IN JUST a matter of days Leeton shire residents will be rubbing shoulders with Australian television royalty.
Tickets are still available for the two McLeod’s Daughters reunion shows to be held at the Roxy Theatre on July 21, but those who haven't yet purchased one should get in quick smart.
Huge audiences are expected when Myles Pollard (Nick Ryan), Bridie Carter (Tess McLeod), Lisa Chappell (Clare McLeod), Aaron Jeffery (Alex Ryan) and Zoe Naylor (Regan McLeod) reunite on stage at the Roxy.
Tickets have been purchased from as far away as Queensland for the event.
Clay Pasquetti from the Roxy Theatre said interest in the reunion had come from far and wide.
"The afternoon show is almost full, but there are still tickets available to the evening session,” he said.
“This is such a great opportunity for Leeton. We’ve been so lucky to have the cast recognise our area as being one they want to come to and we’re excited to have them here in the Roxy.”
The television drama ended after eight seasons and 224 episodes, finishing up in 2009, but its following has never truly died out.
Fans have long called for McLeods’s Daughters to be given a reboot, but many are thrilled four of the original cast members will be getting together in Leeton.
Those attending either of the two sessions will be treated to the former cast members chatting about their time on the show, answering questions and a meet and greet will follow.
Ms Carter recently spoke with The Irrigator about coming to Leeton.
“I live on a farm myself, so coming to places like Leeton and meeting the people, that is just something I absolutely love doing,” she said.
Mr Pasquetti was certain the event would continue to help put Leeton on the map.
“That’s the idea … we’ve got a lot of visitors coming to town,” he said.
“It would be great if they go home and tell their friends and family about Leeton.” Tickets for the event are $88 and can be purchased online.
Only a limited amount of tickets will be available at the door. The afternoon session will be held from 1pm to 5pm, followed by the second from 6pm to 10pm.
