To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli a free theatre production titled ‘Gallipoli –A Manual of Trench Warfare’ will be on at the Evan Theatre from Monday, April 20 to Friday, April 24.
The live stage show is set in a sandbagged trench at Gallipoli and focuses on the legend of heroism during the Great War.
The audience will experience this significant event in Australia’s history through the eyes of main character Barry Moon, a country boy who battles against the enemy, himself and the establishment.
The Gallipoli Campaign solidified Australia’s nationhood and gave rise to the concept of the ANZAC spirit, which draws focus to the shared qualities of Australian and New Zealand soldiers including characteristics such as mateship and courage.
This powerful live production from Jally Entertainment offers Panthers club members and visitors the chance to commemorate this important event in Australia’s history through the story of Barry Moon.
