Welcome to Powderkeg

Our children’s pantomime for winter 2022 is the classic Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White.
Come and join us as children and their parents perform this literary classic about Wilbur the pig and his friend, the young girl Fern. Fern pleads with her father to save Wilbur from the dinner table, but it is Wilbur’s new friend Charlotte, a charming spider, who comes to his rescue. With the words she weaves into her web, can Charlotte save Wilbur and convince the adults that he is indeed some pig?

Born in Melbourne’s west, the Powderkeg Players date back to the 70s and 80s where they staged several plays a year to a packed audience. We began life as the Dear Park Drama Group after a group of parents and teachers put on a Christmas production at Deer Park Primary school in 1971.  The play was so well received that the group negotiated a lease with the Commonwealth Department of Supply on the Albion Explosive Factory on Station Road. With a small grant from the Sunshine City Council, the group turned the empty hall into the Powderkeg Playhouse and their home.

Powderkeg Players acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
