Coal Miner's Daughter

Two women singing and a man with a guitar, concert-style

Coal Miner's Daughter comes to Dandenong.

"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

Amber Joy Poulton as Loretta Lynn, Lizzie Moore as Patsy Cline, and 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 country music hits.

This inspiring theatre show was a smash hit at the 2023 Tamworth Country Music Festival and played to packed theatres in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and regional centres throughout 2022 and 2023.

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. This show celebrates Loretta Lynn's stellar career, until her final send-off to country music heaven in October 2022.

On their latest tour, Amber Joy Poulton and the cast of Coal Miner’s Daughter played to more than 10,000 people across Australia and, in an eerie twist of fate, were performing opening night at the very moment of Loretta’s sad passing in Tennessee last year.

Audiences will be captivated by the masterful storytelling, performances and catalogue of hits, including Don't Come Home A-Drinkin' With Lovin' on Your Mind, I Fall to Pieces, You Ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man, Crazy, Silver Threads and Golden Needles, Walkin' After Midnight, You're Lookin' at Country, One's on the Way, Stand by Your Man, After the Fire is Gone and more. This is a show not to be missed and with the passing of the great Loretta Lynn, there is no better time to celebrate her music.

Duration: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including interval
