Keith has a huge fan base of THE SEEKERS  in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the Orient, and is developing another strong audience for whom his music is a breath of fresh air; the fans who appreciate the man and his guitar (and boy, can he play that 12 string!).

Throughout the show, Keith shares some amusing anecdotes from over 40 years on the international music scene. The program contains some old favourites from The Seekers, a touch of Nashville, some beautiful original ballads from his three solo CDs and a few covers of hits from the ‘60s to the ‘80s that appeal to the generation who grew up with their folks playing SEEKERS albums.

In all, this is an up-beat, heart-warming event that leaves the audience reliving their memories of the past while sharing the joy of new beginnings that is Keith Potger’s foray into solo performing.

In the trenches at Gallipoli during World War 1, two soldiers fight not only the Turkish enemy, but also the military establishment which condemns them.

On the 25th of April 1915, the British landed Australian soldiers at Gallipoli as part of an offensive against the Turkish control of the Dardanelles.

Of the 1500 men who landed in the first wave, only 755 remained in active service at the end of that day.

Over the following nine months, more than 7,500 Australians lost their lives. The campaign was then aborted and victory was handed to the Turks. The landings at Gallipoli went on to become one of the most immortal events in Australian history.

The play is based on a remarkable script written by Clem Gorman nearly 40 years ago. Described by critics as “an extraordinary experience” and “a play that should become an Australian classic”.

Gallipoli - A Manual of Trench Warfare takes place in a sandbagged trench at Gallipoli, 1915 and puts a perspective on the Great War’s legend of heroism. The main character is Barry Moon, a country boy battling not only the enemy, but himself and the establishment.

Coming just fourteen years after the Federation of Australia, the Gallipoli campaign was one of the first international events that saw Australians taking part - as Australians.

The Anzac spirit also tends to capture the idea of an Australian and New Zealand "national character", with the Gallipoli Campaign often described as being the moment of ‘birth of the nationhood’ of both Australia and New Zealand.

Suitable for: Secondary Students 13 - 17 years - education pack available call 4787 4344

Book NOW for a fun morning of music and laughter

Based on the operetta by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

Tickets on sale now at the Box Office Mon- Fri 10am-1.30pm (P 4787 4344) AND from the Candy Bar during movie screenings  AND online anytime

20th anniversary production of the entire smash hit musical… with a cast of only 6!

This is the best little big musical for the whole family with all the great songs, all the great laughs and so much more.

Starring Philip Gould, Brian Hannan, Alison Jones, Caroline Vercoe, Chris McKenna and musical director Linda O'Brien.

The story concerns Frederic, who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates. He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, and the two young people fall instantly in love. Frederic finds out, however, that he was born on 29 February, and so, technically, he only has a birthday each leap year. His apprenticeship indentures state that he remains apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday, and so he must serve for another 63 years.[2] Bound by his own sense of duty, Frederic's only solace is that Mabel agrees to wait for him faithfully.

Pirates was the fifth Gilbert and Sullivan collaboration and introduced the much-parodied Major-General's Song.

Promac Productions are considered to be THE Gilbert & Sullivan Company of Australia. Following the outstanding success of their productions of "The Mikado", the gang are returning with a fantastic treatment of the Hit Gilbert & Sullivan Classic "Pirates of Penzance". This version of Gilbert & Sullivan's most popular musical will again contain many musical delights as well as comedy scenes that will have audiences in gales of laughter.
