Description of Performance

This creative work was commissioned by the Queensland Music Festival (artistic director: James Morrison) as the signature regional event for the 2013 festival. With book by David Burton and music by Scott Saunders, this original music theatre piece was creatively developed and directed by Sean Mee under the overall control of creative Producer, Marguerite Pepper. The production was created using the stories of Gladstone and performed by over 300 local artists, school children and industry partners on the foreshore of the Gladstone Marina on a purpose built stage, designed by Josh McIntosh. The production played over 4 nights (18-21 July 2013) to an estimated audience of just under 20,000.
