“The biggest production we’ve ever staged” – Sydney Creators Launch Kickstarter for Huge Adults Only Superhero Show

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – [Oct ’23] – The Concourse Theatre will host the opening run of the brand new show MARVELOUS: A RISQUÉ PARODY in July and August 2024, a stage spectacle that is built for all avid superhero fans – with one catch: you must be over the age of 18 to attend.

“Marvelous: A Risqué Parody” is an adults-only stage production putting a brand new twist on Marvel Superheroes, bringing them to life in spectacular satirical fashion in a 2-hour show filled with professional dancers, vocalists, acrobats, high flying aerialists, unbelievable costumes, outrageously funny scenarios, and a little bit of raunchiness. The first look show trailer gives a sneaky insight into what you can expect when it hits the stage!

“We’re taking the piss, but we’re doing it with a heck of a lot of love,” says Samwise Holmes, Creator of the ambitious production. “You definitely don’t need to have seen the Avengers films to have an excellent time, but for those who have it will be something truly special.”

Samwise and co-producer Cynthia Guthrie, both huge Superhero fans, launched Action Reaction Entertainment in 2015 and have been producing a wide variety of events and shows together since. But when Samwise began building Marvelous in 2019, they knew they had hit on something special – before putting the project on pandemic-pause.

“It’s been a four-year journey to get here,” remarks Cynthia. “Now with the right experience, knowledge, and a dedicated production team, we’re ready to bring this production to life.”

Samwise, Cynthia, and the team behind Marvelous are seeking input from the community to fund the remainder of the production. A Kickstarter Campaign has been launched to achieve that goal, offering exclusive rewards to backers, and rare opportunities for you to peek behind the curtain of the production itself. 

“It’s exciting,” says Samwise, “and terrifying, all at once. But mostly we just can’t wait for everyone to see the insanity we’ve been creating.”
