The Shorebird Quest - Sat May 20, FREE EVENT

FREE family friendly event returns - don't miss out!

Saturday 20 May 2023 from 5pm at Town Beach.

Theatre Kimberley is delighted to present the return of The Shorebird Quest, which celebrates the migratory shorebirds of Yawuru Nagulagun / Roebuck Bay. Watch as hundreds of illuminated puppets light up the mudflats under the Kimberley night sky, with storytelling, dance and original music performed by local musicians, and Broome school and community choirs.

Bring your family and friends, a picnic, something to sit on and enjoy as Yawuru Country knowledge brings to life the story of Curtis the Curlew and his perilous journey from Siberia to Broome.

The romantic-comedy musical theatre extravaganza would not be possible without many local community partnerships, including the Parks & Wildlife Services Kimberley's Yawuru Rangers and Nyamba Buru Yawuru's Country Managers, Goolarri Media, Broome schools, Environs Kimberley, Broome Bird Observatory and the Shire of Broome.

This project is supported by funding from the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund - an Australian Government initiative, the West Australian Government's State NRM Program, the Shire of Broome, Healthway, Act Belong Commit, the Tate Family Foundation and the Australian Government's Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.

This is an alcohol free event.
