Tim Draxl, Tyalgum Hall, Saturday

Direct from a season at the Sydney Opera House, award-winning Australian singer/actor Tim Draxl will star in an all-new cabaret show at Tyalgum Village Hall. Tim Draxl: Live in Tyalgum will feature great standards and Tim’s personal musical influences drawn from the golden era of the great American songbook.

Dividing his time between a flourishing film career in Los Angeles and his touring cabaret shows in Australia, Tim Draxl is probably best known to audiences for his most recent starring role alongside Olivia Newton-John in this year’s Australian-British comedy hit, A Few Best Men.

His film credits also include Dirty Deeds with Bryan Brown, Swimming Upstream with Geoffrey Rush and guest roles in ABC-TV’s critically acclaimed series, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.

And in a marked contrast, just one week prior to his Tyalgum show, Tim will be treading the boards at the Sydney Opera House performing a musical biography of 1950s jazz legend Chet Baker.

Tim will be accompanied on the Tyalgum stage by pianist Michael Tyack, fresh from his two-year stint as musical director of the Australian production of Mary Poppins, for which he won the 2011 Helpmann Award for Best Musical Direction.


See Tim this Saturday at the Tyalgum Hall. For bookings, phone 02 6679 3787.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Aged Care Fail

Our aged care system is broken. We didn’t need a Royal Commission to tell us that many of our old people have been abused by the system that is supposed to care for them. But now we have hard evidence that we are failing our elders. Some of the data that has been released is shocking. One in five residents have experienced sexual or physical abuse.
