ROB MILLS is “Surprisingly Good”

Hey team,

Thanks so much to everyone who has come to see my little show… I have had an incredible time putting it together and performing it all over the country. There are still a few more dates later this year, so don’t fret. Perth and Adelaide I’m trying to get to you too. Geelong you are next… actually this very weekend. I’m double billed with the very talented John O’Hara (I can’t wait to see his show DEDICATIONS). http://GPAC.org.au/WNTR for details.

I will upload some video soon but here are some of the reviews…

“Mills stunned the audience with his great vocals and superb acting, and charmed us with his open, funny and easy-going nature. An unsurprisingly well written, well directed and wonderfully performed show, Rob Mills is most definitely, and expectedly far better than ‘good’.” – Bec Caton, Aussie Theatre

“He’s a performer with a brilliant voice - it has power, richness and flexibility, charisma and passion, even a talent for vocal caricature” – Cameron Woodhead, SMH

Rob Mills Is…Surprisingly Good. It’s a humble, slightly bemused premise on which to base a show (they’re the words of critics of course), and it works. Mills is sensational, surprising East Coast audiences with his self-deprecating humour, natural musical ability and charisma. Anyone who has seen Mills in a musical theatre production, as Jamie (The Last Five Years), Fiyero (Wicked), Warner (Legally Blonde) or Danny (Grease), won’t be nearly as surprised as the rest. Again, this time within the challenging realm of cabaret, Mills shows his mettle. – Xanthe Coward, XS Entertainment

Pretty chuffed to be honest… I have learnt so much about myself throughout the process and Big thanks goes to Nat Garonzi, Tyran Parke and Andrew Worboys for helping me tell my story… I love doing this show… and couldn’t have done it without them.

In other news I have taken on the role of Australian Master’s Games Ambassador for 2015.

The Australian Masters Games is a biennial sporting event that is regarded as one of the premier and largest participation sporting events on the Australian sporting landscape. In 2015 the 15th edition of the Games will be hosted in Adelaide, South Australia.

It is expected over 10,000 participants will compete across approximately 60 different sports from 3rd – 10th October.

Check out http://www.australianmastersgames.com/ for more details and to register. I have signed up for the Mixed Netball on the Saturday 3rd October. Yes I know that it is Grand Final day. I can still cheer loudly for my Hawks from Adelaide… if we make it.

Till soon…

Rob

PS I’ll be closing the Ballarat Cabaret Festival on 11th October. And at the Clink Theatre Port Douglas 24th and 25th October. Check the EVENT tab for more details…
