Hugh to Perform at the Red Ball in Melbourne

Completely forgot about posting this, but Hugh Jackman will perform at the Red Ball in Melbourne on October 20th. The prestigious gala, which Hugh and his wife often attend, helps raise money for the Fight Cancer Foundation. For more information on the event, visit the Red Ball’s official site.

HOLLYWOOD star Hugh Jackman will bring a little bit of Broadway to Melbourne for the 20th anniversary of the Red Ball.

Jackman will perform excerpts from his hugely successful Hugh Jackman, Back on Broadway stage show at the black-tie charity fundraiser at the Crown Palladium on October 20.

Jackman’s performance will make the event, which raises funds for the Fight Cancer Foundation, the year’s hottest charity gala ticket.

Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, who will also attend the ball, are patrons of the charity in which they have a deep interest. Furness’s mother, Fay Duncan, was a driving force behind its establishment and is chairman of the Red Ball committee.

Jackman’s one-man show smashed box-office records during its sold-out, 10-week run in New York at the end of 2011.

The ball will give guests a rare chance to see the star perform numbers from the show.
Jackman will be based in Australia for some months to film the latest instalment in the Wolverine franchise.
