Once again in 2017, a huge number of talented young performers from across the Central Coast auditioned for a position in this year’s YIPA concerts. “The talent seems just to get better and better. Some of these young performers need to be seen to be believed!!” said YIPA’s Director, Karen Morrow.
There will be four fantastic variety concerts from Wednesday 24th May each evening through until Saturday 27th May at Laycock Street Community Theatre. There is something for all ages in everyone of our concerts. This year’s YIPA concerts offer a great variety of young talent between the ages of 11 years and 21 years old,
including vocalists, dancers, bands, instrumentalists, drama, magic and some combinations of those genres. More than 40% of this year’s performers are newcomers to YIPA and the quality just keeps on rising!
“YIPA is very appreciative of the support we get from our local businesses. This year, YIPA will see our young performers applying for approximately $15,000 in scholarships and encouragement awards. “We love being able to offer these awards to help young performers get a start in what could be a lifelong career in the
performing arts industry,” said Karen Morrow.
Tickets for YIPA are $22 for Adults and $19 for Pensioners & Students, which is great value for money. Tickets are available now via the Laycock Street Community Theatre website or phone 43233233.
Treat yourself to a night of extraordinary entertainment. You will not be disappointed! Looking forward to a memorable YIPA 2017!!

BASSMAN AND THE GURU
Sunday 14th May, 2pm – 5pm
Free Entry & Family Friendly
What a way to treat Mum on her special day! Incredible live music and scrumptious food from Harry Hardy’s. A bit of jazz, a bit of blues, a bit of rockabilly, and a story!
The Bassman was one of the most sought-after session players in New York. The Guru (now ex-guru) was one of the world’s best-known teachers of peace and mindfulness – until he was invited up on stage at Jerry Lee Lewis’ birthday party in Memphis and discovered a higher calling as a blues singer. The keyboard and drummer are two of Australia’s most in-demand studio musicians.

Kelly Day and Jane Hendry (both of Melbourne vocal gals The Nymphs) have a shared love of face-melting harmonies and murder mysteries. They bring these together in their new project ‘Broads’, which delivers a new, slightly criminally-minded take on the acoustic folk duo.
