FIERY sculptures on the beach, musical theatre, glow lights and spaceships form what’s in store for the next performance season of Albany’s Southern Edge Arts (SEA).

Youth performing arts festival Living on the Edge will comprise four separate shows inviting the public to take a step inside the world of theatre and drama and get a taste of the talent buzzing around in the region.

Return of the Sun will take place at Middleton Beach on October 5 as a way to say goodbye to winter and welcome spring and summer.

Expect spinning flames and burning sculptures for this free family-friendly event.

Recent addition to the Albany Light Opera and Theatre Company Emma Davis is hosting a series of musical theatre workshops during the school holidays which will culminate in a cabaret showcase on October 11.

Young people are invited to come along with their favourite song to perfect as well as learn a group song to sing together.

MOON_SHIP 2020, a production directed by Denmark council Town Ward candidate Nelson Blake Gilmour, is loosely based on the 1954 novel Lord of the Flies and will be performed on October 18 and 19.

It also celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing and will star the whole Southern Edge Arts Theatre Ensemble.

To close Living on the Edge, a Glow Show circus performance will be presented on October 25 and 26.

Acrobatics and aerial work under UV lighting, directed by Albany’s Cassy Turner, will keep everyone on their toes.

Tickets to the shows can be purchased online at
