Mamma Mia!

9 October – 11 November

Calling all Dancing Queens. Mamma Mia! is set to be the party of a lifetime and we know you won’t want to miss the chance to sing and dance along. Suitable for all ages, the performance follows bride-to-be Sophie on the hunt to discover the identity of her father and is inspired by ABBA’s timeless classics such as ‘S.O.S’ and ‘Take a Chance On Me’.

Tickets can be purchased here.

Adelaide Film Festival

10-21 October

This 11-day festival is the youngest screen event in the country but is by far one of the most innovative in every way. ADLFF debuts a number of Australian and international films, art and interactive projects that will leave you questioning and wanting more.
