Burdekin Singers & Theatre Company presents Beauty & the Beast

Based on the smash hit 1991 Disney movie and dating back to a late 18th-century classic French fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who feels out of place in her provincial French village. When her father is imprisoned in a mysterious castle, Belle’s attempt to rescue him leads to her capture by the Beast, a grisly and fearsome monster, who was long ago trapped in his gruesome form by an enchantress. The only way for the Beast to become human once again is if he learns to love and be loved in return. There is a time limit, too: once a magical rose loses all of its petals, all hope will be lost and he will stay a Beast forever. The Beast’s enchanted household--populated by such beloved characters as Mrs. Potts, Lumiere, Cogsworth, and Chip--watch anxiously as Belle and the Beast grow to understand and befriend one another. Their feelings grow ever deeper as the clock ticks and petals continue to fall off the enchanted rose--will they confess their love for one another before it is too late?

Take a couple of swingers, hand them microphones, slip them into tuxedos & what do you have?
The Swingin’ Martinis!!
With a double scoop of comedy, a generous serving of musical mayhem and some good old slapstick...The Swingin’ Martinis have put together a cocktail that any self-respecting Swinger will not want to miss out on! Johnny Reid and Vinny Nowell (aka The Swingin’ Martinis) have worked together in various guises for over 20 years and it shows! They share the same dress sense (nothing less than a tuxedo) and from the very second they enter the room there is an energy and expertise to their show that is staggering. They swing their way through an array of classic tunes that have the audience singing (and dancing) along at a cracking pace! But make no mistake, this show is not just about a couple of guys who can sing well, it is also a classic comedy double act that has elements of voluntary and contagious audience participation. With a show that is high energy, musically entertaining, interactive and a whole lot of fun, many clients have felt the urge to say "Dean and Jerry live again".

Buddy the Concert features some of the greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll classics ever recorded, performed live on stage....
Buddy Holly

featured

Buddy Holly was one of the greatest pioneers of Rock and Roll in the 1950's. His career spanning only two short years before the day the music died, he still managed to leave behind one of the biggest musical legacies with a wealth of material that had a lasting impact on popular music. Over 20 top 40 hits prior to his tragic death in a plane crash that was immortalized in the song “American Pie”, A legacy that to this day has never been beaten and inspired artists like The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Queen & Elton John.

Buddy the Concert features some of the greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll classics ever recorded, performed live on stage along with all the holly hits including “Peggy Sue”, “That’ll Be The Day”, “Rave On”, “Oh Boy”, “It’s So Easy” and more, It’s a show that has had outstanding reviews everywhere its toured, full of energy and vitality, the show has some brilliant re-imaginings of some classics, like the extended blues guitar solo version of Well All Right by Cameron, along with blindingly accurate and faithful recreations of the hits, as you remember hearing them.

Donning Holly’s trademark horn-rimmed glasses, his ever so engaging and charismatic figure and a lilting vocal hiccup is Scott Cameron as he returns to the role that made him famous. Scott "Buddy" Cameron - as he became known – was a childhood guitar prodigy in Australia sharing stages with Tommy & Phil Emmanuel, Slim Dusty, Jade Hurley, Glen Shorrock, Ross Wilson, Keith Urban, Doug Parkinson & Brian Cadd. In 2004 however he found his calling answering an audition call for the Buddy Holly Story musical. His uncanny look, eerily similar voice and guitar prowess, transformed Scott to become the single most recognised Buddy Holly performer in the world! Receiving the support of Buddy Holly's family and friends including The Peggy Sue, Holly’s Widow Maria Elena and Bob Montgomery (who wrote with Buddy and penned the song Heartbeat). Scott had a remarkable run of rave reviews for his portrayal of Holly in the lead role of the International musical Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story in productions staged from 2005 through to 2009. The musical took Scott all over the world including London’s West End.
