The Island of Doctor Moron screened at the Dendy Opera Quays early 2016. It was sold-out 2 weeks in advance and received a rapturous standing ovation at its conclusion.

This show has that rare ‘X Factor’ which creates a tangible ‘buzz’ of excitement and delight from the audience in the foyer after the show. I know, because I was part of it. I haven’t seen many shows do that in my 40 years in the theatre industry. Doctor Moron is sure to go far beyond our shores, bringing the same happiness to audiences all over the world.

The Island of Doctor Moron gives audiences everything they desire in a musical. The music especially drives the show with relentless and irresistible energy. This combined with the fact that many of the characters are primal natives and mutated animal-human creatures allows an opportunity for some of the most creative choreography I have seen.

Being the audio engineer for The Island of Doctor Moron has been one of the highlights of my 23 years in the music industry. The music in this show is amazing. It was impossible to be unmoved by the rhythms and the energy. The songs all stand alone as powerful pieces which the audiences were already singing as they left the theatre!

There’s a rock musical on at the moment called The Island of Doctor Moron… the singing and dancing is unbelievable.
— Alan Jones - (Australia's most popular talkback presenter - 2GB)
I saw the show seven times. I was utterly captivated by it. It is so wonderfully different from any other musical I have seen for decades. It has all the hallmarks of becoming an international hit.
— Norman Scott – Ret’d- Formerly with Her Majesties Theatre
The music in this show is different from most musicals where the songs are part of the dialogue or libretto and their melodies and rhythms often get lost in the narrative. In Doctor Moron, the songs stand alone. Every song is a knock-out. They drive the show with incredible energy. The percussion in many of the songs is just relentless. It blows the audience away.

I loved the whole concept of The Island of Doctor Moron. It gave audiences a completely different theatrical experience. Its appeal is to mainstream audiences who want a musical to provide a vehicle of delightful escapism. I had numerous listeners call in to rave about the show. This in itself was a rare if not unique occurrence
— Grant Goldman (Broadcaster - 2SM Super Network Radio)
The Island of Doctor Moron is an out-of-this-world visual feast cleverly crafted to excite and entertain audiences of all ages. Music is a key driving force of this fantasy musical – presenting an all-original, infectious soundtrack.
— Chris Duncan – DanceLife Magazine
Doctor Moron creators Chris and Lyn Dockrill, have crammed so much into the fun storyline and musical score - drama, adventure, sexual tension, a bunch of sub-plots, vibrant sets and lighting, colourful costumes plus a rockin’ soundtrack - that audience detachment is just not an option.
