Annie
Based on the popular comic strip, Annie tells the extraordinary story of a little orphan who ends up in the lap of luxury with Depression-era billionaire Oliver Warbucks. Unlike most of the other children at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage, fiery Annie believes that her parents are still alive and will one day return to claim her. So when Mr. Warbucks offers to adopt her, she asks the most powerful man in America to help find her real parents instead, and he agrees. Warbucks’ whopping reward for Annie’s parents attracts the attention of con-artists Rooster, Lily and the wicked Miss Hannigan, who
hatch a plot to kidnap Annie and take the reward. This is a heart-warming family show filled with classic songs such as Hard Knock Life, Easy Street, You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile and the perennial Tomorrow.

Insignificance
Picture this – a famous sex-kitten actress… a legendary baseball player… an evil senator… and possibly the world’s most brilliant man…They’re the four characters that come together one hot, steamy night in New York in the early ‘50s – the night Marilyn Monroe filmed that famous scene for Billy Wilder’s
The Seven Year Itch where the hot air from the subway grate blew her dress, and her, into pop icon history. Insignificance revolves around the chance meeting of Marilyn Monroe and Albert Einstein in a New York hotel room on a hot night in 1954. Her husband at the time, Joe DiMaggio and Senator
Joseph McCarthy also appear, creating an entertaining and engaging clash of cultures and ideas. The play was a hit when first staged 30 years ago. WWLT director Gavin Critchley has waited 30 years for the opportunity to
present his take. It is funny, engaging, touching and at times terrifying, while the dialogue is fast, historically accurate and razor sharp. Tickets: www.woywoylt.

THE 39 STEPS

Adapted by Patrick Barlow From an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon

The 39 Steps is a fast-paced, side-splitting comedy featuring over a hundred characters played by four actors.

Paying homage to the ‘spy’ genre as well as other classic Hitchcock films, the spectacularly funny and cleverly-performed stage adaptation of The 39 Steps was hailed as being “theatre at its finest” by The New York Times. A rip-roaring night out for all the family, don’t miss this theatrical tour-de-force already seen by over 3 million people in more than 60 countries!

James Reyne: Acoustic Anthology Tour

James Reyne has enjoyed a distinguished solo career, releasing ten solo albums from his 1987 self-titled debut through to his most recent offering, 2012’s ‘Thirteen’.   Friday August 1 sees the release of ‘The Anthology’, a salute to an artist who has long earned the respect of music critics and the admiration of fans for his unique lyrics, trademark vocal, and authenticity and honesty.

‘The Anthology’ is a 2 CD, 35 song set showcasing this career – from ‘Fall Of Rome’ and ‘Hammerhead’ through to ‘Slave’, the chart-topping ‘Way Out West’ with James Blundell, and the Company Of Strangers hit, ‘Motor City (I Get Lost’). The package is a boon for fans, featuring new liner notes from recent interviews with James, alongside unseen photos and complete lyrics.

James’ distinctive vocal has always attracted attention. Legendary producer Mark Opitz says: “No one else sings like James Reyne. He is unique, and you don’t want to lose that.” While journalist Ed Nimmervoll says it’s a voice “as familiar to us as the taste of Vegemite, as essentially Australian”.

Given James’s remarkable success as a solo artist - with multi-platinum sales and three top ten ARIA albums - The Anthology is a long overdue collection of some of the finest Australian recordings of the last three decades.

A Bell Shakespeare production
Henry V

It’s lonely at the top. When King Henry V is manipulated by church advisors, taunted by French royalty and betrayed by English nobles, he has all the ammunition he needs to lash out and invade France. Or does he? Having executed conspirators and vanquished enemy forces in Harfleur, Henry’s army is ‘weak and sickly’ as it staggers towards a showdown at Agincourt. The night before battle, the king endures a long dark night of soul searching, where he hears first-hand the fears and frailties of his outnumbered soldiers. But Henry holds one last weapon: the power of words. And it may just save his men, his country and himself.
Damien Ryan’s courageous production of Henry V promises to be an unflinching examination of the questions that Shakespeare raises about political spin, patriotism, religion, class, monarchy, brotherhood and how leaders respond during times of crisis.
This unflinching production explores war, the eloquence of leaders and the brotherhood of soldiers from every angle. Is King Henry V a courageous leader, a cowardly manipulator or simply a little boy lost?
