Mr Tim Enterprises has had a remarkable time over the last two years. We adapted our business to online classes, Zoom singing sessions and created a couple of professional musicals with kids!
Early in the first lockdowns we made contact and performed an online gig live with Matt Mazur of Turtle Dance Music that was broadcast simultaneously in New York City and Canberra. Truly technology is such an amazing thing.
Mr Tim performed to a live audience all around Australia through the National Portrait Gallery’s online programs (you can see me singing the time to go song at the end of their promo video here)
In our ongoing association with the Tuggeranong Arts Centre (TAC) we toured to Goulburn our Musical ‘Just like Clockwork’ at the beginning of 2020. Then in 2021 we began a new musical devised and created alongside of children aged 7-13yrs. This was an epic adventure as Covid lockdowns added so much challenge to the project. Our first online zoom rehearsal was truly something to behold!
However, we managed to overcome, postponements, cast changes and an intense rehearsal schedule right at the end of the year to bring two sold out shows to life with a glowing review. Here is our interview with Living arts Canberra about the project and our glowing review of the performances here.
Which brings us to this year where we will once again be writing, creating and performing another musical created alongside children. Look for more details to follow and performances in Nov 2022!
Last weekend saw our family choir performing at the Gininderry community event and we look forward to more work with them in the future.
As part of Enlighten, Tim performed four sets on piano at the National Library of Australia over the weekends. There were made up songs, Tim Bevitt originals and some Mr Tim family favourites to keep the crowds well entertained.
Mr Tim and the Fuzzy Elbows performed their first gig in over a year at the Canberra Cup day at the Canberra race course. There were pogo stilt giants hunting for foxes, face painting and jumping castles all to the rocking tunes of Mr Tim and the Fuzzy Elbows.
In a side project, Tim Bevitt will be doing an album launch of ‘Grown-up’ songs at Smiths Alternative on the 21st of May.
We are very grateful to all the support we have received over the last period of time. There is an excitement in the air as people are feeling more confident to gather again and this is leading us into our big project for 2023 – planning to travel on the Churchill Fellowship that was postponed in 2020!
So much gratitude for all that we are able to do and give. Look our for more exciting news soon!
