High Schools

2020 Education Season

Our 2020 Season has two shows suitable for high school audiences and relevant to the curriculum.

All tickets are $25 for high school groups and we offer 1 free ticket for every 20 purchased (for the teacher)

The Sapphires

This show has been cancelled. It will re-tour in 2021 and will go back on sale with new dates later this year. The multiple award- winning musical play, which inspired the film, is coming to the Civic Theatre stage next April.

Four young country music-loving Aboriginal women from regional Australia suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives.  Wearing sequins and armed only with microphones, they set off to spread joy in the hell that is the Vietnam War.
The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Briggs’ mother. It is the incredible journey of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing classic soul hits against the backdrop of personal change and massive social upheaval. An energetic, fun and engaging play that affirms life and the realisation of dreams.

Running time: 2hrs 10min (inc interval)
Venue: Civic Theatre

Some mild adult themes, simulated warfare & coarse language

Animal Farm

This show has been postponed. It will re-tour in 2021 and will go back on sale with new dates later this year. 

Shocking, relevant and wickedly funny. Pig in now to avoid disappointment.

Animal Farm, one of the most enduring political commentaries returns in a multi-award winning, critically-acclaimed theatre production. George Orwell’s intensely powerful fairy tale allegorizes and satirises communist governments while illustrating with stunning simplicity how greed and power corrupts with devastating consequences to all who yield.

Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm. The pigs have assumed control and all the animals, fuelled by enthusiastic camaraderie and guided by a set of self-imposed rules, are promised a better life free from the self-serving greed of humans. However, it is not long until the rules that promised equality and freedom become the shackles that bind the animals once again.

Running time 90mins no interval
Suitable for ages 12+.

Haze, smoke, strobe effects, loud music.
