Jetty Theatre Update
Dear August Tour
Starring Darren Coggan & Olivia Coggan | Friday 9 June, 8pm
This June, something special is coming to the Jetty with the father-daughter duo Darren Coggan and Olivia Coggan. A project born from a 2021 lockdown, Darren and Olivia dedicated this time to writing
and recording a seven- track EP ‘Dear August’. The original album focuses on the universal values they each hold true and will be performed along with a selection of favourites from Darren’s albums and concept shows. An engaging combination of emerging talent and a seasoned performer, Dear August certainly is a most beautiful lockdown project.
Luke Kidgell – Happy Hour | Monday 12 & Tuesday 13 June, 6pm & 9pm
Luke Kidgell is bringing the lols to Coffs with his brand new show ‘Happy Hour” (which is actually 90 minutes long FYI). With an online audience of over 3 million fans, Luke is known for his energetic and occasionally outrageous shows full of audience interaction and lightning-fast wit. It’s very easy to get lost in an online rabbit hole of Luke’s funniest 30-second clips but incomparably better to see him work the room in person so come join us for a weekday giggle.
