Merredin Stardust & The Mission

July 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Two powerful yet forgotten Australian stories uncovering our past to reveal who we are today.

Performed by award-winning ABC presenter & performer, Joel Carnegie, acclaimed Gunditjmara actor, Tom Molyneu.

STARDUST tells the story of bandleader and trumpet player, Col Brain. Before he died, Col placed his most prized life possessions into a cupboard and locked it up, never to be opened again. But what was inside? Told through the eyes of his grandson – award winning ABC presenter & performer, Joel Carnegie – herein lies the discovery of a time capsule of Australian musical life, in a heart-warming quest to uncover what Col wanted us to know about his life by the things he left behind.

THE MISSION follows the journey of “Fighting Gunditjmara” man, Allan McDonald – one of the first Aboriginal soldiers from Victoria to enlist for war. He fought at Gallipoli and Beersheba, only to be denied a soldier’s settlement on his ultimate return to Australia and forced from his land at the Lake Condah Mission. This captivating and rollicking story, told by his great, great nephew, Gunditjmara man Tom Molyneux, tells the truth of Uncle Allan’s struggle; fighting for Country, for love, and for justice.

Experience this award-winning double bill at Cummins Theatre, Merredin on the 9th July, and meet two ordinary individuals, whose extraordinary lives still reverberate to this day.

Tickets $40 adult, $35 concession, $30 children available online or in person at Central Wheatbelt Visitor Centre
