MOVIE: The Australian Dream (MA15+)
Sep
27
7:00 PM19:00

MOVIE: The Australian Dream (MA15+)

MOVIE:
The Australian Dream

Rated MA 15+. Themes of racism and strong coarse language. 105 mins.

~ The TACC Bar will be open from 6pm for a pre movie drink and snack. ~

SYNOPSIS: From shy country kid to two-time Brownlow medallist and Australian of the Year, Goodes is an inspiration to many. The footy field was where he thrived; the only place where the colour of his skin was irrelevant. Goodes’ world fell apart when he became the target of racial abuse during a game, which spiralled into public backlash against him. He spoke out about racism when Australia was not ready to hear the ugly truth, retiring quietly from AFL heartbroken.

Using the stunning athleticism of Goodes at the peak of his powers as well as the game itself as the film’s backdrop, THE AUSTRALIAN DREAM prompts questions about Australia’s relationship with racism and its ability to confront its own past. This compelling, provocative and cinematic film uses interviews from both sides of the debate to ask probing and fundamental questions about what it means to be Australian and what it takes for any individual to stand up for what they truly believe in. Featuring Goodes and all the key players from his story, including Grant, Michael O’Loughlin, Brett Goodes, Natalie Goodes, Tracey Holmes, Nova Peris, Nicky Winmar, Gilbert McAdam, Linda Burney, Paul Roos, John Longmire, Nathan Buckley, Eddie McGuire and Andrew Bolt, THE AUSTRALIAN DREAM is also a deeply personal and comprehensive exploration of Goodes’ own journey which saw him retreat from everyday life only to return determined to rise above the ugliness he had been forced to confront.

The Australian Dream is something people reach for and many people obtain, but there’s an emptiness at the heart of it because Australia has not resolved the questions of its history. If the Australian Dream is rooted in racism, what can be done to redefine it for the next generation?

TICKET PRICES:
Children under 18 years - $10,
Adults - $14,
Senior Concession Card Holders - $12.
FREE entry for Companion Card holders accompanying as a carer.
Tickets available at the door. Cash only.

PERFORMANCE: The Hall Committee

The Hall Committee Characters - Sept 2019.jpg

THE HALL COMMITTEE

A Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre original production
Written and Directed by Damian Callinan

The Rummage South Memorial Hall has seen better days. With white ants in the walls, possums in the roof and pigeons in the projection booth, the local wildlife are getting more use out of the hall than the locals. Due to the stringent restrictions enforced by Brenda, the intractable hall committee president, many residents have given up even trying to book the place.  However, when tree changer Penny manages to inveigle her way onto the committee, the community gets a shake-up. When she reveals that a hall grant is within their reach, the fractured committee ultimately join forces to outbid nearby rival, the Glenwarren Community Hall. Unbeknownst to the committee, the hall is also inhabited by the spirits of the hall’s past who weave their subtle magic to help the hall & the community heal.

Written, directed & co-starring by Damian Callinan, the writer of the hit movie The Merger, The Hall Committee will include a cast of local Wagga and Sydney actors to bring to life the folk of Rummage South past and present. Devised to be performed in the small country hall environment, audiences will have their own hall transformed in front of them as the cast usurp their residing committee to bring this interactive, immersive, hilarious play to life.

The Hall Committee is a nostalgic celebration of the role halls have played in the fabric of small town Australia but challenges us to look forward to the next phase of community life in the ever changing landscape of rural Australia.

Duration:

Approximately 1 hour & 50 minutes (including interval)

Ticket Prices:

One price $30.00
Groups 4+ $25.00ea
Subscriber $25.00
