Heading North is the story of two families that share a passion for life, love and the sea.

Set amongst the palm trees, Graeme Connors’ most iconic hits transform you to the tropical north where friendships are formed, and memories are created.

Created by Joel Bow with an original script by S. K. Munt and music and lyrics by Graeme Connors, Heading North will make its world premiere in 2021 at the Mackay Festival of Arts with a one-hour taster performance.

Join us on opening night for a VIP pre-show cocktail function, including gourmet canapes and drink on arrival, followed by the premiere of the workshop performance.
