BTG 2015 Season Flyer

Coming to Crete Street Theatre in April 2015,  The First - An ANZAC tribute to the 1st AIF, in partnership with Beenleigh and Districts RSL and supported by the Qld Government as part of the Q100 Anzac Anniversary commemorations.  It is a unique opportunity for BTG to contribute to the community and be a part of this very significant event in 2015.

The story unfolds in the contemporary middle-class home of the Johnsons, located in Beenleigh, and then moves to the war-time Buckley family near Gympie with ‘snap-shot’ settings (scenes) in Egypt, on Gallipoli, the Western Front and London.  THE FIRST follows Paddy and Grace Buckley, their sons, daughters and extended family and friends in Australia and Overseas during 1914 –1919.  It is a story reflective of many Australian communities and families during WWI.  Promos_25Mar2015 THE FIRST  is a play, with music intertwining between scenes to highlight this moving story.  Music will be performed by the  A-Chord Community Choir, under the leadership of Lauren Davidson.  The ideas for this commemorative tribute was taken from Ted Egan’s work ‘The Anzacs’. Most songs, but not all, are from the same source with the kind permission of Ted Egan, and other relevant copyright authorities. We invite our Beenleigh Community to join us at the Crete Street Theatre in April to commemorate our ANZACS and the 1st AIF. Ticket prices for this special commemorative performance are $10 (adults) and $5 (students and children) Performance dates Sunday 12 April 2.00 pm Friday 17 April 7.30 pm Saturday 18 April 2.00 pm and 7.30 pm Wednesday 22 April 9.30 and 12.30 pm Friday 24 April 7.30 pm Saturday 25 April 2.00 pm and 7.30 pm
