QMF musical will boom out from marina foreshore

THE stage is too big for a curtain, but that won't stop the opening night of Gladstone's epic musical Boomtown.

The all-singing, all-dancing, free-to-see spectacular kicks off Thursday at the Gladstone Marina foreshore.

The biggest production ever staged for the Queensland Music Festival, thousands are expected to flock to the event, on at 6.30 tonight until Sunday.

The cast includes about 300 locals, who play everything from colonels to zombies, who help tell a tongue-in-cheek history of our region's industrial history.

With family, friends and Gladstone devotees set to flock to see the spectacle, organisers recommend arriving early to get a car park, and a good spot in front of the giant foreshore stage.
