An exemption to the Public Health Order issued to RSL NSW on March 9 2021 stipulates that a maximum of 5000 people can participate in the Sydney CBD March.

The Linden Quartet Performs Romantic Classics

The Linden Quartet is delighted to be performing again for Wyvern Music Forestville. The concert on Sunday 23rd May at 4:00pm at OLGC Catholic Church. Romantic Classics - Schumann with a dash of Mozart and Mahler, will feature three chamber music gems- the sunny and charming Schumann Piano Quartet, Mahler’s only chamber work, his youthful Piano Quartet and Mozart’s extraordinary Piano Trio in E.

Winston Churchill Fellow, concert pianist, artistic director and music educator Grace Kim, joins forces with three other highly regarded Sydney musicians, violinist Marina Marsden, violist Justine Marsden and cellist, Kristy Conrau.

Grace Kim believes that quality live music should be accessible to everyone with a desire to hear it. Her Sensory Concerts and Mountain Concerts series ensure that it does. As a concerto soloist, Grace has performed with major symphony orchestras of Australasia, Belgium, Turkey, Russia and the Ukraine. She remains one of the most respected musicians in Australia, able to attract internationally-recognised peers to perform at her Mountain Concerts and Sensory Concerts series.

Sydney Symphony Orchestra colleagues, Marina Marsden, Justine Marsden and Kristy Conrau share Grace’s love of chamber music and both perform regularly in the SSO’s Sydney Opera House Utzon Room series. Marina is also a Winston Churchill Fellow and together with her sister, Justine, founded the Linden String Trio and recorded several CDs of Australian chamber music. Kristy, a former Sydney Symphony Fellow, enjoyed international success as a chamber music player before joining the SSO’s cello section.

Newport Actors Take Leads in Arthur Miller Classic

Newport actor, Paul Winchester, will play the lead role of John Proctor in the classic Arthur Miller production of The Crucible, with Leanne Mauro, also from Newport, playing his wife Elizabeth.
Proudly presented by Point Break Drama Theatre Company, The Crucible is based on the real-life witch trials of 1692 in Salem, colonial Massachusetts. More than 30 people were accused of witchcraft and 19 were executed.

It is said the Arthur Miller was partly inspired by the McCarthy communist membership trials of the 1950’s in America. Based on anti-communist hysteria, this shameful era became known as the McCarthy era.
Paul Winchester has appeared in television and films including Infini, Home & Away, Underbelly and Crownies and the Sci fi epic, The Osiris Child, which also starred Kellan Lutz, Rachel Griffiths, Isabel Lucas and Dan McPherson. 

He is the director of Point Break Drama Theatre Company. The theatre provides an extensive range of acting classes for all ages.

“The Crucible is a high-powered and fast-moving play that will have the audience on the edge of their seats. We have assembled a stellar cast from the beaches and it is directed by resident director by Blair Cutting. We can’t wait to share the experience”.

Leanne Mauro is excited to be playing Elizabeth Proctor and saying;​​“I still vividly remember watching my first production of ​The Crucible​ when in high school. The court room scene sent shivers down my spine - as it does now. It’s a play of great power.” 

There will be only six performances of The Crucible at the Star Of The Sea Theatre Manly

Show dates are; 
Friday 23rd April 6.30pm Opening Night, Saturday 24th April 6.30pm Sunday 25th April 2pm, Friday 30th April 6.30pm and 
Saturday 1st May 2pm Matinee.

Tickets will be available through Trybooking for this dramatic production.
