Popcorn and more

This month at The Rose Centre with manager John Davies.

We had a fun open day on Neighbour’s Day, Sunday March 25.
A sausage sizzle, theatre tours and a Coffee Guy truck all showed up to make for a super day. The tours went really well, with amazing displays by the wonderful Company Theatre team. People were fascinated at the “More Fawlty Towers” set display and explanation. I saw the original “Fawlty Towers” and remembered when I arrived here to run The Rose Centre thinking how on earth did that massive set all fit on that stage?

The Belmont Community Copy Centre

We recently installed a state-of-the-art up to A3 colour or mono copier and scanner. Prices are competitive but for the first time, Belmont residents don’t have to reach out up or down Lake Road to make copies. Drop in and use our lovely machine, pay reasonable costs and enjoy less hassle.

The Rose Singers present “Till We Meet Again”

It’s 100 years since the end of World War 1 and Belmont’s very own polished singing troupe, “The Rose Singers” have under the able direction of Ruth Chapman created a musical play to celebrate the music of the time. Come along, you’re welcome to burst in to song with the team! Call us on 445 9900 to book tickets, $20 each, 8pm each night April 4 to 7 with a 2pm matt on Saturday the 7th.

Company Theatre presents Ben Elton’s Popcorn

Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy on its release in the West End, it’s a rollicking and confrontational story that it’s suggested those easily offended by a bit of effing and blinding. In his review Neil Hopkins concludes “Elton’s conclusion, as far as I understand it, is that we all must take both personal and corporate responsibility for the kind of society that we want to live in. We cannot simply blame others without taking action ourselves.” It's deep, meaningful and full of Elton’s dark humour.
