Epiphanies to raise funds to support research into mental illness

Rob McDougall, Kerrie Anne Greenland and Daniel BelleThe stars of the Australian production of Les Misérables will reunite at the Seymour Centre on Saturday 27 October to present Epiphanies – a charity concert supporting research into mental illness.

Rob McDougall, Kerrie Anne Greenland (Helpmann Award winner) and Daniel Belle (The Ten Tenors) are set to delight musical theatre lovers in a three-hour, world class concert, backed by a stunning 18-piece orchestra.

Together they will perform a dazzling array of pieces from the world’s most loved musicals including Funny Girl, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, The Secret Garden, Anastasia, Chess and Les Misérables.

Epiphanies will also feature performances with some of McDougall, Greenland and Belle’s former Les Misérables co-stars including Patrice Tipoki (Wicked), Naomi Livingston (Wicked) and Trevor Ashley (The Bodybag).

Epiphanies aims to raise funds for research into mental health. Money raised from this concert will go towards Australian Rotary Health’s research grant program, to a study aimed at evaluating the efficacy of treatments for young sufferers of mental illness. Epiphanies was previously performed in Tamworth to two sold out houses, which raised $20,000 for mental health research grants.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have some of Australia’s leading theatre artists on board for this concert,” said McDougall. “Mental illness is rampant in the entertainment industry; it’s tearing us apart. We believe very strongly that more research is needed to understand this important health issue. Come along and see a world class concert, and help us raise vital research funds!”
