Tyalgum Hall

Fresh from her London triumphs in the new hit musical play “Through the Mill” about the life and times of Judy Garland, acclaimed Australian music theatre performer and actor Belinda Wollaston returns briefly to Australia for a month in March, before returning to London for another season of the hit play on Garland’s life.

For one night only, Belinda will present at the Hayes Theatre on Sunday March 19th at 7 30pm, a cabaret show based around the songs of Judy Gaeland. Belinda will tell stories of the show, stories of the remarkable Garland and how the show has affected her life in an intimate stripped back cabaret setting.
A recent London review of Belinda’s work summed it up in saying…
“I’d die happy if I could press Belinda Wollaston’s voice to brand new vinyl, lie back in an empty room, and play it loudly on a loop for the rest of my life”…

Under the musical direction of Helpmann Award nominee Andrew Worboys and featuring special guest Shaun Rennie, this is set to be one of the highlights of the Tyalgum events calender for 2017.

Belinda is currently nominated for Broadway World’s Best Lead Actress in a Musical. Previously, Belinda appeared at the Union Theatre in “The Spitfire Grill”, which won her the Craig Dodd Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Before leaving for London, Belinda has a strong and exciting music theatre career in Australia performing leads in shows such as “Titanic”, “Summer Rain’(STC) , “Mame’;(TPC), :Respect”, “Mamma Mia” and “Shane Warne the Musical”.

This one night only performance is a rare chance to see Belinda perform in her own country, before returning to further engagements in London.

Pre-show dinner @ Flutterbies Cafe from 6pm.
Doors open at Tyalgum Hall 7:30 for 8:00pm start.
