The Bundaberg community is invited to celebrate the festive season with a talented local cast performing Christmas favourites as part of the Saint Stella Presents production.
Noel – A Christmas Concert is a showcase of homegrown singers, musicians and performers, set to be an occasion for the Bundaberg community to enjoy uplifting songs and embrace the Christmas season.
There will be a matinee and an evening performance at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on Saturday 17 of December at 2 pm and 7 pm.
The matinee will be accompanied by AUSLAN interpreters to support our inclusive show experience.
Noel – A Christmas Concert will be hosted by Rebecca Hutchins and Kyle Schneider and there may even be a few other surprise special guests popping up throughout the concert.
Saint Stella Presents co-founder Hannah Jacobs said the event aimed to create an opportunity for families to get into the festive spirit.
“With the annual Bundaberg Carols by Candlelight event being cancelled the last two years in a row due to unfavourable weather, we wanted to create a similar experience for the Bundaberg community that would go ahead rain, hail, or shine,” Hannah said.
“Using the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre as our venue allows us to do this.
“We also wanted to put on a show that would give as many talented local singers, musicians and performers the opportunity to be a part of a professional show right here in their hometown.
“Many of our featured soloists have performed on stages around the world and it is a privilege to have such a talented group of performers involved with our Christmas concert this year.”
The concert will feature an extraordinary line-up including soloists Suellen Cusack-Greensill, Toni Jordan, Jessica Savage, Ruby Mills, Stella Hutchins, Logan Tinney, Nate Stevenson, Natalie Sweetapple and many more talented musicians and performers.
