Limelight Little Acts

Rocky Horror Picture Show

The original cult classic had us all in a mind flip, as we entered the time slip and nothing will ever be the same. So get on those costumes, the weirder the better and come along to an event where you’re spaced out of sensation, like you are under sedation. Where pelvic thrusts and madness takes their toll.

Immerse yourself in Richard O’Brien’s world of elaborate dances and rock songs. Get in on the action; dress up, sing, dance, call back to the screen – we want audience partici…pation!

Tickets are just $10 get yours today from eventfinda.
Movie is rated M with nudity and sexual content and themes and bad language. 
Cash mocktail bar will be available on the night.

All tickets are General Admission so if you have large groups, first in, best dressed for seats upon arrival, no reserved seating.

Limelight Little Acts

Limelight Theatre is proud to announce a short season of Little Acts, featuring two wonderful shows per night.
 
The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard
It is a foggy and foreboding day at Muldoon Manor. A game of bridge results in raised temper-atures and veiled threats; a mysterious man, possibly mad, shows up to charm the lady of the house and her young friend; and a dead body lies under the sofa, waiting to be discovered. All the while, a pair of pretentious critics comment on the action, munch chocolates, complain bitterly about their professional rivals, and ogle the attractive actresses.
 
What Do You Say After You Say Hello by Richard Finn
As Jennifer and Mike find themselves unwillingly together in a bedroom as the party outside rages, they fumble through the first stages of friendship. Winner of the 2010 Playmarket Plays For the Young and Winner of the 2018 WOAF awards for Best Production, Best Director, Best Actor, Encouragement Award and People’s Choice Award.
 
Doors open at 7pm along with our ever popular cash mocktail bar the first show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets only $10 from Eventfinda (direct link to come) it is a looking to be another great night out for all!
