Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Pop Meets Opera At The PEC

A group of talented musicians are bringing their unique flavour of music to the Proserpine Entertainment Centre later this month with their ‘Do We Need Another Hero’ show.

A joyful celebration of songs about bravery and heroism, the show features a variety of music genres from pop to opera, country to classical.

This live musical tribute will encompass chart-topping anthems and unique mashups that will have you dancing in your seat.

Timeless hits about bravery and heroism from artists like The Beatles, David Bowie, John Farnham and more, intertwine with opera classics from composers like Beethoven and Bizet to provide the soundtrack for our story as we search for what it means to be a hero.

Exploring the musical archives, the audience will discover that not all heroes wear capes.

From the creative minds behind Are You Lonesome Tonight and Lady Sings the Maroons, this new musical showcases Queensland’s finest talent including Marcus Corowa, Luke Volker, Jason Barry-Smith, Ruby Clark and Shikara Ringdahl.

Sing along with these artists as they take songs you know and love and weave them into a story for the whole family.

Do We Need Another Hero? believes that each person possesses a unique superpower, and grand acts of courage need not always make headlines.

This show will delight and encourage you to reflect on the idea that everyone can be a hero, if only for a day.
