Theatre, dance and circus highlights 2023 part 4: Victoria

More dates for your performing arts diary.

Where has the time gone? It feels like only a couple of weeks ago that I set out to document the potential performing arts highlights of 2023 – and yet now we’re already in the dying days of February and autumn is (hopefully) just around the corner.

Frankly, the year has got away from me, other stories have taken precedence, and some of the shows I would have included in this article (had it been published in early February as originally planned) have already come and gone. Thankfully, we have reviews of The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven, Sunday, Nosferatu, Wittenoom and The Crocodile to compensate for my tardiness.
