The ABC mini-series The Secret River, adapted from Kate Grenville’s acclaimed novel, will be shown at 8:30pm, Sunday 14th June and Sunday 21st June, on ABC.

This is your chance to see Tim, as Northern Irish ex-convict Smasher Sullivan.

Directed by Daina Reid, the series, which will air on ABC in two 90 minute episodes, stars British actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen as William Thornhill, a convict, and Sarah Snook as Sal, his free settler wife, who are transported to the new colony of New South Wales in 1805. Tim is amongst a stellar cast which also includes: Lachy Hulme, Genevieve Lemon and Trevor Jamieson.

The Secret River was shot in locations across Victoria and on The Hawkesbury River, north of Sydney, last year. If you’ve not seen it already, then take a peek at the trailer to fire up your anticipation:

Lucky folk of Seattle, Tim’s coming to play for you!

Friday, 12th, June 2015.
8pm PDT
The Moore Theatre
Seattle, WA

Tickets will be available online here at 10am PDT today, 15th May, 2015.

This will be a show featuring your vintage satirical lyrical favourites and just maybe a song or two from one of his musicals Matilda (already on in the West End and on Broadway, soon to open in Sydney and about to tour the US) and Groundhog Day (opening in London’s West End, 2016 and then heading to Broadway in 2017).

Tim only performs live occasionally, at the moment, so tickets for this are likely to fly, so be sure to snap them up quickly!

matilda-2013

The four young actresses who are excited to share the title role in the Australian Premiere Season of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Matilda The Musical were announced today. They are (in alphabetical order) Molly Barwick, Sasha Rose, Georgia Taplin and Bella Thomas.

Matilda The Musical, commences performances from July 28th, 2015, at the Sydney Lyric Theatre with tickets currently on sale via the Matilda The Musical website for performances through to October 25th.

When news first broke that Matilda was joyfully swinging over to Australia, Tim said: “Working on Matilda has been one of the greatest thrills of my life, and I’ve been aching to let her loose on audiences at home. Most of us grew up reading Dahl – the Australian sense of humour gels so well with his dark, iconoclastic tone. The last time a musical I helped write opened in Sydney, the actors almost outnumbered the audience, the theatre leaked, and my drummer was a bass player. If Matilda’s arrival is half as fun as that was, it’ll be a hoot.

All four of Sydney’s Matildas will be making their professional musical theatre debut.
