GC Word on the Street #138

Good morning - Welcome to July! The weather may be wet but that doesn't mean we have to stay indoors, with plenty of booze, music and good times to keep those rainy day blues away.

Hair The Musical | October 11 -12 @ HOTA

Do you count yourself as a rockstar, a rebel or a rule breaker? Well you're not alone...

Set in the swinging 60's and coming to Home of the Arts in mid-October, Hair is the original tribal rock musical, following the rule breakers and rebels of the time who are fighting for their freedom and begging for change. Celebrating our progress and making us question how far society has really come all at the same time, this fabulous musical is a truly unforgettable experience.

Bohemian Rhapsody Under The Stars | July 12 @ Circle on Cavill

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
