| GTC PRESENTS EXTREMITIES:
GOSFORD THEATRE COMPANY’s 2018 production
After two successful seasons at the Laycock street theatre, the Gosford Theatre Company is presenting its next production, EXTREMITIES at the HUB performance space at Erina Fair in July 2018.
EXTREMITIES is a play by WILLIAM MASTROSIMONE which tells the story of one woman’s fight to survive the aftermath of an attempted sexual assault. With her life changed forever she finds herself faced with a choice that threatens to drag her and her housemates into a frightening and dangerous situation. The play takes a serious look at how the justice system treats victims of crime and how the limits of our empathy are tested by such events.
As the only witness to the attack the audience experiences the story from the perspective of victim, peer and assailant in a reversal that turns the small loungeroom into a virtual courtroom. The performances of the four actors are exceptional and the theatrical experience is unlike anything you’ve seen before.
NOTE: Contains adult themes and strong language.
The HUB is situated next to Erina library in the shopping centre at Erina Fair. Often used for youth based musical projects the HUB has played host to theatrical productions in the past. “We felt the space provided an intimate environment that suited the needs of this particular play. It also has the advantages of raised seating, nearby parking and it’s close to local eateries so people can grab a meal before the show.”
13th - 22nd July 2018

| AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 MINUTES:
The original Pearl Beach Glee Club was formed in the nineteen fifties to raise funds to complete the Pearl Beach Memorial Hall and they put on a number of “Grand Concerts”.
The Glee Club Singers was re-formed in 2010 by a group of local music lovers to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the original Glee Club.
The success of the anniversary concert encouraged the tradition to continue and each year members have maintained the pleasure of regular meetings around the piano.
Building on a splendid tradition the 2018 programme will surprise and delight with a great variety of local talent performed by extraordinary musicians – young and old, amateur and professional.
Both concerts will feature Cappanello, enjoy the sublime voices of Anita de Lisen and Michael James, and returning by special request theatrical and television personality the extremely talented Chris King. The audience will be invited to join in with some catchy sing-alongs and enjoy a number of funny skits.
Saturday will showcase a slightly different line-up of special guests including winner of the 2017 Pearl Beach Scholarship, guitarist Min Ahn and winner of the 2018 scholarship, pianist and vocalist Aaron Carey. Both concerts will feature the unique and at times quirky world of the Pearl Beach Singers.
Dr John Irvine, Master of Ceremonies comments, “we are delighted to feature our very special guests and some of the best youth talent discovered in the recent Pearl Beach Youth concerts. The theme 'Around the World in 80 Minutes' invites you to travel with us on a magical musical journey visiting traditional and unexpected places”.

| THE WOMAN IN BLACK:
The Most Terrifying Live Theatre Experience In The World comes to the Central Coast for six thrilling performances!
Unanimously acclaimed by the critics - now in its 28th year in London’s West End – more than 7 million people having seen the play.
The Woman In Black is a terrifying trip through time into a tragic and ghostly world where the horrors of the supernatural combine with the power and intensity of live theatre to send shock waves through the audience with splendid thrills and chills.
In this brilliant adaptation of Susan Hill’s horror novella, a traumatized man (Paul Russell) recruits a young actor (Declan Dowling) to help him exorcise the ghost of the Woman in Black.
This incredible production has two amazing actors who tell their story in an old-fashioned way, relying on atmosphere, on hints, glimpses and suggestions, heard and sometimes only half seen, as well as the most spectacular soundscape created for community theatre.
The Woman In Black chills the audience as it builds to its terrifying climax.
This production is only being staged for six performances – four in the Don Craig Room at Laycock Street Community Theatre Thursday 23rd August, Friday 24th August and Saturday 25th August at 7.30pm and a 2pm matinee on Saturday 25th August and two performances at The Art House Wyong on Saturday 1st September at 2pm and 7.30pm.
