Directed by Sandra Eldridge.

A brand-new stage adaptation of a magical Australian classic. 

For more than 30 years, Mem Fox’s Possum Magic has captivated and enchanted young people all over Australia. 

Grandma Poss loves making magic. She makes wombats blue and kookaburras pink. She makes dingoes smile and emus shrink. But one day, when danger arrives in the form of a snake, Grandma uses her most magical spell to make Hush invisible. Hush has many wonderful adventures. But being invisible isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and Hush longs to see herself again. 

One problem. Grandma Poss can’t find the spell to make Hush visible again. And then she remembers…this particular magic requires something more, something special, something to do with food…people food. 

Possum Magic takes us on a whimsical journey to cities around Australia to find the food that makes Hush visible again. 

Joined by an extraordinary creative team, Monkey Baa brings to life the characters, journey and love that has made Possum Magic the most-loved and best-selling Australian picture book of all time.

Pitter Pat Productions, the people who brought you Pilbara Pan are thrilled to once again bring our local talent to the stage with the Broadway smash hit musical: The Little Shop of Horrors .

LSH.png

Seymour Krelborn is a meek and dejected assistant at a floral shop who happens upon a strange plant which he affectionately names “Audrey II” after his crush at the shop. Little does he know that this strange and unusual plant will develop a soulful R&B voice, and an unquenchable thirst for human blood. As Audrey II grows bigger and meaner, the carnivorous plant promises limitless fame and fortune to Seymour, as long as he continues providing a supply of fresh blood. Just when it’s too late, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s extra-terrestrial origins and his true drive – for world domination. Little Shop of Horrors is a delectable sci-fi horror musical, with an electrifying 1960s pop/rock score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. Pitter Pat Productions is Karratha's very own community theatre company, bringing performing arts opportunities to Pilbara people.

DID YOU KNOW?

Fatigue results in decreased productivity and is the cause of more road accidents than alcohol and drug use combined.*

Four in every 10 Australians are not getting the sleep they need.*

The direct financial cost of this inadequate sleep is currently estimated to be $26.2 billion annually. If health and well-being costs are considered, the cost rises to $66.3 billion annually.*

In 2016-17, inadequate sleep was estimated to contribute to 3017 deaths in Australia.*

High blood pressure is the No. 1 contributing risk factor for global death causing many cardiovascular complications.**

One in three adult Australians has high blood pressure, but half of them don¹t even know.**

Some people only discover they have high blood pressure after suffering from a heart attack or stroke, or being diagnosed with something else, such as heart or kidney disease.**

Small Voices Louder

SVL_AW_014-by-Ben-Landau_edit-1200x382-c.jpg

In October 2018 a group of children participated in Small Voices Louder where they were asked to follow ribbons and sit or lie in little exhibition tents decorated to inspire their imaginations.  The participating children were then asked their opinions about some of the bigger issues in life, such as:

  • What do you worry about?

  • What do you hope for the future?

  • How are adults different to children?

  • How would you change the world for the better?

  • What is love?

 

This project is all about helping adults really hear children’s point of view.  The children’s answers were recorded and short 3 to 4 minute sound scapes have been created to reflect the views of children across WA, from Broome to Albany, including Karratha.

To learn more about the project, please go to the following link: https://vimeo.com/99899678

These sound scapes are going to be exhibited at the 2Hot Festival for Young People at the Red Earth Arts Precinct from 21st June until 1st July 2019. To help bring the sound scapes to life, we are inviting children to design and make “feel boxes” and “peep boxes” to accompany each sound scape.  These boxes will help bring the exhibition to life and provide both visual and tactile points of engagement for listeners.

 

1st Workshop – Saturday 16th March 10am-12pm

  • Listening to recorded sound scapes from Small Voices Louder

  • Gathering ideas and planning designs of “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

2nd Workshop – Saturday 6th April 9am-12pm

  • Designing and beginning to construct “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

3rd Workshop – Saturday 4th May 9am-12pm

  • Finalising construction of “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

 

These three sessions are held with local artists Michelle Lucev and Megan Wood-Hill in the Red Earth Arts Precinct Rehearsal room.

If your child/children are able to attend, please register via email boxoffice@redearthartsprecinct.com.au or call into the Box Office from 9am-5pm weekdays.

Dan Sultan - Aviary Takes Tour

The Music presents

DAN SULTAN

Aviary Takes Tour

2018 has been a year of transition for Dan Sultan. Having taken 6 months off and out of the spotlight to recalibrate and steady the ship, he is now ready to take on a whole bunch of new, exciting and fresh challenges.

The first project to see the light of day in 2019 will be the aptly titled ‘AVIARY TAKES’, a collection of older, existing back catalogue songs and a smattering of new tracks including a couple of out-of-the-blue covers and fresh tunes stripped back and all recorded in ‘one vocal take’ at The Aviary Studio’s in inner city Melbourne.

The AVIARY TAKES collection will be released early in 2019 and to celebrate its release, Sultan will head back out on the road armed with a guitar, a keyboard and a fresh batch of anecdotes and bad ‘dad’ jokes!

The tour run sees Dan traverse the country in regional areas that he is both familiar and not so familiar with. 

Says Sultan; “I’m really looking forward to hitting the regional road with ‘The Aviary Takes’ tour. It’ll be good to make up for the shows I had to cancel earlier this year. ‘The Aviary Takes’ are a group of songs I recorded recently and they include old, current, new tracks with a couple of surprise covers thrown in. It’ll be great to see all of your lovely faces at the shows”.

Small Voices Louder

SVL_AW_014-by-Ben-Landau_edit-1200x382-c.jpg

In October 2018 a group of children participated in Small Voices Louder where they were asked to follow ribbons and sit or lie in little exhibition tents decorated to inspire their imaginations.  The participating children were then asked their opinions about some of the bigger issues in life, such as:

  • What do you worry about?

  • What do you hope for the future?

  • How are adults different to children?

  • How would you change the world for the better?

  • What is love?

 

This project is all about helping adults really hear children’s point of view.  The children’s answers were recorded and short 3 to 4 minute sound scapes have been created to reflect the views of children across WA, from Broome to Albany, including Karratha.

To learn more about the project, please go to the following link: https://vimeo.com/99899678

These sound scapes are going to be exhibited at the 2Hot Festival for Young People at the Red Earth Arts Precinct from 21st June until 1st July 2019. To help bring the sound scapes to life, we are inviting children to design and make “feel boxes” and “peep boxes” to accompany each sound scape.  These boxes will help bring the exhibition to life and provide both visual and tactile points of engagement for listeners.

 

1st Workshop – Saturday 16th March 10am-12pm

  • Listening to recorded sound scapes from Small Voices Louder

  • Gathering ideas and planning designs of “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

2nd Workshop – Saturday 6th April 9am-12pm

  • Designing and beginning to construct “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

3rd Workshop – Saturday 4th May 9am-12pm

  • Finalising construction of “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

 

These three sessions are held with local artists Michelle Lucev and Megan Wood-Hill in the Red Earth Arts Precinct Rehearsal room.

If your child/children are able to attend, please register via email boxoffice@redearthartsprecinct.com.au or call into the Box Office from 9am-5pm weekdays.
