Perth Symphony Orchestra certainly knows how to put on a spectacular show. 

Every one of the eleven short plays were excellent. Their very different topics and interpretations made for a sizzling night of theatre.

To this critic, as to many Short+Sweet patrons, this programme of two peformances of 12 plays over the weekend of the 20 and 21 March was the most keenly anticipated of the programme. 

A small group of amateur actors, some professionals, no overarching theme for some ten minute plays. What could possibly go wrong?

After a trying 5 day lockdown it was a relief to be among the few who could revel in the sublimely silly A-Z of Dance.

Classical meets Cabaret is a somewhat bizarre concept especially to those of us familiar and fond of the extraordinary output of Stephen Sondheim.

The show was a clever concept, allowing even jazz newcomers to recognize songs from their youth or even sung by people their parent’s age.
