FOSTER will play host to the Seachange
Festival over two big weekends in March and
April, and while the program is still being
finalised it looks like the 2017 festival is go -
ing to be huge.
A number of long- established acts will be
returning to the hills of Foster for the Prom
Coast Seachange Festival, running from
March 24 to 25 and March 31 to April 2.
Events are planned for venues in Foster,
Fish Creek, Yanakie, Port Franklin and sur-
The Prom Coast Seachange Festival has
been held every second year since 2007.
It has become an iconic festival for the re-
gion, showcasing local and national musi-
cians and artists as well as the natural beau-
ty of the Prom Coast and its produce.
So much of the previous success of the
Prom Coast Seachange Festival stems from
the big-heartedness of volunteers.
“We truly appreciate the generosity that
comes from within the community through
the work of enthusiastic volunteers; the do -
nation of time, expertise and resources from
individuals, businesses, community groups
and sponsors is the driving force behind the
success of the festival, ” Organising Commit-
tee Chair, Deb Bray, said.
“The festival committee is very passionate
about providing a structure that is driven
from within the community, one that show-
cases established activities and emerging
skill-sets and, importantly, fosters quality
events that draw attention to, and celebrate,
this magnificent region. ”
A wide range of performers are currently
being locked-in to the festival, as well as a
range of venues from across the prom coast
area ensuring that there will be room for ev-
eryone to perform.
From food and wine, to sustainability and
the environment, musicals and art to tours,
sport and workshops, the festival will cater
The Fun, Food, Fair element of the festival
will take place on Saturday. March 25.
Many businesses are partnering with local
artists in the Double Take art installation
turning their shop windows into exhibition
space for exciting works of art, designed to
entertain and inform.
Over the coming weeks, the program will
be finalised and events gradually posted on
the festival website.
Ticketing to some events will open on Mon-
day, January 30.

IF theatrical productions are supposed
to surprise, delight, entertain and intrigue
audiences then the innovative presentation
by Fish Creek’s Nautilus Productions ticked
all the relevant boxes over the past two
And, being performed out in the elements,
at various venues around the town, it also
took audiences out of their comfort zone,
both physically and mentally.
Not only was the subject matter of ‘Solilo -
quy’ challenging to follow at times, being the
mental meanderings of eight different charac-
ters, rather than a coherent storyline, there
was a lot going on in the elements as well, at
Fish Creek last Friday night.
Not only was it blowing a gale for the show’s
final performance, with rain threatening but
the actors had to try and make themselves
heard over the shrieks of hundreds of Sul-
phur Crested Cockatoos.
With all that, it was mighty thought-provok-
ing stuff; with especially memorable perfor-
mances by Bruce Granger as Jim reflecting
on his life after being diagnosed with a termi-
nal illness, Harley McDonald-Eckersall as a
highly expressive bride -to -be and David Tat-
tersall as a hoody- clad, 15 year old kid loiter-
ing uselessly around town.
In the end the characters all meet at the fu-
neral of Jim’s wife to share some memories
of the past.
The play was written by local playwright

Fish Creek’s Nautilus Theatre Project has taken an outdoor play to the streets of the town in
the past few weeks, using venues like the old railway station for the Chris Dickens play, Soliloquy,
featuring artists including Harley McDonald-Eckersall as the ‘Bride in the Belltower’. m200417
