Burnie's 2017 Performing Arts Subscription Season

The 2017 Performing Arts Subscription Season will be officially launched at the Burnie Arts & Function Centre this evening, and once again the season has something for everyone including Ten Days on the Island programming.

Special guest performances at the 2017 season launch included John X, Andrew Clorain and Andrew Casey, with ‘Tasmaniana’ an excerpt from Legends of Revue.

Burnie City Council Mayor Anita Dow said, “On the back of a very successful 2016 Subscription Season, the 2017 Season has a fantastic mix of shows – from local community theatre and musicals, to Bell Shakespeare’s The Merchant Of Venice.”

“The Burnie Arts & Function Centre continues to deliver the best program of performing arts in the region thanks to the generous support received from MMG Rosebery (who continue to support the artsUNEARTHED Arts for the Community Program), and Burnie City Council.”

“In 2017, the Burnie Arts and Function Centre will also continue its highly successful Open House Program which enables disadvantaged young people living in our region the opportunity to experience the magic of theatre.”
