The Last Night at the Grand
Presented by Blue Roo Theatre Company

Blue Roo Theatre Company have been creating ground breaking inclusive theatre since forming in April 2009. The story begins when the community (now Blue Roo Theatre Company) invited theatre director Clark Crystal to deliver a one off drama workshop at Centacare Disability Services in Wilston, Brisbane to 28 people who experience a disability. Cognitive and physical disabilities include, Epilepsy, Tourette's syndrome, Down syndrome, Autism, Asperger's syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and deafness.  It resulted in an overwhelming and passionate response from the community to continue, and continue we have. Blue Roo have now created 2 productions- "Lilly Pilly Letters" in 2009 and "Sugar Cane Ball" in 2010. In December 2011 their third production "Last Night at the Grand" opens at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, Brisbane. The production also tours to The Events Centre, Caloundra and The Little Theatre, Ipswich

It is 1945, Brisbane, the demolition balls are waiting and it is the last night of one of the city’s iconic hotels’ “The Grand”. Leading socialites and fans galore come to share the final moments of “The Grand” a hotel that has entertained the rich and famous. From Frank Sinatra to Johnny O’Keefe to the Andrew Sisters to the very beginnings of our Slim Dusty, The Grand had welcomed them all. But tonight the staff are getting on with their jobs considering it’s their last, the Grand Orchestra are rehearsing their swan song and then something seriously goes amissing.

The Last Night at the Grand is theatre at its most exhilarating: A celebration of ensemble, song, dance, mayhem and magic. Inclusive Theatre at its best!
