Sweet Charity - Musical
By Neil Simon, Cy Coleman & Dorothy Fields
Directed by Linda Gefken
Coolum Theatre Players
Coolum Civic Centre
Park Rd Coolum Beach

Charity Hope Valentine is employed as a hostess at a New York dance hall in the late 1960s.  Inside the Fan Dango Ballroom, Charity is companioned with streetwise hostess who often share their cynical advice about love.  Outside the dance hall, Charity's innocent vulnerability is repeatedly taken advantage of by con artist, panhandlers and even a boyfriend who pushes her into a lake while stealing her life savings.

Charity's "real" chance for happiness comes when the fickle finger of fate traps her in an elevator with a claustrophobic tax accountant, Oscar Lindquist, who also seems to be in search of "something".  Romance ensues only to falter when Oscar discovers Charity's true and dating history.

Through trials and tribulations, sweet Charity continues searching for love, wide-eyed and hopeful.

Wombat Stew

A Garry Ginivan Attraction
Based on the book written by Marcia K Vaughan and illustrated by Pamela Lofts
A Big Beaut Aussie Musical for Families and Kids!

One day on the banks of a Billabong, a very clever dingo caught a wombat and decided to make wombat stew...First published in 1984, Wombat Stew,is a modern day phenomenon in children’s literature which has sold more than 400,000 copies Australia wide. 2014 is the 30th anniversary since publication.

Brought to the stage by one of Australia’s leading producers of musical theatre for children, this simple story has been cleverly developed into a true-blue-dinky-di-big-Aussie-musical.

The simple story of a dingo who catches a wombat and decides to make wombat stew, has been cleverly developed into a ‘mouth-watering’ combination story-telling, mime, music, dance and puppetry, complete with blobs of mud, very fine feathers, creepy crawlies, flies, gum-nuts and a big bubbling billy can!
