News from the Moncrieff Theatre

THERE is a full house for the Black Diggers Live simulcast this Wednesday at 6pm.

This powerful play will be performed live at QPAC in Brisbane and streamed in real time to the Moncrieff.

The Queensland Theatre Company director was thrilled with the reception from the Bundaberg community during his recent visit and we look forward to future exciting collaborations.

After four years and more than 1200 shows headlining the Las Vegas strip, Stayin' Alive - The Australian Bee Gees Show will return to Australia for the Past and Present Tour, a brand new show for 2015.

This new show is a retrospective look at the amazing careers of The Brothers Gibb and will be presented in two parts with costume changes defining the eras. The show will feature all their greatest hits throughout the decades and will also tell the Bee Gees story in a multi-media show that captures the mood and memories of the time.

Performing at the Moncrieff on Thursday, May 7, 2015, all tickets are $55 and go on sale Tuesday, October 7.

The Sydney Travelling Film Festival is coming to the Moncrieff from Friday, October 10, till Sunday, October 12.

Opening the festival this year will be The Lunchbox, rated PG.

The movie is a delicious celebration of romance and food, this Indian indie hit features Bollywood/Hollywood crossover star Irrfan Khan (Life of PI and Slumdog Millionaire).

The movie was inspired by Mumbai's remarkable dabba (lunchbox) delivery system.

It's a system in which only one in four million home-cooked meals is incorrectly delivered.

That one wayward lunch links a housewife with an office worker in the dusk of his life.

This is a sweet movie that is sure to charm the audience.
