LOOK WHO JUST GREW UP

Noosa Life and Style - - THINGS TO DO -

Ex­tra seat­ing is just the ticket to host big­ger au­di­ences and big­ger acts at The J! Thanks to the roll-out of 64 new mez­za­nine-level seats, The J is set to sat­isfy larger au­di­ences and entice even more acts to Noosa.

The new tiered seats have brought The J’s seat­ing ca­pac­ity to 402. Lo­cated on the mez­za­nine level the seats are com­fort­able and of­fer a great view of the stage. The seat­ing is also re­mov­able, al­low­ing the mez­za­nine to be set up as a meet­ing space for up to 50 peo­ple when not needed for a stage show or con­cert. Up­com­ing events in­clude Jimeoin, A Cho­rus Line, The Ul­ti­mate Eagles Ex­pe­ri­ence and the Ocean Film Festival World Tour. To find out more about all the fan­tas­tic shows com­ing up at The J, visit www.thej.com.au.

PI­RATES OF THE PANTO

SET sail for fun and ad­ven­ture on the high seas.

Zac Spar­row has just sunk the ship of Cap­tain Sponge­bag Round­pants, the mean­est, nas­ti­est pi­rate in the world, and pinched his trea­sure map. He dis­cov­ers that Sponge­bag has sur­vived and wants his map back, so he sets sail for the Caribbean to dig up the trea­sure.

Joined by his mother and a cast of crazy char­ac­ters, Zac’s ship lands on Dis­co­mainia, an is­land ruled by Queen Chaka Khan, which gives rise to much disco fun and frol­ics.

On Satur­day, Jan­uary 6, 13 and 20, at 11am and 2pm; Sun­day, Jan­uary 7, 14 and 21 at 1pm and 4pm. Tick­ets $15.

SHAME­LESS CROWD-PLEASERS

ONE-act plays by lo­cal writ­ers will be per­formed in one show, in­clud­ing Morn­ing Tea with the Min­is­ter by Bruce Olive and di­rected by Sean McBride. While en­ter­tain­ing the highly re­spected church min­is­ter, Glo­ria drops the bomb­shell she hopes will fi­nally end her days as the town spin­ster. The min­is­ter’s re­sponse is not one any­one ex­pected.

I Hate my Job, writ­ten and di­rected by Si­mon Den­ver, is about a writer who with com­plete hor­ror re­alises he has com­mit­ted a one-act play to a season at Noosa Arts that opens that night. The trou­ble is he hasn’t writ­ten it yet.

Sis­ters in Paris, writ­ten and di­rected by Frank Wilkie, fea­tures a dream trip for three sis­ters that im­plodes when com­pet­ing pri­or­i­ties, quirky per­son­al­i­ties and a mys­tery love col­lide in the City of Lights.
