Known for their musical and dramatic surprises, Perth Symphony Orchestra brings its critically acclaimed ‘Baroque by Candlelight’ concert to the Cummins Theatre in Merredin for an evening of stunning Baroque music.

In a venue illuminated mostly by candles and a fully narrated concert designed to appeal to the widest possible audience, the program includes popular favourites from the Baroque era as well as lesser-known works, to inspire the audience to explore more music of this era.

Local children will be cast to provide the narration and tell the stories of the composers, bringing the great masters to life, introducing each piece and providing rich stories behind the music. Soloists will perform stunning pieces to showcase the outstanding talent we have here in Western Australia. A musical, historical and spiritual journey for audience members.

7:00 pm Merredin The Big Hoo-Haa

If theatre and stand up comedy met one night in a smoky bar and after a few drinks found themselves in a compromising position in the back of a clapped out ’67 Volks Wagon, the result of this sordid tryst would be The Big HOO-HAA!

The Big HOO-HAA! Is a night of comedy that will help you forget your troubles and have you laughing out loud from start to finish. In the style of “Who’s line is it anyway” and “Thank God You’re Here” The Big HOO-HAA! sees two teams of fearless comedians take the stage to do battle in a competition of wit, humour and bad mime skills in an effort to win the coveted Horse’s Arse Trophy.

It’s a no holds barred race to the punch line. This is an interactive show that uses the audience suggestions to create improvised comedy sketches. The show is completely improvised therefore every performance is wonderfully unique and created just for you!

This performance will be held in the Tivoli Room – so tickets are limited!

Doors Open – 6:30pm
Show starts – 7:00pm

Ticket prices – $25 Adult, $20 Concession, $15 Students

Tickets available online through trybooking or in person at Cummins Theatre or Central Wheatbelt Visitor Centre

Location
Tivoli Cummins Theatre, 31 Bates Street
