Previews from 28 May, 2013 and opening 15 June.

KING KONG is the new epic music theatre event from Global Creatures, the makers of the international hits Walking With Dinosaurs - The Arena Spectacular (WWD) and How To Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular (HTTYD).

Featuring a cast of 49 actors, singers, dancers, circus performers and puppeteers; a crew of 76; and arguably the most technologically advanced puppet in the world - a one-tonne, six-metre giant silverback - KING KONG will be an epic and dazzlingly original theatrical experience.

The show includes new and existing songs from some of the world’s best contemporary artists, including Robert Del Naja from Massive Attack, Sarah McLachlan, Justice, Guy Garvey from Elbow and The Avalanches.

Promising to be one of the major theatrical events in Australia's 2013 calendar, KING KONG is proudly supported by the State Government of Victoria and Tourism Victoria. Because of the sheer scale of the production it will not tour to other states or to New Zealand. It is expected that the Regent Theatre in Collins Street will become one of the city's major tourist attractions as visitors travel to Melbourne to experience KING KONG live on stage.
