Last chance to see Cinderella

Pantomime is an old English theatrical tradition, involving lots of audience participation and characters inspired by the stock characters of 15th and 16th Century commedia del ‘arte. Men play key female roles in a panto – they are the “panto dames” – and in the case of BATS Theatre Co’s traditional staging of Cinderella, the Ugly Stepsisters are played by Dennis Coleman and Kennedy Fox. Catch the final performances of Cinderella today and tomorrow at 10am & 4pm. All tickets $12 – children under 4 years free. Bookings online batstheatre.com or call 5445 2515

The Making of The Great Lover

Love is very often a comedy, don’t you think? Local playwright, Jo Denver, has penned this new play, The Making of The Great Lover, about a gorgeous young Italian who rises to fame in the role of The Great Lover, in a film written by the wife of an English pig breeder. Directed by Jo Denver and Michelle Connelly, this is a deliciously decadent tale of exotic desire, opening at The Lind in time for Valentine’s Day. Bookings online lindlane.com.au or call 5441 1814

The other two groups receive $100 each. Spread the word and head on down to Grill’d Sunshine Plaza to show your support for Sunshine Coast Eisteddfod.
