With special permission from the Nick Enright estate, Home Grown is proud to present a special one night only gala evening, as part of the Home Grown Songbook Series, dedicated to the songs and musicals of the late Nick Enright, and his collaborations with composers Terence Clarke, David King, Max Lambert, Alan John and Glenn Henrich.
Largely, known for his many plays (including Blackrock, Daylight Saving), Enright also crafted 11 original musicals with his 5 writing partners, wrote the book for smash hit Australian musical, the Boy from Oz and even wrote an opera. A world renowned dramatist, writer and director, the influence of Nick Enright extends beyond his work alone. Join us as we celebrate the leading pioneer of Australian Musical Theatre.
The Home Grown Songbook Series is an opportunity for us to shine the spotlight on our countries more prolific writers, on an intimate, detailed level. The Inaugural Songbook Series event was held in February this year and focussed on the work of Craig Christie, who's musical Eurobeat is the most widely licensed piece of Australian Musical Theatre globally. We hope that the songbook series will stand as a celebration of the cream of the crop of Original Australian Musical Theatre.
