Rock of Ages // Beenleigh Theatre Group

“It’s the final countdown” to get your tickets to see Beenleigh Theatre Group’s production of Rock of Ages. The show takes the audience down memory lane with all the hit songs from the 80’s featuring amazing singers and a rockin’ band. Audiences should be groovin’ over to the Crete Street Theatre to see this great show before it is too late.

Portraits // Observatory Theatre

Portraits is a horrifying tale that perfectly encapsulates some very big questions around legacy and how much loyalty we owe to the ideals and values of our parents after they die. It is not exactly enjoyable to watch because it is so cynical, but it somehow feels necessary currently to ask these questions. Driscoll’s play explores legacy and tradition and begs the question: can we ever really break free from our legacy or are we merely products of our inheritance? Observatory Theatre’s production of Portraits moves the audience from their comfortable existence into the world of the Godbold mansion to face not only the ghosts of this family but also those of their own. Bravo!
