Wide range of events coming to the Roxy

March 18, 2013

The Roxy has developed a reputation for delivering the very best in high quality entertainment to the New England North West and beyond. 2013 will be no exception.
The first live performance of the year sees the return of the side-splitting comic genius of Sound & Fury.

Masters of parody and pun, the comic trio from Los Angeles are proud to present their utterly outrageous, deliciously funny fairy tale satire Dirty Fairy Tales.

A clever combination of scripted story and improvisation, Dirty Fairy Tales will be performed on Thursday March 21 at 7:30pm.

Three well-loved fairy tales get the Sound & Fury treatment, as well as a completely improvised tale as suggested by the audience.

The show itself is dripping in double entendre, with jokes that range from rude to blue to the politically incorrect. The feeling it all could fall in a heap at any moment just adds to the fun.

Three time winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Adelaide International Fringe Festival, the trio’s impeccable comic timing and chemistry leaves no doubt as to why they’ve earned such universal acclaim.

On Monday March 18 at 10:30am The Roxy commemorates Seniors Week by presenting the Young at Heart Seniors Film Festival. Celebrate the achievements of a variety of talented seniors in Australian cinema.

The Young at Heart Film Festival presents the very best new Australian short films with senior actors in lead roles. Admission is free. Morning tea will be held at the conclusion of the screening.

A Night at the Opera on Friday April 12 at 7.30pm is a joint presentation by The Roxy and the presenters of Opera in the Paddock: Opera North West.

Featuring Bingara soprano Lexi Hutton, Melbourne based tenor, Jason Wasley, popular bass David Hibbard, founder and Artistic Director of Opera North West, Peta Blyth and pianist John Woods, this will be a gala night not to be missed.

Lexi Hutton returns to Australia only for a short period. Following her studies in London, she has achieved many successes both in the UK and Europe,” Ms Blyth said.
“She returns to the UK where she will perform the role of First Niece in the 2013 Aldeburgh Festival’s Britten Centenary production of Peter Grimes, before taking up a Young Artist contract with Deustche Opera, Berlin.”

As Opera in the Paddock will not be taking place this year, don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to enjoy the extraordinary talents of these world renowned performers in the beautiful setting of The Roxy.
