Description

Presented by Goolarri Media Enterprises with Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company.

The boom went bust, and now Jono’s locked in a desert mine site’s donga, trapped in debt and a lifestyle that is slowly strangling his soul.

Jono’s wife Mary feels stuck in the high-flying life of the lonely FIFO parent and has decided they’d be better off cutting their losses and moving home to Broome, close to family and her younger sister Janey.

But the old neighbourhood, and her sister, aren’t what they used to be.

Description

When Dick Whittington became Mayor of London, he thought he had it all! But after finding local government wasn’t quite what he imagined he needed a new dream. When walking down the West End one evening he looks at the panto posters and noticing a pattern, he realises what he wants to do and where he needs to go…. Australia!

Dick arrives in Sydney and quickly finds becoming an actor isn’t quite that easy. A chance encounter with Australia’s most famous canine (and local Karratha legend) reveals the one place where he can make it. Dick and his new friends set off on an adventure of continental proportions. Will Dick make it to the audition on time, or does someone have other plans?

Dick Whittington Down Under takes audiences of all ages on a hilarious adventure filled with kooky characters, hilarious songs, daring rescues and some terrible puns. Written, produced and cast with an entirely local team, Pitter Pat Productions once again creates a unique experience by and for Pilbara people. Perfect for families, with something for everyone this tale about helping others to realise their potential is not to be missed.
