Council’s Lake Kawana Community Centre and Coolum Civic Centre are bringing another year of high quality performances, entertainment and events to the region in 2016.

Live music, theatre, dance, comedy and children’s entertainment will all be available for the community to enjoy are all on a diverse calendar to suit all tastes and interests.

This Christmas, why not create a memory for your friends and family by giving them a gift of tickets to a Lake Kawana Community Centre show.

There is a range of experiences on offer from well-renowned Queensland Theatre Company’s Quartet by Ronald Harwood, to the devilishly funny one-woman play Mother all about redefining old age and growing old with hope written specifically for and starring the highly acclaimed Australian actor Noni Hazlehurst.

For younger generations, shake and stir theatre co bring their outstanding production of Tequila Mockingbird to the Coast. An adaptation of the classic Harper Lee novel, shake & stir give To Kill a Mockingbird, a uniquely Australian context.

For families and the little ones, Monkey Baa Theatre Company will also return with The Peasant Prince, the stage adaptation of Li Cunxin’s famous book and movie Mao’s Last Dancer.

If you want a good laugh, then make sure you catch the Aboriginal Comedy Allstars featuring the best Indigenous stand-up comedy stars from across the country.

Council’s newly refurbished Coolum Civic Centre will also play host to two great productions as part of the 2016 program. Don’t miss cabaret star Catherine Alcorn as she embodies Bette Midler in her smash hit show The Divine Miss Bette and for fans of quality independent and thought-provoking theatre, make sure you check out Pulitzer Prize winning writer Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles.

This not-to-be-missed play presents compassionate and unsentimental theatre which explores the funny, frustrating, and ultimately life-changing relationship between a grandson learning to face his life, and a grandmother who is starting to forget hers. Can’t decide?
