Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella - Event Cinema at Byron Theatre
Saturday 2nd June at 1:00pm
Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella is a thrilling and evocative love story set in London during the Second World War. The internationally acclaimed choreographer’s interpretation of the classic fairy tale has, at its heart, a true war-time romance.
A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the horrors of the Blitz.
The sights and sounds of war-torn London are recreated by Lez Brotherston’s Olivier Award-winning costumes and sets, lighting by Olivier Award-winning Neil Austin, video and projection designs by Duncan McLean, and surround sound designed by Paul Groothuis. Matthew Bourne’s vivid story telling has never been more heart-stopping and touching, and will take the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score.
The present line up with Jak Housden on guitar, Warwick Hornby on bass and Terepai Richmond on drums has been together since 2001. They recorded the number 1 album Torch the Moon together in 2002 and the critically acclaimed Gold Album Little Cloud in 2006. They will play their usual long and rambunctious set covering music from throughout their entire career.

Melbourne City Ballet’s Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo re-imagines Carmen to Bizet’s famous score to bring to life an evocative opera ballet paying homage to the well known Spanish inspired tragedy.
Carmen tells the story of a city policeman, Don Jose, whose mother calls him to return home to marry childhood sweetheart, Micaela, but a chance encounter with the enchanting gypsy girl, Carmen, leads the pair into a relationship of both passion and destruction.
Pappalardo’s Carmen is designed to be a loud and bold affair, pulling the audience in from the first overture.
Alan Clements Uncensored: Spiritually Incorrect
Byron Theatre, 69 Jonson Street, Byron Bay
“Blend a former Buddhist monk with Noam Chomsky, Lenny Bruce, and a hyper-spiritual Terrence McKenna and you get a sense of Alan Clements’ hilarious, brilliant, and deliciously irreverent one-man performance.” Jon Woodhouse, The Maui News

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams NT Live Screening at Byron Theatre
On a steamy night in Mississippi, a Southern family gather at their cotton plantation to celebrate Big Daddy’s birthday. The scorching heat is almost as oppressive as the lies they tell. Brick and Maggie dance round the secrets and sexual tensions that threaten to destroy their marriage. With the future of the family at stake, which version of the truth is real – and which will win out?
Tennessee Williams’ twentieth century masterpiece, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the searing, poetic story of a family’s fight for survival, played a strictly limited season in London’s West End in 2017. Following his smash hit production of A Streetcar Named Desire, Benedict Andrews’ “thrilling revival” (New York Times) stars Sienna Miller as Maggie alongside Jack O’Connell as Brick and Colm Meaney as Big Daddy.
