Give Mum an Experience to Remember this Mother's Day

Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue
We all love our mums and by gifting the experience of a live performance, you'll offer her a precious time to share and remember - especially if you've bought a second ticket so you can accompany her!

An evening at the theatre. A chance to dress up and enjoy stories that traverse legends, rumours, treachery and justice; they’re global, local and personal. And some of them are funny!

Mums are known to have a great sense of humour so The Joan puts comedy front and centre with The Wharf Revue 2018 by Sydney Theatre Company, where you will get to enjoy political satire like no other, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow featuring funny-makers from Australia and beyond, and an unexpectedly hilarious take on a journey through cancer survival as Daniel Tobias effortlessly draws us into the inspiring tale of his near-death experience in The Orchid & The Crow. A comedy about an atheist surviving cancer by finding God in Lance Armstrong - with songs! Part story-telling, part-theatre, with original songs, this brilliantly clever and ultimately moving story has been described by audiences as 'life-changing'.

Everybody remembers the story of Lindy Chamberlain. Accused of murdering her child, her claim – that the baby was taken by a dingo – was denied and discredited by zealous police and a flawed legal system. Filled with humour and heartbreak, Letters to Lindy explores the public’s relationship with one of 20th Century Australia’s most iconic figures.

Treat Mum to Bell Shakespeare’s masterful interpretation of Julius Caesar in a production that will leave her breathless. Experience the tension between aspiration and ambition, the triumphal entrances and brutal exits, as all is laid on the line for Rome in this masterpiece of intrigue and treachery.

Fancy a spectacular canapé - Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue is another brand-new play by Q Theatre, that mixes stories, politics and drinks for a raucous party of modernist mischief. Inspired by the history of Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest, Mum will get the chance to peer through the eyes of ‘the help,’ for a fresh take on Emu Plains in the 1950s.

And for those mums who love all things fine, The Joan continues to offer a deep and enriching experience of music, with The Summit Fine Music Series.

Australia’s angel, soprano Mirusia and her own Chamber Orchestra will wow the audience with her command of opera, musical theatre, pop and jazz styles in an exquisite winter evening performance on Saturday 30 June.

Four-Colour-Season takes a journey from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons to new Australian music in a selection of song and indigenous dance to match the patterns and movement of the Earth and the Aboriginal experience of the seasons.

Not to be missed, The Joan’s Concert Hall stage will be filled with not one, not two, not three… but eight grand pianos – an orchestra of pianos – with some of Australia’s most brilliant musicians at the helm. With Tamara-Anna Cislowska on board as Music Director, Eight Grands will be an evening of sophistication and indulgence Mum will love. 

For the art lover, take your mum to Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest at Emu Plains and enjoy the free Autumn exhibition –tactile and 5x5 and a lovely morning tea or lunch at the onsite Café at Lewers. Bookings and reservations can be made for Mother’s Day for 8am, 10am, 12noon and 2pm by calling the café 4735 4265.

Can’t decide on what shows Mum may like? It's not too late to pick up a great four or six show subscription to The Joan for Mum this Mother’s Day – give her the gift of time for herself and the enjoyment and mindfulness that come with a night out and a live performance!

We wish mothers everywhere a happy Mother's Day for Sunday 13 May, and we look forward to welcoming you to The Joan and Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest to celebrate.
