Family Season tickets selling out fast

Date published: 14 August 2018

Townsville City Council’s Theatre Family Season has been a huge hit among the Townsville community with extremely limited tickets still available for this today’s production of Josephine Wants to Dance.

Family Season gives children a chance to learn about themes such as anti-bullying and tolerance in a fun and interactive environment.

Community and Cultural Development Committee Chair Councillor Colleen Doyle said Family Season’s popularity is great for arts in Townsville.

“Live theatre is a great way for children to become immersed in the arts, and gain skills and an understanding of the world,” Cr Doyle said.

“These productions are created with messaging that relates to school curriculums and are often delivered alongside workshops to really engage with students.

“Council wants to continue to invest in activities for families and provide opportunities for locals to get involved whether it’s through the creation of new jobs as our theatre season grows or being a cast member in a production.

“Family Season’s The Gruffalo has already shown massive interest with shows sold out for the production in November.

“Being the arts capital of Northern Australia, Council will continue bringing popular productions for a range of audiences into 2019.”

Townsville’s Civic Theatre was recently re-opened following a $10 million upgrade, which provides our community with the best regional arts facility in Australia.

The upgraded Civic Theatre will ensure Townsville can host the best line up of shows outside of a capital city to help attract more visitors here and provide a boost to local businesses.
