‘Stranger Sings’ is the new parody musical coming to Melbourne

Stranger Sings

Be transported back to a place where times were simpler and hair was bigger with 'Stranger Sings! The Musical Parody'.

Full of pop culture references, the musical parody based on the hit Netflix show retells the story of Mike, Eleven, Dustin, Lucas and the rest of the gang in full, campy 80s glory. With singing monsters, nostalgic fashion, convoluted love triangles, teen angst and a synth-heavy soundtrack, this award-winning Off-Broadway musical is making its Australian debut at the Meat Market in November.
