The Winner Is...

The Drum Theatre’s popular Encore program will get music lovers moving with an exciting new program for Season 1 in 2024.

Do you remember watching Molly Meldrum introduce the hottest music acts every Sunday night?

Join us for The Songs of Countdown, which combines all the classic hits from the show with laugh-out-loud observations and takes on the era. Comedy legend George Kapiniaris and 80s music queen Tottie Goldsmith are joined by a backing band as they take a hilarious trip back in time.

Let the musical memories continue when Ian Stenlake and Michelle Fitzmaurice share Academy Award winning songs from the past 80 years. The Winner Is… shares iconic songs that have lit up our silver screens, from 1939’s Over the Rainbow to 1995’s Can You Feel the Love Tonight.

Celebrate the Spirit of Anzac and salute our Anzacs and Vietnam Veterans with hit songs and stories from WWII and the Vietnam War. The stunning cast is led by narrator Chris McKenna, tenor Roy Best and international soprano Alison Jones, backed by William Schmidt on the piano.

Explore the avenues and boulevards of Paris and discover the romantic sounds of some of the most famous French chansons of all time. Paris in Love – An International French Variety Concert will bring to the Drum the enchanting spirit of a real Parisian party.

Enjoy three decades of McCartney magic at Wingspan, Celebrating the Songs of Paul McCartney. Wingspan delivers McCartney’s hits from his early Beatles’ days, through his early solo albums and the formation of Wings.

This program will have audiences shouting ‘encore’ at Dandenong’s iconic Drum Theatre in 2024.
