The Beggars Sing The Seekers
Wednesday, 22 July, 11:00 am
$18 a ticket

Part of COPACC's 2015 Morning Music Season, The Beggars love the sound of The Seekers and they’re making a welcome return to COPACC to celebrate the hits of one of Australia’s all-time favourite bands. From their early days in the Melbourne cafe scene to 1960s London – the swinging centre of the pop and folk hits – The Seekers rode a rollercoaster of pop and folk hits. The Beggar’s play beautifully and sing in perfect harmony. You’ll love their authentic renditions of Georgy Girl, I’ll Never Find Another You, A World of Our Own and Morningtown Ride.

Join COPACC for a free morning tea at 10am before the show.

Proudly sponsored by Arundell, Murray & Ryan

The annual Alice Springs Beanie Festival is fast approaching and Tilly Napuljari is running out of time to finish her creation and enter it for judging. Sydneysider Nessa Tavistock has run away to the Red Centre to escape her problems.
With time and talk their differences in language, surroundings and upbringing become less obvious. In making their beanie together, Tilly and Nessa’s stories become an entwined thing of beauty – row by row, colour by colour, yarn by yarn.
Head Full of Love is the story of these remarkable women and their unlikely but inspiring friendship. It invites you to look differently at possibilities. Wesley Enoch directs this intricate, warm and wisely told tale by Australian playwright Alana Valentine (Run Rabbit Run, Parramatta Girls).

Warning- Health themes and moderate language. Recommended for 15+.

Jack is smart, funny and is being bullied. What starts as an off-the-cuff joke during a handball competition, soon turns into a set of circumstances whereby Jack is no longer safe in the playground. But with the use of self expression through photography, Jack begins to make sense of his world; of his relationships with others, and most importantly, with himself. Based on the book by Susanne Gervay, adapted by Eva Di Cesare, Tim McGarry and Sandra Eldridge.

The Coodabeen Champions
Wednesday, August 26, 8pm
Box Office: (03) 5232 2077
Adults $35 Concession/Students $30


To celebrate the 35th anniversary of their legendary footy show, ABC Radio’s favourite sons, the Coodabeen Champions, are taking their show on the road to perform live for legions of footy fans across Victoria.

Following a sold-out show at the Arts Centre Melbourne’s Playhouse Theatre last year, Covey, Champs, Billy and Richo decided their team balance was right to tackle the rigours of a 10-venue tour across regional Victoria and metro Melbourne to mark their 35th year on-air, and they will be playing COPACC on Wednesday, August 26.

When the Coodabeens hit the 3RRR airwaves in 1981 with their simple formula, they were also breaking new ground for sports coverage. And, a bit like the AFL teams of today, the Coodabeens did their share of building the playing list. A few came and went – including Whelan who was benched, albeit in the Supreme Court – but Richardson is still rucking to an engine room of stalwarts Ian Cover, Greg Champion, Billy Baxter and Jeff “Torch” McGee.

Having built the list, the Coodabeens have managed to stay at the top of their game, have never bottomed out nor tanked. Indeed, they finished the 2013 and 2014 seasons at No 1 in their timeslot and, in 2015, have picked up where they left off.

The Coodabeens live tour line-up is; Ian Cover, Greg Champion, Billy Baxter and Jeff Richardson.
