Gold Coast Little Theatre

‘Koliki je ovo repa?’ That’s ‘How much is this turnip?’ in Bosnian, and a little taste of the Gold Coast Little Theatre’s 2011 production of Eurobeat: Almost Eurovision. But if gloriously camp satires are all you’re expecting from the Gold Coast’s oldest theatre, you’re sadly mistaken. Every year, around the time winter has us permanently resigned to flannies and Grey’s Anatomy boxed sets, this theatre warms our toes with their annual program of one-act micro plays by the likes of Harold Pinter and Chekov – all with snappy changeovers and sellout crowds. The last few seasons of full-length plays have been peppered with quality Aussie scripts like Gordon Graham’s The Boys, an Aussie drama following three brothers accused of a heinous crime, and David Williamson’s Travelling North. The colourful and stirring theatrical experience of Fiddler on the Roof will run through all of September, then the  funny, poignant and uplifting production of Calendar Girls closes the year, running from 17 November to 8 December.
