Looking forward to our next Mornings on the Terrace show CRAZY DAYS AND LAZY DAYS by Jenny Davis on Thursday 28th Oct at Burt Hall, 38 St Georges Tce, Perth! 

In spring the sap rises and the world comes out to play. A young cast of musical theatre graduates bring us songs to stir the blood and make mayhem, together with songs to dream away a sunny afternoon. Lucy Fraser and Marcus Gadd delight us with old favourites and modern greats. Together with the piano maestro, Craig Skelton, they bring us dramatic, comic and tender songs from recent musicals as well as plenty of classic numbers.

THEATRE 180 celebrates a vibrant young cast, both inspired by the greats of the past and excited about new musicals from around the world. What turns the head of a young person in spring? Why love, of course, together with all its hopes, dramas, sorrows and joys.

THEATRE 180 invites you to come with us and catch a little Spring Fever, as Lucy and Marcus dance their way through CRAZY DAYS and LAZY DAYS!

Kalgoorlie:  Not long until we arrive in the Goldfields bringing with us SYDNEY II: Lost and Found. Orana Cinemas Kalgoorlie this weekend - 18 & 19 September 

This unique live theatre performance in a cinema setting is like nothing you've seen before!

So, is it a movie?  No, but it does use the incredible aesthetics of a cinema screen to provide the magnificent backdrops to each scene, for the live cast of 3 actors to perform in front of. It's live theatre in a cinema setting! It's a very unique experience that has received rave reviews and sold out shows.

This compelling and true story of Australia's greatest naval disaster is a story for all generations and coupled with seeing live theatre in a non-traditional theatre venue, is a very special experience.
