1927

By

From the golden era for Australian rock bands, to reinvigorating fans today, 1927 have been entertaining audiences for 30 years and have stood the test of time as icons of the Australian music scene.
With a debut album that became a smashing success that went five times platinum, stayed in the ARIA chart for 46 weeks, selling an excess of 400,000 copies and winning Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Awards for best debut single and album, 1927 became a household name in Australia overnight. The album was …. ish.  Ian McFarlane in his opus The Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop, put it perfectly when he wrote “…. ish is brimful of stirring, stately rock anthems.”
It is one of the top 10 most successful debut albums for an Australian artist, to multiple ARIA awards, a multi-platinum second album, chart success in Europe and America.
1927 live is a show not to be missed.

By A Thread

One Fell Swoop presents By A Thread
Long spools of white rope run through pulley sheaves and wrap around bodies, explicitly connecting the artists’ movements above and off the ground. Like the booms and sheets of a sailing ship the performers are hoisted and swung by one another to create striking tableaux and breath-taking dynamics. The actions of one acrobat affect and implicate the movements of others in a precise negotiation of cause and effect.
By a Thread offers rich visuals of inventive aerial acrobatics from some of Australia’s best emerging circus artists. With intense training in a breadth of contemporary circus disciplines, the performers have pooled their knowledge and skills, and then exploded the traditional boundaries of these disciplines to create a show where classic techniques are used in expansive ways.

Jason Owens sing John Denver

By

Due to popular demand, Aussie country music artist Jason Owen will be returning in 2021 with his acclaimed show Jason Owen Sings John Denver.

Performing in intimate settings around the nation, Jason will be singing many of Denver’s most loved songs from his fourth album Jason Owen Sings John Denver: the 20th Anniversary. When the album was released in 2017 to mark 20 years since Denver’s passing, it became an instant smash hit, going straight to number one on the Australian iTunes Country music chart.

With a Golden Guitar and three Country Music Channel (CMC) Award nominations to his name in categories including New Oz Artist of the Year and Male Artist of the Year, Jason has firmly made his mark on Australian music. A national tour with country music darling Amber Lawrence, a collaboration with iconic Indigenous entertainer Christine Anu on his single Proud and a successful 2019 tour The Power of Love have been just some of his many career highlights.

Pete The Sheep

By

Adapted by Monkey Baa in 2014 from the picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley, with foot-tapping music and lyrics by Phil Scott and comedic direction by Jonathan Biggins, Pete the

Sheep is a lively and mischievous award-winning musical for young audiences and their adults.

Shaun isn’t like the other Shearers in Shaggy Gully… he’d rather be styling than shearing and instead of ‘sheep-dog’, he has a ‘sheep-sheep’ named Pete. After being rejected by the shearers and

their dogs, Shaun and Pete set up their own Shearing Salon in town and before long word is out and they are inundated with woolly clients and maybe a Ringer or two!

This hilarious show, imaginatively told by four performers playing shearers, dogs and sheep explores the challenges and rewards of being an individual and will be a lasting tribute to honoring your own spirit and strength, whilst working with the flock.
