Man of Many Talents, Jon English is Back

Who: Jon English
Where: Belmont 16ft Sailing Club
Author: Anne-Marie Wilcock
When: Saturday August 26, 2000

FOR five years JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR was blessed with the vocal talent of Australian musician and actor JON ENGLISH .

The rewards from that first career risk are still paying off, including four albums, an ARIA, a Logie, three consecutive Mo Awards for Entertainer of the Year and a successful stage career including roles in THE PIRATE KING, THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE and HMAS PINAFORE .

The multi-talented entertainment industry guru will perform at the Belmont 16ft Sailing Club on Saturday August 26.

ENGLISH'S latest project, BUSKERS AND ANGELS is ready to take to the stage after 10 years of preparation.

The show is the story of The Busker, a man with a mysterious past, content to forsake fame and fortune to sing on the street. He meets a talented young singer named Lee whose rapid rise to stardom is followed by the inevitable fall from grace.

The world premiere of BUSKERS AND ANGELS will be staged in Newcastle in October 2000, before the musical tours the nation.

Catch up with the energy behind BUSKERS and with English.

Tickets are on sale now for the 8.30pm Belmont gig, on 4945-0888.
