Draculas Cabaret  “Resurrection”

Now at Draculas Cabaret  “Resurrection” Tuesday-Saturdays from 7pm

Resurrection plays like a greatest hits on scratched vinyl. It brings together the most requested acts of the past decade, revamped with slap-face costumes, retro-now songs, mesmerising special effects and serrated edge comedy. Dracula’s continues to ride the blood wave of reinvention, as the goth punk craze of the ‘80s has transmuted from sulky trash to subversive vamp chic. Just for THEATREPEOPLE, we are doing a Show Only Deal for $60, Tuesday to Friday (subject to availability). Call Draculas to book it in! 03 9340 2600

Dracula’s is rated MA15+. You will experience: loud live music, partial nudity, unrestrained comedy, wild staff and supernatural themes.

FILM AND TV SHOWREEL MAKING COURSE 
Oct 4 – Nov 4 all-day
Drama With A Difference is one of Australia’s leading, independent drama schools. With a history that spans over more than twenty years, it is the launching pad of many successful Australian actors. Our students have appeared in major and major guest roles in high profile feature films, as well as just about every Australian television series that has run during the school’s operation. Students have also obtained many ads and roles in professional theatre.
We are holding a Film and TV course, with an option to make a professional showreel. This is an ideal course for aspiring and emerging actors. If you don’t already have real footage from film and TV, some places charge thousands of dollars for a “mock up” showreel in an attempt to make a mini-movie or TV series. These showreels never look authentic, especially when competing against actors who have reams of real footage on their showreels.
As we have strong connections with the professional industry, the feedback we constantly receive is that emerging actors would be far better to put the focus on themselves in their “mocked up” showreels, and not attempt to create real sets, outdoor locations etc.. After all, they are looking at YOU and YOUR ABILITY and that is where the focus of the showreel should lie. The major point is that your acting should be good; not the surroundings and the location!
With the above in mind, we are starting a Film and TV course, where each participant will be given an appropriate scene and monologue to work on every week. They will get to view their work on film and learn how to better it from an expert in the industry. Then, those who are interested in making a showreel will be given the details of a very good camera person and editor, to have the best of their work formatted into a professional showreel that showcases their ability to act. That is where the sole focus will lie. It is, however, optional to have the showreel made. Some students may elect to do the course alone, which will still offer them great skills in Film and TV acting. The showreel involves an additional, extremely reasonable cost of approximately $200 – $250.00
The course runs every Tuesday night from Tuesday 24th October until Tuesday 19th December, and there is also a six hour workshop on Saturday 16 December. During this workshop, students will be given endless industry advice and undertake a four hour workshop with Alison Barrett – one of Australia’s most influential and experienced casting consultants. Other agents and / or casting directors will also visit throughout the course and give feedback to students and answer questions.
This course is being taught by our most experienced teachers and other industry experts. To find out more about it, please go to the following link which will give you all the dates, costs, locations etc…

BABIRRA Music Theatre is delighted to invite you to our October 2017 production of THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE.

It’s 1922 and young Millie Dillmount has come to New York City from Kansas, in search of a new life for herself. Her grand plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and then marry him. However, the best laid plans…… The owner of her dingy hotel kidnaps young girls to sell to the Far East, her wealthy boss is slow in proposing marriage, and the man she actually falls in love with doesn’t have a dime to his name… or so he tells her.

The winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Thoroughly Modern Millie was the 2002 season’s most awarded new show on Broadway. Based on the 1967 Academy Award-winning film starring Julie Andrews, Thoroughly Modern Millie takes you back to the height of the Jazz Age in New York City, when “moderns” were bobbing their hair, raising their hemlines, entering the workforce and rewriting the rules of love.

Thoroughly Modern Millie is thoroughly funny, entertaining and romantic. It is a glittering dip into the twenties, featuring show-stopping tap and Charleston numbers, glorious melodies, kooky characters and glamorous flapper dresses, celebrating “Classic Broadway” in all its glory. Thoroughly Modern Millie isn’t thoroughly modern at all, in fact, it’s thoroughly old-fashioned – the perfect mix of the golden age of Broadway all wrapped up in a brand new show.

MILLIE will run for 8 performances at The Whitehorse Centre, 397 Whitehorse Rd, Nunawading:

  • Friday 6 October 20127, 8pm, followed by Gala Supper (additional cost $15)
  • Saturday 7 October 2017, 2pm and 8pm

  • Thursday 12 October 2017, 8pm
  • Friday 13 October 2017, 8pm
  • Saturday 14 October 2017, 2pm and 8pm

  • Adults: $44
  • Concession: $40
  • Group (10+): $40
  • Child (under 15): $36
  • Family (2 adults + 2 children): $152
