On Sunday, April 22, the Rockin’ Out Scooby Circus Show will be held at the Matt Dann Cultural Centre.
“When you think Rock and Roll, you think a Concert with thousands of screaming fans. When you think juggling, you think the Grand Circus Big Top marching into town. When you think Comedy, you think laughing so hard you can’t breathe. When you think Scooby, it’s all three.”
With a big box of various circus props, Scooby brings a fun, interactive and lively performance. Touring Australia and the rest of the world, he has had the opportunity to perform for CircusOz, Perth International Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, Newcastle Quayside Culture Festival in Britain and Kulturufer in Germany.
This is a great and impressive family show not to be missed!

Also on Thursday, CIRCA
, a knee-tremblingly sexy, beautiful and moving performance will be held at the Matt Dann Cultural Centre.
CIRCA is a thoroughly new kind of circus: daring, breathtaking, and cheeky.
This extraordinary troupe has left the high top and drum roll behind and stripped circus bare – and its bold new vision is taking the world by storm.
Rapturously acclaimed around the globe, from London to Berlin, Mandurah to Moranbah, this is movement at its most adventurous, but with a cabaret twist and a larrikin’s flair.
Combining high energy sound and innovative projections, seven of the world’s best perform jaw-dropping acrobatic feats.
It’s dangerous and skilful, immediate and powerful, but above all, it’s intimate and real.
In high demand, Australia’s Circa are back for a limited time only between international tours.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience what the rest of the world is raving about.
Tickets cost $44-Adult, $39-Concession, $36-Matt’s Mates and $24-Under 18yrs (including booking fees).
Buy them online and save 5% off or call the Matt Dann Cultural Centre on 9158 9638.

And to end off the night, head down to the Matt Dann Cultural Centre and watch The Descendants.
Set in Hawaii, The Descendants is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off Waikiki.
The event leads to a rapprochement with his young daughters while Matt wrestles with a decision to sell the family’s land handed down from Hawaiian royalty and missionaries.
Funny, moving, and beautifully acted, The Descendants captures the unpredictable messiness of life with eloquence and uncommon grace.
