“Singing and performing music communally remains one of life’s greatest joys. Raising our voices together is an uplifting experience that enriches and improves our minds and spirits.” Alan Fletcher
He is probably best known for his portrayal as Dr Karl Kennedy in Neighbours for the last 20 years and the show’s popularity in the United Kingdom has made Alan a household name in that country. Alan has performed in six pantomimes in the UK since 1999 always as the villain!
He has played Captain Hook twice, in Sheffield and Aberdeen, Abanazar twice in Llandudno and Malvern and he has also appeared as Fleshcreep in Jack and the Beanstalk in St Albans.
This year Alan will re-create his performance as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood and the Babes in the Woods at the Grove Theatre in Dunstable, Bedfordshire.
It was his interest in music as a guitarist and lyricist that inspired the creation of his rock band ‘s waiting Room with friends Tommy Rando and Chris Hawker. Waiting Room released their debut album the Waiting Room’s on May 2005. Waiting Room have completed eight sell-out tours of the United Kingdom in the last nine years and perform weekly in Melbourne.

The Pacific Belles are delighted to be taking part in Sing for Good with their favourite Neighbour Alan Fletcher.
“It’s important to reach out and connect with people and we feel so lucky to do this through our favourite pastime, which is singing. As a three-part retro harmony group we specialise in sounding like one voice, so it gives us great pleasure to support the With One Voice program” Betty, Dot & Mabel
Inspired by the music and glamour of the 1940’s era the group was formed by Laura Monaghan who created the characters Betty, Dot and Mabel so that they could take you on a journey back in time to relive your favourite classics made famous by The Andrew Sisters.
Their aim is to bring back the nostalgia which engages all generations and their sound will have you singing along and toe-tapping in no time.
Life is like one big song for The Pacific Belles who spend their days rehearsing and their nights performing.
