7 Dec 2017

Take a walk on the WILD side in the New Year with fabulous stars, music and theatre coming to the Whitehorse Centre for Season 2018, with the full program launched today.

Whitehorse Councillor Raylene Carr said the theme of Season 2018 – Whitehorse Centre’s 20th season –  was “Wild”, and some of the biggest names in Australian show business would grace the Whitehorse Centre stage.

“There is a fabulous line up of musicals, comedy and drama coming our way, including great shows for children. Nadine Garner, Bobby Fox, Phillip Gould, Nancye Hayes and Todd McKenney are just some of the stars performing in the new season,” Cr Carr said.

Highlights of Season 2018 include:

Four Seasons in One Night. Bobby Fox opens the season with this return of the sell-out hit. A celebration of the incredible music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

A Little Night Music. Nadine Garner stars in this Stephen Sondheim musical. Featuring a lush score, this romantic tour-de-force is both heartbreaking and uplifting.

The Wharf Revue 2018. Exclusive to the Whitehorse Centre. The punchlines keep rolling in as the kings of comedy and sorcerers of satire, Jonathan Biggins and Drew Forsythe, treat audiences to a fresh look at Australian politics.

Hart. Using testimonials from the Stolen Generations, Noongar man Ian Michael invites you to listen in on the silenced stories of his country.

Bosom Buddies. A new show from old friends Nancye Hayes and Todd McKenney. The pair reflect on their stage careers and their lives off stage as well!

Hotel Sorrento. Australian playwright Hannie Rayson takes audiences on a wonderful journey of humour and drama that tells the story of three sisters who grew up together in seaside Sorrento.

Some Enchanted Evening. World renowned flautist Jane Rutter joins Opera Australia’s soprano Taryn Fiebig and baritone Jud Arthur to present the stunning music of Mozart, Massenet, Offenbach, Puccini and others.

Jurassica. A story of family, migration, language and growing old. A heart-warming tale, told with humour and pathos and spoken in both English and Italian.

From Johnny to Jack. Australian vocal superstar Luke Kennedy (The Voice, The Ten Tenors, Swing On This) and his world-class band showcase the life and music of Australian icon John Farnham.

Cole. Helpmann award winner Michael Griffiths explores the colourful life and timeless songs of Cole Porter including You’re The Top, It’s De-Lovely, Let’s Do It and Night And Day.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show. Based on Eric Carle’s hit books, this show for the whole family takes favourite characters and masterfully transfers them to stage.

“Patrons can see shows of an amazing quality at the Whitehorse Centre without tackling CBD traffic and paying city parking and ticket prices. Sit back and relax close to home as you enjoy world-class theatre and music,” Cr Carr said.

The unveiling of the 2018 program opens the priority booking period for subscriptions. Those who subscribe in the next few weeks have the advantage of selecting their choice of shows before individual ticket sales open to the public on Friday 5 January 2018. Patrons who subscribe by this date will secure the best available seats to some of the best shows in town.
