GCLT is hav­ing a Mother’s Day pro­mo­tion. In­stead of choco­lates, why not buy mum a gift voucher for a mu­si­cal or play at any of the per­for­mances com­ing up at the Gold Coast Lit­tle Theatre in 2015? The forth­com­ing mu­si­cal of Jerry’s Girls would be a sure hit with most mums. She can then go when she wants to and at what time. Mother’s Day gift vouch­ers are avail­able through the box of­fice and can be emailed in time for that spe­cial day. Phone 5532 2096. The Mur­willum­bah Theatre Com­pany is host­ing a Bell Shake­speare Ham­let mas­ter­class.

This year, Bell Shake­speare cel­e­brates 25 years of in­cred­i­ble tour­ing pro­duc­tions and ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams and is worl­drenowned for the qual­ity of its shows and teach­ing skills.

The Gold Coast Jazz and Blues Club will present Lee Gun­ness to­mor­row night at the Par­adise Show­room, ac­com­pa­nied by the Cax­ton Street Jazz Band.

The fab­u­lous head­gear you will see in Jerry’s Girls are just some of his cre­ations! The popular GCLT Drinks with the Direc­tor will be held at 6pm Tues­day night at the theatre. Direc­tor Kate Peters and some of the pro­duc­tion team will talk about putting Jerry’s Girls to­gether and also stage one or two items from the show. It’s al­ways a hoot of a night, and an in­ter­est­ing in­sight of what it takes to get a pro­duc­tion from the page on to the stage.
