THE FAVOURITE

Cert 15

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. Queen Anne occupies the throne but is frail, so Lady Sarah governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. New servant Abigail arrives and while Sarah is caught up in the politics of war, she fills in as the Queen's companion. Their friendship gives Abigail a chance to fulfill her ambition of returning to her aristocratic roots and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

GULP!

Swimming in the sea, splashing in her paddling pool, squirting her sister with a water pistol… But, one summer day, she gets sucked up the bathroom tap - SQUOOSH! - and along the water pipes! WHOOAAHHHH! Maya goes on an exciting journey, whooshing through oceans, plunging into rivers and floating in clouds, encountering a flood, a drought and fascinating people and creatures. Gulp! is an interactive story for all the family dripping with fun!

This is a RELAXED PERFORMANCE, which means everyone is welcome. Perfect for children’s first theatre experience, children with additional needs or disabilities, or those who may prefer a more relaxed environment.

GREEN BOOK

Cert 12A

In 1962, "Tony Lip" Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, looking for work becomes the driver for African-American classical pianist Don Shirley on his concert tour into the Deep South states. They begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America's racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer barely get along. The disparate pair witness and endure appalling injustices on the road and nurture a friendship and understanding that changes both their lives.

SWIMMING WITH MEN

Cert 12A

Feel-good larkiness in jaunty but formulaic style. Accountant Eric is simply treading water when he discovers a newfound sense of purpose thanks to an unexpected source: a group of similarly stuck-in-a-rut guys who have found camaraderie through synchronized swimming. Sure, they may be a bit paunchy, but they're determined to prove they have what it takes to be a whirling, twirling, scissor-kicking aquatic dream team.

Running time 97 minutes
