Less than 2 weeks to 'Elisha' + Sydney Crash Course

Robert Turnbull

G'day everyone,

Hope you are going well.

Elisha PosterOur new show 'The Adventures of Elisha' opens in a week and a half. It will be fantastic - filled with drama, emotion and heaps of humour.

There are in all 12 shows open to the public. (10 in Victoria and 2 in Sydney).
A full list of the shows is at the bottom of this email, as well as here:
There you will find a map of all the venues and a calendar.

A printable version of the list of shows is here:

If you are on Facebook, you can RSVP to the Facebook event. You can see all the Facebook events here:

We are still happy to book in any more shows at different venues (in late October) - please contact me if you are interested and read this letter:

Front-of-house volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to help with the Front-of-house for some of the shows. This involves arriving a couple hours before the show, setting up the space, selling tickets, being friendly etc. Please reply to this email if you are interested.

Promotional material

All the 'Elisha' promotional material is out - including postcards, posters and a Promo DVD.

You can download any of these (including other graphics) from our 'Promo' page here:

You can watch and download the clips from the Promo DVD here:

If you would like a copy of the Promo DVD, postcards or photos - please email me.

Sydney Public Bible Reading Crash Course

While we are up in Sydney for the Elisha shows we are running a crash course in 'Public Bible Reading' at Sylvania Anglican. We're passionate about the reading of the Bible at church and we believe The Backyard Bard is uniquely placed to help churches do training in this neglected area.

Public Bible Reading Crash Course
Sylvania Anglican
Saturday, November 8th - 10am - 5pm
Cost: $35
Stick around in the evening for an Elijah show at the same venue and receive a $5 discount on your ticket for the show.

Here's what some people said from crash courses that ran earlier this year in Melbourne:

Extremely helpful.
Very encouraging & safe environment.
To come away with a story I could tell without looking at the words far exceeded my expectations.
Great the focus was on God’s Word, not on our performance.
Exceptional value for money (fantastic catering too!)
It was better than I expected. Very Practical.

That's it from me. I look forward to seeing you soon!
