UPDATE: Given the situation around COVID-19, Country Arts SA has made the difficult decision to cancel A Migrant’s Son in Lameroo, Bordertown, Burra, Ceduna and Coober Pedy. 

In the interest of public safety, we consider this the most responsible course of action for patrons, artists and our community. We apologise  for any inconvenience this may cause.

Igniting memories of a story that millions of Australians can relate to, Michaela Burger pays tribute to her Greek migrant family and hard-working, fun loving larrikin father Luke who defied all odds and rose above his circumstances. From early morning deliveries for the family bakery at age seven, down opal mines in Coober Pedy at age 16 and opening a chain of discount supermarkets in Adelaide, Luke’s road was not one for the faint-hearted.

Featuring original songs and live band, including piano and bouzouki, Michaela tells her family story with poignancy and comical aplomb. Described by Australia’s leading lady of cabaret Kate Ceberano as an “asset to the cabaret community” come join Michaela for an evening of song and laughter, memories and the love of family.

Part of the performance includes a volunteer community choir! If you want to get involved with your local performance contact [email protected] for more information. Check out what one of the choir members thought of the experience in 2019.
