Cooma Oral Histories

The Big hART theatre company is brewing up the ingredients for a new production involving the Cooma community, the band Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen, and a cast including Lex Marinos, Anne Grigg and Bruce Myles. Local high school students are recording oral histories in the community to provide stories and themes for the music and script being directed by Scott Rankin. On Sunday 29 June the community is invited to a special performance of the material developed so far. The completed show will be performed at the Canberra Theatre Centre in 2015.  For full story from the ABC click here.
