‘Song Contest – FutureVision’ is a community engagement project, song-writing and performance competition, utilising the stage musical Song Contest – the Almost Eurovision Experience to encourage young people to engage experientially with a successful commercial theatre production. It also provides a platform for participants to contribute their own creative ideas to promote the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Song Contest is a loving, comedy, homage to The Eurovision Song Contest which can be best summarised as a cross between a concert and a sporting event. The inaugural production was held in Melbourne in April 2016 to critical acclaim.
“Why is this parody of a parody so ridiculously enjoyable? … best of all Song Contest takes full advantage of the live experience” The Australian
