Concerto for Harmony and Presto
Commissioned by Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Out of the Box.
A compelling story combining musical ingenuity and playful performances. Created for 3-8 year olds and their families, a theatrical and enchanting exploration of music as a communication tool for overcoming difference.
Lily Can’t Sleep
A charming comedy for children created by comedy duo Liz Skitch and Bridget Boyle for the Out of the Box Festival and Queensland Theatre Company. Lily Can’t Sleep returns for a short season at the Redlands Performing Arts Centre in April 2016.
Comedy folk duo Warmwaters sing songs that are sweet, sour and saucy. Lena and Luke Warmwater have been described as “… the southern hemisphere’s most inspirational nu-folk duo.” Never heard of them? What’s going on in your life!?
The Warmwaters will be hitting the stage at the Brisbane Powerhouse’s Brisbane Cabaret Festival and the Redland Performing Arts Centre in June 2016.
The Moulin Beige
Paris is home to the Moulin Rouge but Melbourne prefers her cheeky little sister, The Moulin Beige. Blending stand up comedy, cabaret and variety this old school vaudeville night will leave you feeling delightfully entertained.
