Saturday - SuperGirly Pop Rival with Ana Mitsikas

A comedy musical evening. SuperGirly Pop Rival is an all-singing, all glamour laugh fest that skewers tabloid-shifting celebs and pop singers.

Join SuperGirly - an adorably insane character who secretly just wants to be a shallow-hearted celeb, and her personal man-slave Bradley Cooper in a night full of music and comedy that will have you screaming, laughing and wincing all at the same time.

They present a witty and caustic take on the songs of some very famous celebrities including Lourde, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears to name a few.

Thursday, March 19 - Mamma Mia The Concert

Visually pleasing! Artistically clever! Vocally exciting! Celebrating 15 years of touring, Australia's own Ten Sopranos bring to audiences a masterful and stimulating performance of the ABBA repertoire in a memorable concert which includes new vocal and symphonic harmonies.

Theatre Royal, Castlemaine

Wednesday - The Blind Boys Of Alabama

The Blind Boys of Alabama are recognised worldwide as living legends of gospel music. Winners of five Grammy Awards, they've attained the highest levels of achievement in 70-plus year run.

The band is known for crossing multiple musical boundaries with interpretations and collaborations - everything from traditional gospel favorites to contemporary spiritual material by songwriters such as Eric Clapton, Prince and Tom Waits.

They have appeared on recordings with artists including Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Aaron Neville, Susan Tedeschi, Ben Harper, Patty Griffin and Taj Mahal.

Guildford Family Hotel

Friday - The Cartwheels

Contemporary country and country influenced material. And there's always a surprise or two at every gig.

The new self-titled album is a gem, a lovely range of classic country material played tastefully and with a respect for the traditions of the genre. These guys should know, they've played together now for well over twenty years, not afraid to wear their heart on their sleeve.

There are some lovely Australian references to places like Koondrook on the Murray, with tales of heartbreak, regret and joy. Recorded jointly in Nashville and at Richard Pleasance's studio locally, the album features an array of guest musicians, as well as the core family band. Try to catch them at this venue - a perfect fit.
