A production, detailing the history of Dunsborough and the Capes area, will be staged next month.
Cape Reflections, produced by the award-winning Dunsborough Theatre Group, Wild Capers, and directed by Liza Black, is a light-hearted and poignant look at how the area started and the first hundred years of exploration and settlement.
The events of the past are observed by a young boy and his grandma through the device of ‘augmented reality’ glasses.
They observe scenes from antiquity , the French landing, the whalers, the developing timber industry and the struggles and joys of early settlers.
Resident Bernie Siddall, who wrote the play, said it took two years to develop the script.
“I used the local library, and historical groups, plus a friend who majored in history did some research for me,” he said.
“The show is educational and fun at the same time.
“There are lots of songs and well-known tunes, the audience will learn just how amazing our history is.”
Cape Reflections will be performed at the Old Dunsborough Hall at 6.30pm on May 5 and 12, with matinee performances on May 6 and 13.
