Songs in the key of Motown

Thursday 20 October, 7.30pm
Tickets: $65

By popular demand, the all-singing all-dancing Songs In The Key Of Motown is coming back to Australia!

Direct from the US comes the Encore Australian Tour of "SONGS IN KEY OF MOTOWN", a spectacular live concert production that takes you on a journey through Motown. "SONGS IN THE KEY OF MOTOWN" features SPECTRUM, a first-class vocal quartet that draws upon the talent of four radiant voices and diverse personalities. They have spent six stellar years recreating the sound and style of the Four Tops in Las Vegas' multi-million dollar production shows "American Superstars" and "Legends In Concert", the group has developed the versatility to credibly cover the music of groups from the Platters to the Temptations to Boyz 2 Men.

It is this versatility that has propelled them to the status of headlining their own shows in which they perform stirring renditions of the all the best cover tunes. They have teamed up with RADIANCE, a talented vocal quartet formed specifically to pay tribute to the Disco and Motown era paying tribute to the music of The Supremes, Martha and The Vandellas, The Marvelettes and other female artists from that amazing musical era.

Together they have created "SONGS IN KEY OF MOTOWN", a spectacular show transporting audiences back to an era of music that formed a major cornerstone in American music of the 60s and 70s. The costuming, the choreography, the harmonies, the energy and excitement are second to none.

SPECTRUM boasts four incredible singers, each with the voice of a solo artist, who combine their voices and dexterity to create the angelic harmonies and deft choreography that have become trademarks. The members of consist of singer-dancer E.C. ADAMS of Vicksburg, Mississippi; Chicago-born musician and versatile entertainer PIERRE JOVAN; DARRYL GRANT the silky-smooth, soaring-voiced first tenor from Rochester, New York and lastly, singer, actor and group founder CUSHNEY ROBERTS, from East Orange, New Jersey, who left the life of a Princeton-educated corporate engineer and cut his teeth in the casino lounges in route to becoming a well-respected Las Vegas showroom entertainer.

Let's just say this is a group of well-mannered, college-educated, world-traveled veterans of the entertainment business, who will entertain you! On the other hand, the members of the quartet RADIANCE are New York-born award-winning singer YOLANDA THARRINGTON, former New York Radio City Music Hall Rockette MARQUE MUNDAY, former member of the 90s chart-topping recording group Lace VIVIAN SCOTT and singer, dancer and entertainer CRYSTAL ROBINSON.

Flak – true stories from the men who flew in World War 2

Saturday 12 November, 10am

Tickets $5

We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Casey Cardinia Library Corporation

Michael Veitch has an obsession with all things flying, planes specifically, and he especially loves old war planes, so much so he wrote two books about pilots and their stories from World War 2. Flak and Flight are books Michael wrote after interviewing surviving pilots from World War 2.

Flak, the play, is five of these stories brought to life, in character, by Michael himself. We meet two Australians, a Welshman, an Englishman and surprisingly a former German pilot. Their stories will amaze you! All stories are of survival but their harrowing tales will leave you awe-inspired by their courage and luck. Michael will make you smile and cry and think. His interwoven narrative is filled with quirky tales of his own youth and his odd obsession with the Battle of Britain.

For anyone who is interested in history, has a family member who served, or just loves a good old-fashioned story Flak will definitely hit the right note.

Standing ovations around Australia – Michael definitely deserves the response he has had to date.

What a skilled character actor and storyteller he is.

Flak: written and performed by Michael Veitch, Directed by Helen Ellis, Lighting Design by Michael Brasser

Expect to hear some of Sammys big hits including Mr Candy Man, That Old Black Magic and Mr Bojangles.

Together they come together on stage as The Rat Pack. Delivering the timeless songs that we all love and sharing some funny stories and gags, this is one show that should not be missed.
