HotHouse Theatre presents They Saw A Thylacine

Tue May 3, 2016 | 8:00 pm – Sat May 7, 2016 | 9:30 pm
@ The Butter Factory Theatre, Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga

HotHouse Theatre presents ‘They saw a Thylacine’.

On an unseasonably cold September day in 1936, the world’s last known Tasmanian Tiger died in captivity at Hobart’s Beaumaris Zoo.

Out of the darkness, Sarah Hamilton and Justine Campbell conjure the ghost of one of our lost beauties – the thylacine. With the suspense and warmth of a campfire story, these feisty, funny women weave a lyrical tale of discovery and destruction.

Don’t miss this mesmerising theatre experience.

Nature films screening in Albury

Murray Local Land Services invites you to a free screening of two Australian natural history films, Battle in the Bush and Where to Eagles Dare. Battle in the Bush film maker, Daniel Hunter, will introduce the films and answer audience questions at the conclusion of the screening.

Battle in the Bush explores the role that predators play in biodiversity conservation and the changing face of conservation in Australia. Battle in the Bush is a 35-minute film that explores key questions arising from Dan’s research with the Centre for Ecosystem Science, University of NSW. For more information, click here.

Where Do Eagles Dare? is the story of one person’s mission to unlock the secrets of the largest predatory bird in Australia, the Wedge-tailed Eagle. The film follows Simon Cherriman, a young West Australian ornithologist, as he embarks on a quest to fulfil a boyhood dream, and for the first time ever, satellite track Wedge-tails in the remote WA. This film documents this unique research project, but is also a wildlife film, set largely in the central Western Australian desert region. To see the trailer, click here
