|As you all know, we have been rehearsing not only for the November show, but for a corporate event on the 31st August for a national Kiwanis conference.
To ensure that we "do the show proud" we feel that we need to run an extra rehearsal on Wed 29th and so we need to cancel the show run that was planned for that night.
I apologise for the inconvenience but know you will understand that it is important that the Kiwanis event is professional and well rehearsed. I thank you all for you support and look forward to seeing you on Sunday at 5:30 for an exciting rehearsal.

|Jorja Bromley and her friend, Ebony are quite a talented duo. The pair, who are cast members of Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something, enjoy their art so much that they're getting together and busking for the weather-beaten shoppers at the Winter Market in Shepparton on August 24th.
We caught up with Jorja to see how the busking preparations were going...
Ebony and I are both 11 years old, we both attend at the Shepparton East Primary School.
We have been singing together for about 2 years and we sing songs from all ages that are catchy and known from radio play.
We will be located at the front of EB games in the mall and will be there from 9 am onwards.
I think people should come and see us at the winter market because we are local young talent, entertaining and some say our voices compliment each other when we sing together.
Our aim this bush market is to donate a percentage of moneys to the Children's Ward at the Shepparton Hospital in the way of toys, DVDs or what is requested by the ward.
Also we hope to set up a time that we can go and perform for them, which we hope can bring a smile to their faces.
If you want to be entertained all day long on Friday August 24, head down to EB Games in the mall and see Jorja and Ebony sing their hearts out for a good cause.

|She's gone from Avril Lavigne to Lucinda. Popular STAG-er, Jamie Mazzochi has scored the title role in Turaton Music Company's 2007 theatre restaurant, Lucinda.
The story follows the life of...yup, you guessed it, Lucinda. Lucinda discovers on her 18th birthday that the couple she has called 'Mother' and 'Father' her whole life are in fact her foster parents. A Lady grieves for the daughter she gave up 18 years ago - Could there be a connection? There's a young man in love and a blackmailing villain who plots to marry the same girl for her money. The unfolding drama also includes a sudden death and a planned murder.
The show is directed by STAG member Andrew Morom and musically directed by STAG Life Member, Geoff Cabble.
If that's not enough, you'll also be able to see Mick Hosa as a placard girl (scary, but fun) as well as other STAG-ers, Rod Mauger, Lyndal Lancaster, Cyndie Archer, Marilyn Felini, Priscilla Collins and Ros Hosa.
Alsongside Jamie is her offstage love interest, Brenton Norman, who plays the archetypal gay policeman and funky Eastbank Food pin-up boy, Pat Robertson as her onstage love interest, Reginald Rightworthy.
Sounds like a show that's not to be missed!
Lucinda will be staged as a travelling show, with performances in Shepparton and surrounding districts from November 16 - 25.
More details as they come to hand.

Peace Train sounding louder, everyone jump on the Peace Train. Yes, the song is in the show, Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something but it's not the song they are rehearsing!
Here, both the teenager's and children's chorus rehearse the Michael Jackson song, All I Wanna Say (Is They Don't Really Care About Us) in preparation for the high energy, super charged production to hit the stage in early November at the Eastbank Centre in Shepparton.
Tickets for Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something go on sale to the public from 10AM on Friday August 31 at Riverlinks Box Office. Tickets are $37 Adult, $33 Concession and $28 Student. Nibbles will be provided at the show and drinks will be available at bar prices. Also, don't forget to ask Riverlinks when you book about the delicious pre-show meals from EastbankFood when you book.
But be sure to organise your tickets and money now as these hot, hot tickets are expected to sell-out very quickly, so there's no time to wait around as it may just be too late!

|Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something is STAG's next end of year revue that will rock the socks off everyone who attends. Bookings open on 31st August for this fabulous rock revue which will be presented at the Eastbank Centre on 1,2,3,8,9,10 of November at 7:30pm. The show will have you remembering the moments in time, the legends, and of course the songs that were only the beginning; that started something - be it a fad, trend or an era that will live on for years to come.
The show will consist of three entertainment packed acts full of non stop songs that will have the crowds reminiscing and singing along.
Act One will transcend time and float in and out of eras as we take a look at songs that spoke of love, life and fun and will end with a spectacular medley of songs by our junior members. You'll be treated so songs such as The Things We Do For Love, Children Of The Revolution, I Love Rock And Roll and Brick In The Wall - to name a few.
You'll get a little break, time for a drink and some nibbles and Act Two will take off and send you on a trip with wild women, rock chicks, and women of substance who include Bette Midler, Aretha Franklin and Pink. You'll also hear the great protest songs: songs like Turn Turn Turn and My Generation that are still relevant today and you hear a tribute to the fabulous Glam band, Sweet.
And as if that isn't enough, after another short refreshment break, Act Three will present the icons that have contributed to the shaping of the music industry - legends such as Billy Idol, David Bowie, Tina Turner, Madonna, The Bee Gees and of course The Beatles and many more with songs such as White Wedding, Nutbush City Limits, Golden Years and so on.
Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something will certainly hit the stage with a blast. Directed by Liz Zito, musically directed by Carmen Allemand, with Maureen Collins debuting as Production Manager and Sue Meeking as Assistant Director, Only The Beginning - Songs That Started Something will look at performers that began crazes in music and fashion and songs that "struck a chord" in their times. Tributes to classic rock chicks, the Glam look, the protest era, the icons, and much much more will combine to make a jam-packed program of entertainment for you to enjoy. The show is choreographed by Tanya Bowen, Kyla McGregor, Sam Chambers and Dani Goudie and each of them will bring a certain style and pizazz to the show with great dance numbers included.
So don't delay - get those tickets booked nice and early. Rumour has it that people will once again be lining up for tickets to this rock spectacular. It's almost becoming a tradition...how exciting!!!
