Melbourne City Ballet presents Romeo and Juliet!
Join Melbourne City Ballet as they bring the classical ballet version of William Shakespeare’s arguably most popular work Romeo and Juliet to life at Byron Theatre at the Community Centre on 21 July.
Choreographed by artistic director Michael Pappalardo, William Shakespeare’s classic story explores the chance meeting of two young lovers, the son and daughter of two rival families, who quickly develop a forbidden love that could cost them their lives.
Known for their unique choreography and high-quality artists, Melbourne City Ballet has quickly grown on the Australian arts scene under the direction of Michael Pappalardo who founded the company in 2013. With a cast of 16 artists, including local northern rivers dancer Olivia Paine performing for the first time professionally in Byron. Melbourne City Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet will feature principal artists Yuiko Masukawa and Brendan Bradshaw in the titled roles. Romeo and Juliet is Melbourne City Ballet’s most raw production within their repertoire, taking the audience on a journey to the city of Verona and into the lives of the two star-crossed lovers.
Proudly presented by the Byron Centre. Expect beautiful costumes, cleverly designed sets and an unmistakably evocative score in this timeless production.

Funny shit at the court
Standup comedian Greg Sullivan takes charge at the Court House in Mullumbimby on Thursday night. Sullivan is the master of creating clever concepts and twisting them slowly before your eyes. In fact, you can’t even imagine what he’s doing and then, bang!, he delivers the punchline.
Greg is always in control. Larger than life, he commands the room with his dry sardonic style. You can’t help but love Sully. Catch him as the MC at the open mic this month when a bunch of new comics jump up!
Dandyman provides sugar-free high for kids!

A five-star-reviewed, award-winning show of outrageously funny proportions, Dandyman thrills audiences with a kooky, eclectic and unique show featuring jaw-dropping circus, absurd acrobatics, side-splitting comedy and mischievous hi-jinks inhabiting an invigorating, crazy, sublime and magical world you will never want to leave!
Saturday and Sunday at 1pm at Brunswick Picture House – definitely a show for the whole family!
