Riverlinks’ 2018 season will kick off with Kate Ceberano and Paul Grabowsky, more than 200 people heard at the venue’s recent launch.
Held at Riverlinks Eastbank, the launch featured special guest performances from Initial Stages, Shepparton Theatre Arts Group and a capella group, Ginger and Tonic.
Riverlinks performing arts and conventions manager Ken Cameron said they were delighted to bring some wonderful productions to Riverlinks next year.
‘‘There is great variety as always so we are sure there will be shows to suit all ages and all tastes,’’ he said.
Popular musicians, acclaimed Australian theatre companies, classical music, performances for young adults, educational shows, family entertainment and community partnerships will all feature within the 2018 performing arts season.
Ms Ceberano and Mr Grabowsky will start the season with Love Songs which pays homage to some of the music which has influenced the artists during their lives.
Other musical acts include B2M in Mamanta, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and the Goulburn Valley Concert Orchestra’s annual concert.
The Australian National Piano Award will be returning to Shepparton next year.
Mr Cameron said they were particularly pleased to launch a new program where they would turn Riverlinks Eastbank into a colourful cabaret venue and bring audiences something just a little bit different.
Riverlinks will also introduce a new cabaret program, featuring circus/burlesque hybrid Retro Futurismus in collaboration with the Shepparton Festival.
After the success of the 2016 production of Dookie, Shepparton Theatre Arts Group is bringing it back, this time as a musical.
