The Greatest Show On Earth

Donna Abela has been working with a creative team spread across three states to develop the script for The Greatest Show On Earth, a musical adventure that pitches big smoke developers against a community determined to protect their heritage and tradition. It’s a rough and tumble story inspired by the generations of circuses and carnivals that travelled through outback Australia.
The show features the Longreach Town Brass Band, The Thistle Pipe Band, the Call of Fame Quartet and a local Choir, and a contingent of professional actors and musicians. It will play in the showground of Longreach in central Queensland on the 19th, 20th and 21st of July.
Co-written with director Patrick Nolan, the show was commissioned by the Queensland Music Festival.
