The much-loved Morning Melodies series continues to be a popular choice for regional concert goers, with its matinee format, affordable tickets ($15 per show or $60 for a six-show season) complimentary morning tea and raffles and prizes from local businesses.
Going for more than a decade, Morning Melodies attracts the “leisured classes” who often buy a six-show season ticket to enjoy the glamour and charm of music from all eras.
In addition to a strong local following, visitors are bussed in from Biloela, Baffle Creek and Agnes Water.
Alan and Bev Wedemeyer travel to Gladstone regularly for Morning Melodies and say each visit has been lots of fun, with great performances.
Doug and Noela Sorensen have been coming for 10 years, often attending the whole season.
“We love the food and the atmosphere and we always have a great time,” Noela said.
Just like at every show held at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre, our fantastic Friends of the Theatre volunteers ensure visitors to Morning Melodies can find their seats, and feel welcome and comfortable. They do a terrific job.
