Comedy, Cabaret and Kids at Bondi

The Bondi Theatre Company will stage the locally written comedy Bondi Legal at the Bondi Pavilion in October 2019 as part of its season of comedy, musical cabaret and children’s theatre.

The comedy – celebrating its 10th anniversary – is inspired by  a case the playwright Tony Laumberg took on when he was a young solicitor.


Coral Drouyn takes a look at what’s on offer, along with sunshine and sand, at the Gold Coast’s Home Of The Arts.

Let’s be honest, no-one moves to the Gold Coast for the Arts scene. The weather, the beaches, the café culture, the fact that you can donate all your sweaters to Lifeline; they’re all factors. But culture? Not so much.
