    The Waltzing Matilda musical comes to Celtic at Metropolitan From the producers of Barry Versus Kelly comes 'The Man They Call The Banjo'.

    Set during the height of the Western Queensland Shearers strike of 1894, The Man They Call The Banjo tells of the writing of Waltzing Matilda, and the love triangle that poet, Banjo Paterson found himself trapped in while on a visit to Dagworth Station. Daughters of pastoralist families, Sarah Riley and Christina Macpherson spar for the affections of Australia’s emerging national poet, and as the engagement of Banjo and Sarah Riley dissolves, Christina Macpherson provides the melody for the song that becomes Waltzing Matilda in a love affair thinly disguised as a collaboration.

    Based on the research of Dennis O’Keeffe and his 2013 publication “Waltzing Matilda – The Secret Story of Australia’s favourite Song, The Man They Call The Banjo is written by Felix Meagher and Dennis O’Keeffe and features Anthony Penhall (Banjo), Bronwen Coleman (ChristIna), Cora Browne (Sarah), Colin Driscoll (The Swagman) and musicians, Louey Hesterman and Pat Evans.
