    WILLOW BLUES - 2014 production

    ***PLEASE NOTE: CHANGE OF DATE FOR AUDITION WEEKEND ***
                                   
    Discover the extraordinary hidden within the ordinary as you follow the story of the beautiful Willow Pattern design.

    From its origins in the romantic fable set in a traditional Chinese garden and coming to life in a modern day pottery factory, this wistful account of how the Willow Pattern came to be is retold with adventure, humour and intrigue. The show is packed with delightful songs and original choreography. There are parts galore for youth aged 8-17 years, with both challenging lead roles many substantial support roles and large ensemble work. Throw in a Chinese dragon dance, shadow puppets (a show-within-a-show-within-a-show!), a fiery kiln, a psychic tea -lady and a cast of thousands...well almost!

    For those who did not see the Channel 7 TV news bulletin last Wednesday evening, here is the YouTube video of the story. It features footage from Bradman Oval, the former Holly Street home of PL Travers, the two primary schools in Bowral, as well as the stage show in Melbourne. The journalist Sean Berry was researching a story for the show coming to Sydney and cam across the 2009 SMH article on the research that Melissa and I had done at the State Library and made contact with me as a result.



    There has been a great response to the story and SHYAC has had over 200 online registrations now for its 7 May event.
    We are still taking more, so if you are interested, please click on this link to register.

    If you are in a position to let others know about the 7 May "Welcome Home Mary Poppins Celebration" and Guinness World Record Attempts at Bradman Oval, please direct them to this web page
    .

    Various types of flyers in PDF and JG formats are available here and can be circulated
    to anyone you know.

    On May 7, SHYAC is trying to help our community break two world records. The first is for the biggest umbrella mosaic, while the second is for the world's biggest umbrella dance. To get you started on the umbrella dance, we have created an instructional video. It is embedded below so you can practice at home.
