Cosi DoMaur Productions Location: Uniting Church Hall, Mount St. Burnie Map
DoMaur Cosi
Nowra’s vibrant play is set inside a psychiatric institution in 1971. Lewis, a young director, takes on the task of mounting a production of Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte in the burnt-out theatre. He becomes emotionally involved with his patients-cum-actors as his operatic production lurches forward and anti-Vietnam protests rage outside.

First produced in 1992, COSI has become one of the most successful Australian plays produced in the last two decades.

A terrific play about madness, illusion, sanity… and theatre.

Quartet Ulverstone Repertory Theatre Society Location: Leven Theatre, Ulverstone Map Quartet - Ulverstone Rep
"Quartet" is a beautiful and delightful play that is both funny and touching. It is full of wicked and saucy humour about growing old and about art. It is a play of hope and confidence for people who in their retirement fear they may no longer have much to offer. It is a play that shows that old people still have a zest for life and still have the same desires, needs and worries as they did when they were young.To be directed by Emil Djakic. More info to follow.
Dates: Aug 19 - Sep 3

Tickets: TBC
To Book: Available June 27

Freaky Friday Devonport Choral Society Location: Devonport Paranaple Centre Map Devonport Choral Society - Freaky Friday

Try as they might, Katherine and Ellie just can’t seem to understand each other: Ellie wants her mum to stop trying to change her, while Katherine wants her daughter to be the best version of herself that she can be. On a fateful Friday, the day before Katherine’s wedding, something magical occurs when mother and daughter swap bodies. Now, both will have to?literally?spend a day walking in each other’s shoes, learning about each other and the struggles each goes through and forging a new mother-daughter relationship in this hilarious, energetic, and moving musical comedy.

Freaky Friday is based on the beloved 1972 novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films. It features a book by Bridget Carpenter – the co-executive producer and writer on the beloved TV hits, Friday Night Lights and Parenthood – and music and lyrics by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey – the Pulitzer Prize-winning composers of Next to Normal and If/Then.

MAY 12 - 28 (10 Performances) Tickets: TBC To Book: TBC
