The Mayor of Greater Shepparton, Cr Anne McCamish, will officially launch the Riverlinks program for 2004 on Friday 6th February at 7.00 pm at Eastbank.
Cr McCamish said Greater Shepparton patrons had a great year of entertainment to look forward to this year.
“Local audiences in 2004 can expect an exciting line up of performances at Riverlinks. This year’s program highlights among other performances, a number of world class Australian companies and performers, presenting works with a strong Australian component,” she said.
The launch will include acoustic entertainment from Bianca Fenn and Ryan Meeking, a performance from the children’s chorus from Shepparton Theatre Arts Group’s upcoming production of Annie, and Catriona Rabl, who will appear as Judy Garland. A light supper and refreshments will be provided.
Mr Rob Robson, the Council’s Manager of Performing Arts and Conventions, said this year’s program is packed with a diverse and interesting collection of entertainment.
“The quality of performers coming to Greater Shepparton in 2004 is a testament to the commitment of the Council to bringing arts and entertainment in the region,” Mr Robson said.
“We will be giving one patron who attends the launch an opportunity to see everything this year’s season has to offer, as everyone who attends will go in a draw to win a complete 2004 subscription package”.
“This year’s season is outstanding and will provide a varied and quality selection for all patrons,” Mr Robson concluded.
There will be an opportunity to purchase subscription packages for the 2004 season at the event. One lucky person who purchases a package at the launch will be refunded their money and win their package free of charge.
Please RSVP at the Riverlinks Box Office on 5832 9514 to attend the launch, or for further information. A brochure of the 2004 Riverlinks program will be available free of charge from the Riverlinks Box Office at Eastbank, Welsford Street.
