What do Paul Keating, Adolf Hitler, Jesus and a golden underwater Ferrari have in common?
They are all featured in the 2019 Orange Civic Theatre program of shows unveiled on Tuesday night.
The theatre’s manager of performing arts Michelle Pearce said the 25 shows would offer variety.
“I am really [convinced] of it being entertaining and not getting it bogged down with what’s good for you,” she said.
Mrs Pearce said highlights would include The Wharf Revue coming back to Orange, Jonathan Biggins starring in his one show The Gospel According to Paul, based on former prime minister Paul Keating, Bell Shakespeare and John Bell performing again, the Sydney Symphony and noted international speaker Dr Gill Hicks.
