On “Radio Theatre” throughout January 2023, Radio Mansfield presents “A Tale of Two Emus” by Mansfield writer Denise Kramarczuk.

It’s holiday fun on the farm as two young boys come to stay with their grandparents at Mansfield … and discover two emus on the property.

There are lots of surprises in store as the boys make new discoveries on the farm … and we also hear what the emus have to say,  as well as some of their other animal friends.

Two new voices make their “Radio Theatre” debut in this delightful tale - young Mansfield siblings Amity and Digby Barber as the boys - and we welcome them and their vocal talents to our ever-growing acting team!

Will the boys help save the day when the steady rain and floods threaten the emu’s nest? 

Find out in our special family-friendly New Year’s radio play “A Tale of Two Emus”,  broadcast every Sunday afternoon throughout January on “Radio Theatre” - right after the three o’clock news

On Radio Theatre throughout November 2022, Radio Mansfield presents Part 2 of “Nelly Kelly’s Moonshine” by Longwood writer Julie van Kerkwijk.

Nelly Kelly and her performing girls ‘The Passionfruits’ arrive by train in Queenstown 

… at the same as the crooked Mayor and the dodgy Barber are trying to get their greedy hands 

on the gold-mining claim of the three hard-working miners we met in Part One.

And Cranky Jimmy’s arranged for a big night of fun and games at the ‘Lucky Dog’ saloon … with a bit of moonshine and two-up … along with the showgirls!

Set on the Victorian goldfields in the 1870s, this radio play is full of intrigue, drama, colourful characters ... and a healthy serving of good old-fashioned Aussie humour!

So tune in to hear the second installment of our three-part original adventure “Nelly Kelly’s Moonshine” broadcast every Sunday afternoon throughout November on “Radio Theatre” - right after the three o’clock news - on Radio Mansfield, 99.7FM.

Set on the goldfields of North-East Victoria in the 1870s, three down on their luck gold-miners finally make a discovery that could change their lives … but someone else is watching and may just get in first with a claim on their find, and their eureka moment will be for nothing.

Full of intrigue, drama, fascinating colonial characters and a healthy serving of good old-fashioned Aussie humour and mateship, this is a very special radio play experience!

So tune in to hear the first instalment of our two-part original adventure “Nelly Kelly’s Moonshine”, broadcast every Sunday afternoon throughout October 2022 on Sunday afternoons right after the three o’clock news - on Radio Mansfield, 99.7FM … your voice in the High Country.

So Ready … Aim … Fire ... and Bullseye! It’s the Robin Hood story like you’ve never heard it before!
