Rhonda Burchmore in Cabaret
presented by Hastings Cancer Trust
With a smile that could light up the Sydney Opera house and a voice that's as big, bold and colourful as Uluru, Rhonda Burchmore has endeared herself to the hearts of all Australians. And now the Hastings Cancer Trust brings Rhonda to the Glasshouse to light up the stage!
After 30 years in the business, this vivacious, flame-haired beauty continues to turn heads wherever she goes and draw thunderous applause wherever she performs.
She has forged a lengthy career in one of the toughest and most unforgiving industries, show business, yet as critics attest, she just keeps going from strength to strength.
Few Australian entertainers have shared her status and immense popularity amongst her peers, who admire Rhonda for her big personality, big heart and enormous capacity to give back to the industry that has shaped her career.
