Wollongong’s internationally acclaimed String Family is heading home this Friday and will be performing a home coming concert on Saturday.
Former String Angel Sarah Moir said after performing all around Australia and overseas with her husband Joel and children in recent years they are returning this week with some big news.
“Paronella Park in Fare North Queensland has asked us to create a show to be performed every night in the castle from May to November next year,” Mrs Moir said.
“So that is where we will be living for at least six months next year. Performing every night. It’s a dream come true for us. We still can’t believe it.”
The heritage listed tourist attraction was an entertainment venue until the late 1970’s when a fire swept through the castle, leaving only the walls and the turret as a reminder of what had been.
Mrs Moir is creating a theatrical show for the family to perform during the nightly light up of the castle.
She said the new news means The String Family has plenty to celebrate in Wollongong this weekend.
“We have a concert which we hope will be a big one with the Arcadian Lamplighters at the Salvation Army Citadel on the 29th of September,” Mrs Moir said.
“We are sharing the bill and doing one piece together also”.
