The Anywhere Festival is back for 2019 and it's bigger and better than ever before. With events spread to all nooks and crannies of the Sunshine Coast - and Brisbane - audiences have an array of weird 'n wonderful experiences to look forward to.
The Anywhere Festival is a festival for any performance … anywhere … anytime … between the 9 and 26 May 2019.
Audiences will be privy to a diverse range of genres, from theatre, comedy, circus, dance, music and even magic poetry. Experiences that haven't even been described yet, all occurring in the most unexpected corners of the Sunshine Coast - backyards, businesses, cafes, book stores, boxing rings, swimming pools and I hear tell, in a maze too. The Anywhere Festival happens anywhere BUT a theatre! But, should a theatre be necessary for a production, audiences can be sure it will be used in a totally unique way to what one would expect. Expect the unexpected!
The Anywhere Festival is proud to announce a new arm - Anywhere Presents - to help develop and present performances anywhere and anytime, outside the Anywhere Festival.
It's certainly sounding any which way, but where, to me!
Imagine … Peter Pan, the story of the boy who would not grow up, has been transformed in 2019 to Peter Pan at the Strand. In a very different world and a very different time, Wendy Darling is visited by a young man - Peter Pan - in search of his shadow. He promises adventure and exploration of an enchanting place. Jumping at the opportunity to travel and meet extraordinary creatures, Wendy Darling's trip is a literal one for audiences, as they move from place to place in Caloundra's iconic Strand Building as the magical backdrop.
In this new telling of the Peter Pan classic, Peter Pan at the Strand, commences his travels at The Art Hub, Sunshine Coast. Embarking on a magical trip, Peter takes his fellow-travellers to meet much-loved characters in Neverland, as they battle between old friends and new enemies.
Audiences: Be prepared to immerse yourself in an alternate Neverland.
Peter Pan at the Strand is showcasing some of the Sunshine Coast's most promising actors and actresses.
Tickets range between $20 and $30 and can be purchased online here, via the anywhere.is website. The Strand Building venue only accommodates an audience of sixty guests and as the quirky Anywhere Festival productions are usually in very high demand, early bookings are essential.
Grab your friends, family and fairies because Peter Pan has lost his shadow and needs YOUR help to find it! In addition to the Peter Pan at the Strand interactive show, there are shadows hidden all over the Sunshine Coast for you to find and to win some amazing prizes. All you have to do to win is find Peter Pan's shadows, take a selfie, check-in to your location and share on Facebook, with the hashtag #peterpanatthestrand
