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 by his grandson, award winning ABC presenter & performer, Joel Carnegie, STARDUST is a heart-warming musical quest to uncover what Col wanted us to know about his life by the things he left behind.
THE MISSION follows “Fighting
Gunditjmara” man Allan
McDonald off to war. As one of
the first Aboriginal soldiers from
Victoria to enlist, Allan fought at
Gallipoli and Beersheba, only to
be denied a soldier’s settlement
upon return and forced from
his traditional land. Told by his
great, great nephew, acclaimed
Gunditjmara actor Tom Molyneux,
THE MISSION tells the truth of
Uncle Allan’s struggle; fighting for
Country, for love, and for justice.
