Classic Australian literature
Have you read Ethel Turner's classic children's novel "Seven Little Australians"? If so you will definitely want to see this production. If not it's your duty as an Aussie to see it.

Adapted by Anne Scott-Pendlebury and directed by Leo Bradley, 'Seven Little Australians' tells the tale of the wild and mischievous Woolcot children in the early days of Australia.
It would be worth taking the time to read the book first, especially if you are taking children to see the show. You may recall that in the 1970's there was a miniseries featuring Leonard Teale as Captain Woolcot.
Villanova Players are a talented amateur theatre group who recently offered an amazing production of Summer of the Seventeenth Doll. They are currently based at FT Barrell Audiitorium in the ground of Yeronga High School in Oakwood St.
Ticket prices are very reasonable from $12 for students to $25 for adults. Supper is $2. Discounts for groups or online bookings.
I have been to many Villanova productions and have never been disappointed.
