A Vibrant Cultural Playground: Brisbane’s Queens Wharf To Feature Stunning Visual Art Installations

SEA WALL // THAT Production Company

SEA WALL is a provocative journey through the waves – of both ocean and grief. Set in Northern Ireland, the show follows Alex, a doting father, loving husband, loyal son and gentle soul through his musings on family, spirituality, art love and loss, between crashing waves of tragedy and hope. SEA WALL is a phenomenal, top-tier show. A thought-provoking production that examines the importance of grief and how sometimes you just fall off the sea wall.

Freaky Friday // Beenleigh Theatre Group

Beenleigh Theatre’s production of Freaky Friday is playing at Crete Street Theatre. Presented with minimal set pieces, a projected backdrop, and a rotating centrepiece to signify changes between home and school, this piece relies heavily on the gumption and chutzpah of the cast. And boy do they deliver in spades! The show’s important message of humility, cooperation, and love for family both blood and chosen and the wonderful cast makes this production a must see.

Legally Blonde: The Musical // Sunnybank Theatre Group

The cast and crew of Sunnybank Theatre Group’s production of Legally Blonde should be immensely proud of their work on this production, and the proof is definitely shown by the sold out season and an extremely lively opening night crowd. A production of this calibre bodes well for all involved, and is a performance that is definitely to be seen. Bravo!

The Sound of Music // Queensland Musical Theatre

The hills are indeed alive with music! Queensland Musical Theatre’s (QMT) production of the iconic musical The Sound of Music opened at Twelfth Night Theatre last weekend. And boy, what a marvellous production! This show is a beautiful example of the power of community theatre. The music is absolutely stunning, the performers are dedicated, talented and passionate and the result is a production that leaves the audience singing tunes from the show over and over well after the night has finished. Bravo!

The Creative’s Guide To Media Kits

As creatives we often have to do everything. Not only do we spend countless hours developing work, polishing our craft and delivering fantastic creative experiences but we also have to market those experiences. Marketing can be tricky. Budgets are finite and time is limited. So it is vital to maximise our efforts in areas that will generate plenty of ticket sales. But how? The first step in this process is building a sensational media kit.
