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!

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.
