Type Faster Productions presents Newk: The John Newcombe Story, at the Frankston Arts Centre. Featuring Damian Callinan, the star of the recent hit film The Merger, it’s the story of the naïve schoolboy who became an Australian tennis champion.

Set in 2014 at Newk’s 70th birthday in Sydney, the play follows Newcombe’s journey from 1960s schoolboy to the No.1 player in the world in the 1970s to his time as Davis Cup captain to the stroke he suffered in 2003. Numerous well-known guests drop by to celebrate his special day and share the memories. Both drama and comedy, Newk portrays a highly determined and ambitious man burning through a quickly changing world. It exposes the exhausting schedules that even players of yesteryear endured as Newcombe becomes aware he’s putting his family second emotionally while conscious of providing for them financially. Volatile off-court politics are also rife as the game moves into full-blown professionalism.

Newk will be performed on Friday, February 14, at 8pm. Tickets: $30-$40. Bookings: 9784 1060 or thefac.com.au

Meanwhile, Orquesta Bombon and Ventana Fiesta present Postcards of Tango, a cast of 12 musicians, six dancers and two visual artists who will bring the story of tango from South America to life for the first time in Melbourne.

Be transported back in time to the ports of Buenos Aires and Montevideo, where thousands of migrants arrived accompanied by their own unique rhythms and sounds. Through this musical, dance and visual arts journey from 1840 to 2020, you will witness how costumes and customs converged and harmonised to create the modern tango.

Join the powerful musical and cultural voyage at the Frankston Arts Centre. Feel the rhythm on Thursday, February 27, at 8pm. Tickets: $30-$45. Bookings: 9784 1060 or thefac.com.au
