Libby O'Donovan and Beccy Cole take the audience on a journey of intertwining genres, swapping songs, sharing stories and breaking musical stereotypes.

It could be the anticipation of a curious audience, after all, who would expect golden girl of Country to swap notes with a critically acclaimed cabaret and jazz performer?

Whatever the magic, the fusion of these two sassy, funny, engaging and explosive entertainers is a match made ona a stage heaven. Individually, these talented women have been known to leave an audience breathless. From the energetic humour and honesty of Beccy Cole to the diversity and astonishingly rich vocal range of Libby O'Donovan - these two singer/songwriters are never afraid to say it like it is...together, they are incomparable.

The Lost WW1 Diaries

Date: 1st of September 2015

Venue: Civic Centre, Council Place

Contact Details: 

Tickets available at the Civic Centre, Public Library and the Visitor Centre. Civic Centre: 9083 1566

7.30pm start.

Obsessed from a young age by the Anzac legend and intrigued by the mystery surrounding the identity of two diggers from a family photo, Damian sets out on a quest to put names to the faces.

Whilst holidaying in Warrnambool, the discovery of a war diary in an op shop finally linked him to the legend. A renowned stand up and character comedian, Callinan (Backyard Ashes, Spicks & Specks, skithouse, 774ABC) brings to life the pages of the diary as we meet Paddy Callinan and his ‘push’ as they set off for ‘The Big Show’.

Along the way we meet Stanza, the prankster poet; Bluey, the outspoken union leader; Mocka, the inarticulate crack shot; Depot, the scrounger and Pirate, whose ability to talk could be the weapon that turns the war.

Callinan combines detailed research, hilarious but believable characterisations, black humour, absurdity and deft writing to swing the mood of the story from rollicking farce to aching pathos in a heart beat.

“Some performances move you with such force they’re in your thoughts well after the theatre lights dim and you’ve left the venue. This is one of them ... We laughed, we gasped, we wiped tears from our eyes. Memorable, Moving, Brilliant!”

Ali McGregor, the Opera Australia soprano who ran away with the circus has gone on to become one of our most successful cabaret exports. Fresh from sell-out tours of arts festival’s around the world, an ARIA nomination and a starring role in Club Swizzle at the Opera House, comes her award-winning solo show.

In Alchemy, Ali McGregor draws on all of her influences from opera, cabaret and trashy 80s pop divas for inspiration. Working alongside the finest jazz musicians, she creates unique hybrids from popular songs, standards and blues.

Expect to hear unique mashups and genre defying versions of Madonna, Salt ‘n Pepa and Kiss, like they were sung by a 40s siren in Vegas.

Ali McGregor has the kind of silky smooth singing voice that transports you to a different plane, in a way that makes you forget everything you were doing before walking in to the theatre and everything you intended to be doing when you walk out again' The Scotsman

Opera singer turned pop reinventor turned comedienne, Ali McGregor, now gives the jazz repertoire a much-needed makeover in her inimitable, sexedup style' The Adelaide Advertiser

'...a fusion of operatic purity and soulful improvisation..' The Adelaide Advertiser

‘...sparkles with sexy playfulness, moving simplicity and a beautiful warm tone.’ The Age

‘Her velvet vocals have the ability to transport the audience to a smoky 1940s jazz bar, blending modern popular hits with the great jazz divas’ The Edinburgh List 2010
