RENT

Set in the Big Apple, RENT is a powerful tale all about falling in love, finding your voice … and living for today. Based on Puccini’s beloved opera La Bohème, RENT traverses the rocky terrain of a year with a group of impoverished, artistic friends living in Manhattan’s East Village. Their dreams, losses, and loves weave through this award-winning musical to paint a stunningly raw and emotional portrait of the gritty bohemian world of New York City in the late 1980s, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS.

  • 1.30PM & 8.00PM
  • $50

Pasta Making – The Craft & Co Collingwood

Don’t let your life spiral out of control, and get it together with this pasta making class. We’re tortellini in love with the idea of making our own pasta, and you should too! Say pasta la vista to all the store-bought pasta, and make some fresh ones yourself. So roll your sleeves up and put some elbow grease in it. We’ll spare you from more pasta puns because they don’t bolognese here.

Don your Tracky Dacks for Sick Kids this May

We all love our tracky dacks, and now we have a great reason to wear it all the time! It’s time to dack up and donate to raise funds for the sick children in hospital. The act of wearing trackies is a sign of solidarity, with sick children in hospital often encouraged to change into trackies to feel more comfortable. Anyone can take part in Tracky Dack Day, by simply choosing any day in May to wear tracksuit pants and donate to the cause. So let’s all dack up in the month of May, and support all the sick children in hospital.
