Lovers of the golden age of movie musicals will find one cabaret offering on Easter Sunday particularly sweet.
For one night only new cabaret trio The Girls From Oz will perform their brand new show in London on Sunday, April 20 at The Pheasantry in Chelsea.
This talented musical trio of ex pat West End talent has created a winning new cabaret act.
Kara Lane (‘The Rocky Horror Show’, ‘Anything Goes’, ‘Oliver!’) formed The Girls From Oz six months ago, and is joined by close friends and fellow ex-pat performers Simone Craddock (‘Annie’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, ‘Hello Dolly’) and Julie Yammanee (‘Avenue Q’, ‘Gabba Gabba Hey’, ‘The World Goes Round’), to bring back some old school glamour while breathing new life into musical classics.
Kara says: “The group has a vintage vibe about it – think classic Hollywood with a twist. I grew up watching all the old MGM movie musicals so these songs have always managed to whisk me away to another place when I hear them. Our musical director, Simon Beck, is just as passionate about this project as I am and his attention to detail with finding ways to recreate this style while guiding us to give our own interpretation is wonderful”
The show includes repertoire from ‘Showboat’, ‘Kiss me Kate’, ‘Anything Goes’, ‘Gypsy’ and of course ‘Easter Parade’ to name but a few and performance styles range from tight three-part harmony numbers, to comedy character trios and ballads. A distinctive Australian humour adds to the fun.
The vintage style of the venue is sure to provide a perfect accompaniment to the programme of musical theatre classics and jazz standards.
“The Pheasantry is situated in a lovely historic building right on Kings Road and we’re delighted that The Girls From Oz are having their London premiere at one of London’s top cabaret venues. It’s very stylish and we know the show will be right at home there,” Ms Lane said.
These Aussie chicks are the perfect Easter Treat, so don’t miss out!
Sunday 20th April, Doors open at 6pm, 8pm show. £20
