August 15    WINTER SOIREE

September 12    Script Reading: “The World Without Birds”

December 5


This year our PAGE TO STAGE season of new work will run from Oct 24 – Nov 13.


Members are welcome to attend this script read-through of the selected play for our Page to Stage 2016 season, The World Without Birds by Christine Croyden. The reading will be of a technical nature, and will not include any of the musical, theatrical or performance elements that audiences will enjoy in the final production. The World Without Birds will feature Margot Knight (below) as the Queen.


A Musical Fable

24th Oct – 6th Nov at La Mama Courthouse

When a kooky Queen of the Birds meets two young COCKtails at the theatre she realises she’s about to fall from her perch, and possibly even face extinction. Together with her younger self, a chirpy songbird and notorious party girl, she embarks on a wild musical ride that takes them from disco to Weimer style cabaret and back again. A darkly comic tale of creativity, ageing and finding grace as we’re replaced by the next generation.

Written by Christine Croyden

with music by Ella Filar

Directed by Elizabeth Walley
