The Burdekin Theatre revealed its 2018 season last week when copies of the 2018 Event Guide began appearing throughout the Burdekin and beyond. The vibrant Event Guide sets out the details of all currently booked touring shows, as well as featuring a ‘Local Events’ calendar.
The Burdekin Singers and Theatre Company’s Chicago is the first production for 2018, with performances happening February 2 – 11. The local group, who are celebrating their 25th anniversary, are expecting big crowds- their 2017 Addams Family production achieved a near sell out run.
Morning Melodies are back in a big year this year. Acts include James Blundell, Karen Knowles, Nearly Neil and Rachel Beck, as well as the productions Just a Couple of song and Dance Men and Frankly Sinatra. The New Year also sees the welcome change to the cost of Morning Melodies tickets, with prices reduced to only $15 a ticet, plus the annual free Christmas Morning Melodies in December.
The free entertainment will continue when the 1RAR band performs as part of Jazz n Shiraz n Tapas in the Theatre Forecourt. Guests enjoy the smooth sounds in the afternoon, with a selection of tapas and drinks available for purchase.
