Dr Richard Lurve has finished 400th out of 399 graduates from medical school.

Known more for his partying and womanizing, his chances of getting employed are grim. Then a posting becomes available at St Wretched’s, an ailing hospital in regional Queensland.

Elated to have a job, Dr Lurve soon discovers that all is not as it seems at this hospital where the mysterious “Syringe of Shame” has created havoc.

The crazy characters he meets will sing, dance, improvise and brave their way through the hilarious storyline which features plenty of local references, topical events and laugh out loud moments along with a little bit of audience interaction and a whole lot of fun!

TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT!!!!

💉💊👨‍⚕️ 💉💊👨‍⚕️ 💉💊👨‍⚕️ 💉💊👨‍⚕️

Three months ago we were holding auditions, as over 30 talented performers gave it their all.

🌟 24 were cast in the roles and since that time, have been working hard on singing, dancing, lines, character exploration and centring, relationships and comic timing.

🌟 Costumes have been lovingly sewn, sourced, adjusted and re-created.

🌟 Props have been discovered and/or made.

🌟 Set pieces have been constructed, painted and finalized.

NOW it’s time to bring all that collective talent to the stage and show audiences what we’ve all been up to!

Get ready for a show that’s quirky, cheeky, bawdy, light hearted, entertaining, a little bit crazy and a whole lot of fun!!

💉💊👨‍⚕️ 💉💊👨‍⚕️ 💉💊👨‍⚕️ 💉💊👨‍⚕️

We are so excited for the QUEENSLAND DEBUT of Dr Lurve & The Syringe of Shame TONIGHT at the Coolum Civic Centre

💉💉💉💉💉💉💉💉💉💉

This originally-written script was a big success in WA and now the writers/directors Lisa and Kevin Blair have refreshed the script and added in plenty of Sunshine Coast humour to delight local audiences.

A great night out is guaranteed with tables of 8 (or purchase individual seats) - you can bring your own drinks and nibbles and make a night (or afternoon) of it!
4 evening performances and 2 matinees to chose from - July 12, 13, 14, 19 & 20.

Book online at www.coolumtheatre.com.au or phone 5446 2500

Make a Night of It

Seating for the vast majority of our shows is tables of 8 (see here). Please note that you don’t have to book a whole table and we can’t add extra chairs).

You’re encouraged to bring nibbles & wine/beer (cups provided, no unmixed spirits please). We’re BYO only – there are a couple of bottle shops within easy walking distance and some great restaurants for pre-show dining.

All of our shows are, of course, live theatre and this means that we can’t rewind the action – therefore, popping that champagne cork/opening those crisps mid-show is a no-no. Please open your goodies before the action starts on stage.

Our shows are performed at the Coolum Civic Centre, Park Street, Coolum – click here for more information.
