COMING to the theatre can be the perfect date with your special companion, it can be the sold out event that you’ve been anticipating for months, or it can be the perfect excuse for catching up with friends and enjoying a drink before the show.
As you read these examples you were probably picturing a glamorous night time setting, however, coming to the theatre can also be a lovely thing to do during the day.
We understand that a lot of people enjoy being home at night, so the Civic Theatre has programmed a range of quality daytime shows.
There are four shows in the Silver Circle series of shows in 2017.
The first show is A Fine Romance: The Magic of Fred Astaire on Wednesday, April 12 at 11am. Tickets are only $22 each and there is a free morning tea beforehand from 10am.
A Fine Romance: The Magic of Fred Astaire is an all singing, all dancing tribute to the man who went on to become the most famous dancer of all times.
Astaire was an American dancer, singer, actor, choreographer and television presenter. His stage and subsequent film and television careers spanned a total of 76 years, during which he made 31 musical films and several television specials.
As a dancer, he is best remembered for his sense of rhythm, his perfectionism, and as the dance partner and on-screen romantic interest of Ginger Rogers, with whom he co-starred in a series of nine Hollywood musicals.
The show brings back an old world glamour and charm with plenty of toe-tapping tunes and legendary dance routines of the era. A Fine Romance takes the audience from Fred’s humble beginnings on Broadway, all the way to his Hollywood days and on screen romances with his many leading ladies, including Ginger Rogers, Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn and Rita Hayworth.
You’ll hear beautiful songs including: The Way You Look Tonight, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, Cheek to Cheek.
Joe Meldrum performs the role of Fred Astaire, a reviewer from Glamadelaide said “…is in his graceful dance steps – and actually sings better than Astaire” and on his co-star “Moore is a shimmering delight who dances beautifully and sings wonderfully”.
