RED RACING HOOD

Terrapin Puppet Theatre - Written by Sean Monro, directed by Sam Routledge

Terrapin reimagines everyone’s favourite characters from the famous fairytale into the small town of Grinalong.

When the new mayor announces the return of the local motor race, the Grinalong Classic, the whole town is excited. But the race will go through Tangled Woods, where a giant wolf is rumoured to live. With everything she knows and loves at stake, Red must convince her mechanically savvy Gran to let her compete and overcome her own fears in the process.

The story is inventively brought to life using slot car racing, with cameras situated around the circuit magnifying the action live onscreen, putting the audience in the driving seat as they follow Red on her adventure. Featuring wonderful performances, a high-energy soundtrack and the puppetry that has made Terrapin famous locally, nationally and internationally, Red Racing Hood is not to be missed.

SMALL NIGHT IN WITH LIOR

This is a chance to hear the acclaimed singer songwriter Lior in a manner harking back to archetypal ‘salon’ concerts; where both audience and performer share an evening enjoying the connection that only proximity can offer.

Lior burst on to the Australian music scene in 2005 with his stunning debut album - ‘Autumn Flow’. Recorded and released entirely independently, and spearheaded by ‘This Old Love’ and subsequent singles ‘Daniel’ and ‘Autumn Flow’, the album became one of the most successful independent debuts in Australian history.

A swag of accolades followed, amongst them three Aria nominations (including Best Male Artist), as well as Triple J’s prestigious ‘J Award’ nomination for Album of the Year. Subsequent releases ‘Corner of an Endless Road’, (2008) and ‘Tumbling into the Dawn’ (2010) were also a huge success, debuting at #2 on the Australian Albums chart and topping the Independent charts for several weeks, as well as earning the gifted songwriter a further three Aria nominations.

Lior is known for his dynamic and moving performances, and has earned a reputation as one of Australia’s finest live performers. He is part of a rare breed of artists that has achieved a great degree of success and critical acclaim, whilst maintaining an independence and individuality in their craft.

Don’t miss the chance to see him in this one-off intimate solo show. Supported by Domini Forster.

MACDETH

A funny, fake-bloody tale of greed and power.

Children / Families

A Shakespearian treat performed in an immediate and accessible style. A funny, cautionary tale that combines Shakespeare’s rich language with a healthy dose of invention and idiocy.

The side-splitting tale combines Shakespeare’s rich language with everyday English. It pulls no punches, leaving in all the murder and foul play; all the injustice and cruelty; all the horror of one man’s ambition gone horribly wrong... but in a fun way. This is Shakespeare unplugged and re-wired, performed with stupidity and skill!

Macdeth is the perfect show for audiences who love the classics with a twist.
