Bibs and Bobs

Revisited the Melbourne suburb of Prahran for dinner and as usual was taken by the many changes.
A peaceful walk along St. Kilda Beach

Naughty snaps from the audience during our curtain call.
Felicia understudy Mitchell Fistrovich went on last week and smashed it!

And our swing Patrick Whitbread (R, pictured with Luke Jarvis) went on in Mitchell's track.
Followed closely by our female swings Michelle Barr and Shannen Alyce Quan
And finally Xander Ellis
Spotted in Melbourne CBD...
Now available in Thin and Christian?

Well, if it's on postcards it MUST be true!!
The highest compliment I've ever been paid.

Founded in 2000, Docklands has grown dramatically since I was last in Melbourne ten years ago. Situated behind Spencer Street railway station this reclaimed land now boasts high rises, restaurants , a sports stadium, the channel 7 tv studios and a giant ferris wheel!

This is public seating!


Not a huge achievement in the grand scheme of things but perhaps a record for an Australian musical.
Everyone was very kind and supportive, there were lovely tributes on social media from current cast members...

and a fabulous video with messages from cast members from past productions, including original cast member Ben Lewis, the current PHANTOM in the West End, who wore his Phantom party mask.

A highlight was the current cast singing new lyrics to "Macarthur Park" penned by our director Simon Phillips.
And at the curtain call I was presented with flowers from our wonderful producer Michael Cassel! So, a lovely occasion all round.
