By Patrick White Playwrights' Award Winner Jackie Smith

From internationally acclaimed, multi award-winning creators Finucane & Smith comes the haunting and electrifying work hailed as "masterful...an Australian Gothic that defines the genre".

The sheep farm is dilapidated. The farm house, dark and squalid, sits by the river, sheltering a mad old lady, and her isolated hard-drinking daughter. Memories are seeping through the floorboards. As the sun sets, the flood waters rise. The screen door bangs open in the rain and wind; Catherine has returned after 20 years. The past is here. Through the mesmerising friction between estranged sisters, fuelled by alcohol and uncertain memories of a long-dead father, three women are trapped with a past no one wants to remember.

Bristling with dark humour and edge-of-the-seat performances by three of our finest actresses, The Flood is startlingly authentic writing, plunging audiences into the lives of characters so real you feel you know them; a web of family intrigue against the haunting Australian outback.

Cast: Shirley Cattunar, Maude Davey, Caroline Lee.

Concession cards accepted for this performance: All Pension Cards, All Seniors Cards, Health Care Cards.

Rows BB to A are floor level. First elevated row is Row B.

Following their 2011 sell out performance of A Festival of Russian Ballet, the Imperial Russian Ballet Company return to Australia with their presentation of the classic masterpiece Sleeping Beauty in three acts.

The Imperial Russian Ballet Company combines the unity and integrity of the great Russian ballet schools where traditions are passed on from one generation to another.

Sleeping Beauty follows the story of Princess Aurora. During her christening, the King fails to invite the bad fairy, Carabosse, who then casts a spell on the Princess that will mean she will die from a needle prick at the age of 16. The King tries to protect his daughter by banning all needles but Princess Aurora pricks her finger on her sixteenth birthday. Act 2 is set 100 years later, when a handsome prince stumbles upon the Sleeping Beauty, Princess Aurora. She is awoken from her sleep and witchcraft is defeated.

A holiday is declared for Princess Aurora's wedding to Prince Deserea. Invited guests are entertained by fairy tale characters, as the joyous occasion is celebrated by the Kingdom.

Amigos, A play by David Williamson presented by Townsville Little Theatre in the Pimlico State High School Performing Arts Centre, known as PIMPAC. Amigos is a play about male friendship, but also about a host of other issues, from marriage, to a crisis in masculinity, attitudes towards women, men and institutions, are men oppressed and to the politics of the Olympics. Although serious topics are presented to the audience there is a whole lot of humour, David Williamson style. To sum up it's what happens when mateship and mating collide! At the Mexico Olympics, the four Amigos, an Australian rowing team, won a bronze medal. It was lifetime bonding material but 35 years later, only two of the Amigos keep in touch. Jim is a banker with money expensive house and a young, beautiful wife. It seems he has it all but his friend Dick, a heart surgeon, has something that Jim wants: a sterling reputation. The 2 mates and their wives meet up in Queensland with competing personal agendas. And then Steven, the third Amigo, turns up ready to expose all about their past. A savagely funny play that exposes the subtle aggression and unacknowledged dependencies of male friendship - and the angst and irritation created for the wives on the friendship's sidelines
