We say Goodbye to Australia Day by Jonathon Biggins

and the members of the Coriole Council.

Maree – “we’ll i guess you wouldn’t pay yourself would’ya!

Wally – “I can just see Arthur Phillip getting out ‘the twitter’

We wish to thank all the cast & crew from both the Redland Museum and Magda Performing Artz shows for an outstanding effort by all involved.

Patron numbers exceeded expectations and all performances were met with a resounding applause. A lot of work went into the preparation and organisation of this show and the tireless work of many was rewarded with a fantastic, funny and inciteful show hitting the stage every night.

We thank all the actors who attacked their roles with enthusiasm and heart, the sound and lighting guys who setup and packed up equipment each and every night and added entertainment during the scene changes with the sound bites of phone calls to the council hotline, very amusing.

We would also like to thank Donna McGrath of Notemasters for the Musical Direction for the Redland Museum performances. We also thank both the Redland Museum and Magda Performing Artz for the wonderful locations at which Australia Day by Jonathon Biggins, was performed.

— Ray Noonan – Director – Australia Day 2017 & the MTG Committee
