Frankston Arts Centre is looking to put the ‘showstopper’ that was 2020 behind it with a bumper year of COVID-safe entertainment designed to delight lovers of comedy, musical theatre and more.
“Our team has been working tirelessly to bring you an incredible line-up of quality entertainment, including accomplished comedian Akmal (pictured), Cadd and Morris, The Traveling Wilburys Sessions and plenty more,” said Frankston City Council’s arts and culture manager, Andrew Moon. “The positive feedback at our invitation-only show in November and first ticketed show in December was amazing. Our patrons are saying they can’t wait to attend more shows this year and experience all that Frankston Arts Centre offers.”
Coming shows include:
• Friday, February 12: Gorgeous Valentines, with Rhonda Burchmore and Rachael Beck, is a delightful, humorous concert of first-class entertainment and glamour featuring sparkling renditions of their favourite songs;
• Saturday, February 20: I Have A Face is award-winning cabaret artist Jude Perl’s comedic insight into her personal and relatable mental health struggles of being an adult;
• Thursday, February 25: Lamb, a new Australian play presented by Red Stitch, is written by multi-award-winning playwright Jane Bodie and features original songs by Mark Seymour; and,
• Sunday, February 28: The 91-Storey Treehouse, featuring a deserted island, a whirlpool, a giant spider and a fortune teller to be wary of, will delight primary school-age students and adults alike.
Tickets for these shows are on sale now through the FAC, but most of the other shows planned for 2021 will not open for ticket sales until six weeks beforehand to ensure the venue complies with the latest capacity restrictions.
