The Three Sisters | Free Rain Theatre Company

This is a thoughtful play for a thoughtful audience, so if you’re in the mood for a bit of light entertainment you may leave the performance slightly drained.

The Role Model

Canberra writer Bruce Hoogendoorn’s tale of sport, scandal and ‘media answers’ is a winner, however it does take a little while to warm up.

La Bohème | SERTO/Melbourne Opera

The great thing about Puccini’s opera is that it delivers its love and tragedy with plenty of humour, beautifully drawn characters and music that’s well worth the price of admission.

The Arrival | Spare Parts Puppet Theatre

Grab the kids, or anyone who’s free for that matter, and get along to see The Arrival. It could be the highlight of your week.

Three Nights at the Bleeding Heart

If only The Bleeding Heart were a permanent venue. A subterranean political satire bar would surely be welcome in Canberra – a city where politicians could provide it with no end of material.

Jeff Lang

Lang’s relaxed attitude only adds to the effect when he unleashes one of his guitar solos, displaying power and accuracy more reminiscent of a classical virtuoso than a laid-back folk singer.

Busting Out! | AG Productions

If you like Tupperware parties with the gals, sipping some Chardy and having a laugh at one’s wobbly bits, then you’ll love the comedy skit-set of Busting Out.

The Shape of Things | Free Rain Theatre Company

I can’t tell you what happens at the end of this play, but even if this weren’t such a strong production, the twist would be worth the price of admission.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This long-awaited show delivers all you can expect and is a veritable feast for the senses! As much fun as a Wonka Fudgie Wudgie (and as whimsical as a Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight).

Every Brilliant Thing | Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA

Performed in-the-round, by marvellously talented Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is a work of life affirming humour.

Eastern Promises | Opera Queensland

Before this concert began, Patrick Nolan, the artistic director of Opera Queensland, told us that we were in for a treat. But it was much more than that.
