Melbourne's live performance scene is back and buzzing with hit musicals, cutting-edge performances and late-night cabaret shows! Whitehorse Performing Arts Program venues in particular are presenting a fabulous line-up of entertainment this Autumn/Winter 2022. Two must-see highlights include:

Circling Time - Songs & Stories by Kutcha Edwards

Sat 28 May, 8pm

One Community, 184 Surrey Road, Blackburn

Renowned Aboriginal singer/songwriter and proud Mutti Mutti, Yorta Yorta and Nari Nari man, Kutcha Edwards, will enthral audiences with his beautiful voice and charismatic stage presence in Circling Time - Songs & Stories.

This engaging show explores Kutcha's life through the themes of Country, Birth, Youth, Politics, Love, Culture, Healing and Hope. Each theme is bathed in individualised colours and enhanced by stunning projections that amplify the poignancy of Kutcha's original songs and stories.

Audiences will be enriched by their encounter with Kutcha and left with a broader understanding of Aboriginal culture and a deeper understanding of Australia's first people. Tickets are now on sale here.

The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion

Sat 11 Jun 2pm & 8pm

One Community, 184 Surrey Road, Blackburn

Joan Didion's celebrated memoir The Year of Magical Thinking is brought to life by Green Room Award-winning actor Jillian Murray in a critically-acclaimed solo performance that reunites her with director Laurence Strangio.

This highly personal account of loss through the lens of hope unpacks a surreal and overwhelming time in Didion's life as she faces the sudden loss of her husband John, and later her daughter Quintana.

Deeply moving, sometimes funny, and ultimately joyful, this is one woman's story of the journey to find acceptance, and the lessons learnt in letting go. A must-see for fans of great drama. Tickets are now on sale here.
