Hobart's Theatre Royal anniversary celebration continues to entice visitors with a full production schedule.
The cultural hot spot has so far wowed audiences with performances from internationally renowned comedian Ross Nobel, as well a host of other big-name celebrities including The Wharf Revue.
British actress Miriam Margolyes is back in the country for the first time since her sell-out tour in 2007, with her own take on Charles Dickens' most engaging female characters.
On stage for two nights only – March 16 and 17 – Margolyes' preference for irreverent, thought provoking and colourful performances is sure to strike a chord with audiences.
But comedy is not the only dish on the menu at this cultural feast where decadence is a top priority.
Australian actor and playwright, Brendan Cowell, adds an element of sophistication to the line-up.
Cowell's Ruben Guthrie is an engaging twenty-something with ample career prospects, a perfect fiancee and the somewhat disturbing, albeit alcohol-induced, belief in his own ability to fly.
This award-winning play is on from March 22 to 31, presented by Tasmanian acting group Blue Cow, and will take on the directorial influence of Robert Jarman.
Opera, dance and cutting-edge art are on show in the month of April with stirring performances by some of the country's leading artists.
A sultry combination of fire, passion and seduction take to the stage in Melbourne Opera's April 14 production of Bizet's Carmen.
Prepare for a visual and auditory spectacular as you sway to the sound of the Toreador Song, Habanera, Seguidilla and Flower Song among others.
If descriptors like 'avant-garde', 'cutting-edge' and 'ground-breaking' are right up your alley then you will want to book tickets for Big hART's Namatijira.
Telling the story of Elea – one of Australia's most iconic Indigenous artists – who was born in central Australia at the turn of the last century, this is one of the Scott Rankin's most acclaimed productions.
