Kinky Boots Supports BeyondBlue with a Celebration of Women in Pop!
For One Night Only | Sunday 18th June
The Australian cast of Cyndi Lauper’s hilarious and heart-warming new musical Kinky Boots will perform a charity concert at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre on Sunday 18 June to raise money for beyondblue.
Created and performed by the cast of Kinky Boots, BeyondKinky is a one-off opportunity for Sydneysiders to see this supremely talented company pay homage to the divas of pop in their own unique ‘Kinky’ way.
The concert will feature music from pop’s iconic women including Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, The Spice Girls, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion and many more.
Hosted by Australian comedy veteran and Kinky Boots cast member Glenn Butcher, the show will feature some of the most beloved and well-known hits from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond, with performances from principals Callum Francis, Toby Francis, Sophie Wright, Teagan Wouters, Joe Kosky and the incredible ensemble.
BeyondKinky follows the success of Beyond Misérables, also produced by the Michael Cassel Group during its run of Les Misérables, which raised $90,000 in support of charity partner, beyondblue.
In partnership with Kinky Boots, beyondblue created the ‘Just Be’ campaign to help share the musical’s central message of diversity and acceptance with the wider community.
beyondblue CEO Georgie Harman said the amazing cast and BeyondKinky will raise vital funds to contribute to beyondblue’s Support Service; “Each month, more than 13,000 Australians seek free and confidential help from our Support Service. Many of those people are seeking support because they experience depression, anxiety or are at risk of suicide. Our Support Service’s mental health professionals provide people with counselling, information and referrals for ongoing support that helps improve and save lives.”
Mental health professionals are available at the beyondblue Support Service via phone 24/7 on 1300 22 4636 or via beyondblue.org.au/get-support for web chat 3pm to midnight (AEST) or email responses (within 24 hours).
