FROM SHAKESPEARE TO SWINGING 60S
THE Sunshine Coast Shakespeare Festival is being held at Noosa Arts Theatre in October and is not to be missed for those who love all things Shakespeare.
Showcasing Sunshine Coast actors, musicians, singers and dancers in a festival format, with adjudication from internationally acclaimed Australian actor Veronica Neave. There are entries from schools, theatre groups, dancers and musicians from all over and they are performing Scenes, Sonnets, Music and Dance. An Elizabethan delight!
The festival will run from October 13-15.
OPENING November 16 is Lipstick Dreams by Helen O’Connor and Simon Hopkinson and directed by Sue Clapham. Lipstick Dreams is a light-hearted look at the lives of four different women living in a small country town, each with their own dreams and disappointments, their thoughts of what might have been and the inevitability of what really “is”.
They all seem to settle for second best, then one day they realise that their dreams could become a reality, that “they can do it”. And that’s what these four women do, they take a chance! They let their hair down and have the time of their lives. A must-see play full of laughter, tears and fun, with toe-tapping songs from the “swinging 60s” that will have you dancing in the aisles.
