New show to highlight the drought situation
FARMERS in the grip of drought have been doing it tough over the past decade and a new show on the Gold Coast is shining a light on just how bad things have been.
Australian Outback Spectacular’s new show, Heartland, is a multimilliondollar Village Roadshow project that will tug at the heartstrings, says Outback Spectacular general manager Shane Phillips.
“The new show is all about struggling Australians trying to deal with the drought,” he said.
“It’s about people trying to save their properties to pass on to the next generation. I would be surprised if anyone could get through the show without shedding a tear.
“We have new state-ofthe-art projection mapping technology that makes it so realistic you’ll feel it.”
The new production took about 12 months to develop and is replacing the previous four-year-long show, High Country.
Audiences will recognise a number of well-known faces in the cast.
