ELEANOR’S STORY

When: Sunday October 15th 2017

Time: Doors open at 4:30pm for a 5:00pm performance

Tickets: All tickets are $10 and are available from the Central Wheatbelt Visitors Centre or online at www.cumminstheatre.com.au

About the Show:

Ingrid Garner wrote and performs this adaptation of her grandmother’s award-winning autobiography, growing up as an American caught in WWII Berlin. In 1939, when she is nine, Eleanor’s family moves from America to Germany, but war breaks out as her family is crossing the Atlantic, and they cannot return to the United States. Eleanor struggles to maintain her American identity as she feels herself pulled into the turbulent life roiling around her. She fervently hopes for an Allied victory, yet for years she must try to survive the Allied bombs shattering her neighbourhood.

This stirring one woman show is a must see and gives a very human face to the tragedy of war.

Cummins Theatre, Bates Street, Merredin

5:00 pm Merredin Wamfest

WAMFEST

When: Saturday 28th October

Time: Doors open 5pm

Tickets: Admission is free

About the Show:

It was almost a decade ago that WAMFest (or the WAMis, as the festival was called then) last seriously spread the love out in the regions. With the skyrocketing popularity of WAM’s projects such as ‘Sounds Of’ compilation recording series and Regional Touring Circuits in recent years, we’re excited to announce WAMFest presented by Drug Aware is expanding to celebrate some of the incredible local talent found in regional WA the week before the metro festivities kick off.

WA’s biggest local festival will see six shows taking place in regional WA, with showcases held in Margaret River, Dunsborough, Bunbury, Merredin, Mandurah and Albany. Both Albany and Dunsborough will host Mini-WAMCons, with WAMFest Live Coordinators and ex-regional musos Mark Neal and Skinny O’Leary sharing music industry knowledge at free workshops.

To top it off, 21 regional acts – representing Peel, Great Southern, Wheatbelt, Kimberely and South West regions – will be showcased to metro audiences, with the WAMFest Live Closing Party / Regional Showcase helping close WAMFest on Sunday 5 November with a free, four-stage party held between The Railway Hotel and the Swan Hotel.

► MERREDIN SHOWCASE @ THE TIVOLI (Cummins Theatre)
Saturday 28 October – HARVEST NIGHT OFF
FEATURING: Pete Byfield, The Primary Collective, Refractory Road, and more

These events will see regional acts playing events in their hometowns, then having the chance to be part of the metro WAMFest and WAMCon events, allowing opportunities to network and connect with other regional and metro acts, plus music industry from all over Australia – and the world! Many will also showcase at twice during their time in Perth, providing better platforms for their careers to soar than ever before.

The regional programming expansion in 2017 has all been made possible with thanks to Drug Aware, Healthway, APRA AMCOS, the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and Country Arts WA, with State Government funding assistance from Royalties for Regions and Lotterywest.
