On Friday October 21st, Magnormos presented OzMade Musicals 2005 - 'On The Drawing Board' - a presentation of NEW Australian music theatre currently in development.

Four NEW works were presented, each accepted from a nationwide submission process. Hosted by the hilarious Jan van de Stool (Queenie van de Zandt), the evening was punctuated with special 'OzMade Flashbacks' featuring works that have been presented in previous OzMade Musicals, including Metro Street (recipient of the 2004 Pratt Prize for Music Theatre), All Het Up (the second Australian work accepted into the New York Music Theatre Festival), Rebecca-the Musical, Water Into Wine, and Paris.

An exciting array of performance talent was also on display including John O'May (Mamma Mia!), Robert Grubb (Galipoli, We Will Rock You) Kellie Rode (Mamma Mia!), Kristin Keam (Minefields and Miniskirts), and Matthew Robinson (Saturday Night), plus many, many, more.

OzMade Musicals 2005 also hosted the launch of the 'A Bunch of Ratbags' soundtrack CD, featuring the cast from the recent successful Magnormos Music Theatre Readings Program season.
