It follows in the footsteps of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and nurses throughout the campaign, including a commemoration of Australia’s century of service.

 

Driven by artefacts from the Australian War Memorial, the Experience also integrates interactive environments, special effects and more to tell Australia’s story in new and engaging ways. The Spirit of Anzac Centenary Experience also presents students with an invaluable learning opportunity, with direct links to the Australian curriculum.

1. A Nation In The Making – a brief look at Australia from 1901 to 1914

2. War Declared – focusing on the outbreak of war and Australia’s enlistments

3. Setting Sail – join the first convoy as they set off from Western Australia

4. Training in Egypt – Australian and New Zealand soldiers train together

7. Sinai & Palestine – Australia’s involvement in desert warfare

8. The Aftermath – the effects of the First World War on Australian society

9. Lest We Forget – a memorial zone for commemoration, reflection and remembrance

Peter Rowsthorn

The Ville Resort and Casino

Ticket Prices

$39.00 per person

Show starts 8pm doors open from 7.30pm

18+ event

 

Peter Rowsthorn is a high energy, fast paced stand-up comedian one minute and a measured character actor the next. A masterful MC of corporate and private functions, Peter has been performing his slick & blistering stand up for almost two decades. In that time, Peter has been involved in some of Australia’s seminal comedy shows like The Comedy Company and The Big Gig. For the Last 10 years Peter has worked as a stand-up comedian and also as a Master of Ceremonies in the corporate market.


He understands the variability of events and makes a point of being flexible and easy to work with; making himself an organiser's dream.  Whether it's a casual lunch for clients or a formal awards presentation, Peter's done it all.

Today, however, Peter is probably best known as Brett on ABC TV’s Kath & Kim.  Most recently we have sympathised with Peter Rowsthorn as Brett - Kim's estranged husband in ABC`s Kath and Kim.  Brett is a computer geek, a bit of a pants man who is deeply in love with Kim.  Brett considers himself a Mr Average that is lucky enough to have a horn bag of a wife and he can't believe his luck at being married to her.

 

Peter first came to prominence as a stand-up comic and as a writer and performer on The Comedy Company. He is a known Australian Rules football fan and supporter of the Hawthorn Football Club and has recently appeared on television ads for the club's membership, as well as making a guest appearances in the 2006 AFL Legends Match and Community Cup.  He also appeared as Warren Cronkshonk in hospital spoof Let The Blood Run Free and recently made several appearances on the improvised comedy series Thank God You're Here and is the host of 'Can We Help?' on ABC TV.

 

A long serving comedian from 1983 as one half of the Cactus Brothers, he then moved onto the Comedy Company and has also made numerous stand up appearances on shows like ‘Hey, Hey It’s Saturday’, ‘Midday With Ray Martin’, ‘The Big Gig’, ‘Tonight Live’, ‘Australian Comedians In Concert’, ‘Denton’, ‘IMT’, ‘Something Hot Before Bed’ and ‘Recovery’.

He is one of Australia’s most experienced stand-up comics performing in just about every stand up room in the country as well as delighting numerous corporate clients. A polished and confident MC; he is also very, very funny.

Attori present their highly successful show, ‘Buble’s Way,’ featuring classic favourites re-created by the highly successful Canadian crooner, Michael Buble. ‘Buble’s Way’ presents  songs fi rst made famous by renowned artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis and Freddy Mercury as well as incorporating hits from other popular artists such as Robbie Williams. The dynamic Attori entertainers are Queensland locals who have combined to produce a high-quality cabaret act. The performers are well-known from a variety of professional and amateur theatre events. Attori performs classic and contemporary favourites in the style of Michael Buble. With slick sophistication, Attori retains the warmth and humour that made the original hits so endearing …and they have the dinner suits, the attitude and the banter to match! ‘Buble’s Way’ is a tight, professional, well choreographed, cabaret-style show that is ideal for intimate foyer functions to larger-sized theatre performances. 

 

“Attori are highly professional, entertaining and talented performers. Attori recreate the slick sophistication of the original artists, without being a predictable copy of the original. Whilst retaining the warmth and humour that made the originals so commanding, these men apply their own unique talents to the hits of yesteryear. Attori provide an unforgettable entertainment package” Justin Cowell - ARTY Productions, Director.

 

“Everybody has been telling me you guys were the highlight of the night. You couldn’t have been more perfect for our event! Thankyou so much for making our Australian awards night such a wonderful success.” Ainsley May, Training Manager, Peopleworks, Flight Centre Ltd, Brisbane QLD

 

As Attori, our endeavour is to give 150% of ourselves. Attori’s motto is, ‘Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but rather skid in sideways, totally knackered, shouting, WOW ! What a ride!’

ADRIAN BOHM PRESENTS

BILL BAILEY – LARKS IN TRANSIT

AUSTRALIAN TOUR 2016

It’s twenty years since Bill Bailey first performed on these shores, and he returns to mark this milestone with a new show.

Larks in Transit is a compendium of travellers’ tales and the general shenanigans of twenty years as a travelling comedian. With musical virtuosity, surreal tangents, and trademark intelligence, he tackles politics, philosophy, the pursuit of happiness, death metal, ringtones… and an excruciating encounter with Paul McCartney.

Two decades of life as a comic filtered through what the Daily Telegraph calls ‘the brainiest comic of his generation’.

‘virtuoso… comedy’s Mozart’ The Sunday Times.
