RESCHEDULED – Girls On Tap

By

This performance has been rescheduled to Friday 8 October 2021. 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.

During the Second World War amd under occupation, the Finnish Composer, Sibelius wrote this anthemic, passionate and patriotic work – Finlandia. His masterpiece, and a terrific work to complete the first half of the program.
How do you paint Australia’s vast landscape, its changing seasons, its ancient indigenous culture, in musical sounds? In Kakadu, Peter Sculthorpe does just this.
Benjamin Britten’s Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra spotlights each of the instrumental groups before the full orchestra comes together for a rousing finale. In a special performance, the work will be narrated by Marian Arnold.

Animal Farm

By

Created by shake & stir theatre co
Animal Farm, one of the most enduring political commentaries returns in a multi-award winning, critically-acclaimed theatre production. George Orwell’s intensely powerful fairy tale allegorizes and satirizes communist governments while illustrating with stunning simplicity how greed and power corrupts with devastating consequences to all who yield.
Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm. The pigs have assumed control and all the animals, fueled by enthusiastic camaraderie and guided by a set of self-imposed rules, are promised a better life free from the self-serving greed of humans.
However, it is not long until the rules that promised equality and freedom become the shackles that bind the animals once again.
Created by shake & stir and directed by Michael Futcher, Animal Farm promises to be one of the most shocking, relevant and wickedly funny theatre events of 2020.
