LOTS Theatre Incorporated presents site-specific aviation-themed entertainment as part of the Seniors Festival on October 17 and 18 at 12.30pm at the Australian National Aviation Museum at Moorabbin Airport.
LOTS for Seniors features short plays to introduce patrons to some of Australia’s legendary aviation heroes, such as Sir Lawrence Wackett of CAC fame, and Robin Miller (The Sugar Bird Lady), and tells of how the Royal Flying Doctor Service came into being.
And there is mystery too … whatever did happen to a young pilot who flew out of Moorabbin Airport and was never seen again?
Producer Jim Williams and Artistic Director
Maggie Morrison recognise that seniors enjoy involvement with shows.
Not only can the audience sing along to original fun songs about aviation, but they can also help out with industrial percussion while hearing about the role of Fisherman’s Bend in defending Australia during World War II.
Refreshments will be offered at interval, and dedicated museum restoration volunteers will be on hand to talk to the audience.
Time will also be available for a quick look at the many Australian aviation displays in the museum.
Performance Dates: Tuesday, October 17 and Wednesday, October 18 at 12.30pm
Venue: Australian National Aviation Museum, Second Avenue, Moorabbin Airport.
Bookings are essential as seating is limited.
More information and ticket bookings ($12 or $10 groups of 6+): 8510 1903, 9580 2387 or 9584 5127.
