New Pop-up Theatre
There’ll be a new attraction in the Hunter Valley later this year after local theatre producer, Kath Perry, opens a pop-up venue in the barrel room at Kevin Sobels Wines in Pokolbin. The Hunter Valley Summer Theatre @ Sobels will present a variety of shows over nine weeks, following a Gala Opening on 28 September.
Perry’s aim is to provide professional entertainment for visitors and locals, alike. ‘We will be putting on six different shows over our first nine week season with performances mid-week, as well as at the weekends. The aim is to offer people great entertainment and a fun night out with comedy, drama, a musical and even a play that includes wine-tasting.’
Kevin and Margaret Sobels are both keen theatre-goers and welcomed the chance to host the theatre. ‘We think this is a great idea and are keen to see it succeed’, said Kevin. ‘We have plenty of space in the barrel room at that time of year and it would be hard to think of a better use for it’, he added.Read more: "News"
