Saturday, March 23 sees the world famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus take centre stage at TRECC.
Their production, Junk, takes you on a journey back to a time when the neighbourhood street was a playground full of adventure and make-believe.
An ordinary boy, dressed head-to-toe in contemporary safety gear, discovers an abandoned junkyard inhabited by a gang of wild-at-heart kids. With boundless enthusiasm, the group urge him to play as children once did: without inhibition and free from adult supervision.
Propelled by a cast of talented young performers, this vibrant take on childhood tumbles headfirst into a world of play and imagination through circus skills, acrobatics and beautiful shadow puppetry, creating a sense of nostalgia for a time when young people were encouraged to take risks and weren't wrapped in cotton wool.
Inspired by childhood stories told to them by elderly residents of regional Australia, the young artists of the world-famous Flying Fruit Fly Circus will move and inspire you with their breath-taking artistry. Come to this award-winning show with your whole family and be inspired to unleash your inner acrobat.
It is recommended for ages six and up.

This dynamic husband and wife team or Kate Raison and Brian Meegan are making their way to Tamworth for this unforgettable Ensemble Theatre production. Directed by Ensemble Theatre director Mark Kilmurry, this comedic play, written by Jim Cartwright, introduces 14 characters, all played by Meegan and Raison.
Set in the local pub, you’ll meet all the regulars, a misfit crowd of eccentric and hilarious individuals. There’s Moth, who loves Maud (and every other woman) fervently; Mrs Iger, with her passion for quiet, strong men; possessive Roy, jealous of anybody who looks at Lesley (even the darts players); Alice and Fred and their Elvis obsession; and the publicans themselves – a married couple with an unspoken secret.
Two is funny, heart-warming and poignant. Recommended for ages 15 and up.
