The Red Cross Gala
On Tour Around South Australia
Thanks to Country Arts SA and the Beyond the Stage Project, we can bring the Red Cross Gala to life in regional South Australia.
Findings from the Australia Council have found that people living in regional Australia increasingly recognise the positive impacts of the arts on their daily lives and communities. The vast majority of regional Australians have positive attitudes about the value of the arts. They believe the arts reflect and contribute to society, to cultural identity, and to Australia’s international reputation.
The arts help give life meaning and studies have shown regional Australians are proud of our artists. This is why we are so glad to be able to bring Whyalla, Mt Gambier and Noarlunga a fabulous production featuring the glorious music of Luke Dollman and his ‘Cheer Up’ orchestra a joyful evening of parlour songs, anthems and musical favourites.
Hear Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance, Iolanthe and The Mikado, orchestral excerpts from The Marriage of Figaro and popular hits; On the Road to Mandalay, Danny Boy, Keep the Home Fires Burning and many other songs from the era.
Information about regional Impacts, attitudes and giving to the arts found from the Australia Council 2017, Connecting Australians: Results of the National Arts Participation Survey unless otherwise stated.
