A Day in the Death of Joe Egg
Without doubt it is a beautifully crafted work wonderfully staged and directed in this production.

From Door To Door
The Jewish mother has somewhat become a stereotype in entertainment. The portrayal of the overbearing matriarch, who steadfastly drills in to her offspring the crucial importance of retaining the Jewish tradition, has been widely represented in literature, film and theatre.

All My Sons
All My Sons is a good example of traditional, well-made drama, based on ideas of responsibility and integrity, and a plot both deeply considered and soundly constructed.

Con's Spire
It seems no-one loves a conspiracy more than Errol Bray. His long Australian theatrical career has evidently led him to a place of cheerful cynicism about the state of our world.

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.

Laughing At Gravity
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.
