A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM

Tuesday, 14 May 2024 7:30pm Shakespeare’s classic comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is reawakened in this breathless production brimming with magic, mirth and mayhem.  Love is in the air in Athens – and it’s contagious. Besides the royal wedding, which is just days away, there are young lovers dreaming of enchanted futures together. Hermia and Lysander are besotted with one another, while Helena adores Demetrius. The only snag is that Demetrius loves Hermia – and he’s got Hermia’s father on his side. So nobody is happy. (Shakespeare wasn’t kidding when he said the course of true love never did run smooth.) Determined to be together, Hermia and Lysander meet in a moonlit forest with plans to elope. Following hot on their heels is Demetrius, who in turn is pursued by a lovelorn Helena. But the young lovers are not alone in the forest. Nick Bottom and his hapless bunch of tradies have gathered to rehearse a play to be performed at the royal wedding. And, hidden from human eyes, a mischievous sprinkling of faeries are also in the forest that night. The three worlds collide in an explosion of comic confusion that throws the future of all the lovers into jeopardy. This production is quick as a shadow. Fast, funny and family-friendly, this is A Midsummer Night’s Dream reimagined.

A group of incredibly talented musicians, who bring not only the musical genius of Queen to life on stage but embody the flamboyance and unique personalities of Freddie and the band.

With costumes, lights and the musicianship to match, this group will captivate you with the same magic as when Fleetwood Mac members come together on stage. Not just competent performers and musicians but huge fans of Fleetwood Mac. The Fleetwood Pac were formed at a time when the world needed nostalgic comfort. Taking you back to a simpler time, The Fleetwood Pac pay tribute to their idols with authenticity and respect. The Pac members have been connected for many years through their work as musicians and music teachers. Their common interest in Fleetwood Mac made this tribute act an essential project for them to undertake. However, even they were surprised by how easily they complimented each other with this material. From the first rehearsal, it was obvious The Fleetwood Pac were destined for great things. The Pac features all 3 singers; Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie with their sound, look and energy. Mick’s hypnotic grooves and John’s funky bass lines complete this ultimate tribute show. What sets this act apart is the attention to detail. This show has been transcribed note for note with the melody as Fleetwood Mac recorded, the harmonies where they belong and the toms back-to-front on the drums. Fans of Fleetwood Mac will recognise the details in this show.

Thursday, 18 April 2024 7:30pm There is barely a bakery in regional Australia, that hasn’t had one of Damian Callinan’s show posters blu-tacked to its window. In Hall Stories, the three time Melbourne Comedy Festival Best Show nominee and creator of the hit Netflix film The Merger, combines his skills as a storyteller, stand-up and character actor, to pull back the curtain on his own tour stories and examine the quirks, traditions and characters of rural Australian halls. In this particular show, Damian will also be spending time with the local community to delve into the the history & characters of the Harston Hall, as well as examining its origins in the POW and internment camp story of the district.

"a down-to-earth piece that deserves the widest possible audience”– Chris Boyd What do you do when you can’t look away? In the quiet streets of an ordinary suburb, the fence between two neighbouring houses comes down. Where once there was a clear separation between you and the couple next door, now there’s only a dirt line and human decency keeping prying eyes out of each other’s backyards. Except you’ve noticed they have a new baby and that she keeps locking herself out. And then there are the sounds late at night that have become impossible not to hear. Should you say something, do something? But is it what you think it is? And is it really your place to get involved? Shortlisted for the 2022 Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Award, The Fence is a scintillating solo work about privacy, bravery, and testimony by acclaimed playwright Fleur Murphy (Nothing, Hearth). Performed by Louisa Mignone (Death of a Salesman, Wentworth, The Twelve), this gripping new play will lead you through the streets we know, shining a light on the violence found in our own backyards.

Tuesday, 22 October 2024 7:30pm Melbourne Chamber Orchestra's Artistic Director Sophie Rowell joins QSO Chief Conductor Umberto Clerici for a wonderful program that sees the MSO performing music of child prodigy Felix Mendelssohn alongside that of the (then) living legend he looked up to: the great Ludwig van Beethoven. Program Beethoven Violin ConcertoMendelssohn Symphony No.3 Scottish ArtistsMelbourne Symphony OrchestraUmberto Clerici conductorSophie Rowell violin The terrifying tale of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto is the manifestation of many-a-musician’s nightmares. If the fact that it was written in a just a few rushed weeks wasn’t bad enough, the violinist engaged for the premiere was so unprepared that he was forced to sight-read much of it during the concert. With its lyrical lines and effervescent display of the violin’s capabilities, however, Beethoven’s only work for violin and orchestra (thankfully) survived its origin story, and is now considered one of the best in the repertoire. Inspired by the ruins of the Palace of Holyrood, Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony evokes a musical restoration of the castle and its stories of love, war, betrayal, and murder. Bursting with intrigue, this symphony paints a sonic picture of pale Scottish light casting shadows on centuries-old, moss-covered stone.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM

Tuesday, 14 May 2024 7:30pm Shakespeare’s classic comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is reawakened in this breathless production brimming with magic, mirth and mayhem.  Love is in the air in Athens – and it’s contagious. Besides the royal wedding, which is just days away, there are young lovers dreaming of enchanted futures together. Hermia and Lysander are besotted with one another, while Helena adores Demetrius. The only snag is that Demetrius loves Hermia – and he’s got Hermia’s father on his side. So nobody is happy. (Shakespeare wasn’t kidding when he said the course of true love never did run smooth.) Determined to be together, Hermia and Lysander meet in a moonlit forest with plans to elope. Following hot on their heels is Demetrius, who in turn is pursued by a lovelorn Helena. But the young lovers are not alone in the forest. Nick Bottom and his hapless bunch of tradies have gathered to rehearse a play to be performed at the royal wedding. And, hidden from human eyes, a mischievous sprinkling of faeries are also in the forest that night. The three worlds collide in an explosion of comic confusion that throws the future of all the lovers into jeopardy. This production is quick as a shadow. Fast, funny and family-friendly, this is A Midsummer Night’s Dream reimagined.

"a down-to-earth piece that deserves the widest possible audience”– Chris Boyd What do you do when you can’t look away? In the quiet streets of an ordinary suburb, the fence between two neighbouring houses comes down. Where once there was a clear separation between you and the couple next door, now there’s only a dirt line and human decency keeping prying eyes out of each other’s backyards. Except you’ve noticed they have a new baby and that she keeps locking herself out. And then there are the sounds late at night that have become impossible not to hear. Should you say something, do something? But is it what you think it is? And is it really your place to get involved? Shortlisted for the 2022 Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Award, The Fence is a scintillating solo work about privacy, bravery, and testimony by acclaimed playwright Fleur Murphy (Nothing, Hearth). Performed by Louisa Mignone (Death of a Salesman, Wentworth, The Twelve), this gripping new play will lead you through the streets we know, shining a light on the violence found in our own backyards.

Tuesday, 22 October 2024 7:30pm Melbourne Chamber Orchestra's Artistic Director Sophie Rowell joins QSO Chief Conductor Umberto Clerici for a wonderful program that sees the MSO performing music of child prodigy Felix Mendelssohn alongside that of the (then) living legend he looked up to: the great Ludwig van Beethoven. Program Beethoven Violin ConcertoMendelssohn Symphony No.3 Scottish ArtistsMelbourne Symphony OrchestraUmberto Clerici conductorSophie Rowell violin The terrifying tale of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto is the manifestation of many-a-musician’s nightmares. If the fact that it was written in a just a few rushed weeks wasn’t bad enough, the violinist engaged for the premiere was so unprepared that he was forced to sight-read much of it during the concert. With its lyrical lines and effervescent display of the violin’s capabilities, however, Beethoven’s only work for violin and orchestra (thankfully) survived its origin story, and is now considered one of the best in the repertoire. Inspired by the ruins of the Palace of Holyrood, Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony evokes a musical restoration of the castle and its stories of love, war, betrayal, and murder. Bursting with intrigue, this symphony paints a sonic picture of pale Scottish light casting shadows on centuries-old, moss-covered stone.
