Based on the Novel by: Tracy Farr
Stage adaptation and Directed by: Andrew Hale
Performed by: 2nd Year Acting students

Iris's family – her ex-husband with his new wife and baby; her son, and her best friend's daughter – gather to pack up their holiday house. They are there for one last time, one last weekend, and one last party – but in the course of this weekend, their connections will be affirmed, and their frailties and secrets revealed. Adapted from Tracy Farr's novel and directed by local actor/writer/director Andrew Hale, The Hope Fault is a story about familial connections and fault lines, and why the debris of a well-lived life matters.

WAAPA in conjunction with the Minderoo Foundation and Fremantle Press proudly presents the premiere of this riveting new Western Australian play.

In 1969, The Scratch Orchestra sprang into being in London. Led by Cornelius Cardew, this experimental music ensemble spent the next five years challenging the ideas of what it is to be a composer, a musician, an audience, an amateur or an expert. This grand experiment in collective music-making allowed anyone to join, used graphic scores, and emphasised free improvisation. Fifty years on, WAAPA's Composition and Music Technology students celebrate the zany, shape-shifting world of The Scratch Orchestra.

This jumping, jiving rockabilly musical from John Waters Hairspray is a rebellious teen comedy about 1950s bad-boy Wade 'Cry-Baby' Walker and his good-girl love, Allison. In  a world of stuffy social codes, family secrets and puritanical values, can these two ever be happy together?

Description

Crowned as ‘the funniest woman on Instagram’ by Vogue in 2018, actor, comedian and social media superstar Celeste Barber is the self-proclaimed empress of everyday sophistication and low budget lifestyle aspirations applauded by 5.8 million-plus followers.

The happily married mother of two boys and evil stepmother of two girls began the hashtag #celestechallengeaccepted in 2015 as a fun experiment to see what it would look like for an average person to photograph themselves doing rich people things.
Her meteoric rise on Instagram and celebrity parodies have since gained a significant following including many celebrity fans such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Dawn French, Amy Schumer, Ashton Kutcher, Tiffany Haddish, Cindy Crawford and Kris Jenner to name a few, as well appearing with Tom Ford at New York Fashion Week, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

Currently touring across North America ahead of European and UK dates, in this exciting live stand-up show Celeste explains the stories and mishaps behind some of her most famous images, her new relationship with celebrities, fans and stalkers, and comments that get under her skin.

Celeste also hits us with a healthy dose of humour as she explains some of the pitfalls of being married to someone so much hotter than her (shout-out to #hothusband) and what it’s like to be an Anti-Influencer.

Description

Ahead of the release of their third studio album, My Own Pool of Light (out Friday August 2nd via Wonderlick Recordings), HOLY HOLY announce a 15-date national headline tour. Renowned for their extraordinary live performances, this September, October and November will see HOLY HOLY playing some of their biggest venues to date, visiting both capital cities and regional centres. HOLY HOLY will be joined on tour by special guest Carla Geneve, who has recently finished up a tour in the US and released her self-titled debut EP, alongside the release of single 'Things Change' which has received triple j support.

My Own Pool of Light is an undiluted representation of HOLY HOLY’S vision, from the songwriting to the recording process and, ultimately, their decision to self produce. It’s an album that finds guitarist Oscar Dawson and vocalist Timothy Carroll incorporating new sounds and fresh ideas. In the process they redefine exactly what kind of band they are without sacrificing the key elements – soaring melodies, lush instrumental textures, the beguiling mix of jubilance and melancholy, Carroll’s affecting lyrics – that have made them one of Australia’s most popular acts.

To date the duo have over 46 million streams to their name, while their 2015 debut, When The Storms Would Come, debuted at Number 11 on the ARIA Charts. Its follow-up, 2017’s Paint, was a Top 10 hit, with True Lovers landing at #40 in 2017’s Hottest 100. This success propelled HOLY HOLY to festival appearances both local (Groovin The Moo 2019, Bluesfest 2018, Secret Garden 2018, Festival Of The Sun 2018 among many others) and international (Primavera, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn, Dot To Dot), as well as countless sold out headline shows around Australia. First single off the upcoming record, Faces, has been streamed almost 2 million times, claimed the #1 most played position on triple j, received support from the UK’s BBC Radio 1 and was playlisted on Radio X in the UK.
