The Art House Announces Circus-themed First Birthday Celebration
A part of the fabric of the arts on the Coast, it’s hard to believe The Art House Wyong is only turning one this May. To celebrate the milestone, they’re bringing the Circus to Wyong for a weekend of celebration.
Circus Oz, the rock-n-roll, one-of-a-kind, uniquely Australian Circus shakes up the theatre for one weekend of breathtaking stunts, irreverent humour and cracking live music in a brand-new show ‘Model Citizens’- a show that both adults and children will love. With a huge set made up of every-day objects blown up to epic proportions, this production will be a hair-raising celebration of what it means to be an Australian today.
To get the first birthday party started, ticketholders will need to make sure they get there up to an hour before showtime to experience all the fun of the circus as they arrive to the theatre, with fairy floss, popcorn, acrobatics and more all taking place in the foyer.
Get your tickets today before they sell out to see world-class acrobatics, daredevil stunts and more right in the heart of the Central Coast and to join the Central Coast’s premier performing arts’ centre for an unforgettable celebration.
So come join the circus, book your seats to any Circus Oz performance on 19 & 20 May and enjoy the festivities!
Tickets: $25-$49 (including foyer festivities from one hour prior to showtime)

National Tour Of Diary Of A Wombat
Produced by award-winning Monkey Baa Theatre Company and based on the multi-award winning picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley
Millions of young people around the world have adored Diary of a Wombat, and now finally this iconic work has been adapted for the stage for the first time by Monkey Baa Theatre Company, and showing at The Art House Wyong on Saturday 1 April as part of a national tour. This landmark Australian production will feature stunning puppetry, a live cello score and a brilliant set design in Monkey Baa’s signature style.
Audiences aged three and over will meet Mothball, the naughtiest wombat in Australia. Bored with her daily routine, Mothball goes in search of shelter and food, creating chaos in the lives of the humans around her. Doormats, bins and washing lines are no match for this mischievous marsupial. Between a packed schedule of scratching, sleeping and eating, Mothball discovers that with a bit of persistence humans are quite easily trained!
Director Eva Di Cesare: “We've assembled an extraordinary team of artists to bring this iconic picture book to life. Diary of a Wombat is such an enduring childhood classic and audiences are going to fall in love with Mothball all over again when she burrows her way on to our stage.”
Jackie French, author of Diary of a Wombat said "What Monkey Baa has done is extraordinary. In fact, what they have done is impossible, but Monkey Baa has always done the impossible."
Following its Sydney premiere Diary of a Wombat will tour 59 venues across Australia until November and will make its Central Coast debut at The Art House Wyong on Saturday 1 April.

A Night Of 50’s Glamour At The Art House Wyong
Put on your 1950s best, curl your hair, shine your vintage car and get to The Art House on April 5 for a night of 50s Hollywood glamour from The 7 Sopranos.
Living up to their reputations as the “showgirls of opera,” The 7 Sopranos’ new show – Songs from Stage and Screen, draws upon classic songs such as – I Got Rhythm, Big Spender and Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend—in a deliciously cheeky show celebrating sisterhood, the power of transformation, and flirtatious fluttering petticoats.
The show is a triumph of beautifully blended harmonies, incredible musicianship and spine‐tingling arrangements from acclaimed composers such as Rogers & Hammerstein, Gershwin and Mancini.
The 7 Sopranos will intoxicate the senses and seduce the mind with a stage show like no other. So, channel your inner Doris Day, Marilyn Monroe or Rita Hayworth as you are transported into a world of nylons, killer heels and eye-poppin’ lipstick!
The 7 Sopranos perform their new show at The Art House Wyong on Wednesday 5th April at 7.30pm
Tickets can be purchased for these shows, and all The Art House’s 2017 line-up, from www.thearthousewyong.com.au or direct from the box office on 4335 1485

WMTC Inc. is proud to present Sweet Charity ...
Charity Hope Valentine works at a seedy Times Square dime-a-dance joint.
Charity is an incurable optimist with a golden heart who longs for love but never seems to look for it in the right places, until one day the fickle finger of fate intervenes and she falls in love with Oscar, from whom she must hide her chequered past and sordid dance hall job.
Leading the creative team is Director Margaret Holdom, Musical Director Maryellen Gillard and Choreographer Zachary Webster.
To do a show set in the swinging sixties is a special bonus for me. This would have to be my favourite fashion era, and I was a young fashion conscious teenager in that decade.
It was a time when the world was changing rapidly, and women were making themselves heard. Perhaps many of us could relate to Charity’s plight, and knew there was something better than this!
I have enjoyed the most wonderful opportunity to work with the extremely talented Maryellen and Zachary, along with all the other members of my Creative Team. The big question when putting on this show is will a triple threat actress turn up at auditions for the lead role?
We were immediately put at ease when Monique Donath performed for us, and she is supported by an extremely talented cast.
With hits including ‘Big Spender’, ‘Rhythm of Life’ and ‘If My Friends Could See Me Now’, join WMTC for Bob Fosse’s iconic Sweet Charity to see if our heroine can live ‘Hopefully Ever After”...
Book by Neil Simon - Music by Cy Coleman - Lyrics by Dorothy Fields
Based on an original screenplay by Federico Fellini, Tullio Pinelli and Ennio Flaiano
Produced for the Broadway stage by: Fryer, Carr and Harris
Conceived, Staged and Choreographed by Bob Fosse
