What could be more engaging than a 58 piece Symphony orchestra playing your favourite musical theatre tunes? Add the mellow sounds, and energetic moves of Rob "Millsy" Mills with the best Australia has to offer in the next wave of musical stars, and you have a night to remember.
The incredibly talented students from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University Performing Arts join Queensland Pops Orchestra for the 4th year. Their polished performances have won over larger audiences each year.
Rob Mills first came to the nation's attention in 2003 as a finalist on the first series of Australian Idol. In 2008, he won the coveted lead male role of Fiyero in the hugely successful production of Wicked and continued the part when it toured around Australia. He has since starred in many popular large scale musical theatre productions and currently appears in the television show Neighbours.
Star of stage and screen Rob will perform songs from Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Misérables, Grease and Wicked.
There's something endlessly endearing about many hit songs from classic Broadway and West End musicals. A great tune from a Broadway musical has a unique quality that differentiates it from any other pop song.
These timeless songs are best seen and heard from a live performance stage, as they bring back that magic moment when you first witnessed the song live. Even if you never got to experience the stage musical, these songs have so much melody and presence they can still carry you away.
Producer Cameron Mackintosh's four shows (Cats, Les Misérables, The Phantom of The Opera and Miss Saigon) have run on Broadway for more than 60 years in total. Internationally, they have made more money than the movies Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and Titanic put together. Through the mediums of sheet music, radio, movies, home entertainment and age-old word-of-mouth, the wonder of musical theatre has enchanted audiences from every corner of the globe. That's Show Business!
