From July to September, the program offers high-quality productions designed to delight and intrigue audiences.

“In addition to performances from The Sydney Theatre Company and Bangarra Dance Theatre, the latest program highlights some wonderful local productions, providing a perfect opportunity for the community to support our region’s talented artists,” Cr Learmonth said.

“The Bundaberg Eisteddfod will showcase local talent with school, instrumental, and choral groups competing across three days filled with fantastic choirs, string ensembles, concert bands, jazz bands, and symphony orchestras.

“Plus, the talented Bundaberg Youth Orchestra will bring an evening of uplifting music in their very special August concert.”

Dance spectacular Burn the Floor will celebrate its 25th anniversary, headlined by the incredible vocals of Human Nature’s Phil Burton, promising an unforgettable evening of high-energy dance and music.

David Bindi Hudson, a well-known and beloved cultural leader and global ambassador for Indigenous Australia, stars in From Campfire to Stage Light.

This unique performance blends traditional storytelling with contemporary stagecraft, showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Indigenous Australia.

In September, The Sydney Theatre Company and Moogahlin Performing Arts present The Visitors, a thought-provoking play that explores significant historical themes.

Councillor Learmonth said the program offered plenty of entertainment for families and children.

“Families will be delighted by a range of shows, including the charming adaptation of The Gruffalo and the inventive, interactive performance Whalebone,” he said.

“Australia’s acclaimed dance company, Bangarra Dance Theatre will debut Waru – Journey of the Small Turtle, their first-ever work for children.

“School holidays will be extra special with a free screening of Lyle, Lyle Crocodile and Pat Malone’s Magic Garden, a show filled with wonder and enchantment that promises to captivate young minds.”

In addition to these standout performances, the program includes plenty of live music with the 7 Sopranos and Billy vs Elton plus magic and illusion with world-class illusionist Apollo Jackson.

“The quality and diversity of this season’s performances are sure to interest the whole community,” Councillor Learmonth said.
