There’s plenty of live entertainment and laughs to be had at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre during April, May and June as showstoppers take to the stage.
Audience members will be mesmerised as illusionists Cosentino and Celtic Illusions put on magical shows during April.
In May catch musician Tommy Emmanuel or local singer Suellen Cusack in one of their sensational concerts, or if you’re more of a comedy show fan then don’t miss The Kransky Sisters performing a little later in June.
Council’s Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre was set for a stellar year of performances with more than 50 events now on sale, and the next three months was just the beginning.
“The three-monthly Moncrieff Entertainment Centre program has now been launched and doesn’t it look fantastic,” Cr Learmonth said.
“The cover features the hilarious comedy music trio The Kransky Sisters, who are making their Bundaberg debut, with their new show Assorted Nuts.
“I know the Moncrieff team has been working hard and is thrilled to bring audiences an A-list line up of shows, including artists Toni Childs, 1927 and Chocolate Starfish.”
Cr Learmonth said the Moncrieff would present three of Queensland’s major arts companies with Opera Queensland with Lady Sings the Maroons, internationally acclaimed Circa with their recent production of On, and Dead Puppet Society’s hit Brisbane Festival production Ishmael.
While international performer Paul Tabone, who has performed in The Phantom of the Opera in Australia and in London’s West End, will feature as part of the Mornings at the Moncrieff series.
“Making a comeback to the Moncrieff stage are also some popular favourites with guitarist Tommy Emmanuel, grand illusionist Cosentino, the exciting rhythms of Celtic Illusion, and everybody’s favourite The Robertson Brothers,” he said.
Local performances include Bundaberg songbird Suellen Cusack-Greensill with her special concert to celebrate the release of her new album Whisper of Angels, and the newly formed First Nations student performers Choir of Dreams will take to the stage in a special free concert to commemorate Mabo Day in June.
Cr Learmonth said while patrons waited for shows to begin, they would be able to take in the foyer exhibition that is a tribute to the centre’s namesake Gladys Moncrieff OBE.
“There sure is plenty on at the Moncrieff to keep everyone entertained,” he said.
