PARAGON SUP­PORTS CHAR­ITY

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

THE Paragon Theatre has wel­comed back to the stage Brass Mon­keys.

Lead singer and en­ter­tainer Barry Franklin took to the stage on Satur­day night with his band of fine mu­si­cians as they rocked tunes from yes­ter­year.

Crowds joined in as he belted out favourite tunes from Johnny O’Keefe, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis.

The au­di­ence num­bers were down on last year; nev­er­the­less, the pa­trons en­joyed the en­ter­tain­ment.

The theatre floor shook as 1960s rock­ers took to the dance floor.

Merissa Craft, owner and man­ager, said it was a fan­tas­tic night host­ing Brass Mon­keys.

“I hope this en­cour­ages other acts to come to Childers,” she said.

The her­itage-listed build­ing has been un­der­go­ing works for sev­eral years and with the fi­nal stage of the streetscape al­most com­plete, the Paragon is set for star­dom once again.

“It’s a great theatre with plenty of places to hold spe­cial events,” Mrs Craft said.

In Oc­to­ber the theatre will host some fan­tas­tic events and Mrs Craft en­cour­ages to com­mu­nity to at­tend.

With the school hol­i­days in full swing, a fam­ily-friendly movie will be on the big screen at the Paragon.

The Paragon Theatre is set to fea­ture more great acts from around Aus­tralia.

Childers will welcome, all the way from Mel­bourne’s Com­edy Fes­ti­val, “Spoilt”, set for Oc­to­ber 16.
