An original work by David Crewe and Paul Coppens
with massed choir, music, action and drama
to capture and commemorate the ANZAC experience of World War I, especially the 1915 events on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey.
It was originally created as 'ANZAC DAWN' for the main arena event of the
Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show 2015 Nambour Show Grounds - June 12,13,14 and
supported by the Queensland State Anzac Centenary Grants Programme and the Sunshine Coast Regional Council.
Further plans for this work will be announced as soon as the software (under development) has become useful enough to run the events.
Performances are planned in some of the capital cities in Australia and New Zealand in 2022. These will involve
major charities and crowdfunding using its own website.

and narrated by Stephanie Cole with illustrations from the book.
