As the headline act for Charles Sturt University’s annual “Sprung Festival” – a two-week theatrical event – Schappelle, Schapelle is a sensation. This musical comedy about Schappelle Corby’s infamous Bali drug bust and subsequent 20-year prison term (that was eventually reduced to 9-years) provides a hilarious take on her family and the media frenzy that surrounded her.
This is not the first time that Corby’s life has been turned into a musical comedy. In 2014, the University of Sydney Union hosted Schappelle! The Musical. One might assume that this earlier production, staged at a sandstone institution, would overshadow any subsequent effort to cover the same terrain. But Charles Sturt’s Theatre/Media teachers and students have yet again proven that regional universities are centres of equally great talent, innovation and creativity.
