Season launch and 30th anniversary tomorrow
You’re invited to the launch of our 2019 Season and 30th anniversary celebrations at the Manning Entertainment Centre tomorrow night from 6pm to 8pm.
Come and raise a glass with us as we reveal the exciting shows we have coming in the first six months of the new year, as well as celebrating thirty great years of entertainment on the Mid Coast.
There’ll be some familiar faces from the past popping in to say hi and join the celebrations, and we’re very pleased to be sharing the plans for our new 100 seat studio with a very special presentation on site.
Admission is free, and we’ll be providing some light refreshments, so if you would like to join us please just give us a call on 6592 5466 for catering purposes.
We’d love to see you and can’t wait to reveal next year’s program!
Oz Ballet’s “Merry Widow” on film
Our final OnScreen film for the year is the ever popular ballet for the ages: The Merry Widow, performed by The Australian Ballet.
Screening at 10am and 7pm on Tuesday, December 11, this beautiful ballet is a firm favourite with ballet fans and novices alike.
Irresistibly frothy and lavishly theatrical, The Merry Widow has enough tangled affairs, narrow misses and jealous lovers to fuel a French farce. Based on the beloved operetta, this lively tale is set in the ballrooms and salons of Belle Époque Paris and is dressed magnificently in velvets, silks, spangles and feathers.
Created especially for The Australian Ballet and captured live at the Sydney Opera House, The Merry Widow is a laugh-along favourite with hum-along melodies and its heart on its sleeve.
Teachers’ info evening a great success
Last Thursday our Teachers’ Information Session, held at the Manning Regional Art Gallery, was a great success.
Public projects officer Ali Haigh organised the evening in order to get our local educators together to discuss ways in which we can best serve local school communities through the shows and exhibitions coming in 2019.
The assembled teachers were very enthusiastic in sharing ideas about how we can connect and we look forward to enacting some of the suggestions in the new school year.
If you would like further information on how your school can be involved please contact Ali here at the Manning Entertainment Centre or at the gallery.
