Send Eden to Barbados

YOU'VE got to be in it to win it, and that's just what former Gympie lad Eden Read did to get through to the final round of the Commonwealth Bank's Best Dressed of the Series.

Run by Cricket Australia, the major prize is a trip to Barbados to see the Aussies take on West Indies for the first Test match.

Eden is in the final 15 in a Cricket Australia Facebook competition with a prize of a trip for four to Barbados up for grabs.

Your vote just may be the one needed to get him over the line in the Best-Dressed competition, which is being run as part of the current One-Day series between Australia, India and Sri Lanka.

Eden won the Melbourne leg of the competition, and the voting for the overall winner is via Cricket Australia's Facebook page.

Search for the Cricket Australia Facebook page, and head to the Best Dressed competition link to vote now before lines close on Tuesday.

Eden is well-known for his stint touring with Irish tap dance troupe, Spirit of the Dance. He has appeared in more than a dozen productions for Opera Australia, including Gilbert & Sullivan classics HMS Pinafore, Trial by Jury, The Gondoliers, The Mikado and a national tour of The Pirates of Penzance.

He has also appeared as a dancer in numerous live TV events, cinema, corporate functions and special events. For the past four years, Eden has toured musical theatre to primary schools as part of Book Week celebrations.

Eden is currently the production manager, circus producer and emcee live entertainment venue Red Bennies, and continues development as a writer and director.
