The Kempsey Bandbox Theatre is back with a bang for 2019 with the first show of the year coming to the theatre next week.
Banjo is an exciting mix of contemporary dance, the music of Coldplay and the spoken word of Banjo Paterson. The performance intertwines the life of Paterson through arrangements of Coldplay's biggest hits and is performed live by some of Australia's leading performance talent.
President of the Kempsey Singers, Brian Lindbeck, said he hopes this performance will engage the community back into the richness of live performances at the Bandbox.
"This is our start for 2019. This is really what Kempsey needs, to come together and experience some really great live performances," he said.
"We're hoping it will show the community how the Bandbox can still provide really good quality entertainment.
"One of the performers in Banjo is a Kempsey man, Michael O'Mullane, which is really exciting," Mr Lindbeck said.
The Bandbox Theatre will also be holding a director school workshop on April 10 for any locals interested in learning more about directing.
"We want to have more local productions at the Bandbox, and this workshop might inspire some aspiring directors to take the lead," Mr Lindbeck said.
"We're looking at having a production of Oliver and other plays towards the end of this year. This is really just the start for us."

Banjo will be live at the Bandbox Theatre for one night next week on Thursday March 28 at 6pm.
