Your March Fix

The Thinker, Marjorie Lord

Summer is now officially over, and Autumn … feels just as hot as summer. The creative events on offer across Townsville are as hot as the weather, so be sure to check them out! Here are our top events for this month.

  1. Jingo – Townsville Little Theatre.

Whether this is your first foray into the world of Terry Pratchett or not, Jingo is one you’ll want to be front row for. There’s laughs, drama, and more than a few twists and turns to keep you guessing. Townsville Little Theatre always put on a high calibre performance, and this is expected to be no different! Jingo takes to the stage at PIMPAC from 8 – 11 March at 7:30pm, with an extra 2pm matinee on the Saturday. Get your tickets here.

  1. The Living End’s Staring Down the Highway Tour

While we’re stoked that the Living End are on their way to Townsville, we hope the highway they’re staring down isn’t the Bruce – otherwise they’re in for a bumpy ride. The boys are bringing their signature big noise to a slew of intimate venues across Australia, so couldn’t go past the Daly on 24 March. Tickets are selling fast!

  1. Stage Door Theatre Restaurant’s Time Warp.

A night at the Stage Door Theatre Restaurant is full of humour, music, and more than enough food and drinks to keep you satisfied.  Each show is unique, with audience interaction just part of the package – and the only way it could get better would be with all the best music from the cult classic that is Rocky Horror! Time Warp launches at Stage Door on March 18, with performances held each weekend. For more information on dates and to book tickets, click here!

  1. Loona Lounge Returns!

The first Loona Lounge for 2017 is set to be epic, with musos from across North Queensland readying set lists for a night to remember at the Commonwealth Hotel. The theme of the night is ‘Dynamic Duos,’ showcasing artists that sound just as good paired up as they do solo. Kick back on the couches for a night of great live music for free, with all the action kicking off at 7pm on March 10.

  1. From the Collection Exhibition – Gallery 48

Throughout March and April, the quaint little gallery on The Strand will host owner Anne Lord’s own private collection of art in an exhibition titled From the Collection. The collection includes a number of pieces from Mount Isa artist, Marjorie Lord, who’s exhibition Clayed has been extended at the Mount Isa Regional Gallery twice, due to its popularity. Be sure to pop in and have a look next time you’re on the Strand. Gallery 48 is open 12pm-5pm Wednesdays and Saturdays or by appointment and From the Collection opens 8 March.
