A belated congratulations to all those who performed or were nominated for this years TONY Awards…..
Kate Dunn ( Associate Choreographer ), Josh Horner and Grant Turner for Billy Elliott. The opening number with Elton was so spectacular! Well done on 10 Tony Awards including BEST MUSICAL!
Quite a few ABN members were at 8 Mile Creek for the 1st Annual TONY Awards Party and were cheering you all on!
Winning his first TONY Award, fellow Australian Geoffrey Rush ( and hopefully one day an ABN Ambassador ) got the crowd on their feet in the downstairs bar and his speech was just fantastic!

On the subject of the TONY’s, I want to take the opportunity to introduce a new member to the ABN. Michaeljon Slinger, who is currently the Assistant Dance Captain and Swing in WEST SIDE STORY on Broadway.
Congratulations on your Broadway Debut and also your TONY Nomination for Best Revival.
Michealjon was just interviewed for Channel 7’s Sunrise and here is the link:

Congratulations also go to Joanne Manning ‘Associate Choreographer/Director’ along with Choreographer/Director Susan Stroman for ‘Happiness’. They received Outer Critics Circle nominations for Outstanding Choreography and Outstanding Director of a Musical.
