Sounds of Musical Theatre


THE SHOW WILL GO ON LOCAL THEATRE IS BACK WITH A BANG Its been a tough first year for Red Tree Theatre after launching in March 2020 amidst a global pandemic, but the local theatre is not looking back with a huge headline of shows set to dazzle this season. The newest creative establishment on the Central Coast in Tuggerah is delighted to open its doors after four months of lockdown and is gearing up to reopen with a bang with Central Coast Gang Show headlining from 6 November, followed by plenty more lined up for the summer months. Red Tree Theatre Manager Ruth Jordon said shes excited about the calendar of events taking to the stage this summer.

We had a huge line-up of shows planned to make our mark on the entertainment scene this year and just as Central Coast Gang Show was prepping for their annual variety show in June, we went back into lockdown, she said. After some time to recoup, Red Tree Theatre is now thrilled to open with the Central Coast Scouts and Guides spectacular phenomenon Central Coast Gang Show, bringing much-needed feel-good live performance to the stage in line with the easing of restrictions in NSW, added Ruth. Gang Shows are a nearly 80-year-old tradition of the Scouting and Guide movement, starting in the United Kingdom before spreading around the world in the decades that followed.

Styled on the old music hall variety shows and pantomimes of the 1930s, the shows marry music and comedy generally across two acts, ending on a musical celebration of the Scouts and Guides movements themselves. We are delighted this stalwart community show that is celebrating its 30th year is joining us on stage as we open our doors in November, she added. Between November and January next year Red Tree Theatre has more than 10 major performances on the calendar and the Theatre is very proud to present its first co-produced musical theatre work, All Together Now which is a joint production between Red Tree Theatre, Create+Co and Jopuka.

All Together Now is a one weekend concert that showcases community theatre from across the world as part of Musical Theatre Internationals Global Celebration. We are very proud to be able to showcase our own work as a small, regional venue its going to be wonderful, continued Ruth. Other exciting entertainment at Red Tree Theatre is Lysa and The Freeborn Dames, Fame, Rock Anthology, Carols by Cabaret, JDs World of Magic and Ruthless the Musical.

We are so proud of the offering we have put together for the theatre this summer, as there is a fantastic mix of musicals, plays, live music and classics that will ensure everyone can get back into live and local entertainment, she said. We of course will be adhering to all health guidelines when we open and operating under our strict COVID-safe plan which includes all performers and patrons being double vaccinated, and masks will be compulsory until the end of the year, she added.
