April 7th – 18th Oliver at The Clink

The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft that he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in. Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and the sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back.

Arj Barker

April 26th Arj Barker at the Port Douglas Yacht Club

Don’t miss this opportunity to watch Arj serve up a selection of his all-time greatest hits. This will be a night where he presents many of his classic routines by popular demand (and a few others by unpopular demand). Fresh off the back of a massive US tour with his pals, The Flight of the Concords (he starred as ‘Dave’ in their hugely popular T.V. series) Arj returns to our shores to prove once again why he is ‘the American we actually like’ and one of Australia’s favourite comedians full-stop.
