About the Show
Featuring Eugene, a geeky kid with big dreams and an even bigger heart, this musical explores the wistful hopes of a seemingly overlooked high school boy in an 80s pop culture themed musical that simply bursts with energy. With a repertoire of original songs (including the very popular Go Eugenius!), fun and catchy dance routines by choreographer Aaron Renfree, and the inimitable Liam Forde as Eugene, Eugenius! is one of those musicals you’ll be singing along to even after it’s over.
Even his name, Eugene, sounds geeky – not only is he bullied at school, but he’s a complete joke to the cool kids. He is, however, completely fascinated by comic books, and dreams that his character, ‘Tough Man’, will become famous one day. Eugene finally gets his big break when he wins a contest, and is whisked away into the world of cinema and adventure at Hollywood to make a film about his character. What will Eugene make of this opportunity? When the going gets tough, will Eugene still be able to see his dream come true? Watch to find out!
Ever since its first run, Eugenius! has been an incredible success and has garnered rave reviews.
“Silly but amiable, Eugenius! is bursting with 80s pop culture references and boasts infectiously poppy pastiche songs.”
– The Guardian
“The superhero musical, driven by a catchy Eighties-inspired score, which includes Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame amusingly voicing a robot, will plant a smile of your face.”
