Bendigo Theatre Company is proud to be involved as the entertainment partner with the Bendigo Kids’ Christmas Concert for the fifth consecutive year and we want to make this show bigger and better than ever!
This year, things will be done a little differently with distinct ‘Singing’, ‘Dancing’ and ‘Combination’ ensembles which will allow for a lot of flexibility in our scheduling as well as the opportunity for more members of our community to get involved in an area they feel comfortable.
