Once a
Jolly Swagman

A delightful family musical based on “Waltzing Matilda”.

Set to original music by Tasmanian composer Don Kay, this wonderful interpretation of Banjo Paterson’s lyrics bring to life such characters as the Coolibah Tree, a Sheep that has always dreamed of being a swaggie, the Trooper and his Wife, Angus McTavish an old Gold Prospector and of course the cheeky and adorable Swaggie, as well as a host of other characters drawn from the folklore of Australia’s past.
