THE rock 'n' roll road to stardom is a dangerous road indeed, littered with unsuccessful starry eyed hopefuls, wannabes, one-hit wonders and jaded 'if onlys'. While many bands self-implode before they even leave the garage, victims of classic clashing egos and personalities, few "make it”. One who did and are still packing houses is Australian iconic band The Radiators, who in 2018 will celebrate 40 years together since their very first show.
The Radiators have carved a niche in the archives of Australian rock history and shared the stage with great Aussie acts such as AC/DC, Rose Tattoo and INXS, with over 4000 shows to their credit. They have played their music to millions of people in Australia, recorded over 100 original songs, with two albums being awarded Platinum status, two achieving Gold and sales of over one million units.
The Radiators still tour extensively playing an average of 100 shows per year and the band's fans young and old, still flock to grab a slice of living Aussie rock history and dance the night away to the great catchy songs and classic hits that make The Radiators an iconic name in Australian rock music. Not to be missed at the Tewantin Noosa RSL on Sunday, November 18. Tickets are $25 for members and $30 for non-members of this club. Local solo support act, Shane Kells will open this show/date and warm up the crowd from 1.30pm. Doors open for this 18+ show at 1pm and The Radiators will hit the stage at 3pm. Tickets can be bought via phone on (07) 5447 1766 or in person at 1 Memorial Avenue, Tewantin.

CHRISTMAS LIGHT SHOW
RUDOLF isn't the only one who can light up the skies this December! Every year, Christmas in Cooroy showcases a truly magical light display. From the wondrous lighting of the Studio Steel Christmas tree outside the Cooroy RSL, through to the dazzling, twinkling decorations that our volunteers spend so much time hanging throughout Cooroy. But the stunning light show doesn't stop there as the Cooroy RSL has been working a little elfish magic of their own and are generously sponsoring a firework display to blow your socks off at Christmas in Cooroy.
The Cooroy RSL Fireworks will begin at 7.15pm on Saturday, December 1 in the peak entertainment period of Christmas in Cooroy. The show will light up the sky from Apex Park and is always a firm favourite with the crowds, young and old alike. We want all the good boys and girls to have fun and enjoy this spectacular light show, so make sure you pack earmuffs if you're not fond of loud noises.

THE LIND'S NEXT PRODUCTION
THE Lind's final play for the year is a terrific comedy, Four Flat Whites in Italy. Adrian and Alison have been looking forward to their long-awaited Italy trip for a long time - the art, the culture, the history. But when the couple they were planning to go with drop out, their new neighbours invite themselves along. Loud, obnoxious Harry and his 'trophy wife' Judy are the opposite of retired librarians Adrian and Alison, and the trip looks set to be a little... different than they'd planned. Playwright Roger Hall excels in putting real characters in 'interesting' situations, and you'll love watching bookish meet boorish in this hilarious yet heartfelt comedy. Will it be the holiday from hell? Lind regulars will know that director Julian White is an old comedy hand, and audiences are guaranteed a fun night out.
Four Flat Whites in Italy opens November 9 at 7.30pm and continues until November 17 at Lind Lane Theatre, 16 Mitchell Street, Nambour. Book online, go to lindlane.com.au or phone 1300 732 764.

WIL ANDERSON - WILEGAL
WIL Anderson is one of Australia's best-loved comedians and travels the world performing comedy to sold-out crowds. Last year he took a flight to Wagga Wagga and a funny thing happened to him on the way to the show. Wilegal is a brand-new hour of comedy all about that fateful day and will tour the country across 2018 with shows added in Bendigo and Pakenham today. It promises to be an arresting hour of hilarity about being arrested. It's often said that Wil Anderson makes comedy look effortless, but he works pretty damn hard at making it appear that way. On Saturday, November 17 at 7.30pm at The J Theatre, 60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Junction. Price: $55 Adult / $50 Concession. Buy tickets online, go to thej.com.au. Box office is lcoated at 60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Junction or phone (07) 5329 6560 for more.
Over the last 20 years he has become one of the world's finest stand-up comedians, headlining comedy festivals in Australia and across the globe. The superlatives bandied around in the name of promoting comedians can sometimes feel over the top but in the case of Wil, the praise has been hard earnt.
Wil has a reputation for delivering an outstanding, brand-new hour of comedy every year and Wilegal promises to be his best, and most fascinating, show yet. Wil has won the People's Choice Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival a record six times. Smart, always fresh, unmissable.
THE CRUMBLETOP CAPER
THIS is the next laugh show in at The Independent Comedy Theatre, at Yandina. The Crumbletop Retirement Village is like no other (we hope). It's run-down, it's gloomy and its residents depressed, but there's a newcomer who may change all that, Stella. Meet Stella and the wonderful Crumbletop characters in this laughter-filled show to be staged at the Yandina School of Arts and end the year with a light-hearted two hours, of entertainment. The Crumbletop Caper is a riotous romp through the streets of the Crumbletop Retirement Village. It's the place where nobody wants to be. Rundown, tired and a vacuum for retirees.
There are no activities, the Men's Shed has been taken for storage, the swimming pool emptied and the Commandant-like manager, Mrs Horace Comecrosse, levies charges on everything, including visitor-parking. Into this zombie world comes Stella Dibblewhite, intent on making things livelier. "My late ex-husband left me a Crumbletop unit in his will”. Elsie Prosser replies "So he hated you to the very end eh?”
Stella loses the battle to make a change, but when Crumbletop is sold there's another chance looming.This very funny Independent Theatre comedy will be on-stage at the Yandina School of Arts at 4pm Saturdays, November 17 and 24 and December 1 plus 2pm Sundays, November 18 and 25 and December 2. It's table seating in air-conditioned comfort with complimentary tea and coffee. Snacks and wine on sale. Tickets $25, concessions $23, members $20.
