Wool! A History of Australia's Wool Industry: The Musical

Behind every great sheep is a shearer. Behind every great shearer is a loving family great at admin. Behind every great family, there's a Governor intent on taking them down. The story of Australia's wool industry isn't as straightforward as it seems. But this isn't a story about the manufacture and production of wool and wool-based products. It's a story of sacrifice, hard work and love.

After a successful premiere run at Melbourne Fringe, comedian Kit Richards (Get Krackin', Triple R, Young, Rich and Bald) brings the feel-good musical back to Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Join her as she blends song and stand-up to explore the lives, legacy and love of the Macarthur family that brought the wool industry to fruition. It's a must-see show for history buffs and fans of musical theatre alike.

'Wool! A History of Australia’s Wool Industry: The Musical is fricken awesome.' Squirrel Comedy

'The songs were cleverly constructed, hilarious, and lovingly delivered.' Squirrel Comedy
