FocusTheatre’s Cabaret featured The Wharf Revue’s Phil Scott entertaining with a selection of Noel Coward, Irving Berlin and his own works and partnering young singer Vincent Hooper from their hit cabaret The Twink and the Showgirl.


John Turnbull’s poetry performance from Plato to Shakespeare to Whitman to Ginsberg was hilarious; magician Graham Kite was pretty naughty; Alice Livingstone Director of Focus Theatre was a fabulous MC as well as leading a treasure hunt. I won tickets to their next show. Lucky me.

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
