Epiphanies

Epiphanies unites stars from the Australian production of ​Les Misérables​ in a common cause. That of raising money for research into mental illness which impedes the lives of many young people from all walks of life, including those from the entertainment industry.

A three hour concert with an array of well known songs from some of the greatest musicals ever will have the audience soaring into the realms of creative visualisation through the power of music and song. Rob McDougall, Kerrie Anne Greenland and Daniel Belle along with other members from the Les Miserables cast will be backed by a stunning 18-piece orchestra. As well as songs from Les Mis, pieces from Funny Girl, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, The Secret Garden, Anastasia, and Chess will also take centre stage.

Daniel Belle, fresh from playing Jean Valjean’ in the Christchurch production of Les Miserables said,

“The show came together through us three being able to sing together. You know that when you have quality musicians the show will work. We wanted a show that would be top notch and deliberately chose songs that were heavy hitters for an impactful musical treat. Jean Valjean, a character driven by good is compelling due to the physical strength necessary given the set of extraordinary circumstances in which he finds himself.”

In fact many characters in musicals can be quite complex and must wade through life’s uncertainties but they get to sing out loud and audiences love them for it.

Money raised goes to The Australian Rotary Health’s research grant program which evaluates treatments for young sufferers of mental illness.
