Childers sugar his­tory will come to life

Isis Town and Country - - News -

A STORY which was writ­ten more than 100 years ago will come to life in the new mu­si­cal Raw.

The play, Red Soil, White Sugar, was writ­ten by Er­roll O’Neill in 1911 and was based on the sugar strike which cen­tred mainly around the Childers area.

PilotLight Pro­duc­tions Tony Carey has taken it in his stride to re­pro­duce the play with 35 lo­cal per­form­ers busily ex­er­cis­ing their vo­cals.

The mu­si­cal pre­miere will be at the Childers Cul­ture Cen­tre on July 29 fol­lowed by two more per­for­mances at the Childers Fes­ti­val.

If you can as­sist with be­hind the scenes con­tact Dianne Styles on 0401 561 381.

Tick­ets can be booked on­line www.bundaberg tick­ets.com.au or phone 1300 855 580.
