Originally performed on stage, Windmill Theatre Company's Rumpelstiltskin is making its way to the Roxbylink Cinema!
This latest imagining of the mischievous imp was filmed by Australian National Theatre Live, and will be presented to the people of Roxby Downs for Book Week.
According to Country Arts SA's Arts Programming Manager, Louisa Norman, the original stage production had a successful run in Adelaide back in 2016, and if you think you know the story of Rumpelstiltskin - think again!
Representatives from the West Adelaide Football Club have this week made their way to Roxby Downs, running training sessions with local football teams and school students.
Gemma Prendergast, WAFC's dietician, dropped in on RoxFM's Hub Cap to talk about the free nutrition sessions she's running in town.
The first session will be held at 10am at the Community Youth Centre and is all about nutrition for children.
For the second year in a row Andamooka is taking part in the South Australian Living Arts Festival for the whole month of August.
This time around a colourful display of mosaics adorn the fencing around the community garden running along side the community hall.
This year, artist Heather Gordon shared her passion for mosaics with the residents of Andamooka, teaching them the ins-and-outs of the medium and providing some of her own work to display in the garden.
"It's a bit funky, and there are lots of cool things to see," says Pip Stafford from the Andamooka Yacht Club, which is housed in the community hall.
Having improvised over 1,500 shows, Adam Page promises that no two performances are the same - each gig is a world premiere!
The Adelaide based performer is headed to Roxby Downs as part of a Country Arts SA music tour, prides himself on making each performance as unique as possible.
Adam, who originally trained as a saxophonist, will be bringing up to 15 instruments with him when he performs at the Roxbylink Auditorium, from traditional instruments like keyboards to the lesser known nose flute.
Using a loop pedal, Adam plays a piece of music with one instrument and keeps adding more instruments over the top, playing whatever comes into his head to create a new sound each time.
Listen back to Adam's interview with Aussie Music Hour:

Over 15 years and 21 shows, they’ve mercilessly mocked all the usual political and celebrity suspects. We’ve watched Howard Tampa with refugees, Rudd give pennies from Kevin, Gillard refuse to be lectured by ‘that man’, ‘that man’ scrap the carbon tax, stop the boats and – um – get the budget back into surplus… But no one has been able to outplay, outwit or outlast The Wharf Revue. So, we’re throwing a party and everyone’s invited.
ANT Live were there to capture this Sydney Theatre Company presentation live on film and now your community can see it up close on the big screen!
