YAH20 Repeat Attenders

About the film

Rating: CTC
Runtime: 80 mins
Director: Mark Dooley
For throngs of eager audiences around the world who seek refuge from the daily grind, there is simply nothing else quite like musical theatre. But what is a special occasion for many is an addiction for others – a way of life and, even more dangerous, an obsession.

Repeat Attenders follows Broadway’s superfans for whom one visit is never enough. Dedicating themselves to that moment when the lights drop and the show starts, Australian filmmaker Mark Dooley looks behind the curtain at these ‘repeat attenders’, exploring what makes their love of musical theatre such a defining aspect of the lives.

This is an eye-opening and spellbinding portrait of theatre fandom run amok.
