Damien Leith – Tribute to Roy Orbison

After a sold-out run of ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison to metropolitan centres in 2016, revered singer-songwriter Damien Leith is gearing up to revisit the music of his idol in 2017 for a special The Hall of Fame Tour.

Taking the show to regional Australia, the tour is an opportunity for Damien to perform in towns he hasn’t played in years, or if at all. When the ROY show toured the capital cities earlier in the year, it was always his plan to take it on the road to country Australia.

Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy’s music. He recorded and worked with the late Barbara Orbison and continues to write with legendary musicians in Nashville who worked with Roy throughout his career. In fact, when Damien released his album Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison it stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks and it was nominated for not only an ARIA award, but also sold multi-platinum.

Money makes the world go around.  Portia has it.  Bassanio wants it.  Shylock lends it.  Antonio owes the value of it.

Love also plays a part. Portia offers it.  Bassanio wants it.  And Antonio may lose a pound of flesh for it.

This uncompromising and dark production explores the tense relationship and prejudices between those that have, and those that don’t.  Dark in its humour and bawdy in its romantic hijinks, The Merchant Of Venice takes audiences on a journey of love, mercy and justice.

Welcome to glorious Russia and a celebration of cheesy Europop which is almost like having Eurovision in our backyard.

Glamour power couple, Ivanka and Sergi, host a night of big songs, big hair and outrageous costumes where you get to wave your flags, cheer your Country and when the final song has been sung, you vote on who takes home Eurosong 2017.

The Sale Theatre Company present its homage to Eurovision so come along and celebrate all that is wrong, and gloriously right with it.  It will be even better than the real thing!

Nobody saw this happen so it may or may not be true.

A woman lives in the middle of a city, next to a tree that smells of lemons.  In this tree lives a family of crows, but their home is threatened by developers looking to build inner city apartments where factories and shops used to be.  One day, the child of the crows falls from the nest.  As night falls, the neighbourhood cats move in for the kill.  The woman intervenes and her encounter with the crows and their child transforms her life and ultimately transforms her.

Told by real life family, Maude Davey, David Pidd and their children, Alice (17) and Leo (10) in the tradition of travelling show biz troupes of old, The Crow Family shares this urban parable alongside songs, confessions, tales of famous and infamous families, Alice and Leo’s rule for being a good parent, and servings of cake.  It’s about urban scavengers and what we can learn from them, about children growing up and leaving home, about taking care of the world we share with birds and beasts.  The Crow Family is an insight into the delicate and difficult business of being a family.

Venue: Neerim Junction Hall, 2957 Main Neerim Road, Neerim Junction
