The Manning Entertainment Centre has released its new season guide, with 29 different performances from around the globe on stage from July to December.
In early July, the entertainment kicks off with the Elton John and Billy Joel Experience. The performers sit at pianos side by side and belt out tunes you know and love.
Late July brings performances for families. This includes the talented Shake & Stir Theatre Company's rendition of The Twits and The Victorian State Ballet's classical rendition of The Little Mermaid.
