Two sleeps until roadshow!

We’re getting pretty excited here at the Manning Entertainment Centre, with a gaggle of comedians due to arrive the day after tomorrow for the 2017 Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow. 

The line-up has something for everyone with Daniel Connell as your MC, Adam Hess fresh from the UK, the hilarious Tessa Watts, festival favourite David Quirk (pictured) and tons of laughs from Dilruk Jaysinha. 

It’s always a great night out, and what better way to escape from the doom and gloom of the relentlessly grim news cycle than to spend a couple of hours laughing yourself stupid? 

You are cordially invited to do just that on Friday night from 7.30. Book online at www.theMEC.com.au, or give us a call between 10am and 1pm on 6592 5466 (and don’t forget our ticket outlet at Stockland Forster during business hours seven days a week!)

Daniel Radcliffe, Tom Stoppard join forces

Our next OnScreen film is an absolute ripper.  Daniel Radcliffe and Joshua McGuire bring the bit part characters from Hamlet alive in “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” by Tom Stoppard. 

This multi award-winning play celebrates it’s 50th anniversary this year, and it’s lost none of it’s bite and humour over the past 50 years. We’ll be screening this gem on Tuesday June 27, with sessions at 10am and 7pm, with special prices for Friends of the MEC, Friends of the Gallery and Taree Film Society members.
