PRI­VATE LIES

Gold Coast Lit­tle Theatre: Di­rec­tor Roger McKen­zie presents Noel Cow­ard’s Pri­vate Lives. Set in 1930, this com­edy of man­ners is cen­tred around a di­vorced cou­ple who, while hon­ey­moon­ing with their new spouses, dis­cover that they are stay­ing in ad­ja­cent rooms at the same ho­tel. Cow­ard’s wit pro­vides a night of hu­mour and un­for­get­table di­a­logue. Shows Thurs­days to Satur­days un­til Au­gust 15, with mati­nees on Sun­day and Au­gust 9. gclt.com.au

Spotlight Theatre: Di­rected by Mor­gan Gar­rity, this fab­u­lous mu­si­cal is a story of self­dis­cov­ery.

De­ter­mined to get him back, Elle uses her charm to get into the same school and tack­les stereo­types, snob­bery, and scan­dal in pur­suit of her dreams.
