HOTA Releases 2020 Program Sneak Peek

With only two months left of the year, HOTA are raring to go for their 2020 season and have released a sneak peek of their upcoming program.

Home of the Arts, Gold Coast’s premier cultural facility, has brought together a wide variety of performance styles and genres across the 23 shows announced including cabaret, physical theatre and contemporary circus.

“We’re presenting more opportunities for people to experience the arts in different ways,” says HOTA CEO Criena Gehrke. “I’m talking workshops, live performances in unexpected places, great art, and of course the best Australian and International artists and companies performing indoors and out,” she says.

Some of the highlights of next year’s program include a retelling of the legend of King Arthur in Monty Python’s SPAMALOT; the return of Viral, a powerful physical theatre show created on the Gold Coast; and the much-loved puppet-show/rock-concert experience of Laser Beak Man.

HOTA’s upcoming season will also see big names grace the stage, with Kathy Lette’s hilarious Big Night Out and Emmy-winner, Lance Horne, reviving musical classics in Secret Broadway.

Noni Hazlehurst will appear in Mother, a one-woman show, and will be offering a free masterclass for performing arts teachers as well as an opportunity to share high tea with her biggest fans. Jonathan Biggins will be starring as Paul Keating in the one-man comedy show The Gospel According to Paul.

There will be plenty of performances that the whole family will be able to enjoy, with children’s book adaptations such as The Gruffalo’s Child, Grug, Fantastic Mr Fox and Magic Beach all part of the 2020 season.

The full list of the 23 shows announced so far can be found on HOTA’s website, with more to be added throughout the year.
