The Belvoir St Theatre will be hosting a special pinball event this December, raising money for Belvoir’s Arts Access Program.
The Downstairs Theatre has been turned into a fully realised, 1970’s inspired pinball arcade called The Belvoir Bumper Bar, complete with some classic pinball machines, a handful of arcade games and a few classic consoles. You’ll be able to play to your hearts content for a mere $10, not bad for a night out and maybe a casual drink or two.
There’s another obvious reason why the Belvoir has turned its downstairs into my dream basement, and that’s to support the currently running live show ‘Girl Asleep’, playing upstairs at the same time and directed by Rosemary Myers.
In recent years we’ve come to know and love Matthew Whittet’s distinctive voice (Seventeen, Cinderella, Old Man). Now, from its season at the Adelaide Festival and the film version’s triumphant tour of the world, we present his hit collaboration with Windmill’s Director Rosemary Myers – a play about being lost in the jungle of teenagerdom and coming out the other side. Brace yourself for an explosion of hormones, imagination run wild, and the kind of 1970s design that would make Wes Anderson squeal with delight.
Both the pinball arcade and Girl Asleep will be playing from December 2nd (i.e. tonight!) until December 24th. Tickets are available for the show right here, but you can simply rock up to the bar between 5.30 and 10.30pm Tuesday’s to Fridays, 1.30pm to 10.30pm Saturdays and 3pm to 8pm Sunday’s.
