This one-off charity performance will be held in aid of St Vincent de Paul Society at 2pm on Sunday the 21st of October 2012 at the Community Centre Mt Eliza Vic. 3930. An original musical by Elvira Spaziani and stage play by Nalini de Sielvie is based on real life. “Elise’s Journey” a light musical in three acts is set in 1950, and tells the story of Elise, a twelve year old girl who is sent alone to live with relatives in Australia in order to escape poverty in the Island of Selina, off the coast of Sicily. Every original song resonates with emotion, capturing the fear, sadness and bewilderment she faces on her lonely voyage across the sea. Elise later becomes a famous singer-songwriter and in spite of heartache and sorrow, eventually finds love and happiness in the lucky country.
