Star still shining bright 60 years on

Long time Seachange resident Billie Fowler is reliving her South Pacific experience 60 years later. After a chance meeting on preview night at QPAC in Brisbane, Billie, who played leading lady Nellie Forbush in the 1954 production, has been rubbing shoulders with the current cast.

“It has been such a great experience. I have spent some time with Lisa McCune and the rest of the cast. They invited me to the opening night and have really made me feel special. That first night in Brisbane was the most exciting night of my life”, said Ms Fowler.

Along with eighty four Seachange residents, Billie will be back in Brisbane on the 22nd January to experience it all again. She will then play host to the cast and crew when they visit Seachange later in the month.
