The Ballad of Penelope and Marlin 2021

Updated: Mar 20

The Ballad of Penelope and Marlin – a Uniquely Great Southern Musical at the Town Hall

The Ballad of Penelope and Marlin was 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 entered Harmony Hive and met Penelope, a future star, who disrupted the hive with a start up like no other.

This uniquely Great Southern musical was 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 and including live musical performances The Ballad of Penelope and Marlin was a great night out at the Albany Town Hall.
