Cosplay at Ky’s Plaza Theatre
Kyabram’s Plaza Theatre is being transformed into COSPLAZA for one very special evening.
The Cosplay event, which is offering people the opportunity to dress up as a character from a film, book or video game, is expected to attract plenty of attention at the historic Allan St venue.
Campaspe Shire Council mayor Chrissy Weller said it’s going to be exciting to see what costumes our community can create, with the event set to attract cosplayers from right across Victoria.
“Prizes will be on offer for the best costumes across various ages groups,” Cr Weller said.
“Keep your eye out for some, presumably friendly, fully functioning droids that have emailed their interest in attending. They have, however, indicated that these are not the droids you are looking for.
“Free pizza and hot chips will be on offer, with popcorn and soft drink available for purchase.
“To top off the evening a special screening of the anime masterpiece, Spirited Away, will be played in the theatre once the Cosplay formalities have finished.
“This is the first event of its kind in Campaspe and is being run in conjunction with the Victorian Government’s youth events program FReeZA.”
FReeZA is a Victorian Government initiative that supports young Victorians to get involved in their community by planning and running drug, alcohol and smoke-free events for other young people.
Of course the big kids, otherwise known as adults, are encouraged to come along as this will be an event to be enjoyed by all.
Entry to COSPLAZA is only $5, however those that dress up will be able to use their Jedi powers and enter for free. All Younglings and those under 12 will also enjoy free entry.
The event is on Saturday, July 16, from 6pm to 10pm with tickets sold at the door.
