PRISON SONGS – The Musical

31st July 2015

The musical documentary Prison Songs has now become a real musical!

Screened earlier this year on SBS, the award winning documentary centred on the lives of the inmates of Darwin's old Berrimah jail and featured the work of singer/songwriter Shellie Morris and composer and playwright Casey Bennetto (Keating! - The Musical). Shelley and Casey have created a multimedia concert experience which will premier at the Darwin Festival. The musical features Shellie Morris, Ernie Dingo and Kamahi Djordon King, accompanied by a live band, who perform the hip hop, blues, country, reggae and gospel songs from the documentary - tunes that tell of life on the inside, mishaps of the past and hopes for the future.

The Darwin Festival, running from 6 to 23 August is a vibrant arts and cultural event which celebrates the multicultural aspects of the unique Darwin lifestyle.
