Fifty Forever comes to Adelaide

May 18th 2014 04:27
Fifty Forever!
Comes to Adelaide


2014 welcomes the second coming of international sensation
Miss Candy Chambers
as she celebrates being
50 Forever!


The Bluebee Room, Basement, 131 Pirie Street (cnr Hyde Street) Adelaide

7pm on Wednesday June 4, 11, 18 & 25
8pm on Saturday June 7, 21 & 28


Cost: $30


Chattanooga, November 21 - The star spangled chanteuse Candy Chambers announced her return to Australia with a new all singing, all dancing spectacular, celebrating being 50 (the new 30!). After her 2013 appearance in Australia wowed Adelaide Cabaret Festival audiences as one of Joey Aria's special guests, Chambers decided time was ripe to play down under again.

Since sharing her deliciously flavoured life-story in the crowd-pleasing show Bittersweet at the 2006 Adelaide Feast Festival, Chambers has reached a climactic peak. Announcing the launch of her new production Miss Chambers said, "Over the years I often wondered, as I'm sure we all do, if I'd ever reach fifty years of age, and I knew if I did mount that enormous peak there would be cause for celebration... Well, against all the odds I finally did land, slap bang, right on that sticky point and it's been such a great climax I've planted myself firmly on it ever since. You'd have to work seriously hard to get me off!"


Formally considered to be America's underground sweetheart Candy Chambers has had many highs and lows in a career spanning some of the most colourful decades society has seen. From humble origins in Chattanooga, Candy came to be a much-awarded player in the adult movie industry appearing in a variety of sought after positions. Recipient of an Aladdin's cave of awards and seeking to fulfil her deep desire to transition from adult entertainment to the legitimate stage Candy took a lot of hard blows, but her proud honesty and positive attitude towards life finally paid off as she explained at her launch, "Yes I have been rehabilitated by 'the man' as they say, and although I don't discuss it so much these days I'm not ashamed of doing time in the correctional system," she says.

"The tabloid press tried to drag me through the mud, but my public are better than that, they understand who I am and why I'm proud to be a woman with a past, because that's exactly what it is, past; ask Oprah, she'll tell you. I'm an authentic success because I'm more than my past, I'm my present, and my present to you is a big gift wrapped box full of sweet wisdom that'll make you think about how hard it can get. You know it can get hard but no matter how hard it gets it's not impossible to ride on towards a happy ending," said Candy.

"50 Forever celebrates reaching that pinnacle in life you were not convinced you'd reach because of all those hard things trying to pin you down. It's uplifting, it's fun, it's a chance to share my sunny disposition and show off my abilities to overcome adversity. I'm taking my audience sightseeing on the best route I can possibly navigate. I touch on some of those hard sticky points, but before we're done I push my envelope to a very happy place, so happy you'll all want to be 50 Forever!"

Where: The Bluebee Room, Basement, 131 Pirie Street (cnr Hyde Street) Adelaide

When: 8pm on Saturday June 7, 21 & 28, 7pm on Wednesday June 4, 11, 18 & 25

Cost: $30

Jamie Jewell plays Candy Chambers in a 75 minute cabaret that takes the audience sightseeing on an awe inspiring route across fifty years of adversity and lands on the most positive philosophy imaginable - enjoy yourself, it's later than you think!

Filled with songs that tug at the heart strings and ... there'll be more coming, hang on to yourself (promise it'll be worth it).

Directed by David Paul Jobling

After his recent spell in Jakarta directing and performing in Aladdin, Jewell returned to Australia to sing guest spots for the 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival, appear in State Opera of South Australia productions and bring his much loved alter-ego Miss Candy Chambers back to the stage for this new production.

Unicorn, Onkaparinga River, the Sydney Festival's sell-out interactive show Puppy Love: The tale of a dog and worked with companies as diverse as Darlinghurst Theatre, Sydney Theatre Company, Australian Nouveau Theatre, Trans Express and Adelaide Festival Centre Trust.

CHARLES FINCH FILMMAKERS DINNER


Edward Norton leads Chivas Toast and honours FilmAid
Christopher Hampton receives Filmmaker Award
at the CHARLES FINCH FILMMAKERS DINNER


Cannes, May 16th 2014 - As the film world's elite gathered in Cannes, official Festival sponsor Chivas Regal, the world's first luxury whisky paid tribute to its longstanding charity partner FilmAid at the Charles Finch Annual Filmmakers Dinner, as renowned actor and philanthropist, Edward Norton encouraged the industry to toast the community-spirited side of the world’s silver screen legends with a glass of Chivas Regal 25.

Held against the stunning backdrop of the Riviera and hosted by Charles Finch, the Annual Filmmakers Dinner was the most glamorous and exclusive place to dine at the start of the Festival’s first weekend and the world’s stars and cultural powerhouses were certainly in attendance, including Naomi Watts, Harvey Weinstein, Gael Garcia Bernal, Gemma Arterton, Bryan Ferry, Julian Schnabel, Lea Seydoux, and Gong Li, Daniel Bruhl, and Matt Smith.

Charles Finch of Finch & Partners and Chivas Regal 25 were proud to honour OSCAR-winning filmmakers, Alfonso Cuáron and Christopher Hampton. Hampton is an acclaimed British screenwriter and film director best known for films such as Dangerous Liaisons and Atonement and Cuáron, is perhaps best known for his recent OSCAR win for ‘Best Director’ for Gravity at this year’s Academy Awards. Both recipients were presented with the Filmmakers Award for their exceptional contributions to the film industry over the years. Previous recipients include: Bernardo Bertolucci, Terry Gilliam, Bertrand Tavernier and Jeremy Thomas.

The evening culminated with guest of honour Edward Norton leading a toast and presenting a cheque of $100,000 to Simon Goff of FilmAid on behalf of Chivas Regal 25. Norton is renowned for his award-nominated work both in front and behind the camera, and also for his lifelong support for social activism and philanthropy, and the donation demonstrates Chivas Regal 25’s on-going support for the charity that aims to use the power of film to bring aid, hope and education to refugees and other communities in need of help around the world.

Edward Norton commented: “It is a great pleasure to be here tonight at the Charles Finch Filmmakers Dinner, sponsored by Chivas Regal 25. To be able to present FilmAid with such a generous donation on behalf of Chivas Regal is a great honour. Philanthropy & activism are causes hugely important to me. Increasingly, we are seeing brands addressing social and environmental issues more than ever before. Charitable causes such as Filmaid need support in order to drive awareness and change consumer attitudes and behavior. With the help of partners like Chivas Regal around the world, FilmAid will be able to reach their next milestone.”

Simon Goff, Executive Director of Film Aid commented “At Film Aid we witness the power of film every day – to change lives, shape communities and give voice to refugees. We are very grateful to Chivas Regal for their ongoing support and commitment to our charity.”

Charles Finch, CEO of Finch and Partners commented: “We're thrilled to be holding the annual Filmmakers dinner at the 67th Cannes Film Festival for the 6th year and we're delighted that Chivas Regal 25 is supporting us. Since the beginning, we have honoured some incredible filmmakers including, Jeremy Thomas, Bertrand Tavernier, Terry Gilliam, most recently Bernardo Bertolucci, and this year is no exception with Christopher Hampton and Alfonso Cuáron.”

Richard Black, Global Brand Director, Chivas Regal added: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to honour Christopher Hampton and Alfonso Cuáron for their unrivalled contribution to the film industry at the Charles Finch Filmmakers’ Dinner. We are also pleased to be continuing our journey with such a prestigious charity whereby we can help change peoples’ lives through film. We look forward to another legendary year at the Cannes Film Festival.”

THE THEATRE DIVISION is an emerging independent theatre company established in 2014 by producer Alistair Thomson and director Lisa Freshwater to develop, produce and tour popular, innovative live entertainment.

Productions will range from intimate solo shows and regional tours to concerts and large-scale theatrical productions. THE THEATRE DIVISION is the culmination of Thomson and Freshwater’s creative partnership that has seen the production of the charity concerts Raise the Roof! and Hats Off! and the Launchpad cabaret seasons.

& ALBUM GOES PLATINUM


Bliss N Eso have kicked off their biggest ever tour in style with a huge opening show at Bathurst Showground and a thumping crowd of over 4,000 in Newcastle on Saturday night (12/4/14).



The Circus Under the Stars tour (Check it out here) sees the trio ship tonnes of state-of-the-art staging equipment across the country over a two month period, setting up outdoor stages in massive parks in sixteen cities. They are joined by two of the country’s biggest up-and-coming hip-hop artists; Melbourne’s Seth Sentry and Sydney’s Horrorshow, as well as cult American singer-songwriter Ceekay Jones who features on the trio’s hit single ‘My Life’.

The enormous tour hits Bliss N Eso's hometown of Sydney this Thursday night (Good Friday Eve) where they take over The Domain, one of the city’s most iconic outdoor locations and the former site of Homebake Festival. Alongside an entirely new set-list and incredible production, it will also be Sydney fans’ first opportunity to see the recently unveiled Bliss N Eso customised Kombi. Three years in the making, the Kombi has a couple of special features which are only unveiled in person.

Go behind the scenes on the van’s grand unveiling at Circus Under the Stars’ opening show here.



One of the highest selling Australian albums of the last year, the band's latest album Circus in the Sky (out now through Illusive) has now achieved Platinum sales status – their second release in a row to achieve the feat. The album has spawned a number of massive singles including ‘My Life’, ‘House of Dreams’ (the soundtrack to the AFL Finals), ‘Can’t Get Rid of This Feeling’ (feat. Daniel Merriweather) and ‘Act Your Age’ (feat. Bluejuice).

With tickets flying across the country, massive outdoor stages in every city and the biggest headline bill the genre has ever seen, this is shaping up to be one tour that will be talked about for years to come. Don’t miss out.

April 14th 2014 01:47
THIRD ANNUAL
SLIDE CABARET FESTIVAL


NEW VENUES, THE LATE NIGHT PIANO BAR AND CELEBRITIES GALORE. SYDNEY - IT'S ALL HAPPENING!

Monday 19th May - Saturday 31st May 2014



Slide Lounge, 41 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst and Pullman Hyde Park, 36 College Street Sydney.

Three Course Dinner and Show Packages from $70.00 7pm (pre purchased only)

Show Only Tickets from $30.00


The THIRD ANNUAL SLIDE CABARET FESTIVAL is the biggest and best yet with the addition of a new venue, a late night piano bar, an exciting variety of supporting artists and of course, the stellar line up of award winning local, national and international artists that Slide has proven can deliver to Sydney time and time again.

We are thrilled to announce the star of Ten’s WONDERLAND, BEN MINGAY as this year’s Festival Ambassador. Last year Ben played the role of ‘Buzz’ for Network 7’s final series of Packed to the Rafters, he also performed as a featured artist for Room 8’s spectacular 'Songs of James Bond'. In 2012, he starred as 'Zack Mayo' in the World Premiere of An Officer and A Gentleman, following a Sydney season as the infamous 'Tommy DeVito’ in the award winning musical Jersey Boys. Spend an evening with the mercurial Ben Mingay as he takes you on his unconventional journey through the entertainment industry!

Get your Pop, Rock and Soul food, a side of Musical Theatre and some Opera for dessert. From Bill Medley to Mozart, Joe Cocker to Carousel, this evening is guaranteed to satisfy your musical appetite.

Kicking off the festival on May 19 is the ACMF Music Trivia Fundraiser hosted by DICKO and CATHERINE ALCORN. ACMF, The Australian Children’s Music Foundation, passionately believes that no child should be deprived of access to a music education. Join your hosts and ACMF Ambassadors Guy Noble, Michael Cormick and Peter Northcott for a wonderful evening that will raise money for the ACMF... with special guest performances and celebrity appearances.

A fabulous night of laughs, trivia, food and goodwill, so get a table of friends together! ACMF - Changing young lives through music.

Award winning New York based cabaret artist KIM SMITH returns to Slide to present his brand new show ‘Nova Noir’ charting a dark and whimsical path through a neo-Weimar pop-fantasia of genre-bending pop and peculiar period treasures. Mining his debut album, Nova, Smith gives his own electropop originals a decadent 1920′s treatment, while re-imagining works by Weimar-era composers, and modern-day artists alike, including: Friedrich Hollaender, Cher, Kurt Weill, the Supremes, Hanns Eisler, and myriad glittering others.

Thanks to this years principle sponsor, The Pullman Hyde Park Hotel, festival goers can look forward to an entirely new concept and experience when International never was and washed-up celebrity UTA UBER KOOL JA comes to town. Like all fabulous divas, this is one comeback tour that will never end. In 2012, she had to increase capacity; such was the demand for her hotel room parties. So now, Uta is coming to Sydney baring all: she’ll dance for you; cry at you; laugh with you. Her intimate parties take place inside a premiere suite at The Pullman Hyde Park hotel on Fri 23, Sat 24, Fri 30 and Sat 31 May. Every inch of the room is Uta's stage, and the audience are her guests. Inspired by amazing women of the 20th and 21st century Uta Uber Kool Ja is a tongue-in-cheek fictional biography of Uta: an actor/feminist/pop star/artist/designer/exhibiti onist/rock star.

AVIGAIL HERMAN presents her brand new show ‘Good Girl/Bad Girl’; a modern day look at the seven deadly sins & heavenly virtues & was inspired by Audra Macdonald’s 2004 song cycle of the seven deadly sins. An eclectic array of songs & stories create a funny, poignant & sometimes startling evening. Through a series of characters & wonderful music written by the likes of Ricky Ian Gordon, Jeff Blumenkrantz, Stephen Flaherty & Lyn Ahrens , Stephen Sondheim, Annie Dinnerman, John Bucchino & Lance Horne to mention but a few, we investigate & ponder just how these sins & virtues instruct & influence our very existence or do they?

After a triumphant debut at Slide last year, London cabaret savant SPANKY returns to Slide with his award winning show Candice McQueen: Nasty - hyper-mythological cabaret and musical fable of an immortal Mister Sister named Candice. Set across time, and throughout the ages, Candice was already here when God created the Earth, she hung out with Mary in biblical Jerusalem, and River Phoenix lured her deep into the Hollywood maddened Los Angeles of the 1990’s! With a spectacular live soundtrack featuring music by the Indigo Girls, Color Me Badd, Vanilla Ice, MC Hammer, Alanis Morrisette, All Saints and Roxette - played live onstage by British rock wunderkind, guitarist Chris Booroff (Kids Can’t Fly).

DEBORA KRIZAK (A Chorus Line, Sweet Charity) brings us cABBAret, the story of ABBA ‘de-flared’ and stripped naked. Behind the sickly sweet melodies of the some of the most successfully written pop songs, lay the sordid tales, the mystery and the genius behind the biggest super group of all time. Join Deborah as she takes you on this “Fabba-lous” musical journey, backed by some of the country’s best musicians- for a toe-tapping, musically enlightening and ‘tragically’ funny insight into the workings of one of the most memorable acts in history.

Just when you think you’d seen it all, THE BOLD AND THE MUSICAL comes along. Bitch fights and fisty cuffs, love triangles (squares and/or oblongs),wedding crashing ex-fiencees, transient amnesiac husbands and wives who rise from the dead. Aussie singer/songwriter Bianca Moon, and renowned Musical Director Anne-Maree McDonal are the women who write the music behind the worlds most watched TV soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, and now, we bring it to you live on stage! Be afraid. Be very afraid! Starring Barry Quin, Michael Cormick, Lesley Hancock, Debora Krizak, PJ Lane and Bianca Moon.

Every Wednesday to Friday night throughout the festival Slide will turn into the LATE NIGHT PIANO BAR when host DARREN MAPES takes over the stage. Ticket holders will be invited and encouraged to stick around after the headlining shows to embrace the old school New York piano bar style and sing along to their favourite tunes. They may even spot a celebrity guest!

Audiences will be treated to extra special entertainment this year as we add supporting artists to the roster including 2014 Cabaret Showcase Winner MELODY BECK, Cabaret Showcase finalist BRENDAN HAY, critically acclaimed Adelaide entertainer MATT GILBERTSON and award winning artist MICHAEL GRIFFITHS.

The Rise and Fall of LITTLE VOICE

April 5th 2014 01:33
Lane Cove Theatre Company presents

The Rise and Fall of LITTLE VOICE
by Jim Cartwright, directed by Christine Firkin

Finding your own voice can be magic…

Winner! Evening Standard Award and Olivier Award for Best Comedy.

“Utterly beguiling.” - London Daily Mail

“Entertainment at its best. Original, hilarious and hauntingly sad.”- Daily Telegraph



“We leave singing, fired by a glowing mixture of grit and innocence, magic, irony and truth.” - What's On

Blown fuses, real and metaphorical, punctuate the action with flashes of pent up energy in this acclaimed play presented this April by Lane Cove Theatre Co.

The diminutive heroine frequently plunges the dilapidated house she shares with her alcoholic mother into darkness by playing her dead father's records at a volume matched only by the soulful power of her vocal impressions.

Little Voice has a hidden talent: she can channel every iconic chanteuse from Judy Garland to Edith Piaf. She hides in her room, crooning and dreaming of love, while her disheveled mother mistakes a seedy agent's interest as affection rather than enthusiasm for the goldmine buried in her daughter's throat. This is an engaging fairy tale of despair, love and – finally - hope as LV struggles to find a voice of her own.

Directed by Christine Firkin, the all-star cast features Wendy Morton, Nick Bolton, Kevin Weir, Luke Reeves, Michelle Bellamy, Mark Reiss and Debbie Neilson as LV.

The strictly limited season of just five performances plays at the O’Kelley Drama Theatre of St Ignatius College, Riverview from 10 to 13 April. Don’t miss it!

Lane Cove Theatre Company presents The Rise and Fall of Little Voice
Thursday 10th to Saturday 12 April at 7.30pm plus Sat 12 and Sun 13 at 2pm

The Paper Kites National Tour

March 27th 2014 03:53
The Paper Kites

Gearing up to hit the road on their huge all-ages national tour, Melbourne's much loved folk five-piece The Paper Kites announce supports Phebe Starr and Airling.

Sydney songstress Phebe Star has been turning heads across the country and beyond, drawing comparisons with the likes of Kate Bush from Noisey (USA) with her enthralling sound, caught somewhere in the web between Kraftwerk, Bjork and The Cure. In just the last eighteen months, she's drawn 40K iTunes Single Of The Week downloads for her breakout single Jurassica, had her video collaboration with Swedish textile artist Anna Moberg launched by Harper's Bazaar, and been hailed by New York/London blog heavyweight Neon Gold one to watch.



Airling (aka Hannah Shepherd joined by Brisbane multi-instrumentalist Graham Ritchie) bring otherworldly vocals, lush electronics and dreamlike beats to the Paper Kites' tour. Having collaborated with Tom Iansek (Big Scary), Airling is fresh off the release of her debut single, Ouroboros.



The Paper Kites have enjoyed a whirlwind six months since the release of their highly anticipated debut album, States. Having most recently released the video for the track Tenenbaum, the band has also recently embarked on a sold out headline tour of the USA and Canada as well as an illustrious support slot alongside Canadian singer-songwriter, City and Colour. Reigning in at #17 on the ARIA Charts, debut album States received a number of widespread accolades for sophomore single, Young.

Don't miss your chance to see The Paper Kites preforming their much-loved old, new, and most popular songs.

Each BAFTA Scholar will receive up to £10,000 towards their course fees for a year, mentoring support from BAFTA members, and free access to BAFTA events around the UK. In return, the scholarship recipients will share their learning experiences on BAFTA Guru (bafta.org/guru), BAFTA’s online learning resource, and participate in future BAFTA outreach to young people.



For a second year, three students will each receive one of the Prince William Scholarships in Film, Television and Games, supported by BAFTA and Warner Bros. These scholarships, an integral element of Warner Bros. Creative Talent, Warner Bros.’ investment in UK creative industries’ skills and training, are awarded in the name of HRH The Duke of Cambridge in his role as President of BAFTA. The recipients will have their fees funded by Warner Bros. and will additionally receive a short funded work placement within the Warner Bros. group of companies, access to a Warner Bros. mentor, and invitations to a series of industry masterclasses.

Anne Morrison, Deputy Chair of BAFTA, and Chair of BAFTA’s Learning and Events Committee, said: “The BAFTA Scholarship Programme is fast becoming an important means by which talented individuals, who aren’t from the wealthiest backgrounds, can develop their skills and progress their careers. BAFTA’s support goes beyond the financial, with access to our industry events and one-to-one mentoring combining with their studies to give BAFTA Scholars a well-rounded experience. We want to attract the brightest and the best to our industries, so I encourage anyone with potential who is struggling to fund their studies to apply.”

Josh Berger CBE, President & Managing Director, Warner Bros. UK, Ireland & Spain, said: “This unique collaboration between BAFTA and Warner Bros. enables upcoming talent, who would not otherwise have the opportunity, to get their first step into the creative industries. Our inaugural Prince William Scholars have already demonstrated to us what is possible when talented people are given access to opportunities and we encourage people who have the potential and commitment to pursue a career in the creative industries to apply.”

The BAFTA Scholarship Programme, which is now in its third year, is part of BAFTA’s charitable activity to support talented people at all stages of their career in film, television and games. The recipients will be selected by a panel of industry professionals following an open call to UK nationals applying for eligible UK courses.

The BAFTA Scholarship Programme has been made possible by the generous support of the Academy Circle, Kevin Burke, the Edwin Fox Foundation, the Galashan Trust, Evelina Girling, Linda Shire, the Lowy Mitchell Foundation, Rebecca Wang and Warner Bros.

The programme in the UK is part of BAFTA’s wider global scholarship activity, which this year sees the first BAFTA Scholarship Programme in Hong Kong, supported by The Yip Foundation, which is currently accepting applications from UK nationals wishing to study in Hong Kong at BAFTA-HKScholarships BAFTA Los Angeles has an active Scholarship Program offering financial support and mentorship to British students studying in the US; the BAFTA New York Media Studies Scholarship Program supports students pursuing media studies at undergraduate and graduate level institutions within the New York City area.
