Celebrating 15th Birthday of Henry Lawson

Como Henry Lawson Appreciation Group Inc

are proud to present:

“Reedy River” a musical play by Dick Diamond 1953

The title is one of Henry Lawson’s famous poems set to music by famous original “Bushwhacker” Chris Kempster.

The show is steeped in Australian colonial history set in the after math of the Shearers Strike in 1891 where the shearers were defeated. Not so much about the strike as the spirit of the strikers.

The songs are of Australian folklore our songs with tunes from widely different sources with words to ground them in Australia. Under the direction of Tony Guyot (FAMS, Genesian Theatre) and musical direction of Deb Jones (Solidarity Choir) and starring the talents of Lisa Stewart and Jareth Norman.

Followed after a short break with
 

“DEAD MEN TALKING”

Warren Fahey and Max Cullen as Banjo Paterson & Henry Lawson

Starring Max Cullen as Henry Lawson and Warren Fahey as Banjo Paterson (on concertina)

Created by Cullen and Fahey ‘Dead Men Talking” has received rave reviews and sold out shows wherever they have taken it.

Now we are excited to present them here for the first time in the Sutherland Shire.
