Movies and more at the Moncrieff
THE Live Simulcast for Black Diggers on Wednesday night was a huge success; the play was well received by an audience which was an excellent mix of youth and experience.
The small cast of eight were compelling in their delivery and left a delighted audience looking forward to more simulcast presentations.
John Williamson is coming to the Moncrieff in his new show Honest People, which takes centre stage on Thursday, November 6.
Very few artists have experienced or earned the longevity of such a popular career as John Williamson.
It's a rare thing, but when you review his albums and songs, you can see why he has been such an outstanding success.
His music has continued to capture this country, its people and events for more than 44 years now.
During this time, Williamson has toured continuously and in July 2014, his 50th album, Honest People was released to coincide with the publication of his long-awaited autobiography Hey True Blue.
The Honest People tour will showcase new songs like Heatwave, Girt By Sea, Clouds Over Tamworth, Keep Walking, Kings and Queens and many more that again capture real people and real Australia.
The tour also will see him perform a host of old favourites that can never be left out of his incredibly popular show.
John Williamson is without question an Australian icon.
His voice and sound is as recognisable and important to Australia as the Southern Cross is to the flag. His music is the stuff of legend and interwoven throughout the fabric of Australia.
Good news for Bundabergians.
With all of the doom and gloom in the news we have two Aussie comedians coming to the Moncrieff.
Anh Do's bestselling book The Happiest Refugee has made readers laugh and cry.
The Happiest Refugee was described by Russell Crowe as "the most surprising and inspiring read I have had in years".
Anh's new stage show takes it a step further.
Anh is combining stand-up comedy with real life stories, photos and filmed pieces to once again retell his amazing story.
When one of Australia's most talented comedians delves deep into his own life's joys and sorrows, the result is an unforgettable night at the theatre.
The show is leaving audiences across Australia uplifted, and quite simply experiencing ... happiness.
Ahn is on at the Moncrieff on Sunday, October 26, from 7pm.
Dave Hughes is bringing his Pointless Tour to the Moncrieff on Saturday, November 1, from 7.30pm.
The simplicity of stand-up has always suited Dave.
He is in his element when it is just him, a microphone and a full house.
Hughesy is simply one of the best stand-ups we have ever produced in this country.
Now is the chance for Bundaberg audiences to catch him in peak form.
He has been outstanding during full-on seasons at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International and Sydney Comedy Festival's in the first half of 2014.
