News about the Crossing Play

Well, the Bicentenary of the Crossings of the Blue Mountains was officially launched on Saturday 23rd February at Echo Point, Katoomba, in a downpour that reminded all of us what visitors to the Mountains have often had to endure. But this couldn't dampen the spirits of all of us there.

I was proud to stand between Auntie Mary Cooper-Knight of the Gundungurra mob, and Her Excellency Governor Marie Bashir, patron of the Bicentenary Commemorations. Congratulations to Blue Mountains Mayor Daniel Myles, BMLOT Head Randall Walker and everyone who worked so hard to make this event the warm and community-oriented success it was!

Our wonderful hard-working actors showcased a snippet from The Crossing Play with Mrs Elizabeth Hawkins and her family travelling to Bathurst on bullock drays in 1822 - with all eight of her children ranging from twelve and a half year old Tom down to baby Edward and her seventy year old mother Mrs Lilly. Meet them at the show! Details of venues trhough the Blue Mountains, Lithgow, Bathurst and Sydney at venues to be advised very soon.
