a Tribute to the girls!  

We'll be celebrating the life and the music of the wonderful Patsy Cline when CRAZY returns for it's 4th season.   Patsy died young - just aged 30 - but the legacy she left behind is quite extraordinary.  Audiences that have already seen the show last year have given it a huge [double] thumbs up!  That's happening on 23+25 March at The Buttai Barn 11am ...

Then in April and May we'll be paying tribute to the fabulous female hitmakers of the 1950s with the 50s Diva Fever  show.  You'll hear stories - and a bit of goss' - and songs that made the top of the charts during a decade when male singers/bands were "flavour of the decade".  These women had to be outstanding to top the blokes ....they were and they DID!   Some of the women we'll be celebrating are:  Peggy Lee, Julie London, Doris Day, Connie Francis, Eartha Kitt, Nina Simone, Judy Garland, Jo Stafford .....and more!  You'll hear songs like Fever, Secret Love, Cry Me a River, Lipstick on your Collar ...and many more.

Green to Go

Fabulous response to the Andrews Sisters show which finished a week ago.  No encore season for this one.  However, there are 3 encore seasons coming up ....Beginning with
  • TO BE SHORE TO SHORE - the annual Irish celebration - Sunday 15th March 3pm
     To Be Shore To Shore celebrates Irish culture and character with a variety of Song, Tunes, Poetry and spoken Word.  Past audiences have agreed that this is a thoughtful celebration, always good for a few laughs, and a pleasant alternative to the typical raucous pub-style ‘knees-up’ often associated with St Pat’s day.

     Included in the show is Maureen’s highly acclaimed “Borderless” presentation – an account of female Irish settlement in Australia and how it shaped Australian culture and society. The presentation contains plenty of little-known facts, stories, and anecdotes interspersed with original songs –   It has received wide acclaim at a number of festivals, events, folk clubs, and dedicated concerts.

     But whether you have Irish ancestry or not, Borderless is a fascinating look into Australia’s past and present.

Guest musicians are Gary Roberts and Peter Smith – both well-known in the local folk community.  Guest artists include:  Celtic chorus group Heart of Erin;  young up-and-coming fiddler Manon: with poetry and readings from Louise Costello and Roslyn McDonald.

at The Dungeon, 608 Glebe Road, Adamstown.  Tickets are $23 at the door or discounted tickets ($18) are available online at . Tickets include Light refreshments
