Take Off On A Out Of This World Outdoor Adventure In Isaac

A free under-the-stars production packed with space-aged belly laughs are set to charm audiences as it returns to Isaac with a sequel.

The NQ Starshine and Full Throttle Theatre Company have teamed up to bring seven outdoor shows of Astronomical 2 to Isaac in September and October.

The audience will be guided through the history of the universe as seen through the eyes of Nicholas Copernicus, Edwin Hubble and others.

Mayor Anne Baker said Isaac Regional Council supports diverse arts and cultural events across the region.

“Delivering belly laughs as it explores the universe, the audience participates by looking at the various astronomical wonders through large computer controlled telescopes,” Mayor Baker said.

“The magical cast will lead the audience through space with nuggets of science intermixed with the historical twists and turns from the characters’ perspectives.

 “The play is an outdoor production, where the sky is dark and the planets beckon.”

Astronomical 2 will take off on its out-of-this-world outdoor adventures at the following locations, starting from 6.30pm:

  • Carmila Sports Field, Music Street, Carmila on September 14
  • Michael E Nicholas Oval, Centenary Drive South, Ovals Access Road, Middlemount on October 13
  • Bottom Oval, Clermont Sportsgrounds, Clermont on October 17
  • Dysart Soccer Field, Leichhardt Ovals Complex, Fisher Street, Dysart on October 18
  • Coppabella State School Oval, Coppabella on October 19
  • Nebo Showgrounds, Bowen Street, Nebo on October 22
  • Maddern Oval, Gilbert Avenue, Glenden on October 23.


To give everyone a chance to experience looking through six large computer controlled telescopes, attendance is limited.

Only 200 tickets are available at each location with a limit of five tickets per person.

Tickets will not be available at the venues. It is essential to pick up free tickets from your local Isaac library.

The audience must bring their own chairs or blankets to sit on. They may bring a picnic or buy refreshments from the canteen.

Six of the performances are being funded through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), a partnership between the Queensland Government and Isaac Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

The Coppabella show is being funded using Community Drought Support Funding from the Department of Communities.
