songs and story in fire-affected communities

The Choir of Hard Knocks inspired Victorians and gave an insight into the lives of those for whom life has been tough. Many more Victorians did it tough through the fire districts over Summer 2009. In this new project, Melbourne Playback Theatre Company joins with community choirs in the fire-affected regions for a series of nights of music and story.

The project plans to support local choirs to sing the songs of community, and to hear fragments of life now in the recovery.

And to create a great night of celebration and sharing.

If you’ve ever sat in a Melbourne Playback show and felt moved by another’s story, or if you’ve experienced the magic of seeing your story on stage, please consider donating to make this project possible.

Story by story we rebuild our lives. And the lives of others.
