Always Patsy Cline

Always...Patsy Cline is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer who died tragically at age 30 in a plane crash in 1963. The show is based on a true story about Cline’s friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, who befriended the star in l961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death.
The show’s title was inspired by Cline’s letters to Seger, which were consistently signed “Love ALWAYS... Patsy Cline.”
The musical play, complete with down home country humour, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes 27 of Patsy’s unforgettable hits such as Crazy, I Fall to Pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking After Midnight.
It stars Australian Country Music singing sensation Courtney Conway and popular stage star Mandi Lodge (Just The Ticket).

“Go to see Always...Patsy Cline to hear the memorable songs and you’ll discover a heartfelt story that will lift your spirits.” Chicago Critic

Otto & Astrid

Fans of Spinal Tap and Flight of the Conchords, say “Hallo” to your new favourite band! Utterly dysfunctional siblings Otto & Astrid are Berlin’s Prince and Princess of art rock and Europop.
They are Die Roten Punkte (The Red Dots), self proclaimed “Best Band in the World”! Orphaned as kids, the brother and sister duo found shelter in a Berlin squat and never rockin’ well looked back.
A lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving duo, Die Roten Punkte is a wild, rock ‘n’ roll ride, full of hilarious, truly catchy and award winning pop songs. Following sell out shows in Edinburgh, Montreal and Dublin, Otto & Astrid tour Australia with one of the most irreverent and funny gigs you are ever likely to see.

Another yarn from the master of madness, Paul Jennings

Stephen’s bra is starting to slip. His pantyhose are sagging. His knickers keep falling down. Oh, the shame of it. He stole a gizmo-and now it’s paying him back.
The Paul Jennings phenomenon began with the publication of Unreal in 1985. Since then, his stories have been devoured all around the world.
The whirling, twirling illuminating Gizmo keeps on putting Stephen in extra-ordinary situations! The energy packed performance includes great music and
sound, gadgets, physical storytelling and amazing visual effects.
“…The Gizmo is laugh a minute fun but with a great
message” - The Daily Advertiser

NCM production of The Gizmo. Written by Verity
Laughton. Adapted from the novel by Paul Jennings.

Waking Up Dead

How do you grieve for someone you shared a life with, when that life was a lie?

Inspired by the true story of the intriguing case of Herman Rockerfeller.
Waking Up Dead is a suspenseful production that explores the story of an ordinary woman whose husband disappears and is later found murdered.
Through the investigation of his death, it becomes clear that for most of their married life he conducted an elaborate secret life as a swinger. Following such shocking events, how does the woman go on with her life? If so much of her life and identity was built on secrets and half-truths, how does she know who she is? With the use of a giant drawing-board in a beautifully rendered, intimate atmosphere, the woman
recreates key memories of her lost relationship, grappling with the complex nature of love, identity and betrayal.
