MALVERN twins Oscar and Hamish Morgan are full of excitement about their first day at school. The five-year-olds will start prep at Malvern Central School, where they are both looking forward to learning to read and write. The boys are especially excited to be starting school together. ‘‘They are very tight,’’ says their mum, Linda. About 400 prep students are expected to arrive at at Stonnington state schools this year.

ach morning I walk through the front doors of Peter Mac and see people who are going through cancer treatments or a mother with her child who is receiving treatment. I think of my children and how thrilling it is to be at the cutting edge of an industry that helps millions of people. Peter Mac is home to Australia’s largest cancer research group, with more than 500 laboratory-based researchers, clinical researchers, research nurses and other health professionals. Peter Mac conducts more than 200 clinical trials a year to improve treatment outcomes as well as the social and emotional impact of cancer on patients, their families and carers. With new methods of early diagnosis and treatment being developed every day, cancer, in many cases, can be controlled. Staying away from cigarettes (and) the sun’s most potent rays, having a good diet, exercising and taking part in cancer screening and immunisation programs are the best prevention methods. When I began working as a clinician, only one-third of people diagnosed with cancer survived long-term. Thirty-five years later, the rate has more than doubled to almost 70 per cent. Long-term survival is increasing at a rate of about 1 per cent each year. By 2025, we estimate the rate will be more than 80 per cent. Cancer will be perceived as a very different illness. The most common cause of cancer deaths is lung cancer, followed by bowel cancer. Many lives can be saved through reducing the number of smokers and the

effects of second-hand smoke. The federal government’s determination to introduce plain-paper packaging for cigarettes and take on the big tobacco companies is world-leading and has taken great courage. Prostate cancer largely affects men aged 55 and over, with 90 per cent of cases being non-aggressive and sometimes going unnoticed. The key issue in prostate cancer is identifying what differentiates the 90 per cent of not-so-aggressive cancers from the 10 per cent of aggressive ones. Ninety per cent of Peter Mac’s

annual research budget of about $60 million comes from grants from the National Health and Medical Research Council and the Cancer Council Victoria, among others. While about 40 per cent of our grant applications receive funding, many excellent ideas never see the light of day. It is important to keep encouraging governments and the public to fund research. Prevention is always better than cure. The public should also take part in screening programs such as mammography, Pap smears and bowel cancer screening.

PROFILE JOE TRAPANI, 58 LIVES: Camberwell. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT BOROONDARA: Interwar architecture, parks and leafy surrounds. I love the convenient public transport, local schools and shopping in Camberwell. WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE: Reduce traffic congestion in residential streets, discouraging short cuts between major roads.

Graduates on career high

TOMORROW’S STAR: Circus performer Lewie West, who specialises in aerial strap work BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@mmpgroup.com.au

FIFTEEN graduates from the National Institute of Circus Arts are still on a high after opening a prestigious four-day French circus festival this month. Lewie West, who turned 25 on Australia day, said his high-f lying role in the 34th Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain (World Festival of the Circus of Tomorrow) in Paris, which ended last Sunday, was a career highlight.

Mr West, who graduated from NICA in 2008, said he was lucky to be selected for the year’s showcase after having applied for the past three years and having met with the festival’s artistic director, Yaron Lifschitz. “It’s definitely the biggest highlight of my solo career,’’ he said. ‘‘I love working with an ensemble and that has been the focus of the past four years.’’ Mr West, specialises in tumbling and aerial straps. Since leaving NICA’s Prahran campus, he has per-

formed with Australian contemporary circus company Circa at La Tohu in Montreal, the New Victory Theatre in New York and the Barbican in London. “I wasn’t really sure where I wanted to work after NICA, I just knew I wanted to get started straight away,’’ he said. Before the Festival Mondial, NICA director Pamela Creed sent a message of praise for the artists. ‘‘They are excited by this extraordinary opportunity, and we are excited for them as they will be rep-

resenting Australia at the prestigious international festival,” she said. It was at the Festival Mondial in 2009 that another NICA graduate, Emma Henshall, won the gold medal for her daring and graceful swinging trapeze act. Mr West attributed his career success to the teachers and students at the Prahran circus school, which is the only one of its kind in Australia. “It’s a generous and happy community. If you make an effort to meet people and love what you do, you’ll have a good life with it,’’ he said.

Swinburne backs HELP SWINBURNE University has rejected Grattan Institute’s 2013 Mapping Australian Higher Education report, saying it undermines the success of the HECS-HELP loan scheme. The Grattan Institute last week revealed federal government estimates showing $6.2 billion of the $26.3 billion owed under the HELP student loan scheme will never be repaid. Grattan Institute Higher Education Program director Andrew Norton said altering the HELP repayment system to require people working overseas to pay would improve federal government’s debt. “Most people who go overseas to work eventually come back,” he said. “The current system makes education more attractive by reducing risk and linking repayments to income. The basic idea is still a good one.” Australian Taxation Office figures show 14,880 students in South Yarra, Prahran, Toorak, Malvern, Armadale and Glen Iris owed $226.4 million in HELP loans in 2010, averaging more than $15,000 per student. Swinburne University spokesman Andrew Dempster said that without HELP, Australia would face similar problems to those of the US, where ‘‘student debt exceeds $1 trillion and many students face decades of repayments or default’’. “It is disappointing that the Grattan Institute report is being used to undermine the longterm success of HECS,” Mr Dempster said.

VOX POP SHOULD STONNINGTON COUNCIL TIGHTEN SMOKING LAWS IN PUBLIC PLACES? JANEY NESTADT, 18 Yes, they definitely should. Cigarette smoke is absolutely disgusting, and it’s very unattractive.

RORY CUSHNAHAN, 23 I find it’s dependent on the area. Around pubs it’s fine, but if it’s a place with children or pregnant women, then there probably should be tighter laws.

CATHERINE THOMPSON, 18 It depends on the situation. If it’s more of an adult-oriented place, then it shouldn’t be a problem.

Smoking bans on the cards emorton@mmpgroup.com.au

STONNINGTON council will consider introducing a smoke-free policy by the end of the financial year, potentially banning smoking in public places such as outdoor dining areas, parks and playgrounds. The move comes after a survey, by Quit Victoria and the Heart Foundation, of all 79 Victorian councils revealed that 57 per cent of councils including Port Phillip, Monash, Yarra, Melbourne and Boroondara had introduced smoke-free policies in public areas. Stonnington council last considered a smoke-free policy in October 2011, with a residential survey showing high demand for a ban in areas such as playgrounds, bus and tram stops, taxi ranks and outdoor dining. Stonnington chief executive Warren Roberts said that in 2011 coun-

High Five for charity THE dating game has never been the thing for 25-year-old Prahran resident Ellen Simpson. But the music theatre performer (pictured) has decided to go on five dates in five weeks with strangers to raise money for disadvantaged urban communities. Ms Simpson is taking part in Five in Five, a national campaign to encourage dating without online profiles or social networks. Participants seek donations as they are sent on five dates set up by friends, family and colleagues. “I am very excited about the process,” Ms Simpson said. “But I do not want to just go on five dinner dates. I want them to be exciting and different.” Simpson, who has performed in hit shows such as Wicked and The Phantom of the Opera sequel, Love Never Dies, said Five in Five gave her an opportunity to venture beyond the “industry crowd”.

cil believed a consistent approach across all municipalities, through state legislation, would be more effective in helping to reduce exposure to harmful second-hand smoke rather than a potentially inconsistent council-by-council approach. Some of Chapel Street’s longestserving traders said bans could seriously affect business. Caffe Sienna manager Joey Dee, said: “Chapel Street has a very long and strong cafe culture and with that, unfortunately, comes smoking culture. I think encouraging better smoker etiquette is the answer instead of banning it outright.’’ Chapelli’s Restaurant owner Nazih Seoud said: “There need to be statewide laws on public smoking if they are to introduce it. Until then, everybody should be allowed equal choice on whether to smoke or not, and whether to sit or stand next to someone who is smoking.’’

Council tackles building heights

Kids, cops in goals galore

BY EDDIE MORTON

POLICE faced off against a bunch of youngsters last week – and ended up kicking goals for community connections. Victoria Police Soccer Club’s first community match, at Orrong Romanis Reserve, pitted cops against an eager team of juniors from Prahran public housing estates. Among the spectators was Stonnington mayor Matthew Koce, who said the event encouraged a positive relationship between young people and police. “The day helped the kids to realise the police are not just there when things go wrong – they are also there when things go right and as a constant, positive presence,” he said. Senior Constable Karolyn Formosa said: “It was a great day and another step in building a positive relationship between local law enforcement and young people from the estates.’’ EDDIE MORTON

AN 18-storey development at 781-805 Dandenong Road, Malvern East, will be one of the first items to go before council this year. The application comes as council reassesses height restrictions along the main road bordering Stonnington and Glen Eira municipalities. As part of the amendment to the Dandenong Road planning scheme, the council is proposing a limit of six storeys between Tooronga Road and Bates Street, Malvern East. It

applied for interim planning controls in December. Dandenong Road height controls have long concerned councillors and residents after similar planning scheme amendments were refused in March, 2011, by the state Planning Department. The recent application, submitted to council by Bensons Property Group on December 5, comprises 107 one-bedroom apartments, 218 two-bedroom apartments, 375 parking spaces and three commercial spaces. Designs submitted by landscape

architectural firm Tract Consultants, show 400 bicycle parking spaces, a community garden, public art spaces and a playground. Malvern East Group founder Ann Reid has warned residents about the proposed high-rise, saying it is “over the top”. She questions whether applicants were being truly sensitive to council’s intentions for the area. “Malvern East Group wholeheartedly supports council in its bid for height controls in the area,’’ she said. ‘‘Our greatest fear is that the applicants have pre-empted council and the amendment won’t be in the

planning scheme soon enough to stop it.” Mayor Matthew Koce assured residents council would continue to advocate on behalf of the community. Community consultation on Amendment C173 to the Dandenong Road planning scheme started on January 24. Council expects a decision on the interim controls by the end of this month. “If interim controls are approved, any planning application would be assessed against those controls,” Mr Koce said.

STEPHEN MCKENZIE

GREEN thumbs are sure to give ‘‘thumbs up’’ to Stonnington’s new open gardens event, showcasing the work of top landscape designers. Stonnington Open Gardens will open 10 eye-catching backyards on Friday, March 1 and Saturday, March 2, and donate all money raised to local chairty Very Special Kids. Yvonne Flynn, who has organised the event, said it would focus on innovation, sustainability, beauty and garden structure. ‘‘People love open garden events because they can gather new ideas and take them home,’’ she said. Robert Boden, who designed one of the gardens on show, said: ‘‘This event will show what is possible even during the dry seasons.’’ For details, visit stonningtonopen gardens.org. EDDIE MORTON

Non-voters told ‘please explain’ lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au

STONNINGTON’S voter turnout was down during October’s local elections, despite the council’s efforts to encourage more people to the polls. The previous council opted to switch from postal to attendance voting ahead of last year’s elections, after finding voter participation in the municipality was one of the lowest in metropolitan Melbourne. However, voter turnout in Stonnington was just 56.2 per cent in October, compared to 65.1 per cent in 2008 – leaving the municipality with the fourth-lowest turnout in the state behind Yarra, Melbourne and Port Phillip. The Victorian Electoral Commission has issued 12,882 Stonnington residents with failure-to-vote notices seeking an explanation as to why the person did not vote. Those who fail to provide a sufficient excuse face a $70 penalty.

According to the VEC, postal voting has a slightly higher turnout than attendance voting. Since 1993, the percentage of Stonnington residents voting in local government elections has been between 52 per cent and 65 per cent. Stonnington Council chief executive Warren Roberts said participation rates in the 2012 election varied across the municipality. ‘‘There was a higher turnout in East ward, where there are more homeowners who have lived in the area for some time,’’ he said. ‘‘By comparison, there was a lower turnout in the inner City North and South wards, which have a higher proportion of people who have lived in the area for a shorter period of time.’’ Mr Roberts said a decision on the method of voting at the next election would be made by council at least eight months before. The average voter turnout across the state in 2012 was 71 per cent, down from 74.36 per cent in 2008.

Cloud over solar plan

Patients queue in cutback pain BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bfitzgerald@mmpgroup.com.au

PATIENTS will have to wait longer for elective surgery at Sandringham Hospital as its management group, Alfred Health, grapples with a $7.8 million cut in federal funding. The hospital will close one operating theatre and eight day chairs for six weeks, from March 29 to May 10. The closures will mean a reduction in elective surgery at Alfred

Health’s three hospitals at Sandringham, Prahran and Caulfield. The government announced on December 19 that it planned to reduce its contribution to Victoria’s health budget due to a slower-thanexpected growth in the state’s population. Alfred Health staff received a memorandum on January 23 outlining the impact of the funding cuts the hospitals’ finances. Alfred Health chief executive Andrew Way said he was “greatly

saddened” by the cuts. “The recently announced reduction of $7.815m in funding to Alfred Health by the federal government can only have a detrimental impact on our continuous improvement.’’ He said the Alfred Health board of directors had decided to reduce elective surgery to ‘‘maintain access times, quality and safety of services’’, and to minimise the impact on patients and staff levels. Elective surgery waiting lists

across the three hospitals are expected to blow out from 3059 to 3337 between now and the end of June. Victorian Health Minister David Davis has labelled the funding cuts a “cash grab”. But Prime Minister Julia Gillard claimed the state government was misleading hospital administrators and deceiving Victorians by claiming the federal government was reducing funding. She said Victorian federal health funding was rising.

Rescue spike sparks warning BY LAURA BANKS lbanks@mmpgroup.com.au

ATTENDANCE at Port Phillip beaches is down this summer, according to figures from Lifesaving Victoria, but beach rescues are up. An estimated 50,414 people visited Elwood, Port Melbourne, Sandridge, South Melbourne and St Kilda beaches throughout December and January, compared with 55,631 in the same period last year. Lifesavers rescued four beachgoers in Elwood and two in St Kilda. No rescues were recorded in December and January last year. The figures, released last week, reveal that lifeguards treated 30 people for minor injuries compared with 50 in the same period last year. Three people were treated for major first aid in the two months – the same number as last year. Life Saving Victoria communications officer Holly Bennett said people needed to remain vigilant around water. “We urge people to read safety signage at the beach to be aware of potential hazards and to swim between the red and yellow flags.” Ms Bennett said people should never swim alone and children under five should always be within arm’s reach when in the water. She advised swimmers to stay out of the water when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. For more information, visit watersafety.vic.gov.au. 8 STONNINGTON REVIEW LOCAL

AN ENVIRONMENTAL group has slammed a Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal decision to restrict the installation of solar panels on two semi-detached Garden City houses. Rowan Groves and Malcolm Chumley applied to Port Phillip council in June 2011 to install 48 solar panels on the shared roof of their 1930s Page Avenue homes. Council approved a permit for panels 12 months later, on the provision they were installed only on the shaded east-facing side of the roof, which can not be seen from the street, to comply with heritage overlay policy. Mr Groves and Mr Chumley took their argument to VCAT which rejected their appeal on January 8. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT? THE LOOK OF THE STREET OR SUSTAINING LOW ENERGY-TYPE SOLAR PANELS?

TONS OF FUN FOR MAVIS At 100, Mavis Shannon loves a good walk and a lively party, and is excited about meeting her fourth great-grandchild, due any day. Mrs Shannon turned 100 on January 21 with her extended family around her, followed three days later by a party at BASS Care in Balwyn, close to her home. Born in 1913, Mavis grew up in Clifton Hill and attended Melbourne High when it was a co-ed selective school in Spring Street. As an English teacher at Box Hill Girls’ High, she won a scholarship to study drama in London but gave it up to get married and produce daughters Helen, Margaret and Catherine. She retained her teaching job and in the ’60s was asked to coach nuns newly emerged from Abbotsford Convent in the ways of the world before becoming the first female head of the ABC’s advisory board.

JANUARY 30, 2013

Locals Into Victoria’s Environment convener David Robinson said the decision was outrageous. “What’s more important? The look of the street or sustaining low energy-type solar panels?” In handing down his decision, VCAT senior member Laurie Hewet said “there may come a time when solar panels are regarded by the community in the same light as antennas and be exempt from planning permit controls. “Until then however, I must apply the planning scheme as I find it and I must assess the effect of the visible structures on the significance of the heritage place.” Mr Groves and Mr Chumley said they hoped they could get a lawyer on board pro-bono to take their fight to the Supreme Court. “Council needs to get fair dinkum about what it’s priorities are,” Mr Groves said. Port Phillip council spokeswoman Katie Elles said the council aimed to reach a balanced approach between heritage and sustainability. LAURA BANKS

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ WHEEL DANGER I disagree with Garry Brennan’s statement that ‘‘a street that is designed to attract people on bikes is more friendly to all visitors’’ (‘‘Plan of action’’, RL, January 16). When crossing Chapel Street it is not unusual for cars to kindly slow or stop and wave a pedestrian across, while 100 kilograms of commuter cyclist dangerously hurtling down a narrow bike lane at 30 km/h during peak hour is more likely to act in a more threatening manner. The council’s plan to build a bike path along the Sandringham train line will help remove commuter cyclists from Chapel Street and improve safety for all, including local cyclists. Justin Zakis / South Yarra ■ SALTY TALK I am disgusted at the language in the Letters page of thy publication (‘‘Right on time’’, RL, January 16). It is similar to the sort of language used by the drunken, brawling drug-

taking youth who seem to be involved in fighting and then cluttering up our emergency departments every week. Mr Disgusted of Malvern / via email

seems a bit short-sighted now doesn’t it? Don’t worry, once again taxpayers will foot the bill. Laurence / via email

■ FEE BLOW It is ridiculous to increase the fees to make an application to VCAT, there should be no fee or minimum fee (‘‘Proposed planning fees to go through the roof’’, RL, January 23). It is a blow to the public’s access to justice. Many Victorians will simply not be able to utilise that court system. It undermines our democracy. Sandy / via website

■ EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT Terry Bennett’s Gym is one of the best places in Prahran for all people (‘‘Fitness institution to up sticks’’, RL, January 23). It must be saved, it’s for the benefit of all people in and out of the Stonnington area. Definitely an icon of Melbourne’s history! Mario Tomic / via website ■ HARD LESSON So Clem Newton-Brown wants to build a high school in Stonnington (‘‘Plan of action’’, RL, January 16). I seem to remember there was a school in High Street, Prahran (possibly primary, I can’t remember) that the Kennett government sold off for flats. Wouldn’t that site be handy right now, Clem?

FROCK OPERA Musical export MICHELLE BUSCEMI returns for a night of song under the stars

O

DRESS REHEARSAL: Opera soprano Michelle Buscemi is fitted for a new Linda Britten frock in preparation for next month’s Opera in the Park

pera music has a niggling reputation in Australia that it cannot shake, according to Michelle Buscemi. While the young soprano singer admits some operas can be long and dull, she says finding the real meaning in the words can be the difference between an opera hater and an opera fanatic. “There is a stigma attached to opera in Australia, which suggests it is all old and boring,” Buscemi says.“But it is quite the opposite. Mozart’s operas are all dirty and filled with hidden meanings.” Born and raised in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, Buscemi, 33, was always destined for the stage, despite being too shy to admit it as a child. Until the age of 16, when she first began technical singing lessons with stage veteran Gloden Mercer, Buscemi would sing for hours in front of her bedroom mirror. Her parents migrated to Australia from southern Italy in the early 1960s. Her father was an opera fanatic and would play his records every morning. Her mother and grandmother had naturally beautiful voices. “The singing came from my mother and grandmother,” Buscemi says. “My grandmother, who is now 86, used to sing while working on her farm in Calabria and everybody who knew her would say how amazing her voice was.” Today, Buscemi lives with her baritone partner in the Italian city

of Lucca, the spiritual home of Italian opera and the birthplace of composer Giacomo Puccini. Buscemi has earned a reputation as one of Australia’s best opera exports. She is in Melbourne until mid-March, and the highlight of her stay will be a headline appearance in the City of Stonnington’s Opera in the Park on February 2 at Victoria Gardens, Prahran. Organisers say last year’s event attracted more than 5000 opera fans. Buscemi will play the role of an upper-class courtesan called Violetta in the 19th century La Traviata, by Giuseppe Verdi. Costumes will include three couture dresses handmade by Melbourne designer Linda Britten. “It is a role which I have always wanted to play,” Buscemi says. “I consider myself very lucky to have been approached for Opera in the Park, but sadly I do not get to keep the dresses.’’ Buscemi’s career may only just be blossoming, but it has been filled with accolades and international exploits. She completed a bachelor of performing arts at the Victorian College of the Arts then found herself jetting off to the mother country after her stand-out performance at the Acclaim Comunale Awards in 2005 won her a scholarship to study at the Accademia di Teatro Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Florence. It was there that she found her true love and extraordinary talent for singing.

“I fell in love with Italy, I guess,” Buscemi says.“There, I am immersed in the music and it is so easy to travel between countries.” Since then, Buscemi has performed from Russia’s St Petersburg to Scotland, singing music she had only ever dreamed about. Her resume includes solo performances of Mozart, Bellini, Donizetti and Puccini, as well as regular appearances on the Melbourne Opera program. Buscemi says she often pinches herself and admits she has come a long way since her first role as Yum Yum in the comic opera Mikado with an amateur theatre company in Preston. “Taking to the stage was never difficult for me once I got the hang of it,” she says.“I remember first performing in front of my entire high school playing Liesl in The Sound of Music.” She says that in the world of opera, she is “still a baby”; there is much more to achieve, many more songs to sing and many more characters to play. A small part of her even wants to be the lead singer in an ’80s glam-rock group.“Since I was a teenager, I have kind-of always wanted to be a rock star too, like in a glam-rock band like Heart or Cyndi Lauper.” Opera in the Park, 7.30pm on February 2 at Victoria Gardens, Prahran.

W

hile the name might conjure up images of a university classroom of yoga enthusiasts wearing graduation caps, in reality the Australian Yoga Academy in Prahran is a lot more low-key.The 75-minute prenatal classes

are held twice a week in the renovated downstairs studio. Pregnant women and stairs don’t mix, so don’t make the mistake I did and head to the reception desk upstairs – you can pay your instructor in the studio.

THE VERDICT While the room is uncomfortably hot to begin with, I soon settle into my breathing and enjoy taking the time to reflect on the growing baby inside me. I’m worried my heartburn will prevent me from participating in too many downward dog poses, but Jen discreetly offers helpful suggestions to ease the pain. With only 10 of us in the room, she is able to walk around, gently readjusting us to get maximum benefit from the poses. After an hour, we settle in for 10 minutes of relaxation and despite having only a thin mat separating me from the hard floor, I almost fall asleep.

t was love at first sight when Robbie Carmelotti saw the new Tony award-winning revival of Hair: Summer of Love on Broadway. ‘‘I have never been so moved by anything in the theatre environment,” he says.“I left the theatre and put a deposit down for the rights the very next morning.’’ A few years later, Carmelotti is directing Hair for its Midsumma run at Chapel off Chapel. Carmelotti says the revival takes a fresh approach to the story of Hair while staying true to the spirit of the 1968 original. “The message isn’t so much about getting stoned and doing drugs – that all still happens – but what the kids are fighting for, what their beliefs are and why they want peace is touched on more,” he says. This is done by adding new adult characters to represent the viewpoint of the 40 to HAIR: SUMMER OF LOVE 50-year-old age group of the Where: Chapel off Chapel, 12 Little Chapel time, and how that viewpoint Street, Prahran conflicted with the idealistic When: January 31 to February 17 one of the young hippies.

A portion of proceeds from ticket “It’s all common sales will go to Learning For Life Autism Centre knowledge now, whereas back then it wasn’t.” The new Hair is not just for nostalgic baby boomers who grew up singing along to Age of

Aquarius, Let the Sunshine In and I Got Life; it also has plenty to attract a younger, but still politically engaged, audience. What hasn’t changed is the anti-Vietnam War message, which Carmelotti says is even stronger now that we view it through the prism of history. ‘‘You can’t help but watch it and think of Iraq or Afghanistan ...The topics are completely relevant to today, ” he says. “It’s interesting that the kids back then had pretty much the same feelings about war that I have today. The difference is, they didn’t have a choice.They had to go to war.’’ Hair also tackles issues of sexuality, gender and race equality, freedom of speech and political propaganda – all as relevant in 2013 as they were in the ’70s. However, when the original Hair premiered, one day after censorship in theatre was abolished in the UK, all tongues were wagging about the nude scene at the end of Act I. Carmelotti says it is not a sexual moment and critics who called it scandalous were missing the point. ‘‘The way it’s done is a moment of sheer liberation, joy and contentment within themselves,” he says.“You’re almost envious that you can’t join in.’’ MICHAEL RYAN mryan@mmpgroup.com.au

ow great was this year’s Australian Open? Balmy summer days, gripping matches and plenty of off-court entertainment at Melbourne Park – you couldn’t ask for more. Here’s hoping the popularity of our cherished grand slam translates to greater interest at club level. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT Alanna Hawthorne enjoyed a threeset nail-biter between Caroline Wozniacki, a Dane, and Svetlana Kuznetsova, a Russian. Aussie, Ashleigh, Aussie, Heidi, and Aussie, Elise, all 15. Oi, Oi, Oi. Imagine having this gig on a 40-degree day. Hardly a ball... Callum, 6, has a stony expression perfect for his hulking makeup job. Mother and daughter, Patricia Doyle and Andrea Burns, enjoyed their first Australian Open together. They enjoyed those beers, too! Jack Dan’s accreditation pass said John Blake, but who’s to argue? “I have outstanding warrants,” joked Dan in an Eastern accent I also doubted. “I’m from West Prestonia, across from Coburgistan,” he said. Regardless of where he’s from, he had Denise Broadhurst in stitches.

STEPHEN MCKENZIE

Teenager Tayla bowls it up to the oldies BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au SHE’S only 14 but Tayla Morison is making a serious name for herself in a sport more associated with our senior citizens. She’s going so well, in fact, that she has won the ladies’ championship at the powerful Melbourne Bowling Club and has broken into the Saturday pennant team. ‘‘It’s good to get out on a Saturday arvo,’’ she says. ‘‘Everyone’s made me feel really welcome and they’re a good laugh. We’re doing pretty well, too.’’ The Windsor-based club, reigning pennant champions and this season’s ladder leader, has been a perfect fit for Morison after her move from the Long Island club where she learned the game. ‘‘My Mum started playing and about a year later I took it up,’’ she says. ‘‘It just seemed like a really interesting game and really good for your

mind. Plenty of mind games go on in a game.’’ Although she was only 10 when she started, Morison was soon representing her state. She started in the Victorian ladies under-18s and did so well she was selected in the Victorian open under-18s by the time she was 12. She’s been a regular in state sides ever since, most recently as part of winning teams against South Australia and Tasmania. Morison was further honoured in the South Australia series by being named the women’s player of the tournament. ‘‘That’s been the highlight so far, playing for Victoria,’’ she says. ‘‘I like to push my standard and keep improving.’’ It’s that continued drive to improve that’s seen her part of the high-f lying Melbourne pennant team since before Christmas, regularly holding her own against more experienced players. She’s also just won the Melbourne

Bowling Club open ladies 2013 championship. ‘‘At first I got a bit intimidated, but that doesn’t happen now,’’ Morison says. ‘‘Now they’re just another name on the paper and I know they can be beaten. ‘‘I’m pretty happy with how I’m going and I just try to keep improving.’’ Melbourne sits a game clear on top of the pennant ladder and Tayla is enjoying being part of the defence of last season’s flag. And while she’s still has a few more years of school to go, she has one eye on her future in the sport. ‘‘Maybe something like a bowls coach, or something in nutrition. That would be pretty cool,’’ she says. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

True Blues fall to grand final loss ARI HATZIS

BY EWEN MCRAE PRAHRAN felt the might of Melbourne’s powerful batting line-up in Premier Cricket’s one-day final on Sunday, a superb knock by Matthew Brown guiding the Demons to a five-wicket victory. Brown made 77 as Melbourne chased down the True Blues’ total of 168 with more than four overs to spare. After winning the toss and batting, True Blues lost Adam Bull early but recovered to 1/41 through a stand between Steven De Bolfo (30) and Dan Salpietro (14). But the loss of Salpietro triggered a mini collapse which saw Prahran slump to 6/75 when Liam Murphy (4), Neil Schlittler (4) and Steve Seymour (6) left in quick succession. Skipper Sam Coates (35) and Nick Morrey (19) slowly rebuilt the innings, and some late hitting by Matt Wilcox (19 no) took Prahran to 9/168 in the 50 overs. The chase began badly for Melbourne, with Seymour getting the Demons skipper Andrew Kent for a duck in the first over. But from there they rebuilt, with Brown joined by Keath to put together the game’s most decisive partnership. Brown was savage on anything overpitched, launching Wilcox for a huge six over long on, while Keath started slowly but was soon scoring freely. The partnership finished at 80 when Bryce McGain coaxed Keath (30) out of his crease and keeper Coates whipped off the bails. But Robert Cooper (43) joined Brown for a 75-run stand which took their team to the brink of victory.

■ TOWNSEND FOR A TON A Shane Townsend hundred led Prahran’s Second XI to a comprehensive win over North Melbourne on the weekend. Prahran passed the 214 target for the loss of just three wickets, before batting on to make 9/287. . ■ COMEBACK FOR KEVS St Kevins OC is close to sealing an amazing comeback victory in its Dunstan Shield clash with North Balwyn. After being bowled out for just 112 on Saturday, St Kevins roared back into the game, reducing the home side to 7/67 with just one recognised batsman left.

NOT OUT! Prahran’s Steven De Bolfo steps on his wicket while taking a swing at a free hit Cooper was out with just 14 more needed, and when Seymour bagged two late wickets, including Brown, the door was ajar for an amazing turnaround. Some level-headed batting from McDonald and Ryan seeing them to 5-169 to add the one-day title to the Twenty20 championship. Prahran coach Andrew Walton had no complaints about the result. "They’re a very good side, and they controlled the game from pretty early on,’’ he said. "I thought we fought it out late and made them earn it, which is pleasing." ON Saturday, Prahran declared at 8/242 in the two-day match against North Melbourne to set a target of 257. The Roos reached 6/90, the True Blues winning on first innings.

Nethersole grabs seven but century foils Malvern BEN Nethersole took seven wickets but couldn’t save Malvern from a disappointing Sub District cricket loss to Kingston Saints on Saturday. Malvern started the second day of the match at Walter Galt Reserve in the box seat, with the home side already 4/47 chasing Malvern’s 178. But while Nethersole (7-88) ran through the visitors’ batting to reduce the home side to 8/83, Malvern was foiled by Lee Dale. Batting at number five, he was last out for 126 as the home side was

BRIEFS

bowled out for 212 to take the points. Early wickets were the key for the Roosters and it was Nethersole who delivered when he bagged Saints skipper Craig Entwistle for 17. That began a purple patch for Malvern, with the home side losing 4/10 as Nethersole grabbed his second five-wicket haul for the club. But Dale was still scoring freely and he was able to push the score to 147 - still 31 in arrears - before the ninth wicket fell.

In a nail-biting finish, Malvern couldn’t make the breakthrough as Dale shared a last-wicket stand of 65 with Michael O’Shea (4). Malvern then made 2/106 batting a second time, with James Lynch unbeaten on 46. Malvern skipper Simon Conway said his team just didn’t have the answer to Dale. “We did a lot right, and I don’t think it was our bowling that cost us the game,” Conway said. “Unfortunately he just had a day

out and you’ve got to take your hat off to him.” Conway was also full of praise for Nethersole, who took all six Kingston wickets which fell on the day. “He was superb. He bowled well early and then came back late and was just as effective,” Conway said. Malvern must now win all three remaining games to have any chance of playing finals. ‘‘We need to get back that confidence and winning feeling,” Conway said.

■ ON FOR THE CHASE Melbourne Wanderers will have a tough chase this week, after Elwood was bowled out for 246 in its Quiney Shield match at the weekend. The Wanderers finishing the day strongly to take the last six wickets for 29 runs. ■ DAVIDSON A GOOD FIT South Yarra-based Old Geelong Football Club has announced former AFL player Tom Davidson as fitness coach. Davidson spent five seasons with Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs but played just one game because of two knee reconstructions. ■ BOWLER GETS THE CALL Melbourne Bowling Club’s Dylan Fisher,18, has been selected in the Australian development squad for the annual TransTasman series in Auckland from March 17-23. ■ SO NEAR, SO FAR Armadale’s women’s bowlers suffered an agonising pennants defeat against Blackburn last week, missing the victory by the narrowest of margins. Armadale went down 2-60 to 14-61. ■ $40,000 ON OFFER Entries for the Stonnington Gift close February 10 for the event on February 22, with several different disciplines available and $40,000 in prizemoney. Entry forms at at val.org.au. ■ SKILLS FOR KIDS Toorak East Malvern Hockey Club will run junior clinics throughout February for players of all abilities at the Hawthorn Hockey Centre’s main ground.
