Mildura Weekly : Friday July 25 Vol 8 No 38
Mildura Weekly – 25/07/14 17 www.milduraphonebook.com.au START spreading the news Mildura, internationally-ac - claimed production ‘Simply Sinatra’ is on its way to the Mildura Arts Centre. ‘Simply Sinatra’ stars Aus- tralian actor Tom Burlinson as Frank Sinatra, with tomor- row night’s show described as “a celebration of the music, career and life of ‘Old Blue Eyes.’” Having previously played the voice of ‘young Frank’ in the Golden Globe award- winning mini-series ‘Sinatra,’ Burlinson’s ‘Simply Sinatra’ premiered in Australia in 1998 to rave reviews, and after a national tour he performed the show in Canada and Las Vegas. On his return to Austra- lia, Simply Sinatra was again in demand, with Burlinson invited to Sydney’s Star City Showroom where he per- formed a number of sell-out seasons. Critics around the world agreed that Burlinson had a knack of “reproducing the unmistakable timbre and ges- tures that were trademarks of Sinatra,” with the two-hour show seeing Burlinson per- form 30 of Sinatra’s most popular classics. Burlinson said that while Sinatra may not have had all the individual elements some of the other singers of the era had, when he sang a song “it got sung.” “I don’t try and imper- sonate Frank, but I sing very much in the Sinatra style,” he said. “Between the songs I chat with the audience and provide some biographical details and entertaining anec- dotes, always focusing on the music of Sinatra.” Tickets for ‘Simply Sina- tra’ are available online – www.milduraartscentre.com. au. ‘Simply Sinatra’ a tribute to Old Blue Eyes... “I don’t try and impersonate Frank, but I sing very much in the Sinatra style.” – Tom Burlinson ST Joseph’s College students will take on one of the most popular musicals of all time next week, with a cast of 37 to showcase their version of ‘Annie’ at the Mercy Theatre. Set in 1933 during the Great Depression, the musi- cal follows the life of 11-year- old Annie – an orphan at the Municipal Girls Orphanage. The production follows Annie’s search to find ‘fam- ily,’ her numerous run-ins with the greedy head of the orphanage ‘Miss Hannigan,’ and her eventual pairing with billionaire Oliver Warbucks. Based on the popular Harold Gray comic strip ‘Little Orphan Annie’ – and the book by Thomas Mee- han – the original Broadway production opened in 1977 and ran for nearly six years, setting a record for the Alvin Theatre (now the Neil Simon Theatre). It spawned numerous productions in many coun- tries, as well as national tours and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. The musical’s top songs ‘Tomorrow’ and ‘Hard-Knock Life’ have also gone on to become extremely popular, while also claiming numer- ous awards. ‘Annie’ will enjoy its Mer- cy Theatre debut next Thurs- day, July 31, from 7.30pm, with shows to follow on Fri- day, August 1 (7.30pm) and Saturday, August 2 (2pm and 7.30pm). Annie producer, and St Joseph’s College teacher, Lau- ra Poulton, said the cast and crew were ready and raring to go ahead of opening night. “Our cast and crew has been rehearsing and work- ing really hard in the lead up to opening night, with re- hearsals getting underway in April,” she said. “We’ve put together an extremely talented cast, with a number of our talented Year 7 and 8 students sure to blow audiences away. “This is probably one of more talented casts St Joe’s has ever assembled for a school production.” Laura said Year 11 stu- dent Annabelle Southwell had done her best to trans- form into the lead character – even going as far as to dye her hair! “Annabelle has gone from blonde to auburn, and she really is the perfect little Annie,” she said. “One of the reasons we chose to do Annie this year was due to the array of young, talented performers we have among our students.” Annie follows an ambi- tious and successful run for the St Joseph’s College’s pro- duction department, with the school’s previous perfor- mances tackling everything from ‘Beauty and the Beast’ to ‘Grease.’ “This year with such a talented young brigade – es- pecially in the female depart- ment – Annie was the perfect fit,” Laura said. Tickets for Annie are $20 for adults – $15 concession – and are available online at www.sjcmda.vic.edu.au, or by contacting 5018 8086. ‘Annie’ to showcase St Joe’s talented youngsters SHIREFocus THE SHIRE ON TWO RIVERS Tel: (03) 5027 5027 | Fax: (03) 5027 5000 | Email: firstname.lastname@example.org P.
