Cricket the Musical

The Harbour Agency
Special Guests:

Denis Carnahan is taking his hilarious one man cult hit musical comedy show Cricket The Musical on its first National Tour in 2025. Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra - 5 cities for 2025.

The 2024/25 cricket season has been filled with controversy and pantomime, from the American World Cup to the touring Indians, and the still fresh drama of Bazball, the Wandering Bairstow, and alleged Lords going feral. So Australia’s hardest working musical sports satirist uses his unique satirical spin to investigate this season, along with the game’s history of treachery, villainy, facial hair, and illegal abrasives.

For almost two decades, Carnahan has been producing songs and parodies about the many colourful characters and controversies Australian Sport produces. They go to air weekly on ABC Grandstand, and have previously featured on The Footy Show, Fox Sports, Triple M and many more. His songs about Stuart Broad’s sportsmanship, MCC selection policies, and Mitchell Johnson’s moustache and other sports have had millions of hits on YouTube.

Prepare yourself to boo the villains and cheer the heroes as Cricket The Musical brings the songs to life on stage, with videos, sketches and caricatures celebrating the many controversies of this summer’s matches.
