Synopsis

The musical 'Bran Nue Dae' is one of the most appealing and heartwarming musicals to have emerged from Australia in recent years. Set in the West coast town of Broome in 1969 it's the tale of 16-year old Willie, a lackadaisical youth whose ambitions stretch barely beyond hanging out with his mates and daydreaming about comely young Rosie, who sings at his church. But Willie's sunny torpor is soon shattered when his mother sends him south to Perth to a Catholic boarding school. Hating the repressive environment, Willie plots his escape - and tumbles into a world of adventure as he tries to make the long journey home, aided and abetted by a hilarious cast of eccentric characters.
