Circus Oz explodes back onto stage, audaciously unpacking the myths of modern Australia with their latest high octane circus show Model Citizens, the first creation fuelled by the new Artistic Director Rob Tannion. Stunningly lit and driven by a sensational live music soundtrack, Model Citizens seamlessly blends the risk and beauty of breathtaking physical improbability with no shortage of theatricality, choreography and, of course, absurdity! The action unfolds within the cleverly designed model kit world which challenges perspective, scale and normality. Oversized everyday objects become an intriguing new playground of possibilities for the all-human ensemble, offering a new life as unexpected circus equipment. Imagine scaling a 6m safety pin, backflipping off a giant vertical clothes peg, getting tangled in an oversized cotton reel, or flying high in an enormous pair of aerial undies... Audiences will be taken on a visually and emotionally charged journey by the multitalented Circus Oz ensemble, exploring what it really means to be a model citizen in our ‘lucky’ country today.
Get ready for a stellar line up of some of Australia's greatest and best loved bands as they prepare to rock the Hunter Valley!

Fancy a short break on the Gold Coast? Plan it for September 2017 and combine days relaxing with a spectacular outdoor production of Aida on Coolangatta Beach in the evening. A royal love triangle, a fight for freedom and the famous ‘Triumphal March’ will light up the sky when Aida comes to the beach. It’s a night at the theatre, re-imagined for the kind of evening where you couldn’t bear to go inside. A huge cast and orchestra perform Verdi’s famous music in a new production featuring fireworks of the vocal and exploding kind, colourful costumes and local surf life savers parading past you on the sand.
