A NORPA production
Dreamland is a dreamscape of life in regional Australia. A newbie wanting to hire the hall interrupts the ubiquitous late night committee meeting. A crash course in local history involves a number of axes and an unexpected lesson in the virtues of partner dancing!
Transporting us through different waves of settlement, from the Big Scrub, to hippies and tree-changers, Dreamland explores how communities adapt to change and renew themselves.
After a sell-out season at Eureka Hall in 2016, we are excited to be bringing Dreamland to the Bangalow A&I Hall in May 2019!
