In the wake of all Anzac Day events being cancelled due to COVID-19 we are still being given the opportunity to celebrate our national heroes. 3 Weeks In Spring the musical by Ian Gerrard and Russell Tredinnick will now be available on Youtube to watch for free on April 25 and 26. To help commemorate Anzac Day, Endymion Productions believe in highlighting Australian stories and are giving “every Australian,” the chance to see this critically acclaimed production. 
3 Weeks In Spring was presented by the State Theatre for a limited-season run in August last year. Narrated by the trailblazing journalist, C.E.W. Bean, the show focuses on the iconic and inspiring story of Simpson and his Donkey. Bean’s granddaughter, Anne Carroll, felt “all involved had embraced the sensitivity and understood the responsibility of telling this story.” The show received critical acclaim and was called “extraordinarily good” by AnzacLive. It has been praised for its “great music,” by the Sydney Morning Herald and also connected with audiences receiving standing ovations during its limited run. 

Starring Lincoln Elliott, Matthew Herne, Lachlan James O’Brien, Courtney Powel. 3 Weeks In Spring has been hailed as “an amazing portrayal of an important event in our nation’s history. Seeing this is something every Australian should add to their bucket list.”
