Whether you’re mad about music, devoted to drama, addicted to dance or crazy about comedy, Frankston Arts Centre has something for everyone in 2019. Each year FAC selects a variety of shows to ensure Peninsula audiences have access to world-class performances at affordable prices close to home. There are 36 new shows now on sale, and a ticket to one or more of them would make a brilliant Christmas gift for a family member, friend or workmate — or just to treat yourself.
All the big names are heading to Frankston in 2019 — Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Circus Oz, Sydney Dance Company, Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, Opera Australia and more — which means Peninsula audiences will be absolutely spoilt for choice.
A new element in FAC’s 2019 program is a series of contemporary theatre works held in the Black Box Theatre at Cube 37, next to the main theatre. The series will feature comedy, music, drama, story-telling and dance, including the premiere of No.33, an interactive theatre performance created in Frankston as part of the arts incubator program HATCH, in a more intimate setting.
Music features strongly in 2019, with tributes to David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Sam Cooke and a reimagined Beatles soundtrack by the talented Naomi Price. The drama The Sapphires will give audiences the chance to revisit the hit production, which tells the story of four Aboriginal women and their rise to fame.
So spoil your loved ones and give the gift of a theatre experience this Christmas. Tickets or gift cards can be purchased in person at the FAC box office, over the phone on 9784 1060 or online at thefac.com.au
