Book Week 2017 & 2018

24 June 2017

1. if you haven't booked a show for book week this year - there's not much chance of getting one.

Unless you live in Melbourne and want a show for P - 2. Sarah, from the wonderful The Reading Bug show (image above), has just freed up some dates allocated to international performances to meet the demand in Melbourne. She still has some dates left! Hurry, book here.

If you want a show for P - 6 in Victoria, once again, why not think laterally and book the Mad Hatter? There are some book week dates left.

2. Why not book now for 2018? All our book shows will be offering great shows next year (even if they're not decided yet). Get in now and save the stress of doing it next year! It's cheaper too! All of the Companies on this link will offer book shows next year.

Legacy of the Fitzgerald Enquiry

13 June 2017

Yet another brilliant 4 Corners program last night reminded us of the extent of the corruption in Queensland, how Chris Masters' 4 Corners Moonlight State report in May 1987, resulted in the Fitzgerald Enquiry, which further revealed the extent of corruption and led to the resignation of the Premier, Joh Bjelke-Petersen and sent top police and crime bosses to jail.

Now, 30 years later, Tony Fitzgerald (pictured above) is working with the Australian Institute to survey politicians about their ethics as part of a plan to develop a federal anti corruption body. Twenty-two prominent barristers, academics and former politicians support the plan.

Mr Fitzgerald says Australian society is gradually becoming less egalitarian and more cynical as the gap between the haves and have-nots widens – and he blames the economic policies and attitudes of today's politicians.

Read more detail here. It's pretty damning.
