BITS & PIECES

‘Bits and Pieces’ is going to be exactly what it sounds like, a song from this show and a song from that show - plus a few more. Being thrown into lockdown and having to cancel most gigs gave John and Debi time to work on a few different projects that they had wanted to do for a while. John started work on a project based on the music of Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, while Debi explored a bit of Olivia Newton-John. Much of this stemmed from 'Blast Your Past!' a show they never got to perform last year. They’ve decided to throw in all the ‘bits and pieces’ that they had been working on along with some of your favourite classics from Cher, Neil Diamond and timeless musicals and have come up with this one off special performance. ‘Bits and Pieces’ will contain something for everyone so come and join John and Debi for a night of fun, friendly banter and a sing-a-long…if you dare. Ticket Price: Adult $25, Concession $20. Note: Ticket price will have a booking fee added at the checkout. The advertised price is the price that you will pay. HPAC COVID Guidelines

The Merger

Now an acclaimed feature film adaptation starring Damian Callinan, Kate Mulvany and John Howard - Callinan returns to the stage with the one man tour de force that inspired the OzFlix Best Film, Cinema Australia Audience Awarded and dual AACTA nominated ‘instant classic’ (Film Blerg). In this Barry Award nominated classic, Damian brings to life Bodgy Creek: a township that has seen better days. The mill's closed; the Tidy Town sign has fallen into the long grass and no-one knows why the Christmas Market happens in September. The dying town is about to claim its next victim: the footy club. The dysfunctional Bodgy Creek Roosters Footy Club is in trouble and will either have to fold or merge with their arch rivals - the Hudson’s Flat Cougars. But prodigal son coach Troy Carrington has other ideas; to save the club he embarks on a programme to recruit refugees and unwittingly takes the community on a journey of change. Fans of the film will watch beguiled as Callinan deftly plays every role and proves that he is ‘one of Australia’s finest character comedians’ (Herald Sun). The performance will be held in the Balmoral Mechanics Hall. Doors will open at 6.30pm so come early and avoid the contact tracing queue. Drinks at bar prices will be available and complimentary light nibbles.
