We must respect the thing that feeds us.

Welcome to Bluewater, Tasmania—a mining town with no mine, where the population is ageing or leaving, and the future is a tenuous daydream. If something doesn’t change soon, there’ll be no town left to stay for. So when a rich and charming count appears wanting to turn Bluewater’s fortunes around, it makes sense to invite him in.

Doesn’t it?

Whistle & Trick is an ARIA-nominated children’s band who are always ready to sing, dance, and cause mischief. Their high energy live show features songs off their debut album along with a visit from friends Frank the Monster and Melindu the Emu!

Whistle & Trick is a Melbourne based children’s band made up of childhood friends Esther Holt and Maddy Kelly, who are always ready to sing, dance, and cause a bit of mischief. Having shared the stage back in their goody-goody, high school choir days, this dynamic duo have now reunited and joined forces to bring their newest love of children’s music to life.

Whistle & Trick released their debut album ‘Bananas and Other Delicious Things’ in June 2023 through ABC Music, which has launched them into the scene, earning them a 2023 Aria Nomination for best children’s album alongside renowned children’s music acts Peter Combe, The Wiggles, Emma Memma and Playschool.

Esther and Maddy both come from abundant musical backgrounds, with Esther growing up in a household of professional orchestral musicians, and Maddy Kelly being the daughter of Australian music legend, Paul Kelly. Growing up in such musical environments fuelled their interest in music, and between them they have performed in many bands all over the world. All the while, they could never shake their love for working with children, resulting in both Maddy and Esther taking up careers in music education.

Finally, they realised that with their knowledge of children’s education and their natural musicianship, it seemed only fitting to bring these skillsets together and thus, Whistle and Trick was born.

You can expect a Whistle & Trick live show to be high energy and get the whole family up and moving, with their special friends Frank the Monster and Melindu the Emu also making an appearance!

Williams new play IMPROVISED

You’ve heard of 48-Hour Shakespeare where performers have 48 hours to rehearse and prepare a Shakespeare play. Well in this version, the performers have 0-hours and have to create the show on the spot, and an unwritten one at that! Yes, the cast are making up the play as they go along, in Shakespearean style! Will it be a comedy, a tragedy, a history or a bit of each?

Join PROTEA Impro as they bring to life the excerpts of the best of Shakespeare’s unwritten plays!* What happens when Shakespeare is given a modern context to set his plays? What is the name of the Bard’s best play that Shakespeare never wrote?

This show is improvised with content often inspired by suggestions from the audience. Other than the opportunity to provide a suggestion, there is no audience involvement in this show. As the content is improvised, we suggest the show is for mature audiences.

*As Shakespeare never wrote these plays, no one can be certain that they weren’t originally his ideas!
