audrey of the outback by christine harris @ king street theatre newtown

Audrey, a 1930’s outback girl with the world’s biggest backyard.

The Eaton Gorge Theatre Company and EMU Productions are proud to present this timeless Australian tale of growing up. The story is based on the adventures of a 9 year old girl Audrey Barlow who lives in the outback in 1930’s Australia. There’s a lot of change occurring in the outside world as Audrey wonders about the really important things in life such as …whether being a swaggie is lonelier than being a girl and how many eggs can a chicken hold in their stomach at one time?

This is a remount of the Eaton Gorge Theatre Company’s play based on the award winning children’s book by Christine Harris. Audrey Of The Outback was presented at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre to sell out crowds and was developed with support from Merrigong Theatre Company and Upper River Arts Exchange Artist Residency, dramaturgy with Richard Tulloch, design by Imogen Ross and for this season directed by Juliet Scrine.

This season features 15 year old Darcy Scrine playing Audrey; Audrey’s brother Price is being played by 16 year old Edward Atkinson; Dad, Toothless & Mr Akbar are all played by Ben Verdon; and Mum by Susan Kennedy. This charming story will be enjoyed by the whole family from grandparents to little ones.
