Presented by Darwin High School, SLIDE and SRA Information Technology is the dance production BRAVE, which will show at the Darwin High School Amphitheatre tonight and tomorrow from 7pm. The performance tackles the issue of bullying which touches virtually all teenagers in one form or another. Darwin High School Performance Arts teacher Sarah Calver said the idea to address bullying was that of the cast, made up predominantly of DHS students. Originally, we had thought about the idea of body beautiful and dealing with body image, but it became quite apparent that bullying was a more critical issue, she said. Ms Calver said todays youth were susceptible to a far greater range of abuse because of technology. But she said the destructive effects of the behaviour had remained the same. Victims can die or they may not, but they all suffer, she said. Ms Calver said highlighting the need for ramifications to those responsible was of great importance. There needs to be consequences and bullying can often be ignored, she said. We want to make people aware that if you think that bullying doesnt actually exist, well it does. Through the performance Ms Calver said she hoped a strong message was delivered. Were hoping it makes people stop and think, that it actually makes them think about what theyve said or even done that day, she said. The story centres on a beautiful and self-assured girl named Willow, who grows up with friends Sam and Maggie. When they move into their latter teens, peer group pressure alters the bonds. BRAVE is a follow-up to the successful 2011 production TIME, which addressed drink driving and its damaging consequences. BRAVE, at Darwin High School Amphitheatre, tonight and tomorrow from 7pm. Tickets: $10/$30 family. For bookings ring 8999 1254 or email sarah calver@ntschool.net Musical delights to fill the night air By CAINE EDWARDS ONE of the luxuries of the Top Ends Dry season is the many outdoor music events, and this weekend some musical theatre favourites will fill the air. Tonight and tomorrow at Charles Darwin Universitys Soundshell, the Darwin Symphony Orchestra and Darwin Chorale present Hats off to Broadway. Award-winning guest conductor Michael Loughlin has an impressive resume, with conducting experience in the UK and the Czech Republic. After spending many years conducting choirs and orchestras in Melbourne, Loughlin relocated with his wife Fiona Wake to Darwin in 2008. He said what Darwin lacked in size it made up for in heart and community. The music scene is small but its enthusiastic and theres lots going on here, he said. He has won awards as musical director for shows such as West Side Story and Les Miserables, but Loughlin said he enjoys the challenge of operating out of a considerably smaller locale. But we manage to put together programs that are satisfying for all the musos and the singers, and that the audiences like, he said. Hats off to Broadway features a selection of numbers from favourites, including Annie, Phantom of the Opera and My Fair Lady. And solo performances from musical theatre star Michael Cormick, Fiona Wake and former NT administrator Tom Pauling are sure to be highlights. Were encouraging people to bring along their picnic and a bottle of wine or two, and just sit there and enjoy the warm night and music, Loughlin said.

In October last year, Cold Chisel proved to Darwin that not only were they not done, but there was in fact yet another chapter to be written in the story. The bands recordbreaking Light the Nitro Tour sold almost 300,000 tickets more than Powderfinger and John Farnhams final tours. On April 12 the book Cold Chisel: Wild Colonial Boys was released. It is a definitive anthology of the life of arguably Australias most influential band. Written by Michael Lawrence, the 340-page hardcover delves into the bands history in unprecedented detail. No stone is left unturned in the book, which is being called the most extensive ever published on an Australian act. Cold Chisel: Wild Colonial Boys is meticulously compiled and includes numerous interviews with band members, record company executives and producers. The bands manager, Rod Willis, has labelled the book the bible on Cold Chisel.
