Grease tour and cast announced

It's electrifyin'! The Number One Party Musical, Grease, is back this year with their feel-good tunes and a stunning cast to warm up the Winter Nights. The audience will enjoy, dance, cry and be enraptured by classic songs from the hit movie like You're The One that I want, Grease Is The World, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted to You, Grease Lightnin' and many more.

Australian theatre producer John Frost has revealed the cast and tour dates for his new multi-million dollar production of Grease.

Musical theatre favourite Rob Mills plays the lead role of Danny, and rising star Gretel Scarlett will play innocent, lovely Sandy.

Rob Mills came to fame in his performance of Fiyero in the Broadway blockbuster Wicked in Melbourne and Sydney for two years. Mills has also starred as Warner Huntington III in the hit musical Legally Blonde in Brisbane and Melbourne. Gretel Scarlett's career is not as broad Mills' yet, but she has played support roles in great productions like Wicked and Mamma Mia. Sandy will be Scarlett's first starring role, thus it is an exciting leap in her career.

Grease is one of my favourite musicals, and with this top draw cast of musical theatre stars I have no doubt it will again be everyone's favourite party musical, John Frost said. I'm thrilled that Rob Mills will be our Danny, straight from his success in Legally Blonde, and that we have found a new leading lady in Gretel Scarlett. Both Rob and Gretel gave sensational auditions, and our UK creative team knew instantly that they were the ideal Danny and Sandy. And it's wonderful again to be working with the wonderful Todd McKenney, the talented Anthony Callea and, for our sixth musical together, the irrepressible Bert Newton. What can I say about this cast – You're The One That I Want!

Grease will on in Perth From 21 June 2014, then the musical will be moving on to Adelaide from 3 August 2014,  Hobart from 5 September 2014,  Melbourne from 6 December 2014.

Chris Hemsworth a loving family man

Chris Hemsworth, a loving family man

The gorgeous blonde Aussie was recently seen back in LA spending blissful time with his family. Chris Hemsworth was recently photographed about town as he walked with his wife, Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, and their daughter, India. During the outing, Chris planted a sweet kiss on his daughter's cheek. He landed in LAX after supposedly filming reshoots for his latest project Thor: The Dark World in Washington DC .

Chris' sibling Liam also seems to be back in city of stars. Younger brother Hemsworth has reportedly returned to the West Coast and his fiancée, Miley Cyrus, in the midst of rumours that claim there is trouble in paradise. The 23-year old was spending some time with his family in Australia while Miley remained in L.A. dealing with a cheating scandal.

Rumours tell that Hunger Games star was seen leaving a party with Mad Men actress January Jones. This event sparked the media to assume that Liam cheated on Miley and that might end their four-year relationship.

However, it looks like it was a false alarm as Liam was recently spotted at Miley's LA home and Miley shared a picture of herself sporting her engagement ring on Twitter. A source allegedly close to the couple told E! News that the couple are not giving up and are still working on their issues.

Some sources claim that the cheating rumours are not true as Hemsworth and Jones have been longtime friends and they used to go clubbing together in L.A.

Huh Jackman in Les Miserables

Huh Jackman in Les Miserables

Huh, Jackman in Les Miserables ?

Hugh Jackman is not only an extraordinary actor and one of the sexiest men alive... He can sing! And the Australian performer is pretty good at it! Describing his performance in 2012 musical drama film Les Misérables as magnificent is an understatement. His work in Les Misérables earned him his first Academy Award nomination for Best actor and his first Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy in 2013.

He played the central role of Jean Valjean and his acting was nothing short of glorious. The emotion in his voice thrilled audiences across nations and the power of his acting sent a ripple of excitement through the crowds. It is unsurprising that he received so many awards and nominations for this role.

Highly dramatic and accomplished, the musical required the Jean Valjean's part to convey a large spectrum of feelings. Hugh Jackman effectively made the audience feel identified with his character and suffer his hopelessness, fury and despair.

For playing this role, Hugh Jackman was nominated by the Academy Award for Best Actor, and received many more nominations for other awards.

Les Misérables was directed by Tom Hooper and written for the screen by William Nicholson and Alain Boubill, among others. Alongside Jackman, stars Russel Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Amanda Seyfried also play in the film.

The plot takes place in 19th-century France and is centred in Jean Valjean, who for decades is chased by the policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks his parole. The plot thickens once he agrees to care for Cosette (Seyfried), the daughter of his factory worker Fantine (Hathaway).
