“Loretta Lynn paved the way for women like me in country music, to take centre stage” – Amber Joy Poulton star of Coal Miner’s Daughter

In floor length gowns adorned with tassels and rhinestones, with hair as close to country music heaven as possible, where country music started and still should be, in the theatre, just like the Grand Ole Opry and it’s coming to Ballarat!

Amber Joy Poulton (as Loretta Lynn), Lizzie Moore (as Patsy Cline) and The Preacher Denis Surmon (as Conway Twitty and Willie Nelson) along with kickin’ band The Holy Men, will sing the story of a champion of women’s rights, a mother of six and a lifetime of chart-topping hits to the country music lovers in Ballarat!

Coal Miner’s Daughter celebrates the incredible life of the late great Loretta Lynn, from her early days in the hills of Kentucky to her tempestuous marriage, tragic losses and enduring bonds with such luminaries as Patsy Cline, Conway Twitty, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
