The Events Centre, Caloundra  
Ballet lovers were enchanted as the Moscow Ballet La Classique brought Tchaikovsky’s score to life in Sleeping Beauty.
Established in 1990 by Elik Melikov, La Classique’s ballet skills, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets were a ticket for a mystical journey to the fairytale world of Princess Aurora. The storyline is a classic.
The two-act performance captured the imagination, passion and magic of Sleeping Beauty.

“You Must Remember This”  
Guests were treated to first rate entertainment when the Sunnybank Theatre Group presented the music of the war years.
The fun began in the foyer when the “Andrews Sisters” entertained guests while they enjoyed a pre-show drink. Pam Cooper who devised, wrote and directed the production, captured the poignancy of the times without dropping into the maudlin, by setting the music against the love story of Jack and Katie Delaney.
