What's On At The Civic Theatre This Month

This month enjoy a visit to the Civic Theatre for some great entertainment, including Stardust and The Mission. In this award-winning double bill, you'll meet two ordinary individuals whose extraordinary lives still reverberate to this day.


Stardust tells the story of bandleader and trumpet player Col Brain. Before he died, Col placed his most prized life possessions into a cupboard and locked it up, never to be opened again. But what was inside? Told by his grandson, award-winning ABC presenter and performer, Joel Carnegie, Stardust is a heartwarming musical quest to uncover what Col wanted us to know about his life by the things he left behind.

The Mission follows "Fighting Gunditjmara" man Allan McDonald off to war. As one of the first Aboriginal soldiers from Victoria to enlist, Allan fought at Gallipoli and Beersheba, only to be denied a soldier's settlement upon return and forced from his traditional land. Told by his great, great nephew, acclaimed Gunditjmara actor Tom Molyneux, The Mission tells the truth of Uncle Allan's struggle; fighting for country, for love, and for justice. Stardust and The Mission also features musicians from local band Waratah Brass on stage playing jazz/brass.

Also coming soon is Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre in May. Witness one of the most iconic pieces of English literature retold in a faithful yet fiercely original new stage adaptation from the nationally-renowned shake and stir theatre co (Animal Farm, Dracula).

This stunning new production, featuring original music written by multi-ARIA Award winner Sarah McLeod, will set a fire blazing in your soul.


The Civic Theatre will be offering a brand-new alfresco dining experience alongside selected shows from April. Enjoy a specially curated menu designed for the Theatre experience. So whether you are attending a show or a date night, join us to reignite your love for all things cultural. Bookings online.
