He’s the Voice

Michael Winslow made a name for himself in the

Police Academy

movies of the ’80s and ’90s, the only actor whose character

appeared in all seven films, the spin-off TV series and an animated

series. The role earned him the nickname of ‘motor mouth’ for

his talent in vocal sound effects and since then he’s been heard on

The Simpsons

,

Family Guy

and numerous video games. In his first

show in Brisbane he brings a mix of impersonations, impressions,

storytelling, music and sound effects to the stage – including a re-

enactment of an entire

Star Wars

battle scene – at Hamilton Hotel

on 29 July. Tickets $54 plus fees. See

Cabaret favourite Meouw Meouw (

) opens the

program for the Noosa Long Weekend Festival from 15-24

July. It’s 15 years since playwright David Williamson, his wife

Kristin and a few other dedicated locals founded a cultural

event that would give visitors something beyond the beach

to remember. The Noosa Long Weekend Festival now

spans 10 days with events across theatre, literature, music,

dance, film, visual arts, food and forums. The Queensland

Ballet, satirist Max Gillies, the One Act Play series, social

researcher Hugh Mackay and Swing On This with Luke

Kennedy, Rob Mills, Michael Falzon and their 9-piece

orchestra are among the highlights. For details and to book
