Devonshire with the Divas

Here’s an enjoyable way to spend a Spring Saturday afternoon!  We’ll be saluting some of the great Divas of our times including Ella, Billie, Etta, Peggy, Dusty, Cilla, and many more.     Along with guitarist Peter Sesselmann, other guests include Amanda Reitdjik, Karen Hall, Russ Redford,  join us as we serve up some of the sweetest sounds and a delicious Devonshire Tea for your enjoyment.    Bookings are essential.  2pm start.    Email for details.

(this concert is part of the “Spring Sing for Lifeline” fundraising initiative running throughout Spring with chorus events and band gigs.  Proceeds from a raffle with a generous prize pool will be donated to Lifeline Newcastle.  This is a two-draw raffle – the first draw happens at this event, the second draw will take place on 16th Dec at the annual Chorus Carols event.)

R.I.P. Ladies

After 5 years and many seasons, the tribute show – The Andrews Sisters – will be laid to rest with it’s final showing on October 21st at the Buttai Barn.

Tribute Show

It will also be my last show at the Barn for this year.  I’ll be back next year with 3 brand new shows to replace this one, plus the Patsy Cline show [which had over 9 seasons]  and Diva Fever [which just finished it’s 7th season]

The Barn offers brilliant value for a day out – with a $45 cover charge for the show, a morning devonshire tea, and a 2 course lunch.   It’s a 10.30am start and bookings are essential … Phone 4930 3153

Tripping into the 40s

Coming up at the end of May – The Wireless Chronicles: Series 3 – “Armed and Languorous”  

A night at the Wireless

If you haven’t experienced this series yet, make the effort to get here.  The Wireless Chronicles is an evening at the wireless – a Live Radio Play interspersed with the music and stories of the decade. There are 4 in the series – set in the 20s, the 30s, the 40s and the 50s. The show is delivered in the setting of a radio station with OUR audience forming the live-in-studio radio audience. The shows are an evening (or sometimes an afternoon) of pure entertainment with plenty of laughs.

Armed and Languorous is set in the 40s at the end of World War II, with some beautiful music and fascinating stories.  The Radio Play – The Devious Digit of Destiny – has a bunch of bumbling, inept, quirky, and downright sneaky new characters to tickle your funnybone.

3 shows:   May 31st 8pm + June 2nd 5pm at the Rex theatre in Bolton Street  Tickets $20pp

June 1st 2pm at the Dungeon, 608 Glebe Rd, Adamstown  Tickets $25pp (includes light refreshment)
