Want to know Perth's best-kept theatre secret?
Shhh! I'm going to let you in on a secret. (looks around furtively)

Buried in Perth's southern suburbs is an amazing arts centre producing live shows several times a year and attracting actors from across Perth to audition for shows including The Sound of Music. Not only that, this year it hosted the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow, comedian Damian Callinan's Cave to the Rave, and Fremantle singer Grace Barbe.

It's Koorliny Arts Centre - a hidden gem in the newly-revived Kwinana Town Centre that comprises two theatres and an amphitheatre, and passionate staff and volunteers who make the centre the treasure it is. If they are the backbone, then the community theatre performances are the heartbeat; the theatre attracts amateur actors, directors, producers, choreographers, musicians, set-builders and costumers all with the vision to do what they love and do it well. The result? A centre that people walk away from, commenting on its warmth and down-to-earth feel.

If you've been thinking of checking out Koorliny Arts Centre the perfect opportunity is coming up, with Eurobeat - Almost Eurovision nearing curtain call.

Eurobeat Almost Eurovision is an hilarious homage to the infamous Eurovision Song Contest.

Rehearsals are well under way for this show, which has been described as a musical banquet, a glamour fest and a political minefield and comes complete with ridiculous dance moves, bizarre songs, cultural confusion and colourful costumes in all, it's a smorgasbord of entertainment.

Be prepared to laugh, cheer and be a little silly, but most of all, don't take it all too seriously.

The final show in the Koorliny Arts Centre and Kwinana Industries Council 2013 Performance Season, Eurobeat - Almost Eurovision runs from November 22-30. Bookings can be made here.

Rehearsals are also under way for Young Frankenstein, the first show in the Koorliny Arts Centre and Kwinana Industries Council 2014 Performance Season.
