Cirque du Bloke by Three High Acrobats at Bayside Rock was “the best circus show I’ve ever seen!” chirped my teenager my daughter who is not easy to impress. My eleven-year-old son and I concurred. As an arts writer I see a wide range of performances on a regular basis, yet this one really stood […]

Review – Peninsula Ferry Tales

Peninsula Ferry Tales is a performance of stories about the Peninsula by Madness Children’s Entertainment. Beginning with the history of the people indigenous to the area was an excellent way to start the story. It’s a great way to educate children about the region they live in through word, song and a lot of high […]

Review: Don’t Look Up

Review – Midsummer Night’s Dream

What a wonderful piece of theatre. I must confess this is one of my favourite Shakespearian plays and it is always so entrancing to watch the unbelievable unfolding of events, hapless quests of love and mischievous games from the fairies. We are so lucky that a theatre company has brought this classic to Frankston and […]

Review – Open for Inspection

The premise of Open for Inspection has a lot of potential. Introducing the audience into the space as potential new housemates makes for a lot of opportunity, however this has not been explored very fully through either the text or the performances. When one is shown through a house, there is usually a tour, so […]
