While you haven’t heard from me for a while, things have been very busy indeed, and now, through my company Entertainment Blue Mountains, I am presenting a range of theatre, music and other entertainment to you over the next few months. Please share this with anyone who you know is craving live performance events; and of course, come along to one of the following shows…
Kicking off with our first ever music gig, we thrilled to present Steve Grieve and The Mourners at the Palais Royale Hotel this Thursday 7th June. If you’re a fan of Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule, Stevie Ray Vaughan or the Badloves, this show is absolutely up your street. View more.
From 23rd June and into July, our 6th annual The Goon Show LIVE! dinner and show, also at Katoomba’s Palais Royale, is selling well. In fact, Opening Night is now SOLD OUT… there are good tickets still available for the other dates, but don’t wait too long to grab them. There’s plenty of information on the official website goonshow.com.au. This is the Best British Belly Laugh Down Under.
With the July school holidays fast approaching, we’re continuing our tradition of shows especially for the little ones aged 2-8. This time we’re presenting The Marvellous Sock Machine at the wonderful Pigeon Lane at ONE88. It’s a story of sock buddies, Spud and Gromit, who are inundated with washing soooo many socks – and they’re always losing them! What are they to do? An interactive show for kids, The Marvellous Sock Machine is a delightful 50-minute show featuring songs, loads of fun and plenty of Silly Sock Sensations! It is an interactive theatrical experience for children aged 2 – 8. Read more..
Stepping out of Katoomba and rolling down the hill to Penrith, we’re again staging The Goon Show LIVE! at a special Fathers’ Day weekend at the Penrith Gaels Cultural and Sporting Association, presenting another 3 original cult episodes; an evening show on Saturday 1st September, and an afternoon matinée on Fathers’ Day Sunday 2nd.
October is going to be very special indeed. We’re lucky enough to be hosting the talented Chrissie Shaw as she revisits her show Bijou – a cabaret of Secrets and Seduction, accompanied on piano by Alan Hicks. Bijou is a cabaret, yet it is also a play in disguise. It tells the story of a woman whose life is defined by wars. Theatre goers and lovers of cabaret alike will love Bijou, as will aficionados of fine music who will be treated to Poulenc, Saint-Saens, Debussy, Erik Satie, Jean Lenoir, Friedrich Hollander, Kurt Weill, Emil Jacques-Dalcroze etc. Those familiar with, or indeed studying French language, culture and history, literature, music etc. will particularly enjoy Bijou. Details and bookings.
More theatre and other live performance events are on the way, which will be announced as dates and details are confirmed. In the meantime, be sure to keep an eye on events pages on the website here or on Facebook.
