Let PK Entertain You

On The Terrace
FIFTY+SA Entertainment Writer, Paul Kitching, shares his most anticipated events in Adelaide this Summer, let PK entertain you!

Paul Kitching – aka PK – from Fuller Brand Communication has been out and about enough over his 50+ years to still have his finger on the pulse for the best things to see, do and enjoy in our excellent state. Whilst we all know life starts at 50, we also know what we like and are choosy about how we dedicate our precious spare time. PK reckons these gems are all worthy…

An Unfunny Evening with Tim Minchin and his Piano

Her Majesty’s Theatre

Thu Feb 8 – Sun Feb 11

The uber-talented Tim MInchin is only playing a handful of intimate, informal, solo dates in Australia this summer, where the set list will be fluid, the chat unplanned, and the vibe informal. Performing songs from his albums, from his musicals, Matilda and Groundhog Day, from his TV and film writing, and more this is a rare chance for Minchin, and song-writing, fans alike.
