SCHOOL holidays are a time to explore and try new things.
It’s also great if you can get the kids out of the house to enjoy activities that are stimulating and don’t cost the week’s food budget.
Hall-A-Day Adventures are just that!
In the school holidays the Wagga City Council’s Civic Theatre and Museum of the Riverina will visit four local villages with a theatrical performance and activities for children.
There are two shows each day and tickets are only $5 each or $4 each if you’re bringing a group of four or more.
The show you’ll see is The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe which is an adaptation of the timeless story by CS Lewis, dramatized by le Clanche du Rand.
Join Peter and Lucy as they recount their courageous story of fantasy and adventure, teaming up with the mighty Aslan to save the world of Narnia from the icy grip of the white witch.
After the show, discover Wagga’s stories through the Museum of the Riverina’s collection.
So factor Hall-A-Day Adventures into your school holiday planning.
It’s in the second week of the school holidays and the villages we will be visiting are Uranquinty on Tuesday, Oura on Wednesday, Collingullie on Thursday and Ladysmith on Friday.
It’s a good idea to pre-purchase your tickets as last year’s Hall-A-Day Adventure, The Magic Story Coat, was incredibly popular and quickly sold out.
Tickets are available from the Civic Theatre at www.civictheatre.com.au or phone 6926 9688.
Tickets will be available at the venue on the day, unless they are sold out.
JUNE has had a very strong beanie focus for both the Civic Theatre and the Wagga Art Gallery.
There have been workshops and exhibitions and tonight there is the performance of Head Full of Love.
The Annual Alice Springs Beanie Festival is fast approaching and Tilly Napuljari is running out of time to finish her new creation and enter it for judging.
Nessa Tavistock, a Sydneysider, has run away to the Red Centre to escape her own problems back in the big smoke.
With time and talk, they realise that despite their differences in language, surroundings and upbringing, they are not so different after all. In making their beanie together, Tilly and Nessa’s stories become entwined and made into a thing of beauty - row by row, colour by colour, yarn by yarn.
Head Full of Love is the story of these two remarkable women and the unlikely but inspiring friendship which forms between them.
It invites you to look differently at the possibilities of the humble beanie: a much-loved everyday item, and an extension of ourselves and the everyday lives we wear.
Wesley Enoch directs this intricate, warm and wisely told tale by Australian playwright Alana Valentine (Run Rabbit Run, Parramatta Girls).
Please make plans to come early as the Colours of Country III exhibition will be open at the art gallery from 6.30pm until the show starts at 7.30pm.
There is also a mini exhibition of beanies travelling with the show on display in the foyer of the theatre.
Tickets will be available at the box office tonight from 6.45pm or online at www.civictheatre.com.au.
Student rush tickets are available for just $15 online or at the door and identification will be required for ticket collection.
