DA Tile Web“Over my dead body he’s selling us up for scrap!”

During the wartime winter of 1942, in the remote country town of Warrabadanga the female workers at the Dinkum Biscuit Factory are battling to keep the biscuits baking.

For these ordinary Aussie women in a town devoid of men, life is challenging. Not only are they fighting to save the factory machinery from being sold for scrap, they’re running a ‘Mum’s Army’ Civil Defence Unit, putting on a show for the ‘War Effort’ – and coping with the sudden arrival of two thousand American airmen who’ve been stationed just outside town.

This poignant, yet very funny musical comedy about a group of women striving for personal and professional freedom against the backdrop of a changing world serves up a slice of Australian social history with laughter, tears, songs, tap dancing – and Rita, the regimental goat!  + TRAILER + PICS + PRESS
