadway Theatre. King Kong is written by Jack Thorne and will be directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie.
Global Creatures joined with Bazmark to bring Baz Luhrmann’s popular 1992 hit Australian film Strictly Ballroom The Musical to the stage. Strictly Ballroom The Musical had its global premiere at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, Sydney, in 2014. The first international staging of Strictly Ballroom The Musical premiered at West Yorkshire Playhouse, England in November 2016 and recently had its North American premiere at the Prince Of Wales Theatre, Toronto, Canada as part of the Mirvish Theatre Season 2016-2017, and now makes it’s West End debut at the Piccadilly Theatre, London on 11th April 2018. On September 1st 2016 Global Creatures announced that Baz Luhrmann’s revolutionary film Moulin Rouge! will come to the stage as a new musical, with a book by John Logan and directed by Alex Timbers.
Most recently Global Creatures announced that it will join forces with Sydney Theatre Company to produce the World Premiere of Muriel’s Wedding The Musical which will play at Sydney’s Roslyn Packer Theatre, as a major highlight of Sydney Theatre Company’s 2017 season.
