FOLLOWING a period of downtime while waiting for the necessary certification, the Proserpine Entertainment Centre is now getting ready to stage its first show.
Proserpine Entertainment Centre manager Katie Boyd said the PEC had all required certificates of occupancy, including the fire and safety certificate, and is not waiting on any further certification.
“The PEC Box Office, located in the foyer, is now open weekdays 10am to 5pm for people to purchase and collect show tickets,” Ms Boyd said.
“The Box Office will also be open two hours prior to any live performance, however, if customers can’t make it during these times, they can call our friendly team on 4945 0405, or visit our online Box Office via our website.
“Our first show is ‘Beyond the Sea’, on July 21, which is in the Morning Melodies timeslot.
“We invite the community to join us at the PEC as we welcome three classically trained Aussie larrikins to the stage.
“The trio will take the audience on a whirlwind musical journey around the world with songs from Spain, Cuba, France, Italy, Norway, England, the U.S. and Australia.”
Ms Boyd said the spectacular ‘Fairy Tales on Ice’ was coming to the PEC, in September, and urged people to book tickets, as it was already close to selling out.
“The audience will delight in the spectacular, as award-winning skaters bringing your favourite fairy tale characters to life through ice skating, singing, and music,” she said.
Ms Boyd said tickets sales were now open for SILENCE, by Kauri Projects, on September 9, and live performances of The Gruffulo, on September 15 and 16.
“We are also working on the application process for movies to be screened at the PEC and we hope to lock down blockbuster screenings in the next few months,” she said.
