Forget ‘Keep Calm’ these performers are here to Carry On!

By Ivy Ambrosia - 8 March 2013 8

Press your uniform and polish your aviators! It is time for a morale-boosting concert Pin-Up style!

Mondayitis Cabaret are gearing up for their second show of 2013. ‘Pin-Ups on Parade’.  This morale-boosting concert will have you preparing to tackle the western front, solo, in sequins.

Captain Spitfire is the commanding officer in charge of the this May Day concert; This dashing flyboy brings a fresh new pencil moustache to the burlesque stage. When not hunting Messerschmitts in the sky, he is victory rolling his way into ladies’ hearts with his gentlemanly physique and rakish, old world charm.

On May 13th at The Abbey Function Centre in Nicholls ‘Pin-Ups on Parade’ will feature a variety of local Canberra performers from professionals to nervous amateurs.

This show sees amazing vocal trio The Stilettos donating two sets.  This trio wow audiences wherever they go with their amazing voices and slick choreography.  Local guitarist, humourist and song writer Jordan Best is also taking the stage with a guitar that may not kill fascists, but certainly gives them a bloody nose.

Burlesque bombshell Deb Delicious will be tearing up the stage alongside the aptly named (for this show at least) Betty Bomber who is rolling up her sleeves with a tap dancing tribute to WW2 icon Rosie the Riveter.

For something a little different strong woman Penelope Asterisk returns to the stage and this time she has help.

As always Mondayitis Cabaret is raising money for the ACT Domestic Violence Crisis Service and the fantastic work they do in the region.  All funds raised by ‘Pin-Ups on Parade’ go to the YPOP program; this is an early intervention therapeutic support program for children and their families who have escaped domestic violence. The funds used will go towards providing therapeutic activities for the children as well as food, transport, clothing and other means of financial assistance that will assist the families to overcome the impact of the experiences they have had living with domestic violence and help them reconnect with their community and rebuild their lives.

Additional donations of art and craft supplies, children games or sporting equipment will be gratefully accepted and passed on to ACT DVCS to support the work of the YPOP program!
Have a dig in your cupboards and see what you have!

All Mondayitis Cabaret events are generously supported by The Abbey Function centre and Elite Sound and Lighting.

‘Pin-Ups on Parade’ is also supported by CaptaVitae Photography and Gig Pigs Photography.

Tickets are $10 + booking fee through Eventopia and are $15 at the door.  The door staff will also be accepting donations to the ACT Domestic Violence Crisis service on the night.

Advance tickets are available through Eventopia at http://www.eventopia.co/1160241-Pin-Ups-on-Parade-tickets/Pin-Ups-on-Parade-Canberra-The-Abbey-Function-Centre-May-13-2013.html

I can remember watching this is black and white in 1513.

Poetix, you make me feel young again! I thort I was the only one still living who had ever watched the Banana Splits…

“Fleagle, Beagle, Drooper and Snork..”

For those who weren’t there at the time, well, you had to be there and if you weren’t you’ll never get it. The greatest kids show ever made.

I assumed by your moniker that you were an aficionado of the Gaul!

Completely off topic I know ,butl HR was certainly Black and White in my house (1971 -72 maybe?). But so was everything else. I think we got our first colour telly in 1980 in time for the Olympics.

Witchy-poo stilled scared me even in B/W.

Ah…you tell the kids today and they wouldn’t believe you!

For the first couple of seconds I thought it was the Marlboro Man and that his horse was missing and he was late for the Mardi Gras. Then it got all nautical…

I found this quite straightforward:

Ah, but your wordsmithing, elocution, and comprehension skills are much higher than ours!

I put that down to the fact that your youth was well-spent reading the works of René Goscinny whereas I wasted my time with Hergé.

I found this quite straightforward: Caberet, Nicholls, May 13th. Dancing and music and a strong woman raising money and collecting art materials for victims of domestic violence.

Penelope Asterisk is a great name!

What the hell is being promoted here? Does this advert come in plain English?

If you don’t understand this press release then you are obviously not the type of person they want attending anyway.

NOTE: I do not understand it either.
