Rocket Man is a unique and entertaining salute to Sir Elton John, one of the most iconic popular music figures of the 20th and 21st centuries. The show covers Elton’s remarkable career from his first hit song through the disco era to his music for the Disney film ‘The Lion King’. You’ll also hear intriguing and often hilarious tales about Elton’s life and the stories behind the songs. Rocket Man stars classically trained musician Brenton Edgecombe. Brenton learned his first Elton John song at the age of nine while also studying the violin. He has played violin with several of this country’s professional orchestras and once performed as Elton John backed by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. He has often been mistaken for Elton John in airports, and once escaped a customs inspection on the strength of his ‘fake celebrity’ status. Brenton’s double edged career in both classical and pop music led to the formation of the double-act String Fever with his wife Jacqui, who also features strongly in ‘Rocket Man’ on cello, keyboards, backing vocals and percussion!

Othello - Gladstone

4 October 2016
A violent exploration of the thin line that separates love and jealousy, Othello is a relentless journey of vicious passion. A warrior on the fields of war, felled by the sharpness of whispered words, Othello is a man swept up in desire, quickly turned to murderous rage when he is betrayed by his military brother-in-arms, the cynically destructive Iago. One of William Shakespeare’s most famous and passionate tragedies, Othello will be directed by Artistic Director Peter Evans, in a gripping production that will touch audiences to their core, as envy is a weapon wielded with brazen savagery, and the complex contradictory nature of humanity is tested. Starring Ray Chong Nee as Othello (Bell Shakespeare’s The Dream and MTC’s I Call My Brothers) and Yalin Ozucelik (Bell Shakespeare’s Henry IV and STC’s Cyrano de Bergerac) as Iago in one of Shakespeare’s most captivating and devastating pairings, this astonishing epic tragedy will rage with jealousy on stages across Australia in Bell Shakespeare’s 2016 National Tour.
