HEB is a major retrospective of the works of acclaimed political cartoonist Bob Hebden. A Townsville local, HEB created over 4,000 cartoons during his lifetime, many of which were published in the Townsville Advertiser, and Townsville Sun for a period spanning four decades. HEB's cartoons regularly delighted readers (an occasionally sparked controversy), as he turned his undoubted talent as a draughtsman and acerbic humour to local and national issues and events, identities and sporting teams. This exhibition is made possible thanks to the generosity of HEB's family, who have kindly loaned his original illustrations and paintings.

Cartoon by Robert 'HEB' Hebden

Always... Patsy Cline is more than a tribute to the legendary country singer. The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan named Louise Segar, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in 1961, and continued correspondence with Cline until her untimely death.

The musical play, complete with down home country humour, true emotion and even some audience participation, includes 27 of Patsy's unforgettable hits, such as Crazy, I fall to pieces, Sweet Dreams and Walking after Midnight. 

The Show's title was inspired by Cline's letters to Segar, which were consistently signed "Love ALWAYS...Patsy Cline".

Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of friends struggling to make it in the big city. They try to live each day at a time, concentrating on the value of their relationships with one another, attempting to make a living while staying true to their ideals. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this ground-breaking musical.
