Yank!


Some stories didn’t make it into the history books…

Based on the true, hidden history of gay soldiers during World War II, and billed as the musical Rodgers and Hammerstein never wrote, this Australian premiere love story, explores what it means to fall in love and struggle to survive, in a time and place where the odds are stacked against you.

It’s 1943, when being gay was a crime. Young and scared, 18 year old Stu is drafted to fight in one of history’s deadliest wars. As Stu struggles through basic training, he falls for the handsome all-American Mitch…

When Stu meets Artie, an unapologetically queer reporter, he becomes immersed in a hidden world beneath the surface of the US Army.

Paying homage to 1940s Hollywood romance films, Yank! features a cast of 12 performers and a 7-piece live band, that will capture audience hearts and emotions.

This is a show not to be missed!

Join the writers of YANK! for a special Q + A on Saturday 06 July at 1pm.
