The Ballad of Penelope and Marlin is a comical look at life in the future, where robot bees tend to your needs and love begins with an upgrade.


Marlin is the last in a long line of fishermen. With no fish left in the oceans, he reluctantly enters Harmony Hive and meets Penelope, a future star, who disrupts the hive with a start up like no other.


This uniquely Great Southern musical is about hope, desire and a hive that is home to humans and the last living bee.


Created exclusively by Artists from the Great Southern Region, this promises to be a great night out at the Albany Town Hall
