Local theatre takes to the stage at Burleigh Brewing

With three sell-out shows behind them, freshly formed theatre company Cherry Car Productions graced the stage at the Burleigh Brewing Taphouse performing their first feature length production, The One-Armed Bandit.

The shows spanning the 21st, 25th & 28th of January were an overwhelming success with people from across The Coast turning in with a Burleigh brew in hand.

The One-Armed Bandit is a physical theatre piece-come-musical for adults with the plot line revolving around a lead singer in an indie pub band losing his livelihood to pokie machines. Spawning from the minds of an English and a Drama Teacher, Chris and Carmen found that “Finding forms of creative expression beyond the classroom has certainly made us much better at our day jobs.”

Creating two top 10 – 10 minute plays for “Short and Sweet” in Brisbane, and winning best independent theatre company was the moment Carmen and Chris knew they were onto something.
