The constant dilemma of opera in the 21st century: honour tradition, or aim for relevance and fresh audiences with a contemporary overhaul. Some of the best productions straddle both, and David Freeman's Magic Flute, seen in Melbourne at the Arts Centre, for the first time, does so reasonably successfully.
'The Small Poppies in Poppycock!' – Adam Brodie-McKenzie, Caitlin Croucher and Andrew Nichols - originally hail from Canberra, performing in ANU’s comedy revue before moving down to Melbourne.

Unspeakable 2009 part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, produced by Erin Davidson and supported by Gasworks Arts Park and Frankston Arts Centre, is a show so unique that it simply deserves to be seen.

Bubblewrap and Boxes is an entertaining and somewhat humorous children’s show set in the world of a strange, dusty limbo land full of homeless parcels and undelivered letters. With lots of giggles from the children and adults in the audience I am sure this is a show that both young and older will enjoy.
Reality Smites alright. Tom Middlebrook’s return to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival show was full of irony as I found myself in a reality of ear strain and obstructed vision while trying to follow a severely abridged (20 minute) version of a normally 55 minute show.
