spring Awakening
20 Sep 2017
Spring Awakening
Venue: Arts Theatre A1, Madgwick Drive, University of New England. Time: 7.30pm. Cost: $20 (adult), $15 (concession) - available from Carr's NewsXpress (170 Beardy Street Mall, phone 02 6772 3534) or at or at door. For more information, phone Peter on 02 6773 3061. A group of young people, coming of age at the turn of the century, set out to understand love, sex, fate and destiny, while the adults around them insist on denying their burgeoning maturity. Spring Awakening is a cautionary tale about keeping children in the dark so long that they have to find their own way into the light.
Feeding Camels
22 Sep 2017
New England Camel Co.
Venue: New England Camel Farm. Time: 11.00am-2.00pm. Cost: $15 (adult), $10 (child). For more information and address, phone 0439 922 350. There are llamas, camels and farm animals to visit and feed. Camel rides and llama walks available during dry weather, by arrangement. Relax and watch a DVD about the history of camels. Sensible footwear and warm coat are a good idea. We are a non-smoking property. A warm fire in a rustic converted shed and a humble little shop selling camel products such as soap, moisturizer, scarves, mittens, candles etc. completes the experience. To feed the animals, please bring along some carrots, apples or bread. Feel free to bring a picnic if you wish!
