Win a double pass to Love's Labour's Lost
The King of Navarre and his entourage, sign an oath, to forego all worldly pleasures for three years and devote their lives to celibacy and the study of all things masculine. But can the boys keep their promise when the Princess of France and her posse arrive? That's something you will find out if you attend Tropic Sun's forthcoming production of Shakespeare's "Love's Labour's lost" or, if you are successful in Magnetic Times' nifty new competition.
Love's Labour's lost is being performed at Queen's (botanical) Gardens in North ward from 6.30pm on Tuesday 2nd September, running for 2 weeks (to Saturday 13th Sept)
This delightful play, set in France, and with much of the action in parklands of palaces, is a wonderful fit for the glorious setting of the botanical gardens
It's romance at twenty paces and while all's fair in love and war the winner of our competition has a challenge: a lovely labour and one not to lose.

Love's Labour's Lost is directed by the gifted Terri Brabon, and with a special cameo performance from Brendon O'Connor. Terri and Brendan were both members of the Tropic Sun ensemble in the early days of their careers and are now coming back from Melbourne, where they have been based in recent times, to rekindle their bonds with the team up here.
Brendan is a "TV face" that everyone recognises from Neighbours and similar shows, he is also a remarkable straight actor. All the other key parts are played by professional actors from the Tropic Sun Company; however, this is Tropic Sun's annual "sharing" with the community, and the company have several of Townsville's best and most experienced community actors in supporting roles.
We have also learned from Tropic Sun's Lorna Hempstead that the play's running time is Islander friendly - everyone returning to the Island will make the 10pm ferry comfortably.
