    I can't make it either! Got tickets to threepenny opera on at the exact same time as the matinee and i can't get home from the night ones - sounds fantastic though.
    And in the morning it was morning and I was still alive.

    Definitely. Despite it being my HSC year, (in terms of theatre) this is the first year I've gone out and seen as much as i can and I'm so happy I did - I hate missing out on things! Despite it being on pretty much the same time as trials, I'd be kicking myself if i had've missed once and for all! and same with the city and life of galileo (but i suppose that's kind of study.)

    Avenue Q tickets can now be bought for $180 for 4 people. Completely worth seeing at that price.

    Source: One of the ticket places on the internet. You should be able to find it if your interested.

    gah i'm such an idiot for being indecisive. tickets are sold out.

    i was hoping to steal some ideas for an upcoming griffin event, but i'm pretty sure one of the members in your YAP group will do it for us

    Hey, try this link: https://secure1.impactdata.com.au/Co...717F3&l=872045

    The link to buy the tickets on the main STC page shows they're sold out, because they're the non-YAP tickets. There are still a few YAP tickets to go.

    What error are you getting? I tried adding tickets to the basket and it worked. I also just bought a few tickets for my friends, so as far as I know, there are still a few tickets available.

    Re: Theatre Thread!

    Hurray for BOS! I missed out on getting the spot to introduce the event on the night, but I will try to give out a shoutout to BOSers anyway.

    Has anyone else seen the new STC program? I just got it today. AND OMIGGODDD. William Hurt will star in Long Day's Journey into the Night. No idea what the play is about, but William Hurt is one of from favourite actors who starred in one of my favourite movies ever, Children of a Lesser God (a film based on a play). Hugo Weaving, Richard Roxburgh and John Bell will also be in Uncle Vanya--another production of Uncle Vanya was shown at the Sydney Festival a few years back, not with these stars, but it sounds great. A Russian version of When The Rain Stops Falling (which showed earlier this year and is my 10/10 play), if you like. I'm freaking out from all the star power for next year. I'm getting my subscription now now now.

    holy fuck i just exploded. haha. after cate, hugo is my second favourite ever! that whole cast sounds amazing. also william hurt one sounds fantastic. So happy they're doing another version of when the rain stops falling - i missed it this year and was kicking myself afterwards. soooooooo happy!

    Re: Theatre Thread!

    Well...I didn't mean it's an exact Russian version of When the Rain Stops Falling...more like, the Russian equivalent, if you will.

    When are you putting in your subscription? This year, I got my package with my friend and sister, so I have to sit down and coordinate dates for next year before I can get the new subscription. I'm definitely planning to try to get in Night with the Actors for the William Hurt play, as well as Uncle Vanya. Loving how American-centric the program is!
