  • Canberra Theatre Shows (1 day)
  • Hunter Valley Christmas lights (3 nights)
  • Royal Military Tattoo (3 nights)
  • Man from Snowy River Festival Corryong – (2 nights)

What a fantastic trip to the Hunter! Rixon’s planned every part to perfection, from the front door pick up to the morning tea to just everything. It was a very memorable few days.

A delightfully clever romantic comedy that brings the Oscar-winning film to the stage.

“A joyous celebration of the possibilities of theatre itself.” Daily Telegraph

★★★★★ Makes you grateful to be alive.” The Independent

Young Will Shakespeare has a bad case of writer’s block and desperately needs a muse. His new comedy, Romeo and Ethel the Pirate’s Daughter, is less than inspired and he’s running out of time to deliver his next masterpiece. That is, until he meets Viola, and a real-life Romeo and Juliet story starts to take hold. But Viola has a secret, and this damned Romeo play is turning out to be nothing like the comedy the Queen demanded.

Shakespeare in Love won seven Oscars in 1998 when Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes stole our hearts on screen. Now, Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman’s Academy Award-winning script has been transformed by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) into a side-splitting stage comedy with a stirring love story at its heart.

With acclaimed director Simon Phillips (Muriel’s Wedding the Musical) at the helm, this unique theatrical event guarantees a rollicking night of romance, backstage fun and lavish musical accompaniment.

Welcome back to the 1970’s!

Award-winning entertainer Stephen Fisher-King has created an exciting new show that will take you back to when Coolabah was cool, and cats were in the cradle while the good ol’ boys were drinking whiskey and rye. The show includes a six piece band including Jo Elms and Chris Connolly, whose guitar riffs will leave you breathless. The 70’s Unplugged is a collection of the greatest hits from the coolest decade of our lives and includes songs from America, Sonny & Cher, Don McLean, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Simon and Garfunkle, Elton John and more!

The show features a fantastic multi-media presentation documenting the culture, news, fun, fashion and even the food of the years when stubbies and flares were cool, and nothing could save the Governor General!

He was classically trained as a baritone at the Canberra School of Music, but always preferred the fun of musical theatre. Stephen has had lead roles in Cats, Evita, The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Hello Dolly and The Rocky Horror Show.

 “In our show we have music from America, The Eagles, John Denver and Linda Ronstadt,” says Stephen. “We’ve included the best-loved songs so you’ll be able to sing along – then probably sing the whole way home in the car as well!”
