Experience West End to Broadway – The Tony’s –
The new exciting new season features incredible solo, duet and ensemble renditions of show stoppers from the Tony Award winning musicals from its inception in 1947 to the show stoppers of today!
UOC Director Bruce Edwards said he launched West End to Broadway in 2016 in the 150-year-old Spring Hill Reservoir, which garnered a wonderful response from audiences and they are now up to Volume 6.
“Volume 6 – The Tonys – we have grouped all of the Musicals that have won Best Musical of the Year at The Tony Awards in each decade from the 40’s to toady then selected just three, or so, to represent that decade. These will be performed in the round, 6 meters underground in Brisbane’s Underground Opera House, The Spring Hill Reservoir”. said Mr Edwards
“It is quite a challenge, each time, to come up with a new show that will make our audience laugh, cry and cheer. Each show is unique and showcases the world class voices and theatricality of our incredible performers”.
A stellar cast includes Mr Oliver Samson, Mr Lionel Theunissen, with our lovely ladies Ms Pia Frangiosa and Ms Ashleigh Denning accompanied by our incredible pianist Mr Mark Connors.
Get ready for what is set to be an exquisite West End to Broadway season!
What they say
Underground Opera’s West End to Broadway satisfied on many levels, mixing songs from a clutch of popular and art-house musicals.
- Stage Whispers
The selection of numbers were unashamedly dramatic and romantic, and this is where musical theatre excels, in pulling the heart strings with angst and true love.- Scenestr
This is without doubt the best kept secret performance space in Brisbane. Six metres underground, a stage has been constructed in the centre of four wings of the historic reservoir.

The Spring Hill Reservoir
The Spring Hill Reservoir is located just behind Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, on Wickham Terrace (look for the Old Tower Mill!).
The Spring Hill Reservoir is architecturally astonishing. Six metres underground, the reservoir is divided into 15 sections by headwalls, with each section joined by hand-lain brick archways, which have been standing for 140 years.
The acoustics are sensational, allowing our performers’ voices to resonate throughout the venue, with each audience member enjoying the beautifully stunning sound that is created, no matter where they are seated.
A stage has been built at the centre of four wings and the intimacy of the reservoir breaks down the barriers between the audience and the performers.
Please note: Concerts are suitable for patrons of all ages who are fit and able to descend stairs into the stunning Spring Hill Reservoir performance space.
