Share event

Join the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra as they lead you through one boy's life-changing journey from the family farm to the unfamiliar city. Leaving behind the golden wheat fields, burning sunsets and dusty red creeks he must face the grey city streets where bright lights steal away the brilliance of the stars he loves.

Through the wonder of music, images, songs and storytelling, you will follow Joe as he comes to learn the importance of resilience in a world that is ever-changing.

Come and discover for yourselves what it is like... In This Place.

In This Place is based on Joe and the Stars and Through the Smoke - Adapted by Glyn Lehman and Phil Cummings from the books by Phil Cummings, Connah Brecon and Andrew McLean.
