The Helen Reddy Story
Saturday 17 July, 8:00pm
Invincible - The Helen Reddy Story is the Incredible True Story of one Australian Woman who took on the World, starring internationally acclaimed Nikki Bennett.
Hailed as the international ‘Queen of '70s Pop’, Helen Reddy was Australia’s very first truly international superstar. In 1973, her iconic song I Am Woman became the unforgettable anthem of the women's liberation movement and made her the very first Australian to ever win a Grammy Award.
During Helen Reddy's remarkable career she placed three number one hits on the US Billboard charts and six more in the US top 10. She sold over 25 million albums and played to sellout concert houses right around the world. She even hosted her very own prime time series on U.S.Television.
Then, all of a sudden, she lost it all.
In 2020, the feature film I am Woman brought some of Helen’s incredible story to screens worldwide.
In 2021 Australian singer and actress, Nikki Bennett, brings the whole story to Australian stages. Stunningly written and performed, this beautiful tribute weaves Helen’s greatest hits through her extraordinary life story. Featuring a stellar Live band, it is a show that will capture every heart.
The Sun Herald calls Nikki Bennett ‘The quintessential showgirl’.
During her own impressive career, Nikki Bennett has starred in feature films, (Walk the Talk - 2001), television dramas ( All Saints - 2002, Out of The Blue - 2008) and musicals such as Hair.
For 15 years, she was one of the most popular guest entertainers on Australian variety television, with literally hundreds of appearances on shows like Hey Hey It’s Saturday, Midday, In Melbourne Tonight, Good Morning Australia and many more.
She has wowed audiences in 52 counties to date and is one of the most highly sought after Australian entertainers on the international corporate stage.
Whatever you do in 2021, don’t miss your chance to see this fabulous tribute to a woman who took on the world and became a legend.
