Thursday 30 March from 7pm to 8pm
Get ready to be transported back to the golden era of Hollywood!
The evening is a dazzling tribute to the legendary careers of MGM sweethearts, Kathryn Grayson, and Howard Keel, who graced the technicolor screen in timeless classics like "Show Boat" and "Lovely To Look At" - and that's just the beginning!
Feast your eyes and ears on "Make Believe", an enchanting cabaret featuring classical singers, Emily Turner and Ian Warwick, and pianist Nathaniel Kong. They'll take you on a musical journey through the unforgettable songs that Grayson and Keel brought to life in their vivid films, thrilling stage musicals, and concert and nightclub circuits.
The idea for this electrifying show was born from a passionate conversation about old Hollywood stars with friends over a virtual dinner, during the lockdown. And now, it's coming to life at Meraki Arts Bar, Sydney!
"There is something for everyone here in the recreation of fine 40s-50s movie-musical moments. The clear clever, nature of shows-to-screen in constant supply from the movie musical making machines of MGM and Warner in this wartime and post-war era are just the ticket for escapism in our current times." Paul Nolan, Sydney Arts Guide.
So, put on your best vintage outfit, and join us for a magical evening of old Hollywood glamour and pure, unadulterated entertainment. Don't forget to grab a drink - you'll need it!
