A giant is coming to Buderim, Cinderella is visiting Eumundi, and there are talking vegetables in the fridge at Coolum!
Yes it is Panto season once again, are there are 3 lively shows to choose from this January, so when it is too hot to go to the beach, and the kids are bored, get along to a local theatre near you for some fun, family entertainment.
Watch out for the Giant in Jack and the Beanstalk at BATS Theatre Co, in Buderim, and the evil lightbulb in Friends in the Fridge at Coolum Theatre Players, and the handsome prince in Cinderella at the Indee at Eumundi.
Friends in the Fridge, written by locals Chris Clark & Kate Reeve, is set in a refrigerator and centres on the food items and an evil lightbulb called Lance. There is a villain, a heroine and a very unlikely hero.
This is an educational panto teaching children that even the weakest can overcome any obstacle. There will be lots of dancing, singing and most of all lots of fun.
Cinderalla at the Indee at Eumundi Theatre, is a traditional, fun and colourful family-priced panto peppered with singing and dancing, and featuring an excellent cast, including special guest Ashley 'Tugboat' Robinson who doesn't mind donning a tutu for a good cause.
There is plenty of choice, with something for everyone, so get along to some air-conditioned comfort for great, affordable children¹s entertainment. For more details visit www:livetheatre.com.au
