Jazzing it up: Shepparton Theater Arts Group sing Gershwin’s songbook
With a little cabaret and a little cabernet, the winter blues are sworn.
Shepparton Theater Arts Group presents a spectacle in every sense of the word with its new performance, STAG sings the Gershwin Song Book.
The new concert series is inspired by one of the most popular composers of the 20th century, George Gershwin.
“We are transforming the Bakehouse into an intimate pop-up jazz club and delivering soulful new music, which will hopefully take the winter blues away,” said STAG Publicity Manager Nicky Pummeroy.
In a flow of jazz and pizzazz, all three shows will be led by emcee Laura Varapodio, as the music winds through a catalog of Hollywood and Broadway delights.
STAG names Cindy Doherty, Stevie Renee, Stefania Panella and Robbie Maher will be joined by hit musos Wade Gregory and Brian Matthews, all backed by master Steve Condron.
“The songs themselves – if anyone’s a Gershwin fan they’ll know they’re classic and just for a nice night out,” Ms Pummeroy said.
The show will take place at the Bakehouse Black Box Theater at 17 Wheeler St; Five-seat cabaret seats are available to the public, with drinks at bar prices.
The shows take place on Friday June 24 at 7 p.m., Saturday June 25 at 6 p.m. – intentionally earlier so that the public can see White Night – and a session on Sunday June 26 at 2 p.m.
