Fast Cars

Thu 23 March - Sat 25 March

General public on sale is Monday 16 January 2023 at 10am. BMEC 2023 Season Members have priority booking until then.

Word on the street is Brocky-loving battlers, the Byrnes of Barb’s Burgers, are going bankrupt!

Matriarch Barb dreams of cracking her PB walking the Mount; daughter Chez wants to be the King of the Mountain and son Tez wants to find true love.

When dodgy Mayor Belle Farquhar announces that locals can enter the great V8 race and win big bucks, the Byrnes are in! Who will win the podium, and at what cost?

Fast Cars is an hilarious musical about wannabe winners, family feuds and dirty deals staged at a special site at the base of the beating heart of Bathurst, Wahluu/Mt. Panorama.

Featuring live music + Fast Cars Drummers to get your engines revving and toes-tapping!

NB: The venue is off site at the very end of Research Station Drive.
