With a cocktail drinking Koala, beer swigging Kangaroo and an Emu that may be fast on its feet if a little slow on the uptake, it is understandably a challenging task for the poor park ranger who has the job of keeping them under control. Watch the Australian coat of arms comes to life like you have never seen it before. It will have you roaring with laughter from the opening line.
Performances of There Goes the Neighbourhood take place on Friday 21st & Sat 22nd September from 8pm both nights. Tickets: $15 (conc $10). Pay at the door. Your ticket pays for you to watch all the plays on that night.
What! Can’t make it then? Well no drama… although we hope there is! Adam Heathcote is taking The Animals to the Deloraine Festival of One Act Plays, Friday 12th & Sat 13th October at the Deloraine Little Theatre. Tel: 03 63635000 for prices and times. Fair Dinkum! That’s four chances to see this very Australian one act play.
