A look back at some of the productions we have created!
Relax, Unwind, Enjoy
One autumn afternoon, lose yourself in the Mintaro Maze; Clare Valley; with a local South Australian singer/songwriter concert. Navigate your way to the end of the maze to find the concert or set up a picnic rug anywhere and settle in for the evening.
Make a wish in the centre of the maze at the fountain whilst enjoying local wine samples and nibbles.
Amahl & the Night Visitors
Amahl was a co-production between Emma Knights Productions and Karen Lattice Productions staged in December 2014 at the Space Theatre. An enchanting and inspiring fairy tale/fable about the transformative power of love, Gian Carlo Menotti‘s ‘Amahl and the Night Visitors’ stands alongside Dicken’s A Christmas Carol as a beloved Christmas classic. Essentially a play set to music, this one act opera/ musical (the most performed opera in the world today!) recounts the events: exciting, amusing, touching, poignant, life-changing and miraculous, of the night Amahl, a disabled shepherd boy, receives an unexpected visit from the Three Kings no less! This production showcased the prodigious talents of Finn Green and Aidan Hutson-Hill, in the company of some of South Australia’s finest opera singers and musicians.
In May 2017, Emma Knights Productions created a 1920s speakeasy in the stunning art deco Woodville Town Hall. As with all good speakeasies, the venue was kept a secret until the week of shows and you also received a password to get into the gin bar to have you prohibited gin in a teacup! This was all before the show began! Nominated for Best Professional Musical (anything over a profit-share) by the Adelaide Theatre Guide and winner of Best Professional Male – Jeff Lang, this was a very special production for both cast, crew and the audience. It received an overwhelmingly positive response and featured a truly superb local cast including Stefanie Rossi as Velma and Fiona Atkin as Roxie, Jeff Lang as Billy Flynn, Mark DeLaine as Amos and Melanie Smith as Mama.
Directed by Adrian Barnes, Choreography by Kerreanne Sarti and Musical Direction by Emma Knights.
