Sweet Charity

See it. That’s all I can really say.

This show is gritty, modern and intimate – if you are familiar with Sweet Charity, these are not words you would expect, but the way Dean Bryant has directed this brilliant little show is so fantastic, you would be forgiven for thinking this is exactly how the show was originally written.
Verity Hunt-Ballard nails the sunny personally of the eternally unlucky dance hall hostess, living a life she is desperate to leave behind, but all escape routes come up empty.

It’s a joy to see. A cast that just buzzes with personality, a small, sharp band that have the Nancy Hayes rocking, genius costumes, brilliant choreography and a very very clever set, this show is simply fantastic. Don’t miss it.

Band of Magicians

Off to Paramatta today to see four of the worlds coolest young magicians. They did not disappoint. Truly incredible tricks, teamed with genuinely funny comedy, these guys had the audience gasping at every turn.

Using both close up magic (expanded on a large screen with live cameras) and jaw-dropping large-scale illusions, James Galea (Aus), Justin Willman, Nate Staniforth and Justin Flom (USA) showcased some amazing talents in this world premiere. Apparently it will continue to tour the world, so be sure to keep an eye out for it!
