THE BEGGARS – Australian Songbook – SOLD OUT

The Beggars Australian Songbook – Celebrating SENIORS WEEK 2018 – SOLD OUT
Presented by Arts Margaret River

Join us for a night of wonderful music, dancing, socializing and nostalgia.

A musical tribute to great Australian songs and artists including The Seekers, Peter Dawson, Johnny O’Keefe, Lucky Starr, Chad Morgan, Slim Dusty, and The Beggars. You can heave away and haul your way round Cape Horn Bound for South Australia or sail the Southern Ocean hunting The Whale, go Waltzing Matilda down to the billabong and find out what really happened to that jolly swagman, do your noble duty at Suvla Bay in the Great War, go back home on the Road to Gundagai, and be a guest at the Fatal Wedding. The Beggars round out this musical journey with the tongue twisting I’ve Been Everywhere as we all sing-along with the songs from our Australian Songbook.

The Orchid and the Crow

The Orchid and the Crow is a comedy about an atheist surviving cancer by finding God in Lance Armstrong – with songs!

Daniel Tobias grew up in a Jewish-atheist household. In 2004 he found out he had stage-four testicular cancer and went searching for God. Any God. Enter Lance Armstrong, seven-times winner of the Tour de France and legendary cancer survivor. Lance Armstrong’s story gave Daniel solace and hope when he needed it. Now of course, Armstrong is a fallen angel and after Daniel’s full recovery, he wonders – how many times will he be cheated by a God? This is a story about being let down by your heroes and those who you worship -time and time and time again.

Daniel effortlessly draws us into the inspiring tale of his near-death experience in this funny, uplifting story of faith, family and survival. Part story-telling, part-theatre featuring original songs from the award-winning writers of Otto & Astrid this is an original, accessible, brilliantly clever and ultimately moving story that audiences have described as ‘life-changing’. The play deals with rarely discussed themes in an entertaining, theatrical, accessible and comical form.

WINNER: Green Room Award – Best Writing, Cabaret 2016.
WINNER: Outstanding Solo Performance – Ottawa Fringe 2015 (Canada)
WINNER: Outstanding Individual Performance – London Free Press 2015 (Canada)

★★★★ “Turns divine vengeance into comedy gold.” The Age

‘Daniel Tobias has condensed his entire life into a smart and scintillating 75-minute variety show – The Orchid and the Crow is wise, generous, and blackly funny and it’s constantly in the rim of appalling taste. If we gave stars – this would have a fistful.” The Australian
