Mittagong Playhouse

The Southern Highlands. Not Mars. A mere 90 minutes drive from the GPO. By the  way it can take that long to drive to Manly.

Just down the M5 and the Hume Highway is the beautiful Southern Highlands. On 4 Young & Old Productions presents Willy Russell’s classic EDUCATING RITA  over 2 weekends at the Mittagong Playhouse.

Tickets are from just $25. No this is not a typo!

The Mittagong Playhouse is a wonderful performance space. It is very cozy, has plush seats, great heating and a wonderful cafe, very cutely called The Shaggy Cow.

This cozy 175 seat theatre has plush seats, great heating, and a wonderful café – The Shaggy Cow- https://www.facebook.com/theshaggycowcafe/?

The cafe is 50 metres from the theatre and is open for pre-show lunch or supper.

Come down and see why this Company won a CAT award last year! With great scenery, walks, wineries, and galleries – make going to the theatre part of a complete going away for the weekend experience.

A wonderful comedy drama , EDUCATING RITA tells the story of Rita, a young Liverpool hairdresser who signs up to an open university course in a search for more choice in her life.
