About

WORLD PREMIERE

Meet Barbara and her band the Camp Dogs. Barbara’s been trying to make it in Sydney but maybe this just isn’t her town. In all the relentless demands of city life, where’s the sense of belonging she craves? It’s time to take a break with her cousin René.

With Ursula Yovich as Barbara and Casey Donovan as her redoubtable cousin, Barbara and the Camp Dogs is a rock-gig musical about love and home.

I heard Ursula and Casey sing these songs about three years ago. I get to see some fabulous things in my job but this was really electrifying. Urs doesn’t just have an incredible voice, she’s taken the idea of black rage and sung it out – and it’s so bold, so theatrical, so joyful. It’s Rock ‘n’ Roll, it’s politics and it’s very moving. – Eamon
