Lucy Wise’s whimsical contemporary folk sound has won the hearts of audiences across Australia, NZ, the USA and the UK. She explores themes of love, the natural world, friendship and healing with disarming honesty, and accompanies her stunningly pure vocals with fingerpicked guitar, ukulele, and Appalachian dulcimer. Lucy’s 2018 album, “Winter Sun” was received with critical acclaim: a 4.5 star review in the Weekend Australian and was a finalist for The Age Music Victoria Awards’ Best Folk or Roots Album. Lucy is currently recording her fourth album, to be released in 2022. “Lucy is a natural storyteller, infusing songs with a sense of place so strong you can almost feel the dusty earth crunch beneath your feet as she sings,” says The Brag.

The Magnolia Tree – 22nd May

The Magnolia Tree – 22nd May

The Magnolia Tree

By Michael Gray Griffith

A new Australian thriller with a twist…

Saturday 22nd May 2021 7.30pm

Three siblings have come together to choose a nursing home for their mother, who has advanced Alzheimer’s, but instead Jack, for unclear reasons, will attempt to talk his sisters into letting her go, tonight. Will his sisters’ principles hold up, or will the decades of poverty ahead of them force them to re-evaluate the morality their mother taught them?

The play has a deliciously dangerous twist that you will be talking about for days.

So the real question is, how robust is your morality?

Starring Tottie Goldsmith in the role of Vicky, Rohana Hayes, one of the Co-founders of The Wolves, will play the other sister Debbie, and Ezra Bix who is starring in the upcoming Netflix show Clickbait, will play the controversial Jack.

The Magnolia Tree is presented by The Wolves Theatre Company, a group of artists determined to show that mature creatives can be original, challenging and pertinent. Their focus is to write and produce bold, contemporary pieces aimed predominantly at the 45 plus demographic.

‘In a lifetime of going to see theatre I have never been as
emotionally involved in a play as I have in this one.’
John Flaus

‘Playwright Michael Griffith has written a striking character-driven play
filled with family secrets and fractured relationships,
presenting them with an impossible bind… A must see.’
Simi West (4/5 stars)

The Kutcha Edwards Hour

The Kutcha Edwards Hour

Saturday 26th October 7.30pm

BUY TICKETS HERE

The Kutcha Edwards Hour is an invitation to be immersed in the lifelong experiences of a Stolen Generations member through songs and stories. Kutcha’s path has taken him from a child institutionalised to winning the Melbourne Prize for Music. Kutcha is a story teller and, using these skills, he delivers a concert that proves to be both riveting and enriching. 

Removed from his family and culture, he has recaptured his Songline and spends his life casting ‘pebbles in to the pond’, creating wave upon wave of cultural awareness through his music and performance charisma.

Writing music and singing have been Kutcha’s lifeline as well as a continuation of his Songline. Throughout the hour with Kutcha the audience will hear firsthand how it was growing up as an Aboriginal in a land that did not recognise his people as citizens of their own country.

Kutcha’s songs are incredibly moving and personal, including a song written about the time he turned 18 and was freed from State care, despite having returned to his Mother at the age of 14 after removal at 18 months. Kutcha sings of the impact of Government policies of removal and assimilation on his people and the ramifications that have pervaded the wellbeing of Aboriginal people since.

Humour also plays a strong role alongside his songs, playfully engaging his audience throughout the hour. Kutcha presents an inclusive and inviting conversation with the audience, while also provoking emotive responses to his personal story, that of his family and his community.

Each show concludes with the singing of what is virtually an anthem, the beautiful song Yil Lul by Jo Geia. The audience is invited to sing together and are left feeling they’ve had a positive experience, and their cultural awareness heightened.

Varietyville

Varietyville

Friday 30th August – 7.30pm

BOOK TICKETS HERE

Two ʻmust seeʼ artists of outrageously funny proportions combining their talents into one incredible show for your pleasure!

Starring award winning, five star internationally renowned physical comedian Daniel Oldaker aka “Dandyman” (La Soireé, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Melb. Int Comedy Fest) and the inimitable circus variety star Rani Huszar, as seen on ABC’s “Live at the Memo”, “The Sideshow” and the world renowned variety show La Cliqué.

Varietyville is based around two characters. One wants to present meaningful art that has a message whilst the other loves creating entertainment that is accessible to everyone. It’s art versus entertainment, variety with vavoom.

Varietyville takes variety to a whole new level. Bite sized morsels of masterful magic, chaotic clowning, preposterous physical feats, musical mayhem, hilarious hi-jinks and much, much more!

Three Birds One Cock

Three Birds One Cock

Friday 5th July 7.00pm

BOOK HERE

Footsteps! Gunshots! Lingerie! Deception!

Will all go to plan for these strong-willed bombshells?

A black comedy dripping with noir, glamour, murder and suspense.


As Alfred Hitchcock and his films are iconic and influential points in pop culture and film history, Three Birds One Cock is a show that takes his famous heroines and gives them stories of their own, with a contemporary punch and a dose of dark-humoured comedy.

A bit about the show!
Three of Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic blondes from Vertigo, Psycho and The Birds find themselves trapped in an absurd “whodunnit” murder mystery. Something sinister is lurking in the shadows and things are not quite what they seem.

Terrified that any one of them could be the next victim, these blondes must use their feminine charm and cunning skills to unravel a storyline much darker than they realize, tumbling towards morbid endings of their own.

On Friday 5 July 2019 at 7:00pm
