The Messiah
This is a highly comic and eccentric re-telling of the Nativity story produced by an amateur theatre company of three! Be ready for some segues back and forth in time, visual and verbal comedy, a touch of opera and some impressive sound effects including kookaburras and possums!

Short and Sweet
Short & Sweet offers a good opportunity for theatre dramatists to have their work seen by the general public, to be validated as artists, to practice and grow in their craft.

Circus Oz is a rough, raw, feisty and cheeky show of brilliant Aussie talent which appeals to a multi-generational audience. Naughty enough to be a thrill for the parents and cute enough for the kids to screech with laughter - which they did.

Ground Elastic Sound
The group uses electronic and recorded, as well as live music, and gives some importance to visual design and staging. This wide-ranging perspective certainly lends considerable interest to its performances, but the results are mixed.

Swan Lake
Swan Lake is a bold, dynamic and clever interpretation. Bourne throws in elements of jazz, modern dance, Latin (including an energetic paso doble set to Tchaikovsky’s Spanish Dance) as well as ballroom and folk.
