Mandurah Performing Arts Centre production shows the brighter side of life

Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday celebrates two epic birthdays – 18 and 80 – major transition points in adult life.

One represents untold potential and opportunity; the other a lifetime of experiences, aspirations, fears and memories.

Scripted from intimate real-life conversations with people either side of these milestones, Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday is a beautifully warm and human show from Roslyn Oades and collaborators.

Playful and affecting in equal measure, this Melbourne Festival and Malthouse Theatre hit sees Oades continue her ground-breaking ‘headphone verbatim’ documentary theatre technique, which creates extraordinarily immediate and vivid performances.

The show runs at 7.30pm on Friday August 28 and Saturday August 29, with a 2pm matinee on Sunday.

Tickets for the show and more information are available at or by calling the Box Office on 9550 3900.
