Opera Factory presents a fringe festival of 5 short productions in the heart of Newmarket from Thursday 18th to Saturday 27th March. Featuring two alternating programmes of double or triple bills, sung in English, suitable for all ages and starring up and coming performers.
Five short productions with varied settings from 18th century to the 1950’s - fully staged and costumed, this festival offers something for all. Ominous omelettes, mistaken identities, tragedies at sea, divine divas and persistent phone calls are the key ingredients of ‘Four Comedies and a Funeral’.
The festival season is limited to 10 performances and a super special combo price is available to enjoy the whole festival if you book for two performances - see all 5 shows for only $40. Single programme tickets are $35 and concessions are available for seniors, students, children and groups.

• Programme B is a double bill and features Thomas Arne’s pastorale English comedy ‘Thomas & Sally’ followed by Menotti’s delicious 1950’s domestic American comedy ‘The Telephone’.
