Cast members from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, King Kong and Jersey Boys along with a number of guest performers, will come together to perform a variety of songs from their personal repertoires to support the Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF) on Sunday, 17 March at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne commencing at 7.30pm.
This one off Sunday evening concert is being held to support The Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF) and will go directly to the Victorian music programs. The ACMF is a charity that provides free music education and instruments to disadvantaged and Indigenous children and youth at risk. The ACMF’s free music education program has been running for 2 years at Seaford Park Primary School and is highly regarded as having contributed to student confidence and better behavior.
Melbourne music lovers will see David Hobson, Rachael Beck, George Kapiniaris; Jennifer Vuletic, (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Will Centurion (Jersey Boys) Queenie Van De Zandt (King Kong) along with Debra Byrne and other special guests take centre stage at this memorable event for a celebration of the music that each of them personally loves.
Co-hosted by Jennifer Vuletic and George Kapiniaris, the concert will feature wonderful performances from some of Australia’s best performers and just a few of the highlights from the afternoon’s special entertainment will include:
· A duet by Rachael Beck and Debra Byrne performing “I Dreamed A Dream” from Les Miserables. Both played the role of ‘Fantine’ 10 years apart and this song has never been performed as a duet.
· Both George Kapiniaris and Queenie Van Der Zandt will bring their hilarious comedy routines to the stage
· David Hobson with Andrew Kroenert will perform “Till There Was You”.
· A group choral number from the cast of Jersey Boys and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will be a highlight
· The ACMF choir from Seaford Park Primary School will perform an opening number to get the show started
