Friday, 22 June 2012 to 23 June 2012 – 8:00 PM ‘Biddies’ Written by Don Reid, Directed by Wayne Harrison THREE SHOWS FRIDAY 22 JUNE 8PM, SATURDAY 23 JUNE 2PM & 8PM Five ordinarily marvellous women find themselves back in their infants school classroom plying their needles in a good old-fashioned session of ‘stitch and bitch’. Their confessions are frank, their rivalries intense and their jokes outrageous. They discover a common frustration with the limitations of being female and mature in a world still largely defined by men. Accidentally locked in the classroom, with nothing but ingenuity, Adora Cream Wafers and a bucket to get them through the crisis, unknown reserves come to the fore. Released from their own constraints, they rediscover their capacity to love, forgive – and take control. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em! Don Reid’s play CODGERS was a touring favourite in 2010, described by the Sydney Morning Herald as ‘…a heart-warming comedy…you’re in the hands of skilled experts who really do know what they’re doing, how to do it and why.’ Now it’s time to hear from the ladies, as some of Australia’s most beloved actresses bring this delightful new comedy to the stage. You’ll laugh till you cry. Move over Codgers, the Biddies are in town! ‘Vulnerable, feisty and in full bloom, these gals are everything – except old!’ Prices: Adults $39 Pension $35 Under 21 $32 Group 8+ $30 BOOK ONLINE LOCATION: Manning Entertainment Centre, 33 Manning River Drive Taree PHONE: 6592 5466 WEB: www.gtcc.nsw.gov.au

Friday, 29 June 2012 – 10:00 AM – The Bugalugs Bum Thief Monkey Baa’s The Bugalugs Bum Thief Based on the book by Tim Winton Skeeta Anderson’s got a problem. He’s woken up without his bum. He soon realizes that he’s not the only one without a behind! All 496 citizens of the town of Bugalugs are BUMLESS! Along with his best mates Mick Misery and Billy Marbles, Skeeta sets out on a side-splitting adventure to track down the culprit of the crime. On the way we meet the colourful characters of Tim Winton’s much loved story including Skeeta’s mum and dad, Mick’s Mum the miserable Mrs Misery, Billy’s sister Mavis Marbles, the sleepy Constable Coma and the school teacher Mr Wally. Monkey Baa’s hilarious adaptation of The Bugalugs Bum Thief has toured across five states and territories, on four separate occasions, playing to over 100,000 young people. A decade later, this hysterical adventure returns to the stage for a new generation of young people and their families to enjoy. Join Skeeta and his friends in this ripper adventure that will have you singing along and laughing your own bum off! And besides that, bums are funny! Fantastic! The children loved it. They have not stopped talking about it or singing the songs. The actors were top class. Teacher Benalla West P.S Victoria Bright colourful, action packed, very funny, very close to the actual storyline, great to see the children Teacher Korumburra PS VIC. We loved it.
