Hell Ship: The journey of the Ticonderoga

By Michael Veitch

Michael Veitch writes and performs a one-man show of an historical maritime event never shown on stage before.

In 1852, the emigrant ship Ticonderoga limped into Port Melbourne after a nightmare voyage from England in which nearly 200 of her passengers had died of typhus. Her saga of tragedy, loss and heroism gripped the people of our young nation like nothing before. Michael Veitch will perform his one-man show from the perspective of the young ship’s surgeon who bravely nursed many of the sick passengers back to health. A dark story but told utilising Michael’s great ability to capture the human aspects and always find some small thing to attach a wry sense of humor to when required. The clincher – the surgeon was actually his great-great grandfather, James William Henry Veitch .

BEEP!

Windmill Theatre Co

A slightly sideways tale about unexpected friendship, finding where you fit and learning to mix it up a little. In Mort’s Village everything has its place, every day is the same and everyone likes it that way. Until one morning, crash, boom, bang… down comes Beep. What is this annoying interruption to Mort’s breakfast molly melon, who is this noisy robot girl, and how will she find her home? With Windmill’s trademark design, gentle storytelling, music and puppetry, Beep tells the story of what happens when someone new comes to town.

Snow White and the Seven Cool Dudes

Jally Entertainment

Snow White is becoming more beautiful every day and the Wicked Queen is not happy so she has decided to send Snow White away, to get rid of her once and for all. The Magic Mirror has warned The Wicked Queen this is a huge mistake – Snow White is beautiful on the inside and the outside too and everyone likes her. The Queen isn’t listening, and she orders The Hunter from her palace to take Snow White into the forest and leave her there… forever!

Meanwhile, the Cool Dudes have decided it’s time they started making healthier food choices and doing some exercise – they can’t sit around eating junk food and playing video games for hours on end. It’s time to get outside and enjoy the day!

During this interactive production, children will enjoy the opportunity of role-play as they are invited to become a variety of characters- including The Cool Dudes- that love to rap! The off-stage action continues with song and dance for the rest of the audience.
