#SHe is the latest cabaret production by Promise Adelaide and is a celebration of women through song and dance, featuring a range of songs from different genres and eras. The event is raising funds for White Ribbon, working to end men's violence against women and girls. Each Promise show introduces new cast members as well as some that have greater experience who act as mentors and provide inspiration.

They specialise in 'Glee' style song and dance numbers, to showcase these triple threats, as well as providing each cast member with the opportunity to sing solo. If their past shows are anything to go by, this will be a thoroughly entertaining evening and lucrative for the chosen charity. Cancer Council, Heart Foundation and BeyondBlue have been the fortunate beneficiaries of nearly $10,000 raised by Ben and his young casts since its inception 2 years ago.

In addition, over 120 young people aged 10 -21 have gained vital performance or production experience in the charity spectaculars and the first Promise season of Musical Moments in the Adelaide Fringe earlier this year.

Ben's efforts have not gone unrecognised and he was recently awarded a Minister of Education and Child Development Award for his achievements. He has also been nominated by Newscorp for a Pride of Australia Medal. Yet he remains modest in his outlook. "I couldn't have done any of this on my own. I have a wonderfully supportive family, support from professionals like Craig Williams of Mosaic Audio Visual and the many Adelaide artists who have guided me and acted as speakers in our shows. Also the cast and production teams put in a huge amount of time and energy, without any payment, to make these shows a success. It really is a team effort."

#SHe will also feature guest speaker, 2016 Young South Australian of The Year, Arman Abrahimzadeh. Arman was raised in Iran and migrated to Australia with his immediate family in 1997, at the age of 10. In March 2010, Arman's mother Zahra was murdered by his abusive father at the Adelaide Convention Centre in front of 300 people. In 2013, after the criminal trial and sentencing, Arman became a White Ribbon Ambassador, and now passionately advocates for better policies, procedures and legislation to protect women and their children.
