More than 40 singers, dancers, actors and backstage crew have been rehearsing since January to create the Donald Simpson’s Theatrical’s annual show entitled The Journey.
Now in its 22nd year, this show promises a spectacle of colour, instant costume changes, swirling dances and memorable music.
It is described as a musical tour from Bing Crosby to Lady Gaga, with a special moment for a massive Australian finale.
Donald Simpson’s Peter Phillips said the show had energy and the power of a large number of quality voices.
“The show will do two things for the audience,” he said.
“They’ll sing all the words and walk out loaded with memories, whatever age. This is a production to trigger your emotions and to move your feet. And it will.
“The audience doesn’t have to know just how much physical and mental effort lies behind what they see.
“They will just enjoy the ambience of the moment.”
The show is the work of the producer/director Janette Sheehan who is acclaimed for tackling complex productions with attention to detail.
“This show is breathtaking in its complexity and every piece of choreography, every nuance of the songs are Janette’s ideas turned into stunning outcomes,” Peter said.
The show will be staged at 2pm on August 19, 20, 26, 27 at the Donald Simpson Centre. Tickets are $25. Book on 3821 1089.
