Get ready to watch Michaela Burger's smash hit cabaret on your favourite screen as A Migrant's Son comes to the CST Screening Room - our online home for great independent theatre.
Igniting memories of a story that millions can relate to, cabaret star Michaela Burger pays tribute to her Greek migrant family and her hard-working, fun-loving larrikin father Luke, who defied all odds. From early morning deliveries for the family bakery at age seven, down opal mines in Coober Pedy at age sixteen and opening a chain of discount supermarkets in Adelaide, Luke’s road was not one for the faint-hearted.
The original production premiered with a sell-out Adelaide Cabaret Festival season, was nominated for a Helpmann Academy Award, and won the inaugural Frank Ford Award at the 2019 Adelaide Fringe.This critically-acclaimed show was due to travel to theatres around the country in 2020. Covid and closed borders may have grounded Michaela and the team, but they were still inspired to share this very special story with you.
