Coming Home

January 18th, 2016

FIRST SHOW FOR 2016!

On Feb 13 1916, an army of volunteer builders and labourers gathered in Kalgoorlie St, in the new suburb of Mount Hawthorn. Their mission? To build in one day a very fine brick and tile cottage from donated materials as the first community memorial in Western Australia to the Gallipoli landings. The local council gifted the cottage to the first returned wounded serviceman from that conflict, John Porter, and his young family.

100 years later, on February 13th 2016, Agelink celebrates the event with a free performance at Braithwaite Park, Mt Hawthorn, of COMING HOME by Jenny Davis.

Starring Alinta Carroll, Renee Chapple, Rebecca Davis, Stuart Halusz, Oliver Haluszkiewicz, Saskia Haluszkiewicz, Craig Skelton and Zac Skelton, COMING HOME tells the story of the cottage and its occupants.

Bring a rug and a picnic and enjoy also the music of the Mount Hawthorn Primary school choir and be thoroughly entertained by the evening’s wonderful guest artist – JAMES BLUNDELL!

6.30-9.30 pm Braithwaite Park, Scarborough Beach Rd, Mount Hawthorn

A Very Australian Christmas by Jenny Davis

A Very Australian Christmas

A VERY AUSTRALIAN CHRISTMAS  by Jenny Davis & Jenny McNae      Agelink Theatre presents from the Golden Age of Radio…. 

A COLONIAL CHRISTMAS CAROL (with apologies to Dickens)

A delightful Christmas show of comedy, drama and music recreating the excitement of the early days of live to audience radio drama , when sound effects were inventive and resourceful and actors really on their toes……

Starring celebrated senior performers Bernie Davis, Jenny Davis and Jenny McNae along with the songbird Alinta Carroll and master of the piano keys and the comic turn, Craig Skelton

It is Christmas 1865 and a group of ex-convicts decorating Perth’s Government House dream up an entertainment as a surprise for a Christmas party attended by the Governor. They hit on the idea of dramatising Charles Dickens’ recently published, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, and a rehearsal begins.

Will the Governor be entertained, will he even approve? Will it be, as Ebenezer Scrooge says, “Christmas, humbug!” ? Can this group of enthusiastic amateurs actually pull it off?

This play within a play within a play will keep you laughing and chortling and fill you with the magic of Christmas and festive cheer. The coconut shells are ready to clip clop, the carollers are at hand and the madness begins……..
