Lights Up Theatre Season
Like the filament of a light globe glowing intensely, we know our Lights Up 2015 season shines the light on a year of rich and varied performances. The 2015 selection has been carefully chosen to bring you extraordinary entertainment and wonderful performances.
In 2015 we will explore and celebrate our connection to the land and history through performances that resonate with us as Australians. Matthew Ryan’s new play Kelly dramatises the last night of the iconic bushranger in a gripping and tautly written piece. We are thrilled to include celebrated local musician Shane Howard in an intimate concert performance of his new album, Deeper South. Australia Day written and directed by comic genius, Jonathan Biggins, pokes fun at Australian traditions, local politics and sacred cows.
Miriam Margolyes, international star of stage and screen will grace our stage in her own flamboyant, theatrical celebration. Michael Veitch brings to life the heroics of the pilots of World War II in a moving and very personal account. Amity Dry (best known from “The Block”) delights in her own musical creation Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life.
We continue the family fun with a special pyjama performance of The 26 Storey Tree House and the return of 360 Allstars the exciting, amped up Urban Circus after rave reviews and sell out seasons in Europe and America.
We also welcome back some of our favourite performing arts companies and artists - Australian Chamber Orchestra 2, Bell Shakespeare as well as the delightful Bethany Simons and the irrepressibly comic Damian Callinan.
The 2015 selection has been carefully picked especially to have something for everyone and the chance to enjoy it right on your doorstep.
