Luke Belle Premieres CAN YOU HANDLE THIS? I DON'T THINK YOU CAN HANDLE THIS at Melbourne Fringe
This September, The Butterfly Club presents a zany jaunt through musical theatre and light opera classics as Luke Belle grapples with his on and off stage role as long-time sidekick and Sensitive New Age Guy in a world of leading men - Prince Charming, the Hemsworth brothers and ChristIan Grey.
Luke might have been an orphan in Fagan's gang, a Lord High Executioner and a Gondolier-turned- King but he's never been the Leading Man, the heart-throb, the bad boy or even boy-next-door. He's got a classic case of 'Sidekick Syndrome and he wants to sing about it.
Moving from country Victoria to pursue training in classical voice over the last 8 years, Luke is trading his opera roots for a one-man cabaret this September. "In cabaret I'm able to explore my love of musical theatre - including songs made famous by women - and play more than I would normally, in the classical world," says Luke, a classically-trained light baritone.
With silly observations from childhood, teenage years in regional Australia and today, this cheerful and carefully-crafted cabaret includes classic show tunes, much-loved Gilbert and Sullivan standards a well as lesser-known operetta repertoire. Catch Luke in this world premiere 12th to 17th September, as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2017.
