Secure your Family Pass (2 adults & 2 children 13-17 years) for just $88 and save $50!
Children 0-12 are free! (must have a ticket).

Lindy Hume’s critically acclaimed production hits the road, giving a Cairns audience the opportunity to experience this hilarious Opera, the weird and wonderful world of Victoriana and its colourful bunch of comic characters.

Shy and law-abiding farmer, Robin Oakapple, is working up the courage to ask the beautiful Rose Maybud to marry him. But he has a dark secret; he is the heir to a terrible curse befalling all Baronets of Ruddigore and has been living in disguise to escape his fate.

When the truth is discovered, Robin is bound to obey the family curse that dictates he must commit a dastardly crime every day – or face a torturous death. Under these difficult circumstances can he win back Rose and lead the virtuous life he craves?

Jump into a sepia-tinted gothic horror story where good and evil go hilariously hand in hand in a seaside village full of bridesmaids and a haunted house whose ancestral gallery comes alive at the Ghosts’ High Noon.

Jam packed with musical gems such as the ‘Matter’ trio and Rose’s ‘Etiquette’ song, Ruddigore, or The Witch’s Curse! will tour with the same cast members that had Brisbane audiences standing on their feet and laughing out loud – Bryan Probets, Christine Johnston, Kanen Breen, Jason Barry-Smith, Roxane Hislop and Natalie Christie Peluso as Rose Maybud.

Performance usage

Munro Martin Parklands is Cairns’ newest premier community gathering place, complete with an outdoor performance space.  Due to the residential nature, the specific nature of the stage and the visibility the stage offers the audience, this venue is best suited to high end performing arts events.

Munro Martin Park is a space dedicated to curated events to provide culturally enriching experiences for the Cairns community. Due to its niche program, venue hire availability is limited and dependent on assessment by management to ensure performances are suitable for a curated space.

Embrace - public art sculpture

Woopen Creek based sculptor, Braham Stevens, designed the piece to withstand the harsh tropical conditions and maintain a 'timeless' character. Embrace is a nine-metre tall sculpture, made from laser-cut, heavy gauge steel and is part of a linking public artwork project which connects the Munro Martin Parklands with the James Cook University Campus. The sculpture represents the intricate relationships, cycles and connections between geology, ecology, man, time and place.
