Cabaret king back in Tyalgum
TIM Draxl will always find the time to feed his passions.
In between starring in Aussie TV drama A Place to Call Home and performing in cabaret shows, the leading actor and songman has found time to return to Tyalgum after a break of more than two years, for a more intimate gig.
“I’m looking forward to coming back,” Draxl said.
“It’s a beautiful part of the world.”
Draxl was looking forward to the intimacy of the community hall show, a welcome change from the packed shows and hectic filming schedules he juggles most of the time.
“You do get to enjoy the experience a lot more,” he said.
“It is a nice change from filming. When you’re filming, you’re part of a large assemblage – and it will be nice to sing.”
While some had tried to dissuade him from being a singer/actor, Draxl said he’d never regretted his path.
“From very early on in my career, people have always said you’re going to have to choose one or the other,” he said.
“But I think the industry has changed, the world has changed, since then. Everything is so multi-faceted.”
Draxl is planning a “very diverse show” for his one-off night at Tyalgum, with the set list likely to be shaped by his mood.
“I’m quite a moody person so ... quite possibly, anything could happen,” he said.
Draxl will be accompanied by musician and composer Steven Kreamer.
Tickets are $75 per person with a two-course dinner at Flutterbies Cottage Cafe or $50 for show only.
