CSG-free musical triumph

CSG - The Musical, which played to packed houses in Lismore last week, appears to have been a resounding success.

Spokesperson John McPherson said the show, intended to raise money to support the group CSG Free Lismore in its fight against coal seam gas mining in the area, pulled in 1400 people over three nights.

A raffle raised a further $800.

McPherson declined to comment on whether the show had reached its target of raising $20,000 as a fighting fund. He did remark that the show had been "financially successful".

He said that many of the costs for the show were paid for by the passionate individuals who made up the cast and production team.

Organisers have been approached to take the musical to Bangalow, Murwillumbah and Grafton.
