10:30 am Merredin My Robot

My Robot takes audiences of all ages on a rambunctious adventure filled with robot antics, laughter, daring rescues and bewildered parents.

When Ophelia moves with her family to the seaside, she’s not impressed. She doesn’t like the beach, misses her old home and thinks the people in this town are pretty strange. While unpacking her room she discovers a mysterious box full of gadgets, parts and pieces, and a strange note that reads ‘You. Make. Me.’ Her curiosity gets the better of her and she spends all night assembling the objects into Olivetti, a robot with a typewriter chest and an alarm clock heart. Made up of pieces, but more than the sum of her parts.

Together Ophelia and Olivetti take on the local bully and make friends with a child so worried about allergies that he never leaves the house, all while trying to keep her dad from discovering that Olivetti is really a robot. But a bigger challenge is coming – can the pair save their friend and reunite him with his mother?

My Robot takes audiences of all ages on a rambunctious adventure filled with robot antics, laughter, daring rescues and bewildered parents, all told with the care and artistry synonymous with Barking Gecko Theatre’s award winning shows. Children will discover that we’re all just made from pieces, and that when we feel less than whole we can find – or make – a part that fits!

6:45 pm Merredin Spencer

Cummins Theatre is proud to present ‘Spencer’ by Katy Warner, the brand new Australian comedy-drama from one of Australia’s leading independent theatre companies LabKelpie that explores the fate of one gloriously dysfunctional Australian family across a weekend of love, laughs and pain.

Spencer tells the story of a tight-knit family led by single-mum matriarch Marilyn (JaneClifton) and her three adult children–wayward daughter Jules (Fiona Harris), mouthy coulda-been Ben (Lyall Brooks) and AFL player and golden-boy Scott (JamiesonCaldwell).

About to meet the young son–Spencer–he never knew he had, Scott and the family have returned home to help mark the occasion. With the surprise appearance of the father they barely remember (Roger Oakley), the entire family is forced to work together to clean up both the house and their own fractured relationships as the clock ticks down to Spencer’s arrival.

Employing classic Australian vernacular and the penchant for humour to explore issues of self-acceptance, identity and depression, Spencer asks us to consider how much our family defines who we are, and whether we ever really grow up…

Performance times:
Doors open – 6:45pm
Performance – 7:30pm – 90mins duration.

MA 16+ – contains mild swearing.

Tickets are $15 available online or in person at Cummins Theatre or Central Wheatbelt Visitor Centre
