Written by Bill Farr this production recreates the dramatic events of Judy Garland's tour of Australia in 1964. From wowing audiences and gaining rave reviews for her Sydney performance to the ignominy of her Melbourne performances we witness the decline of a great star. Produced by Skunkworks Productions this project has been specially developed for the unique talents of Liane Keegan. Also starring Alistair Frearson. This show is played for 3 nights only at the Athenaeum Theatre, in July 2019.
Skunkworks Productions recently completed a recording session with the wonderful Danielle Matthews. Currently in post production this project recorded a version of "The Prayer" sung by Danielle Matthews and Claire Lyon with the Skunkworks Melbourne Ensemble. We also recorded a music video of Danielle singing three numbers from her fabulous Shirley Bassey show. Stay tuned for more information on when these recordings will be released.

In 2019 Skunkworks established the Melbourne Ensemble to display the talents of our most outstanding local musicians. The ensemble is available for gigs and special occasions. The ensemble also provided the music tracks for our recent recording with Daniel Matthews.
The ensemble is directed by our own Phillipa Edwards.
Created by our own Phillipa Edwards and taken on tour to Europe and the UK in November 2018 by the Footscray-Yarraville City Band, this show commemorates the courage and sacrifice of our original Anzacs. The tour and show was a great success and Skunkworks is looking to produce the show again in 2020.
