Let PK entertain you

FIFTY+SA Entertainment Writer, Paul Kitching, shares his most anticipated events in Adelaide this winter.

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…

Come In Spinner

Adelaide Festival Centre

Sunday 11 June

In an Adelaide Cabaret Festival premiere, three-time ARIA Award winner Vince Jones performs the much-loved songs from the popular ABC television series Come In Spinner soundtrack. This Double-Platinum album won the hearts of thousands of Australian households, selling over half a million copies in the decade of its release and making history as the highest-selling Australian jazz album of all time. Accompanied by his dynamic 17-piece orchestra, the man with the voice from heaven will deliver the classics from Porter to Gershwin to Ellington.

PS! My other hot tips for the Adelaide Cabaret Festival include Paris Combo, Dr Trevor Jones, It’s A Sin, Eddie Perfect, Blind Date, & Kate Ceberano with the ASO!


Disney On Ice presents 100 Years of Wonder

Adelaide Entertainment Centre

Friday 23 June – Sunday 25 June

Can you remember the first time you saw a Disney show on ice? A truly wonderful thing to experience. This show will celebrate 100 years of Disney with all the favourite characters and stories you know and love. Maybe this is a chance to relive those memories or create new ones. It’s set to be an adventure for the whole family, filled with world-class skating, high-flying acrobatics, unexpected stunts, and wow-moments both on the ice and in the air!



Thebarton Theatre

Friday 30 June

Yes, it’s THE actual band 10cc from the ‘70s performing live in Adelaide! Among the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, 10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure. You know the hits “I’m Not In Love”, “The Things We Do For Love” and of course “Dreadlock Holiday” with its instantly recognisable chorus “I don’t like cricket – I love it!”. 10cc leader and original member Graham Gouldman says “The band is sounding fantastic! Hit after hit after hit. It’s relentless. We show no mercy.” With songs that just don’t date and over 30 million albums sold worldwide, this will be one amazing show!


Mary Poppins

Adelaide Festival Centre

Saturday 1 July – Sunday 30 July

Clearly it’s supercalifragilistic that this new production of one of the world’s most loved tales flies into Adelaide for all of July! We can’t wait to see the world’s favourite Nanny come to life on stage with dazzling choreography, incredible effects, and unforgettable songs all promised to make this one brilliant production. Featuring the likes of Stefanie Jones as Mary Poppins and Jack Chambers as Bert, this triumphant theatrical experience is a must-see for 2023!

RELICS: A New World Rises

South Australian Museum

until Sunday 23 July

One for young and old, this popular LEGO® exhibition by artists/creators Alex Towler and Jackson Harvey (winners of 2020’s C9 LEGO® Masters) is proving to be a massive hit for the Museum. Using a collection of old and forgotten objects to house miniature worlds built of LEGO®, each display weaves intricate constructions into unique objects. It’s full of nostalgia, curiosity, and discovery with a strong sustainability message throughout. Make sure you do the scavenger hunt, and also try to find the Alex & Jackson mini-figures in every ‘world’!
