The Arts may have been knocked down, but we haven’t been knocked out. Lights Up On The Arts: Home Delivery! is a special and important concert created by James Cutler and Joshua Robson Productions, which serves as a way to shine a light on our industry and support performers whose livelihoods have been impacted by the COVID-19 Arts shutdown.
Over an incredible evening, we will take a live audience into the living rooms of performers from shows such as Shrek The Musical Australia, School of Rock the Musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Australia, Merrily We Roll Along (Luckiest Productions), Come From Away Australia, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, 9 to 5 the Musical Australia and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, to name a few…
“We have had express permission from Mr Stephen Schwartz to have access to his catalogue of music,” said James Cutler and Joshua Robson. “Stephen has an incredible and rich collection of songs that taps into so many important themes that will create the through-line of our concert: connection, togetherness, unity, a second chance, finding oneself, the joys of a simple life, and hope.”
“It is our hope that the optimistic and uplifting nature of his music, together with our program, will remind Australia and beyond that the Arts matter, that we are a source of joy in the world, and, failing all else, the Arts will sustain our world even through the toughest of situations. We think that’s worth celebrating!”
Lights Up On The Arts: Home Delivery! takes place on Monday 4 May 2020 on Facebook live. For more information, visit: www.facebook.com/joshuarobsonproductions for details.
