Festival of talent to shine at Kyogle
A PACKED program is in place for the Perform Kyogle festival to be held on the weekend of September 13 and 14.
An initiative of the Village Hall Players, the festival offers a choice of quality theatre, as well as musical and creative arts events.
Highlights include productions of In This Waking Hour by Michael Lill, and Pesadillas by Jordan Coote-Shortis, both award winners in the recent VHP Inaugural Playwrights' Competition.
Perform Kyogle also offers a diverse musical program to cater for a broad range of tastes. The Sunday morning Light Classical program features a Capella group, The Treble Makers; classical guitar trio, Totally Plucked; and Soprano Forte featuring soprano Jenny Strever and pianist Tom Fitzgerald. Tickets for this program, sponsored by the Kyogle and District Arts Council, are just $10.
All-girl super-group, The Pimmadonnas, and youth band, Elemental, will be other highlight acts during this jam-packed weekend.
On Saturday morning, spend an hour or two wandering among creative artists demonstrating skills in felt-making, basket- weaving, sculpting, card- making and painting.
All events take place in the Kyogle Memorial Institute Hall, Stratheden St, Kyogle from 10am each day.
