A poignant, stirring story. An inspiring production based on actual letters sent home from the front...

With memoirs of Kiwi Gallipoli veterans; quotes and minutes from the Council of War. The story follows three humble New Zealand families; from the excitement of enlistment, to the training in Egypt. We follow their journey to the Dardanelles, full of hope and anxious to do their bit for Britain, while their families at home wait for news.

From the landing at Anzac Cove, through the sweltering summer and the onset of a bitter winter, we follow the five mates under the stern eye of their beloved Colonel, William Malone.

The emotional finale depicts the evacuation from Gallipoli and the soldiers' anguish on withdrawing in front of the enemy and leaving their fallen comrades behind. 'Tread softly boys…we don't want our mates to hear us leaving.'

'Voices from the Front' is a unique production, of courage and endurance, mateship, good humour, survival and decency in the face of dreadful odds. The production features much loved songs from the era such as 'It's a Long Way to Tipperary', 'Just A Song At Twilight', 'If You Were the Only Girl in the World', 'Look for the Silver Lining'. and many more.
