Sydney Comedy Festival presents Schapelle, Schapelle! – The Musical! This fast pace musical comedy is a satirical exploration of Australia's weakness for media sensationalism, as told through Australia's favourite boogie-boarding ex-con.
Fictionalised, but capturing key events, Schapelle, Schapelle! tells a story of exploitation, opportunism, loneliness and redemption - all spun together with a rollicking down-to-earth musical score.
