Victoria State Ballet, The Little Mermaid | 20 October

The choreography by Michelle Cassar de Sierra is a stunning display of classical ballet with elements of physical theatre that magically tell the tale.

Brad Cox | 11 November
Australian country singer Brad Cox is taking his Acres tour on the road again, and this time he’ll be in Darwin in November, a first for him.
His Acre’s metro tour has played to packed houses at the Tivoli, Anita’s Theatre and Northcote and the Acres “Regional tour” will see Cox incorporate pieces from his “Yarns & Yodels” shows, which are acoustic and intimate gigs packed with storytelling, fan favourites new and old.
In a statement Brad said, “The ‘Acres’ album tour was such a success, and everyone was sad to see the end of it. So we have decided to take it to the regions, and for the first time, New Zealand. Darwin friends, you have been screaming at me for years and we’ve finally got it done. All I can say is the Barra better be on the bite. Plus, we have a couple of solo theatre shows to kick it off. What a mixed bag.”
