More things to do...


Head over to the Queensland Poetry Festival website and check out the 2010 program. The festival will be here soon (27th - 29th August) at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts.

The official opening on the Friday night looks fantastic and is followed by two days of readings by a range of national and international poets and spoken word artists.

Also, if you are in or near Toowoomba from the 21st to the 24th of October you might want to check out Spamalot at the Empire Theatre. I am looking forward to the production, but I am biased as I have two friends performing in it!

"Winner of the 2005 Tony Award® for Best Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot is the outrageous musical comedy lovingly ripped off from the film classic Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

Telling the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, and their quest for the Holy Grail, the Empire Theatres’ production of this smash hit musical will leave audiences in stitches. Flying cows, killer rabbits, a bevy of beautiful dancing divas, serfs, flatulent Frenchmen, a legless knight and show stopping musical numbers are just a few of the reasons that you will love Spamalot!

We’re Knights of the Round Table,

We dance when ere we’re able,

We do routines and chorus scenes

With footwork impeccable.

We dine well here in Camelot,

We eat ham and jam and spam a lot."
