“It’s great that we have the opportunity to take the show to the people, in areas around the country, that we may not have otherwise been able to get to with some of the bigger productions we perform in’ says Marina.  ‘With the Up Close & Personal show, it’s like you’re in our living room and we’re in yours, singing both your and our favourite songs with a few funny career stories thrown in’, says David.

Girls On Tap

By

This performance has been rescheduled from 26 September 2020. Existing tickets have been transferred to new date. Patrons are entitled to a full refund if this date does not suit.

Kym Halpin TheatricHals and Well Done Creative Pty Ltd presents Girls On Tap
A high energy, theatrical tap show celebrating women and female empowerment throughout the ages. The ladies of Girls On Tap multi-task (of course) live on stage – whether they are dancing, singing, tapping and playing the piano at the same time or using their daily hair care routine to tap out fun rhythms with a can of hair spray and a hair brush.
Girls On Tap takes a look at female life both good and bad. Legacy and sisterhood vs betrayal by our female counterparts, stereotyping and objectification by the media. It’s not all noise and backstabbing though. We are making a statement, but we’re having a lot of fun doing it. Gershwin to Girl Power and everything in between. There’s a powerful, live rock version of Rolling in the Deep, a fierce Film Noir style jazz routine reminiscent of Golden Era classics like Band Wagon and Singing in the Rain, a tongue-in-cheek take on the stereotypical 1950s housewife, and so much more. A little bit of pop, rock and jazz: Girls On Tap is sure to appeal to people of all ages.
Fabulous, female and guaranteed to entertain.

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.

By A Thread

By

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.

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.

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.
