Magic, Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts Come to Gosford in September

Two new shows bring theatrical magic and old fashioned storytelling to Laycock Street Community Theatre this September.

On Saturday 19 September 2015, The Marvels of Magic showcases the talent of Elio Simonetti, one of Australia’s most inventive and artistic magicians. Whilst from 15 until 17 September 2015, the critically acclaimed Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts will be in Gosford as part of its five-month national tour.

Adapted for the stage by the award-winning shake & stir theatre co, Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts combines two of Dahl’s most famous and best-loved books. In perfect Dahl tradition, it promises to delight and disgust in equal measures.

Featuring immersive lighting, dance, song, shadow puppetry and four of the country’s best comic actors, it brings over 40 characters to life.

Gosford City Council’s Director of Community Growth Judy Jaeger said this show is going to be a real treat.

“Roald Dahl is one of the world’s greatest storytellers. This show takes some of our best-loved fairy tales and rearranges them with unexpected and hilarious twists,” Ms Jaeger said.

“If you think you know the stories of The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Goldilocks and Jack and the Beanstalk, this show is going to make you think again.”

Seriously funny and frighteningly silly, Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts is the perfect family entertainment for children five and upwards.

Equally entertaining is Marvels of Magic which brings magic and mayhem to the stage with world renowned Master of Mystery Elio Simonetti.

A visually stunning show, Marvels of Magic will astound, astonish and amuse the whole family.
