2015 Tony Awards Performances

2015 TONY AWARD PERFORMANCES

Tony season has come and gone, so below I have posted the performances from this years show. The 2 stand out performances this year in my opinion were SOMETHING ROTTEN! and FUN HOME.

Something Rotten! set in 1595 follows 2 brothers trying to make it in the theatre world, as they compete with their contemporary… William Shakespeare. The Tony performance showcases a classic broadway style with a modern “meta-self aware” approach.

Fun Home is based on a 2006 graphic novel memoir of the same name. Broadways first lesbian protagonist character attempts to unfurl the mysteries surrounding her fathers life. Young actress Sydney Lucas is captivating as the young Alison Bechdel and her performance caught me off guard. The simple melody and staging coupled with the powerful message and delivery has seen me watch this many times.

President Message May 2015

Hello and Welcome to the all new RCMS website!!

I would first, like to acknowledge the hard work put in by Glen Barrow to update our site and bring the site into the modern and exciting time of our society and into the future.

I would also like to congratulate the amazing cast and crew from the show “Gershwin: A Musical Journey”. As the Musical Director and Arranger for this show, it was amazing to see the music come alive on the Mildura Arts Centre stage and those in attendance truly felt like that they were joining us on that journey. Congratulations to the cast and also to Pam Bradley for all of her hard work in bringing it all together for the stage.

Sadly for us, One of our major sponsors for this and other shows, Win Television, has closed its bureau in Mildura as of this week. I would like to personally thank them for the coverage that you have provided in the arts in this region for well over half a century. Your effort to bring the local news that matters will be missed but I know greater things await all of you.

The Society has a long history and one which has provided a wide and varied selection of shows to be performed to audiences throughout our Mallee region.

This is set to continue as we launch into the classic “My Fair Lady”. This show is a true classic!!! I wish Kelly Morrison and his team the best as they tackle this wonderful production and hope to see as many people as possible come and support the show.
