Ella Hooper

TUESDAY 21 MAY, 7.30PM 

HIT Productions & HPAC present Ella Hooper 

Teen prodigy to ARIA success. 

Ella Hooper was still a teenager when she burst onto the Australian music scene. Unearthed by Triple J when she was just 13, Ella scored her first number one with the single ‘Mascara’ on her 17th birthday. And at 18, she became the first woman to be awarded APRA’s Songwriter of the Year. 

After releasing three hit albums with Killing Heidi, Ella embarked on a solo career. Her forthcoming album, Small Town Temple – written in her hometown of Violet Town – has been hailed as a new beginning, showcasing Ella’s deeply personal song writing. After a multitude of gold and platinum records and four ARIA Awards, Ella remains committed to her craft. As she sings on Small Town Temple: “Still strong, still on a mission.” 

Support Act: Melody Pool

Opening the show is critically acclaimed singer songwriter, Melody Pool. Hailing from Kurri Kurri NSW, Melody has captured the hearts of discerning listeners both in Australia and overseas, touring with luminaries like the Milk Carton Kids and The Eagles. As Melody approaches the release of her greatly anticipated third album, she will join Ella for the entire tour.

Ella and Melody are longtime collaborators and friends and they revel in the chance to bring to the stage the heart and soul of their connection. Melody will not only open the show but join Ella for the close, bringing the soaring harmonies she is known for to Ella’s most powerful songs and a few covers of their favourite artists classics to boot.

Tash York's Happy Hour

SATURDAY 1 JUNE, 7.30PM 

Big Hair Productions & HPAC present Tash York’s Happy Hour 

The Trash Queen of Cabaret Tash York is determined to find out what makes us happy. Is it finishing that 3rd bottle of wine? Staying up until 3am because you don’t want the night to end? Buying yet another cat? (She has 3 already you know…)

After two years lost to the global panini, Tash York’s Happy Hour is set to thrill you even more than a half-price wine list. Tash unapologetically drinks a pool of wine, practices self-care, slays her insecurities, and makes the effort to make sure everyone leaves their troubles at the door. Backed by her boozy music makers and backing singers The Red Red Wines (Peppy Smears & Vivian Fonteyn) expect powerful three- part harmonies, hilarious true stories, improvised numbers and of course Australia’s favourite game - Goon of Fortune!

Don’t let the makeup, wigs and costumes fool you; Tash York is as bogan as they come. Celebrated with countless awards and glowing reviews, Happy Hour combines Drag and Cabaret in a way unlike any other - Think Meow Meow meets Bianca Del Rio but on a budget! Your Hostess with the Mostess (wine) Tash York is a multi-award-winning cabaret artist who has been touring the world with her hit solo shows and is also celebrated Emcee of The After-Hours Cabaret Club, The Australian Burlesque Festival and Briefs: Sweatshop.

Grug

TUESDAY 2 JULY, 11AM & 2PM

Windmill Theatre Company & HPAC present Grug

Join Grug on this amazing journey!

Grug began his life as the top of a Burrawang tree that fell to the ground. Resembling a small, striped haystack with feet and a nose, Grug is fascinated by the world around him and solves everyday problems creatively and without fuss.

When dancing instructions are too difficult to understand, he invents his own dance and calls it ‘The Grug’. When snails eat his cabbages, Grug plants more cabbages so there will be enough for both him and the snails.

Having performed to more than 50,000 children and families worldwide, Grug is perfect for our youngest theatre lovers.

Looking for something different for the kids during school holidays? Then this is it.

Suitable ages: 2 - 6 years

A Little Bit of Blue

FRIDAY 12 JULY, 11AM & 3PM

Little Wing Puppets & HPAC present A Little bit of Blue

A Detective Story, told with Puppetry, where you help solve the case.

A Little Bit of Blue is an interactive environmental detective story, told with puppetry. As well as unravelling a mystery, it involves learning about the unique habits of an extraordinary Australian animal, the Satin Bowerbird, and their fascination for the colour blue. It is a fun frolicking mix of Detective Noir, slapstick, with some interesting facts thrown in.

Mavis’s world is turned upside-down by small disappearances. Something has gone missing and is nowhere to be found. Mrs Hooley has been looking everywhere. But it’s not just today. Every day a new thing seems to disappear. Little things. A $10 note. Clothes pegs. A ball of wool. It’s troubling at first, but the thief then takes it one step too far.

Mavis calls in a Detective to investigate. The Detective, Harry McGee, an adorable fool, makes a mess of the investigation, and the children love always being one step of ahead of him. They set a trap for the burglar. A stake out is required. In the dead of night, and the Detective indeed finds something peculiar.... The children’s role is to help him solve the case.

Jenny Ellis, a puppeteer of more than twenty years, weaves the whole mystery together, sometimes playing three characters at once. The young audience will gasp with surprise, sigh with the sadness, shout in outrage, cheer with triumph, and dance with joy as they follow the sneaky bowerbird on his journey to find love.

Looking for an interactive and fun end to the school holidays? This is it.

The Peasant Prince

THURSDAY 15 AUGUST, 6.15PM & FRIDAY 16 AUGUST, 10AM & 2PM 

Monkey Baa Theatre Company & HPAC present The Peasant Prince 

Based on the book by Li Cunxin, Illustrated by Anne Spudvilas.
Adapted for the stage by Eva Di Cesare, Sandie Eldridge and Tim McGarry
Cast: Agnes Choi, Jonathan Lim, Gerwin Widjaja and Alan Zhu. 

Monkey Baa is thrilled to announce the return of its award-winning production The Peasant Prince in 2024. The children’s version of Li Cunxin’s iconic autobiography, Mao’s Last Dancer, The Peasant Prince is an extraordinary production of a remarkable story – of a peasant boy turned dance giant. It will inspire and enthral young audiences. 

 “You have your secret dreams. Follow them. Make them come true.” -From The Peasant Prince by Li Cunxin 

The Peasant Prince tells the remarkable true story of a 10-year-old peasant boy’s journey from impoverished rural China to the international dance scene. This is a story of courage, resilience and unwavering hope. 

Li, a 10-year old peasant boy is plucked from his village in rural China and sent to a ballet academy in the big city. He leaves everything and everyone he loves, including his family. Over years of gruelling training, this boy transforms from an impoverished peasant to a giant of the international dance scene. Li’s courage, resilience and unwavering hope for a better life for himself and his family makes The Peasant Prince a story to ignite our own aspirations to be the best person we can be. Audiences will be captivated by this very personal story, truly a 20th century fairy tale. 

Monkey Baa's extraordinary production won Best Production at The Glugs and The Sydney Theatre Awards and a Drover's Award for the Best Tour in 2016.

Simply Brill

FRIDAY 15 NOVEMBER, 7.30PM

Nicholas Clark Management & HPAC present Simply Brill

Get ready for a memorable night of rock!

The story begins in The Brill Building – a solitary building in the heart of downtown New York City. How did one single building redefine the musical landscape and become a ‘one stop shop’ hit factory in just a few short years? And how did previously unheard-of teenagers ‘steal’ rock n roll, creating a wave of hits that would be sung by all generations, right across the globe for years to come?

Theatrically presented, Simply Brill – with its dynamic blend of history, humor and heart – takes audiences on a thrilling ride from the humble beginnings of the music business in Tin Pan Alley, through to the dawn of the singer songwriter, via the game-changing explosion of rock ‘n’ roll.

‘Simply Brill’ dramatically retells the birth of iconic songwriters such as Bill Hayley & The Comets, Neil Sedaka, Bobby Darin, Carole King, Cynthia Weil, and Ellie Greenwich. These up and coming teenage songwriters gave voice to an entire generation with hits such as Rock Around The Clock, Splish Splash, Oh Carol, Will You Love Me Tomorrow?, You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling, River Deep Mountain High, and Leader of the Pack and more – all sublimely recreated with the vocal brilliance of Amelia, Michaela and Michael and a live 5 piece band.

Join ‘Simply Brill’ for a rollicking homage to some of the most popular songs of the 20th century and the songwriters who made them happen.

Opening the show is critically acclaimed singer songwriter, Melody Pool. Hailing from Kurri Kurri NSW, Melody has captured the hearts of discerning listeners both in Australia and overseas, touring with luminaries like the Milk Carton Kids and The Eagles. As Melody approaches the release of her greatly anticipated third album, she will join Ella for the entire tour.

Ella and Melody are longtime collaborators and friends and they revel in the chance to bring to the stage the heart and soul of their connection.

SATURDAY 1 JUNE, 7.30PM

The Trash Queen of Cabaret Tash York is determined to find out what makes us happy. Is it finishing that 3rd bottle of wine? Staying up until 3am because you don’t want the night to end? Buying yet another cat? (She has 3 already you know…)

After two years lost to the global panini, Tash York’s Happy Hour is set to thrill you even more than a half-price wine list. Tash unapologetically drinks a pool of wine, practices self-care, slays her insecurities, and makes the effort to make sure everyone leaves their troubles at the door. Backed by her boozy music makers and backing singers The Red Red Wines (Peppy Smears & Vivian Fonteyn) expect powerful three- part harmonies, hilarious true stories, improvised numbers and of course Australia’s favourite game - Goon of Fortune!

Don’t let the makeup, wigs and costumes fool you; Tash York is as bogan as they come.

Your Hostess with the Mostess (wine) Tash York is a multi-award-winning cabaret artist who has been touring the world with her hit solo shows and is also celebrated Emcee of The After-Hours Cabaret Club, The Australian Burlesque Festival and Briefs: Sweatshop.

When dancing instructions are too difficult to understand, he invents his own dance and calls it ‘The Grug’. When snails eat his cabbages, Grug plants more cabbages so there will be enough for both him and the snails.

Having performed to more than 50,000 children and families worldwide, Grug is perfect for our youngest theatre lovers.

A Little Bit of Blue

FRIDAY 12 JULY, 11AM & 3PM

Little Wing Puppets & HPAC present A Little bit of Blue

A Detective Story, told with Puppetry, where you help solve the case.

A Little Bit of Blue is an interactive environmental detective story, told with puppetry. As well as unravelling a mystery, it involves learning about the unique habits of an extraordinary Australian animal, the Satin Bowerbird, and their fascination for the colour blue. It is a fun frolicking mix of Detective Noir, slapstick, with some interesting facts thrown in.

Mavis’s world is turned upside-down by small disappearances. Something has gone missing and is nowhere to be found. Mrs Hooley has been looking everywhere. But it’s not just today. Every day a new thing seems to disappear. Little things. A $10 note. Clothes pegs. A ball of wool. It’s troubling at first, but the thief then takes it one step too far.

Mavis calls in a Detective to investigate. The Detective, Harry McGee, an adorable fool, makes a mess of the investigation, and the children love always being one step of ahead of him. They set a trap for the burglar. A stake out is required. In the dead of night, and the Detective indeed finds something peculiar.... The children’s role is to help him solve the case.

Jenny Ellis, a puppeteer of more than twenty years, weaves the whole mystery together, sometimes playing three characters at once. The young audience will gasp with surprise, sigh with the sadness, shout in outrage, cheer with triumph, and dance with joy as they follow the sneaky bowerbird on his journey to find love.

Looking for an interactive and fun end to the school holidays? This is it.

The Peasant Prince

THURSDAY 15 AUGUST, 6.15PM & FRIDAY 16 AUGUST, 10AM & 2PM 

Monkey Baa Theatre Company & HPAC present The Peasant Prince 

Based on the book by Li Cunxin, Illustrated by Anne Spudvilas.
Adapted for the stage by Eva Di Cesare, Sandie Eldridge and Tim McGarry
Cast: Agnes Choi, Jonathan Lim, Gerwin Widjaja and Alan Zhu. 

Monkey Baa is thrilled to announce the return of its award-winning production The Peasant Prince in 2024. The children’s version of Li Cunxin’s iconic autobiography, Mao’s Last Dancer, The Peasant Prince is an extraordinary production of a remarkable story – of a peasant boy turned dance giant. It will inspire and enthral young audiences. 

 “You have your secret dreams. Follow them. Make them come true.” -From The Peasant Prince by Li Cunxin 

The Peasant Prince tells the remarkable true story of a 10-year-old peasant boy’s journey from impoverished rural China to the international dance scene. This is a story of courage, resilience and unwavering hope. 

Li, a 10-year old peasant boy is plucked from his village in rural China and sent to a ballet academy in the big city. He leaves everything and everyone he loves, including his family. Over years of gruelling training, this boy transforms from an impoverished peasant to a giant of the international dance scene. Li’s courage, resilience and unwavering hope for a better life for himself and his family makes The Peasant Prince a story to ignite our own aspirations to be the best person we can be. Audiences will be captivated by this very personal story, truly a 20th century fairy tale. 

Monkey Baa's extraordinary production won Best Production at The Glugs and The Sydney Theatre Awards and a Drover's Award for the Best Tour in 2016.

Simply Brill

FRIDAY 15 NOVEMBER, 7.30PM

Nicholas Clark Management & HPAC present Simply Brill

Get ready for a memorable night of rock!

The story begins in The Brill Building – a solitary building in the heart of downtown New York City. How did one single building redefine the musical landscape and become a ‘one stop shop’ hit factory in just a few short years? And how did previously unheard-of teenagers ‘steal’ rock n roll, creating a wave of hits that would be sung by all generations, right across the globe for years to come?

Theatrically presented, Simply Brill – with its dynamic blend of history, humor and heart – takes audiences on a thrilling ride from the humble beginnings of the music business in Tin Pan Alley, through to the dawn of the singer songwriter, via the game-changing explosion of rock ‘n’ roll.

‘Simply Brill’ dramatically retells the birth of iconic songwriters such as Bill Hayley & The Comets, Neil Sedaka, Bobby Darin, Carole King, Cynthia Weil, and Ellie Greenwich. These up and coming teenage songwriters gave voice to an entire generation with hits such as Rock Around The Clock, Splish Splash, Oh Carol, Will You Love Me Tomorrow?, You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling, River Deep Mountain High, and Leader of the Pack and more – all sublimely recreated with the vocal brilliance of Amelia, Michaela and Michael and a live 5 piece band.

Join ‘Simply Brill’ for a rollicking homage to some of the most popular songs of the 20th century and the songwriters who made them happen.
