The Martin & Lewis Show

On their first Australian National Tour, direct from Las Vegas, Tom Stevens as Dean Martin and accompanying him our very own Tony Lewis as Jerry Lewis.
From Atlantic Cities ‘500 Club’ to Las Vegas, The king of Comedy Jerry Lewis and the straight talking smooth singing Dean Martin turned the world on its head when they teamed up in 1946.
Tom Stevens and Tony Lewis recreate a time line of song and comedy from the greatest act of that time. From the duo's humble beginnings to their solo careers including Everybody Loves Somebody, Volare, Amore and many more, Tom Stevens will have you believing you are watching Dean Martin in 1955.
Tony Lewis has won many awards over the past 20 years but his greatest claim, is his tribute to Jerry Lewis. An acclaimed stand alone comedian, Tony Lewis is even better when he teams up with Tom Stevens. Tony’s 'Typewriter’ act is said to be the best tribute to Jerry Lewis' 'Typewriter' scene from 'Who’s Minding the Store'.
Tom Stevens has been a well renowned performer in Las Vegas for the past 25 years and his resemblance to Dean Martin is so uncanny that Dean Martin's own daughter Deana said of Tom's portrayal of her father at the Dean Martin Festival in his hometown of Steubenville, Ohio, 'I've never seen anyone look and sound more like my daddy.' Tom has since performed at the festival for 13 out of the 18 years since it's onset.
Both Stevens and Lewis have recently appeared in Atlantic City, Arizona, Florida and Jersey in the USA! Their recent tour included work on live television and radio in conjunction with performing in famous theatres and casino showrooms.

The Bogan Song Cycle

Dorian Mode is a multi-award winning musician and writer of laugh-out-loud books: A Cafe in Venice (Penguin) and Mozart Maulers (Penguin) have been bestsellers here and in Europe. These careers have remained separate until Dorian recently competed a doctorate (APA scholarship winner) on ‘Bogans!’ Armed with this unique insight, his talents combine in a hilarious new show ‘Bogan Song Cycle”: an exploration of all things ‘bogan’ told through surreal yarns and song.

With songs like ‘Moonlight In The Shire’, ‘Caravanistan’, ‘I’m Too Poor To Be Thin’ and ‘She Said Goodbye In Budgewoi’, you’ll laugh out loud and release the ‘inner Bogan’ within you!

His musical partner Andrew Wilkie plays the vibraphone and has performed and recorded in almost every style of music you could imagine at the highest level: classical with the Symphony orchestras of Queensland and Sydney and he's even performed at Royal Command performances in the Royal Albert Hall.

His musicality and diversity may be shown by listing some of the stars he has performed and toured with: Jose Feliciano, James Morrison, Jimmy Little, Michael Feinstien, Jane Rutter, Gangajang, Jimmy Little and many more.

His talent and experience led to the commission: composing the original and complete score for TAPDOGS, the most successful Australian theatrical export.

The 26-Storey Treehouse


Well, what are you waiting for? Come on up! THEY’RE BACK!
Yes, that’s right. Andy and Terry had such a ball with their crash-landing entry into the world of theatre with The 13-Storey Treehouse, they’re back for more. 13 storeys more, in fact. AND YOU’RE INVITED!
You know what 13 more storeys means? More INVENTIONS – like the 78 flavour ice-cream-dispensing robot and the brain bamboozling Maze of Doom (not to mention the self-inflating underpants) and more things to go WRONG – not least of which is the very real possibility that the entire show is a complete and utter disaster. Will Andy and Terry push their friend Jill to her absolute limits? And who is this shady Hector Houtkop, with a really bad pirate accent? And what about ALL THOSE PIRATES?
Adapted by award-winning playwright and author Richard Tulloch (The Book of Everything, Bananas in Pyjamas), The 26-Storey Treehouse is brought to you by the same cracker team that delivered the smash-hit stage version of The 13-Storey Treehouse. So what are you waiting for? You’ll laugh your head off!

Bell Shakespeare's

By William Shakespeare
Director Damien Ryan
With Josh McConville & Matilda Ridgway

Dark acts result in darker consequences. And there is little that’s darker and more complicated than the act of revenge. A family torn apart by murder, a son burdened with the truth and the task of avenging his father, and a country on the brink of war.
Anguish, passion and desperation collide in this tragic telling of Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark who is tormented by the impossibility of his dilemma, and who remains one of theatre’s most fascinating characters.
Damien Ryan, returning to Bell Shakespeare following the critically acclaimed Henry V in 2014, will deliver a new production of Hamlet, infused with the passion, contemplation and emotion that Shakespeare’s compelling poetry cries out for. Josh McConville (Griffin Theatre Company’s The Boys and Sydney Theatre Company’s Mojo) and Matilda Ridgway (Sport For Jove’s A Doll’s House) will delve into the depths of the complexity, violence, philosophical reflection, madness and maddening seduction of Hamlet.

My Latin Heart
- Jose Carbo with Slava & Leonard Grigoryan

Expect an evening of sumptuous song, stunning strings and tantalising tango, when internationally acclaimed baritone Jose Carbo, along with brilliant classical guitarists Slava and Leonard Grigoryan present My Latin Heart. Jose Carbo's album My Latin Heart shot to number one on the Limelight Classical Music Charts in 2013 and was nominated for Classical Record of the Year at the ARIA Awards. Now this lush collection of Latin American songs come to life on stage as Jose Carbo, with the Grigoryans, performs the songs given to him by his grandfather, Donato, back in Argentina, and soulful classics from the heart of Latin America, including Lara's Granada, Piazzolla's Ave Maria and Oblivion, as well as brilliant tangos such as Caminito, Mi Buenos Aires Querido and Adios.
Jose Carbo was born in Argentina of Spanish and Italian descent and his connection with the vibrant music and culture of Latin America runs deep. At an early age, he studied under the tutelage of Thais Taras, Arax Mansourian and Margaret Baker Genovesi in Rome, made his European debut in Italy at the Teatro dell' Opera di Roma and performs regularly with Opera Australia and the major orchestras, praised for his soulful interpretations and fierce technique. Speaking of the musical collaboration with the Grigoryans, Jose says, 'We spent so long together working on the songs before we went into the studio to record them ... The three of us have a great simpatico. Sitting down together in front of an audience to perform these songs that we all love is going to be extremely satisfying.'
My Latin Heart drew sell-out performances at its world premiere at the 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival, followed by a further sold out performance at the Melbourne Recital Hall.

50 Years On The Beatles

1964 Australian Tour & Shea Stadium Concert Relived

2014 marked the 50th Anniversary of the greatest music tour Australia has ever seen or is ever likely to see again. 2015 will mark 2 great Beatles milestones, 50 years on.

Following a sensational sell-out tour of Australia & New Zealand in 2014 the world's premier 'Beatles' band, the Fabulous Beatle Boys are returning and adding another historic 50th anniversary milestone to their highly acclaimed 2014 show. Audiences will see the original 64 tour concert as it was performed all those years ago. The identical song set, outfits, instruments and atmosphere faithfully recreated PLUS songs and vision from their biggest ever concert at Shea (Yankee) Stadium in New York, almost 50 years ago to the day.

Internationally recognised rock music guru and Beatles author Glenn A Baker describes the Fabulous Beatle Boys thus: 'The Fabulous Beatle Boys impress with their deft grasp of the Fab Four's entire span.' Plus, a microcosm of the great comments from those fortunate enough to have already seen this magnificent band:

'The most exhilarating show I have seen in years' - I.M. 99.3 FM

'Something' was nothing short of magnificent' - Life Music Media

'It was one of those special nights' - R.C. Auckland, NZ

'10/10 AWESOME EXCELLENCE' - Bruce JD on Tickemaster

Audiences will experience the Beatles of yesterday and how it might have been today had they still been together and using today's sophisticated technology and equipment. It will be a night to remember and for some, a memorable night relived.

Johnny Cash The Concert: 60 Years of Cash

On September 1, 1954 an unknown young man walked into the recording studio in the Memphis Recording Service building at 706 Union Ave, Memphis, Tennessee and walked out having cut a record that would define its own genre of music. That single, Hey Porter, was released on the Sun Records label on June 21, 1955 and a legend was born.

Few artists can claim that they are an entire genre of music unto themselves but if you try and define this man’s body of work, you are left with one conclusion. Johnny Cash is that artist!

At his passing in 2003 at the age of 71, he left behind an unparalleled body of work, having written & recorded over 800 songs and having recorded more than 1500 songs in total. He is the only artist in history to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll, Country Music and Songwriters Halls of Fame and to add further to this unprecedented honour he is also a member of the Rockabilly and Gospel Halls of Fame. 60 years after the release of his first single, having won countless awards, including fourteen Grammy awards and having become a worldwide household name, this unequalled artist has become an icon of 20th century popular culture and his legend has continued to grow as we have moved well and truly into the 21st century.

Since 2009, Award-Winning singer Daniel Thompson & Australian guitar master Stuie French have been wowing Australian audiences with Johnny Cash The Concert, keeping the spirit of the Man in Black alive with their authentic tribute to Johnny Cash and his music. In 2015 the boys return with their brand new show Cash 60 - 60 Years of Johnny Cash marking 60 years since the world first heard from the powerhouse that was Johnny Cash. Backed as always by their engine room, The Tennessee Studs, Cash 60 promises to be Johnny Cash The Concerts best show yet. Always keen to give their audiences something new and fresh, Cash 60 brings you the expected hits and highlights from Cash’s stellar career but as always the show is full of select favourites and forgotten gems from the extensive Cash catalogue.

Nobody brings to life the sprit and the music of The Man in Black quite like Johnny Cash The Concert.

On the road from August 2015, Cash 60 is a show not to be missed.

Christine Anu 20th Anniversary Tour
2015 will see Christine Anu celebrating the 20thAnniversary of her ARIA Award winning album, Stylin’ Up with a National tour. In a 2 hour show, Christine will perform the songs that drew in fans from around the globe and cemented her place as an iconic Australian performer. Audiences will be entertained with Christine’s hit songs Island Home, Party, Monkey and the Turtle, and Wanem Time as well as the full repertoire of songs from the album that started it all! Christine will also surprise audiences with other favourite tunes from her illustrious and successful career as one of Australia’s most well-known, loved and respected Indigenous artists. It is no surprise that Stylin Up, released by Mushroom Music in 1995, set Australian music lovers alive. At the time it was one of the most influential albums ever released by an Indigenous artist, featuring a unique blend of Christine’s culturally diverse musical styles with David Bridie’s lush strings and cinematic atmospheres. Stylin’ Up was so successful that Christine played all over Australia, with her performance at the Metro in Sydney being recorded for a live CD. The ABC also recorded the show to be part of a documentary on Christine’s career and heritage (Salt Water Soul); this documentary aired nationally on ABC TV. Not only did Stylin’ Up cement Christine’s place as a major player in the Australian Music Industry, but it paved the way for many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander contemporaries. Christine is enthralled about the opportunity to revisit Stylin’ Up in a national tour and to reconnect with the fans who have made it all happen.

Purchase Tickets for both Russian Ballet performances



The Russian National Ballet's Swan Lake

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.

\With the instantly recognizable music of Tchaikovsky,virtually a signature of classical ballet, and the wonderfully dark story of good set against evil, Swan Lake is one of the most famous and loved of all works in the repertory.

The glamour of the palace ballroom is evocative of the Russian Imperial world in which the ballet was created, while the haunting moonlit lakeside is perfect for the tragic conflict of the human and spirit worlds. The Central role of Odette / Odile is one of the most testing for any ballerina, especially in portraying both the vulnerability of Odette, the while swan, and the predatory duplicity of Odile, the black swan.

Today it remains the cornerstone of The Russian National Ballet Theatre's repertory.

The current staging is directed by Evgeny Amosov. With it's huge cast, fairytale settings and glorious Tchaikovsky score, The Sleeping Beauty remains the very essence of classical grandeur.

Happy Days Records & Scott 'Buddy' Cameron present
Buddy Holly in Concert - 60 Years of Buddy Holly

No-Buddy does it better than Scott ‘Buddy’ Cameron

Bob Montgomery (long-time friend of Buddy Holly & Writer of the hit song Heartbeat)

Buddy Holly was an innovator.  He pioneered and popularized Rock 'N' Roll as we know it today.  Happy Days Records presents Buddy: In Concert, 60 Years of Buddy Holly – a celebration of Rock N Roll history starring Scott “Buddy” Cameron.
Buddy Holly’s career began in 1956 and spanned only a few short years, but he continues to make a lasting impact on popular music, influencing acts including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and Elton John, among others. Inducted in to the hall of fame in 1986, (Co-incidentally the same year Scott was born) the Texan was ranked by Rolling Stone Magazine at number thirteen on its '100 Greatest Artists' list having written some of histories greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll songs.

Scott “Buddy” Cameron is no stranger to portraying Holly, having done so for over a decade to many a rapturous crowd.  Scott is one of the most recognised Buddy Holly performers in the world, receiving rave reviews for his portrayal of the 50’s legend in the international smash hit musical Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story in productions staged from 2005 through to 2009 and, to this day, continues to don the trademark horn-rimmed glasses, the ever so engaging and charismatic figure and a lilting vocal hiccup in many other concert productions. He is recognised by Members of Holly’s own family as being the closest thing today to the legend of Holly.

Buddy: In Concert, 60 Years of Buddy Holly will see Cameron perform some of Rock N Roll’s greatest songs from across the 50’s and 60’s from artists including Elvis Presley, Bill Haley, among others. Following a short intermission, Scott will get his rave on performing the very best of Buddy Holly’s catalogue of hits.  Expect to hear the hits 'Peggy Sue', 'That’ll Be The Day', 'Oh Boy', 'Maybe Baby' and many more.

Adult $65, Concession / Groups 8+ $59.
