Bells of Peace told how WW1 impacted on the electorates of Casey and Latrobe and Yarra Ranges through musical theatre, exhibitions by schools, RSLs and Historical Societies. Foyer exhibitions and pre-performance entertainment at each venue was free.
The Bells of Peace performance was over 1½ hours in length so we can only present a selection of still shots and video excerpts from the performance here but if nothing else they give a sense of the scale of the production. click on any of the images to see the larger image:
