We recognise the power of the arts to not only entertain, but also to provide comfort and connection, especially during these challenging times as COVID-19 continues to have an impact on live performance. This is why The Show Must Go On at Adelaide Festival Centre, even if that means bringing the wonderment of our theatres to the comfort of your couches.
We will be updating The Show Must Go On frequently, so be sure to visit often for the latest online works. Also, don’t forget to follow #MyFestivalCentre on social media where we’ll be digging into the Adelaide Festival Centre archives.
