Dreamland is a celebration of the dance of life, in all its mystery.


A NORPA production

Wed 15 – Sat 25 May 2019


$20-49 + booking fee

Bangalow A&I Hall


Dreamland is a dreamscape of life in regional Australia. A newbie wanting to hire the hall interrupts the ubiquitous late night committee meeting. A crash course in local history involves a number of axes and an unexpected lesson in the virtues of partner dancing!

Transporting us through different waves of settlement, from the Big Scrub, to hippies and tree-changers, Dreamlandexplores how communities adapt to change and renew themselves.

From the makers of Railway Wonderland and WildskinDreamland is for all of us who have come here to invent a new life; it’s a celebration of place, told through song, dance and humour.

After a sell-out season at Eureka Hall in 2016, we are excited to be bringing Dreamland to the Bangalow A&I Hall in May 2019!
