RENOWNED Australian show business stars David Hobson and Rachel Beck are joining forces once again to help the Mawarra Day Services Centre get back on its feet after a fire last year.

First published in the 24 April 2015 edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen. Pick your copy up today from retailers across Baw Baw.


The opera singer and musical performer will play at the West Gippsland Arts Centre for one day with their eclectic musical show ‘Both Sides’ on Sunday, 3 May.

The Mawarra Centre provides crucial resources for the disabled community in Gippsland.

An increase in the requirements of facilities requires significant investment.

Urgent rebuilding of the centre is underway, with improvements being made to the facility to improve standards.


There will be an opportunity to speak with the performers and enjoy food and refreshments before the show. Only those who purchase a VIP ticket for $70 will get to meet them though.

A standard ticket would still support the cause of Mawarra Centre and costs $60.

The production will incorporate solos and duets of classical music, well-known musicals and an array of popular songs, as well as the expected charm and storytelling from the duo.

The pre-show “meet and greet” will begin at 18.30 and the performance will begin at 19.30.”

A spokesperson for the concert said the region had a long history of supporting Mawarra

“Mawarra has been serving members of the local community for over 50 years and the community has always been very supportive of the various fundraisers they have undertaken,” they said in a media release.

“In this time of very special need, the organisers look forward to this special benefit concert and hope the community supporting them will get both enjoyment from the superb performances and the satisfaction of assisting this very important community service.”
