Enjoy a smorgasbord of entertainment and comedy with a variety of quirky, uplifting and rousing acts featuring the Coolum-based Words@players performance poets and songwriters, the man himself Barry Charles, festival poetry king Ian Mackay, Bazza the Bush Balladeer, Nambour folk band The Karen Law Family Band, sound balladeer Herb Fenn, The Mindfulness Poet Brendan O'Shea, the upbeat ukelele queen and very irreverent Cherry Bright, Pomona's own ‘The Misfits’ and saxophonist Albertina Banks, a short one-act play written by Wendy O'Hanlon and starring the Foxy family, plus lots of surprise performances and cameos.

Coolum's words@players 'family' began in January this year as regular open-mic, spoken-word nights at Foxy On Coolum cafe. Hosted by Bazza the Bush Balladeer, Robin Fleming and Wendy O'Hanlon, words@players has evolved into a homegrown eclectic group of writers and performers aged from their teens to their 70s. Each performer has their different style of writing and delivery - either through words, sound or song. Three words@players were finalists in the 2018 Queensland Poetry Festival's Poetry Slam championships with Bohdi Whitaker winning the Sunshine Coast crown, Steve Whittaker runner-up for the Brisbane crown and Dave Knobel, winning the State crown! This Pomona Majestic Theatre performance is the first time the words@players have "taken their show on the road" - and what better venue than this beautiful theatre.
