The Peasant Prince - Gladstone

  • Free WiFi
19 July 2016
Presented by GECC AND Monkey Baa Theatre Company. Shows at 11:00am and 1:00pm. Li Cunxin’s iconic autobiography Mao’s Last Dancer was first published as a children’s picture book, The Peasant Prince. Monkey Baa is honoured to be adapting this story onto the stage. Li, a 10-year old peasant boy, is plucked from his village in rural China and sent to a ballet academy in the big city. He leaves everything and everyone he knows, including his beloved parents. Over years of gruelling training and determination, this boy transforms from an impoverished peasant to a giant of the international dance scene. Li’s courage, resilience and unwavering hope for a better life makes The Peasant Prince a story to ignite our own aspirations to be the best person we can be. This is a perfect production to explore intercultural experiences, texts from other countries and times and stories exploring peoples and cultures of Asia, and curriculum links to English, The Arts and Social Sciences. Audiences will be captivated by this inspiring story. Definitely not to be missed!

International super star ‘Queen of 70s Pop’ Helen Reddy will wow the audience with her amazing show – I Am Woman. With 15 singles in the American top 40 and three #1 hits in the same year, her signature tune, ‘I Am Woman’ became the feminist anthem of a generation and earned her the honor of becoming the first Australian EVER to win a coveted Grammy Award in the USA. During her extraordinary career she starred in Hollywood movies and on the West End, played to sellout houses in Vegas and around the world, was the first Australian to host her very own variety show on an American network television and the first woman in the United States to hold a mortgage and a credit card in her own name. She helped kick start the careers of both Peter Allan and Olivia Newton John. And then she lost it all. In this beautiful one woman show, Nikki Bennett’s performance captures the essence of this amazing artist through her life story, with all of its astonishing highs and lows.
