Calling all music theatre fans - join us for Let’s Go On With The Show, an entertainment extravaganza and very special appeal supporting the Actors Benevolent Fund.
Hosted by Simon Burke AO and streamed live from the Joan Sutherland Theatre, we take a loving look at the best musicals produced in Australia including Helpmann winners Barbara and the Camp Dogs, Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, Mary Poppins, Billy Elliott, The Lion King, Matilda, Kinky Boots and Aladdin. Special guests include leading artists Ainsley Melham (Aladdin), Callum Francis (Kinky Boots), Amy Lehpamer (The Sound of Music, Beautiful) and Lara Mulcahy (Mamma Mia, Les Misérables).
While the curtain remains down, the performing arts industry faces an ongoing battle. The Actors Benevolent Fund provides financial assistance to artists and technicians in the Australian performing arts. The Sydney Opera House is proud to join forces with Live Performance Australia, the Helpmann Awards, Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance, and the commercial producing industry to support their cause.
Let’s Go On With The Show showcases excerpts from independent and major musicals performed by Australia’s talented music theatre industry. Join us for a joyous and affirming evening that will have you singing along with some of our most incredible performers.
