Crazy is produced by Whirlwind Productions


Crazy is a Rock and Roll Theatre musical that explores the plight of Mirabelle, an ordinary woman, who when faced with a series of tragedies finds her mental state unravelling. She winds up in Ward 12, the mental facility in Invercargill.

There she meets a series of characters who all cope with their own struggle with mental illness, and unwittingly give her a better understanding of herself.

Crazy follows her path in and out of the labyrinth we call madness.


Crazy features music from Gin Wigmore, Sia, Arctic Monkeys, Roy Orbison, James Vincent McMorrow, Ryan Adams, Paloma Faith and other contemporary artists.

Whirlwind Productions is the home of Rock and Roll Theatre in Queenstown, and have been writing, directing and producing their own live productions since 2007, and don't intend to stop.

This season opens prior to NZ Theatre Month on 29 Aug
