On May 5th, professional artists from Curious Legends will be working with participants from the Newcastle Community to create a large scale street theatre performance. Taking place in Civic Park at 5pm, the performance will include Aboriginal dreamtime stories, giant puppets, ghosts, and multimedia projections. There will be food, coffee, and a big grassy lawn – so bring your picnic rugs and settle in for the evening!

To perform with us, come to one of our open rehearsals, then show up early on the night of the performance. There’s lots to do – you might be holding a puppet, spearing a fish, launching a torpedo, or helping a pelican to fly! All ages are welcome, and joining in is free.

Open Rehearsals
Dates: May 2nd & 3rd
Times: 4pm to 6m
Location: Civic Park, Newcastle
Cost: Free!
