Keeping The Curtain Up

On screens July 2020

With the world in lockdown during 2020, entertainment hit hard and live performances not possible, Shane hosted Keeping The Curtain Up on Saturday 18 July, an evening dedicated to musical theatre with funds being raised by the Actors Benevolent Fund of NSW to support performers and theatre workers around Australia.

Taking a look at some of the best moments from musicals produced in Australia in the previous decade or so, special guests include Lisa McCune, Lucy Durack, Alinta Chidzey and Zahra Newman as we revisit much-loved shows including Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables, Mary Poppins, Billy Elliott, My Fair Lady, The Rocky Horror Show and many more.

The Actors Benevolent Fund of NSW is welcoming donations to support actors, singers, dancers, creatives and technicians with financial assistance during this difficult time. All donations will be distributed across the Actors and Entertainers Benevolent Funds, Trusts and organisations around Australia.
