classical choral concert with a range of beautiful choral works. Following intermission, the

show enters choral-theatre mode with the intergalactic love story, Moon. This epic song

of love, featuring 10 movements (songs), tells the story of the lonely Diana, her search for

Centre at 7.30pm.

Cheek to Chic Noel Coward and Cole Porter’s witty words and musical gems sparkle

with the creative collaboration of Hilary Henshaw and Peter Hurley. Timeless favourites,

including ‘I’ll See You Again”, ‘A Room With A View’, ‘Mrs Worthington’ from Noel and

‘Let’s Do It’, ‘Wunderbar’ and ‘Night and Day’ from Cole, all performed with panache,

pizzazz and pathos. Performing at the Portland Arts Centre at 10.30am.

Saturday 29 June 2013

The Table of Knowledge In ‘The Table of Knowledge’, version 1.0 turns its forensic

theatrical vision to the so-called ‘sex for development’ corruption scandal that engulfed

Wollongong City Council in 2008. Using the transcripts of the ICAC Inquiry, the script is

based almost entirely on the actual words of the central characters. This is an utterly

compelling and hilarious interrogation of power, corruption and good governance in

contemporary Australia. Performing at the Portland Arts Centre at 7.30pm.
