We invite you to ‘Explore the world of Drama’ as the magical and the everyday collide with a selection of plays which celebrate the exciting and sometimes dangerous world of fables and the charming and intimate (although sometimes equally dangerous!) world of family.
It’s New Year’s Eve 1999, and while the other residents of Still Waters Nursing Home are planning to celebrate, Oscar and Shirley Lindhurst will see out this new year just as they have nearly every new year since they arrived – in stony silence. Oscar and Shirley have forgotten what love really means and, just as it looks as if they’ll let a lifetime together slip away, they’re given another chance. As the rest of the residents gather for a millennium celebration, Oscar and Shirley travel back in time to their meeting as children in the 1920s, to the eve of war, then through the 50s, the protest era of the 70s and finally to the age of prosperity, the 1980s. They discover that while luck might help you find the love of your life – to keep it you really need to make your own.
Do I need to buy a ticket for my child who is in the performance?
No, performers do not need to buy a ticket to the show they are in.
There are so many performances, is my child performing in all of them?
This answer varies from student to student. Please refer back to your Rehearsal and Performance Schedule (RAPS) and ticket booking information sheets to see your child’s performance date(s).

VYT only – Students who attend two VYT classes i.e. Youth Theatre & Players, will occasionally have their repertoire performed across multiple shows. Where your child does not perform all of their repertoire in a single show and you must attend more than one performance in order to see everything your child has been working on, you are able to take advantage of the above discount offer, whereby if you purchase four tickets to one show, you will receive four complimentary tickets to your child’s other show.
When can I claim my discount?
The discount is only valid during the first month of ticket sales. You will not be eligible for complimentary tickets after this time.

My child’s performance is sold out
Stage School reserves a small selection of seats in the rear of the theatre in case family members miss out on booking tickets. If your child’s show has sold out, call Head Office ASAP and we will place you on an allocation list and endeavour to fulfil your ticket request in full. In the instance that we are unable to secure all of the tickets you are after, we will do our best to ensure each performer has at least one family member in the audience.
Performances are recommended as suitable for children aged 4 years and above. The standard duration of a performance is two and a half hours and performances may contain production effects such as strobe lighting, bright lights, smoke machines and loud music. You may be asked to leave the venue if your child is noisy or disturbing other patrons. If you intend to bring a child who is 12 months or younger to sit on your lap, please call to book your seat so that we can endeavour to allocate an aisle seat for you. All patrons over the age of 12 months must have a valid ticket and a separate seat. Please read further details regarding this policy in the Ticket Booking Form.
