A celebration of all things administration, Reception: The Musical tells the story of a receptionist who finds joy in the manic world of customer service, stationery orders and thinking on your swivel chair. Inspired by true stories from the front desk, this original cabaret comedy is a must-see for office workers and theatre lovers everywhere!

Written by two-time Green Room Award nominated writer/performer Bethany Simons and leading Melbourne composer Peter de Jager, this uplifting and hilarious production features a toe-tapping original score. Songs include My Name is Bethany (Not Stephanie), Do You Have Sticky Tape, I Can’t Help But Help, They Ring My Bell and many more.
