See your favourite theatre stars embody Beyoncé, Cyndi Lauper, Madonna and more for BeyondKinky.

Kinky Boots are planning a glittering charity concert to help raise money for the brilliant work of beyondblue, an Australian mental health charity.

The Aussie cast of Cyndi Lauper’s hit musical will perform at Sydney’s Capitol Theatre on Sunday 18 June, where they’ll perform music by Madonna, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, The Spice Girls, Aretha Franklin, and Celine Dion, as well as Cyndi Lauper herself.

Australian comedy veteran and Kinky Boots cast member, Glenn Butcher, will host the show, helping to welcome many principal cast members to the stage including Callum Francis, Toby Francis, Sophie Wright, Teagan Wouters, Joe Kosky and the super talented ensemble.

BeyondKinky follows the success of Beyond Misérables, also produced by the Michael Cassel Group during its run of Les Misérables, which raised $90,000 in support of charity partner, beyondblue.

In partnership with Kinky Boots, beyondblue created the ‘Just Be’ campaign to help share the musical’s central message of diversity and acceptance with the wider community.

beyondblue CEO Georgie Harman said the amazing cast and BeyondKinky will raise vital funds to contribute to beyondblue’s Support Service; “Each month, more than 13,000 Australians seek free and confidential help from our Support Service. Many of those people are seeking support because they experience depression, anxiety or are at risk of suicide. Our Support Service’s mental health professionals provide people with counselling, information and referrals for ongoing support that helps improve and save lives.”

beyondblue is a not-for-profit organisation working to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression and suicide in Australia, raising awareness and understanding, empowering people to seek help, and supporting recovery and management of these conditions.

Mental health professionals are available at the beyondblue Support Service via phone 24/7 on 1300 22 4636 or via beyondblue.org.au/get-support for web chat 3pm to midnight (AEST) or email responses (within 24 hours).

BeyondKinky takes place at Capitol Theatre, Sydney on 18 June – tickets on sale now.
