LiMBOLAND is a poignant amalgam of true stories from around the country portraying the impact of natural disasters and the power of community when times get hard.

With a 35-year legacy, Full-On Theatre is a theatre company renowned for its commitment to authentic storytelling. Based between Byron and Lismore, their works are always inspired by true stories spanning personal narratives, community impact and global perspectives. Their performances are characterized by lively performances, comic elements, original live music, and powerful narratives, creating engaging and impactful theatrical experiences.

Full-On Theatre returns to the Northern Rivers with their new show, LiMBOLAND and an exciting free theatre-making and acting workshop for youth under 25!

A powerful multicharacter play depicting the struggles of survivors and the heroes who emerged from Australia’s unforgettable summer of 2020, played by Aurora Kurth and Dave Houston. LiMBOLAND takes to the stage with the true stories of fires, floods and storms by those left stranded in a tent city of broken dreams and the many who step up to give a helping hand.

Showing at the Brunswick Picture House with a complimentary gourmet BBQ and meet-and-greet after the show, those on the coast will get a first look at this brand new work, based on local stories.

Then, just in time for the floodiversary, they move to the Star Court Theatre. Two shows for the public, services and schools with a Q&A and debrief after the show and a complimentary drink on arrival with nibbles for the evening show.

Thanks to the support of the National Resilience and Recovery Agency, tickets to LiMBOLAND are subsidised to $5.

To ensure everyone feels supported and safe, there will be mental health first-aid support for anyone that just needs to sit with or speak with someone. It’s been one hell of a few years, and LiMBOLAND brings a welcomed voice to tell the stories of our area.

The project will also host free youth workshops – Full-On Theatre is excited to present a unique opportunity for aspiring young actors, with an exclusive day-long theatre-making workshop in Lismore. Led by Full-On Theatre Director, Dave Houston and acclaimed actress, Aurora Kurth, this program will provide an immersive and enriching experience in the world of professional theatre. Open to youth aged 13-25 years, topics of natural disaster and stories collected from the development of LiMBOLAND will be explored. Completely funded and free, the workshop will run from 9.30am to 5.30pm on Sunday, 25 February at the Lismore Workers Club with a catered lunch and performance for family and friends at 4pm that afternoon.

Full-On Theatre invites audiences to join them on a journey of authentic storytelling, where every show is a unique blend of entertainment, social impact, and a celebration of the human experience.

LiMBOLAND at Brunswick Picture House on Saturday, 17 February at 4.30pm and the Star Court Theatre, Lismore on Friday, 23 February, at 1pm and 7.30pm.Tickets from www.fullon.biz or scan the QR code for all the details and to book your places and tickets quick – spots are limited!
