FAM is touring!

The Cafe Sessions are back in July at Bright, Wandiligong, Porepunkah & Harrietville. Two brand new original comedy sketches before Pauline Thompson & Jenny Packham hit the road on 9 July Bright to Bundaberg!

Friday 9 September Sideshow Alley will be at the Albion Hotel Albury before crossing the mountains to the Albion Hotel Swifts Creek Friday 11 November then on to Stratford’s beautiful Courthouse Theatre on Saturday 12 November.  All going well an arts grant will see Pauline, Jenny and Fiona Yagmoor remaining in East Gippsland for The Cafe Sessions Workshops and Performance Project for communities at Nowa Nowa, Orbost & Deligate.

Then on Sunday 12 December it is the return of The Muddling Magician Panto at the Albion Hotel Albury. So FAM has a full dance card until Christmas – such fun.
