Yea Town Hall – 22 February 2019
SUN RISING is Australia’s premier Rock n Roll show that pays homage to the amazing artists that launched their careers at the famous Sun Record Company!
It’s one thing to pay tribute, it’s another to live and breathe the music. The passion shared by the boys in Sun Rising, is nothing short of fanatical. It has less to do with the fact that the boys have visited Sun & Memphis a combined 12 times and more to do with the goose bumps that rise when they talk about Sam, Sun, the artists and birthplace of Rock n Roll. The name “Sun Records”… tantamount to greatness… the birthplace of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
For most the mention of Sun brings to mind the place where Elvis cut his teeth and his first record. For others it may be the altar at which we kneel, thinking of Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, or its founder Sam Phillips, pacing the vinyl floor searching for the next hit record. But beyond the big names, ‘Sun Rising’ digs to uncover more music and stories that add to the Sun legacy.
‘Sun rising’ plays absolute tribute to the golden era of Rock ‘n’ Roll and presents a passionate and musically spectacular rendition of the Sun hit records we know and love, whilst also showcasing other hits from artists who Sam Phillips produced during this wonderfully fertile time in music history.
There are still a limited number of season passes available from the Yea Bendigo Bank.
Season pass – access to all 4 shows for $100.
Single show tickets $30.

Beaufort Manor – 13 July 2019
A brutal murder is committed in a small town in France. The dismembered corpse is dropped from a railway viaduct onto passing trains below… All except the head.
Based upon an actual event, L’amante anglaise is a beautifully poignant and emotionally powerful portrait of lost passion. This modern classic psychological thriller from celebrated French author, Marguerite Duras, takes you right inside the heart and mind of the perpetrator and is a fascinating and compelling true crime story.
Pierre (Rob Meldrum) and Claire Lannes (Jillian Murray -2015 Green Room winner, Best Female Performer, Independent Theatre) are ordinary human beings leading everyday lives until catastrophe occurs. Over the course of the drama, they effortlessly reveal the beauty and brutality of their inner selves, and create a painstaking portrait of lost passion. Performed exquisitely and directed by Laurence Strangio, L’Amante Anglaise is a rare and unmissable work of theatre.
Stardust & The Mission
Yea Town Hall – 13 September 2019
STARDUST: For 25 years, a locked wooden dresser sat in the family garage of ABC/BBC presenter, Joel Carnegie. The dresser was a once prized possession of his grandfather, Col Brain. Col was one of Victoria’s most well-regarded musicians, but his dresser hadn’t been opened since he died. So what was inside? Told through the eyes of his grandson, herein lies the discovery of a time capsule of Australian musical life, in a heart-warming (multi-award winning) quest to uncover what Col wanted us to know about his life by the things he left behind.
THE MISSION: Alan McDonald, a “Fighting Gunditjmara” man from South-West Victoria, was one of the State’s first Indigenous soldiers to enlist for war. Alan fought at some of WWI’s most famous campaigns, including Gallipoli and Beersheba – only to be denied a soldier’s settlement on his return home, and forced from his land at the Lake Condah Mission. So what drives someone to fight for a country that doesn’t recognise them? How do you keep fighting in an unjust world and why? The Mission explores Alan’s story, as investigated by his descendant and fellow Gunditjmara man, Tom Molyneux, in collaboration with Gunditjmara community members.
