Find out what's on at the Moncrieff

THE countdown has begun to the end of the year and we have three live stage shows left to present in 2014.

The first is a local production: It All Begins With Love.

Show you say no to domestic and family violence, proudly presented by Bundaberg arts production company, Creative Regions.

It all Begins With Love is a verbatim theatre project developed to bring attention to the issue of domestic violence in our community.

Collaborating with domestic violence service providers in Bundaberg for the past two years, Creative Regions presents this high-impact professional production, premiering in our home town.

The play presents real life stories, as told by victims of domestic violence.

Be the first to see It All Begins With Love here at the Moncrieff before the play goes on tour in 2015.

Summer is the theme this year at the 2014 TNT Dance Studio Variety Concert.

On December 5-6 the TNT dancers will have you wishing you had brought your bathers as the jazz dancers heat up the stage in their sizzling yellow polka-dot bikinis and vibrant bouncing beach balls.

The senior lyrical performers cannot wait to cool you off with their colourful fans as the ever so adorable tiny tots with their buckets and spades in hand light up the stage as they perform routines on their very own.

With beach umbrellas twirling and 18 body boarders ready to boogie, it will be a night of spectacular entertainment for the whole family.

When summer is done the Musical Theatre Group will transport you back to school again.

Naughty ballerinas will be put in line by "old school" teachers who won't put up with any nonsense, even if they are distracted by the only male in the staffroom.

The energetic acrobatics team and Crazy Professors who experiment on their own colleagues will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Come and enjoy an amazing display of young talent from the dancers of TNT Dance Studio as they present their 2014 Summer School Showcase.
