SEVEN LITTLE AUSTRALIANS – JUNE 2019
Based on the novel by Ethel Turner
Adapted for stage by Joan Leslie and Di Mason
Directed by Di Mason, assisted by Sonja Zodrow
Seven Little Australians is the story of The Woolcot family – Captain John Woolcot from the NSW Regiment, his young second wife Esther and the adventures of his seven children in late 19th-century Sydney. The family lives in their large home by the Paramatta River. Captain Woolcot tries to run his household with regimental discipline but his rules and regulations are no match for his seven fun-loving children. The war of wills between the Captain and his troop of independent-minded sons and daughters is tempered by the gentle guidance of the children’s kindhearted stepmother, Esther. Vivacious and unruly, Judy is the ringleader and leads her six siblings into constant trouble. A terrible tragedy reveals the true strength of the family’s love.
