Set in the 90s, but with timeless themes and life lessons, X-STACY is an important experience for young people, as well as their parents and families alike. Past audiences continue to comment on the relevance and necessity of this theatrical experience in today’s world.

When his younger sister, Stacy, wants to check out the rave scene, Ben knows he’ll have to watch out for her. And tonight she’s going to drop her first ecstasy pill. Later, as Ben struggles to forgive himself, his mother retreats into the Church. But the time will come when both must face the truth about what really happened that night.

SEASON RUNS 23 AUGUST – 8 SEPTEMBER

SYNOPSIS:

The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble returns to the stunning Roma Street Parkland with Shakespeare’s much-loved Henry IV Part 1.

King Henry risked everything to take the crown, but now, under threat from former allies and foreign enemies, it sits uneasily. To make matters worse, his rebellious son, Prince Hal, is spending all his time in the seediest pubs of London with a troupe of petty criminals led by that corrupter of youth, Sir John Falstaff. As Henry’s enemies unite and the threat of war approaches, we’re drawn into an epic tale of family and friendship, rivalry and redemption.

As much a drunken comedy and coming-of-age drama as it is a history, Henry IV Part 1is sure to delight and excite Shakespeare lovers and newcomers alike!

The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble is proud to partner with the Red CrossARAFMI Ltd, and Communify to present the A Night at the Theatre initiative.

In Cinemas JULY 25

SYNOPSIS:

Based on an incredible true story, Bert Trautmann joined the Wehrmacht as a paratrooper at the age of 17. After receiving five medals for bravery he was captured by the British towards the end of the War, arriving in north-west England as a prisoner. During this time, a local football manager noticed Bert’s exceptional talent as a soccer goalkeeper. His subsequent signing by Man City brought passionate protests from the people of Manchester, a city that had been severely bombed in the War. However, against all odds he won over even his harshest critics during the FA Cup Final for Manchester City in 1956. After an on-field accident, Bert broke his neck… and continued playing to secure victory.

REVIEW:

Nerida

The MCU is in great hands! I personally have been of the opinion that Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man and that the MCU has handled Spider-Man better than previous iterations. I believe Far From Home is proof of that.

I am blown away at the quality of this film – The writing, action, story, and characters are all at a higher calibre than we’ve seen in most of the previous MCU films. I did not once find myself bored. I was always entertained by some aspect of the movie. The high school romance, the elemental battles, and most of all Mysterio.

Mysterio was the big highlight of this. I never thought I’d see Mysterio on the big screen and now we have him in movie where he is done PERFECTLY. He was absolutely flawless and a big stand out character of the MCU. Jake Gyllenhal was born for this role and was used to the fullest of his abilities and the characters abilities.

In the end, this is what Spider-Man should be. Tom Holland is fantastic and is set to lead the future of the MCU.
