CAREFUL, HE MIGHT HEAR YOU was a best-selling novel by New York-based Australian writer Sumner Locke Elliott. It became one of the ground-breaking Australian movies of the 1980's. Then, composer RON CREAGER (music) and DAVID SALE (book and lyrics) turned the property Into a stage musical which had its world premiere in Canberra in October 1999 with a Pro-Am company led by Australian show-biz icon Toni Lamond. On that occasion, legendary Broadway director/ producer HAROLD PRINCE,  a longtime supporter of the project, said: "I've spent a lot of time in Australia, and I kept wondering why an original indigenous musical hadn't emerged. CAREFUL could be the one. I'd love to see how it fares, because I think this is a worthy project, adapted expertly from Sumner's novel."

It fared well. Audiences - and critics - loved it.

CAREFUL, HE MIGHT HEAR YOU is set in Sydney, 1935. It's the story of two sisters fighting over custody of a little boy, the son of a third sister who died giving birth to him. Lila and her husband George have cared for the boy since he was born. Now, Vanessa, a West End musical comedy star, has ditched her career for reasons of her own to return to Australia and claim the boy - called PS by his mother as the post-script to her life. Vanessa's presence and claim to part-custody of PS chills the homely Lila even in the midst of a hot Australian summer......hence, A Winter Kind of Summer.

The ever-entwining saga of the Webb family… their friends, their foes and their fate. Tangled Webb’s is light-hearted soap opera, a wacky musical comedy pushed to high limits, an irreverent spoof of all the shows we’ve seen on daytime TV:  All My Children, Days of Our Lives and The Bold and the Beautiful.

And You Say I Can
sung by Barbara Creager
Building on a Rock
sung by Lynda Ramona and Family

A woman falls in love with God and discovers she is unable to successfully love anyone else.

A gospel-inspired musical based on the life of flamboyant California evangelist, Aimee Semple McPherson.  The show begins in Aimee’s early 20’s with her rise from a hand-to-mouth itinerant tent-show preaching circuit existence and follows her cross-country from Florida to California.  We see Aimee’s career expand until she builds the spectacular Angeles Temple in Los Angeles and becomes an international personality on radio and newsreels as well as crusading throughout America, Europe and China.  Aimee becomes involved in the still never solved mystery of her apparent drowning, only to turn up two weeks later saying she had been abducted.  Was she kidnapped or did she run off with her handsome radio announcer?  Furthering the drama, Aimee is engaged with a love/hate relationship with her mother.  They begin as partners and end as rivals.  Through all her personal turmoil, however, Aimee repeatedly returns to her call to preach the Gospel.  Since her death and spectacular funeral at the Temple, she remains a fascination public leader whose charisma and influence mesmerizes thousands.
