Swing Set: Improvised Comedy

Swing Set are Mario Hannah and Broni, one of Melbourne’s best and most experienced long-form improv comedy duos.

With many years of playing together under their belt, Mario and Broni bring a chemistry to the stage that draws audiences in as they create characters and worlds that will delight you. All done in the moment with you in the room. Being at a Swing Set show means being part of an exclusive and specific in-joke that you share in for one night only, once a fortnight.

Each show is different. Each show is funny.

The Greatest Love of All – The Whitney Houston Show

The critically acclaimed live production, The Greatest Love of All – The Whitney Houston Show, will be performed at The Athenaeum from 11th to 27th Jan.

A beautifully crafted tribute, the show will honour the talent, music and memory of one of the world’s most revered singers.

In preparation for such an anticipated show, Showtime Australia conducted over 15,000 auditions across 12 countries before selecting accomplished South African vocalist Belinda Davids who delivers the voice, charm, nuances, and even the gestures of Houston.

An undeniable talent, Davids recently won this year’s BBC ONE’s ‘Even Better than the Real Thing’ which showcases the best musical tribute acts in the UK.

Accompanying the breathtaking vocals of Davids on stage will be a six-piece live band, and dancers, with an array of stunning replica costumes and full-scale lighting and effects.

The spectacular two-hour show will take audiences on a heartfelt musical journey through the greatest hits of Houston’s 30-year career.
