Wagga Wagga’s Civic Theatre offers a full program for its 2021 Season 
March 1, 2021

Wagga Wagga’s Civic Theatre recently launched its 2021 subscription season offering audiences a full program with some of Australia’s leading companies, such as Bell Shakespeare and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, delivering performances, along with a more contemporary offering of improvised theatre and cabaret performances. Show tickets will be open to individual sales for general public from 17th March.

Civic Theatre Manager Carissa Campbell advises “2021 is all about exploration and adventure. We know that many travel plans have been disrupted this year, so we invite everyone to travel with us in 2021 and satisfy your wanderlust.”

In 2020, the Civic Theatre presented a short run of cabaret shows as part of Re-Ignite; a series of live performances to emerge from COVID closures and to keep local artists and arts staff employed.

Campbell explains “Initially it was a creative way for us to embrace and celebrate our reduced COVID Safe capacities; but it was so well received we are recreating our intimate cabaret lounge on the stage again this year.”

Voyagers is a cabaret, commissioned by the Civic Theatre, from Wagga Wagga writer and performer Andrew Strano, who has been living, working and studying in New York.

It was due to premiere as part of last year’s season but was postponed when the theatre was forced to cancel much of its 2020 calendar due to COVID-19.

Campbell enthuses “we are thrilled that we were able to reschedule Voyagers for August this year.

“Guests will be seated on the stage with drinks and antipasto platters. It will be spectacular!”

The 2021 Season offers plays including Bell Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Appleton Ladies Potato Race and Animal Farm, great music from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Opera Australia’s Carmen, dance from The Australian Ballet, improvised comedy with Jekyll & Hyde and the funny and beautiful play Every Brilliant Thing which tells its story with the help of the audience.
