On 10 December a new theatre group, Loose Connections, will present a musical Christmas Show from 7pm to 9pm at the Baptist Church in Tea Gardens.
The unique event showcases a moving production of ‘The Christmas Truce’ and a reinterpretation of Carlo Menotti’s ‘Amahl and the Night Visitors’.
Written and directed by Brian Jones, The Christmas Truce tells the story of the time during WW1 when hostilities stopped long enough for a game of football.
This moving tribute has been performed before, and to wide acclaim.
Amahl and the Night Visitors was written by Carlo Menotti in 1952.
Directed by Diane Williams, this one-act opera tells the story of Amahl, a crippled boy, and his mother who are visited by the Magi on their way to find the Christ child.
With beautiful music and a very talented local cast this is an ideal first time opera, and is suitable for the whole family.
Tickets are $10 per person and available at the door.
