Burdekin Christian College presents

SEUSSICAL JR.

Friday 2 August - 6:30pm

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

A Farewell to Doris

featured

Melinda Schneider returns to the stage in 2024 to pay tribute to the legendary Doris Day.

The world lost one of its biggest stars with the passing of Doris Day. A legend of stage, screen and song, Doris died aged 97, leaving behind an incredible body of work, including iconic movies and unforgettable songs.

Doris Day, “the girl next door”, had millions of fans around the world, none bigger than chart-topping Australian singer songwriter Melinda Schneider, who has recorded two albums of Doris’ songs, co-written and starred in a theatre show based on Doris’ life, and done sell-out tours celebrating Doris’ work.

Melinda Schneider’s, A Farewell To Doris, is a heartfelt tribute to Doris Day. This nostalgic concert celebration will include timeless hits as well as a number of Doris’ big band standards.

Melinda’s love affair with Doris Day started when she saw Calamity Jane when she was just eight. “I thought she was the best of everything a woman can be, and when I grew up I wanted to be just like her,” Melinda says. “Whenever I revisit some of her old movies, I’m transported back to that place, a place of happiness and pure joy.”  

In 2010, Melinda released the acclaimed tribute album Melinda Does Doris – A Tribute To Doris Day, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Jazz and Blues chart, remaining there for 9 weeks.

The following year, Melinda starred in her own hugely successful original theatre show, DORIS, Doris Day – So Much More Than The Girl Next Door, which she wrote with David Mitchell of Dusty/Shout  fame. The show played to packed houses across the country, including a sold-out show at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall in 2012.

Before the show was staged, Melinda sent Doris the script. “I wanted to make sure she was happy with the way we had portrayed her, and she came back giving me the thumbs up, which made me very happy.

Following the successful capital city seasons, Melinda created a concert production of the show, Melinda Does Doris: A Tribute to Doris Day, which has toured to appreciative audiences in cities and towns all around Australia.

In October 2016, Melinda released a second Doris album, Melinda Does Doris … Again – The Movie Songs. And in June 2017, she teamed up with Tom Burlinson for another sold-out performance at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall as well as at Melbourne and Brisbane, celebrating the hits of Doris Day and Frank Sinatra in a show called Young At Heart.

Melinda is saddened by Doris’ passing, but proud to present A Farewell To Doris, knowing that Doris’ work will continue to bring joy to audiences of all ages. “Doris was multi-talented, a true triple threat: a world-class singer, dancer and actor. But it is her beautiful spirit that will stay with me. Doris was so likeable and exuded such sincerity and joy and all that is good. There will never be another like her”

Singing her songs and telling her incredible story of resilience has been an absolute honour, and I’m happy to have the opportunity to celebrate her wonderful talent with audiences once again.

It’s January 1788 and a mysterious fleet is amassing in the harbour. Seven clan leaders must make a momentous decision: to send these strangers on their way or welcome them?...

A Moogahlin Performing Arts and Sydney Theatre Company Production

THE VISITORS

By Jane Harrison | Directed by Wesley Enoch

On a sweltering day in January 1788, seven clan leaders gather on a sandstone escarpment overlooking the harbour. The attendees, six of them Elders and one new initiate, catch-up, laugh together, share a meal and compare notes. But beyond the friendly banter, protocols, and hospitality, a momentous decision is waiting to be made. A mysterious fleet of giant nawi is amassing in the harbour and as they creep closer, these seven representatives must choose unanimously: whether to send these strangers on their way or welcome them? After its Sydney Theatre Award-winning premiere production at the 2020 Sydney Festival, Muruwari playwright Jane Harrison’s The Visitors will be reworked for this brand new production directed by one of Australia’s most celebrated directors, Quandamooka man Wesley Enoch. Co-produced by Moogahlin Performing Arts and Sydney Theatre Company, The Visitors is at once a riveting, deeply researched insight into one of the most impactful and painful days in Australia’s history, and a hugely entertaining study of how communities respond to change and the unknown.
