Cabaret Goes Back to the 80s at Mosman
It’s 80’s cabaret time in Mosman in October / November 2018, with Mosman Musical Society’s latest production, Simply the Best, at Mosman Art Gallery, featuring a collection of 80’s hits. The society’s cabaret format has proved successful in the last four years, covering a variety of genres and periods.
Director Anthony Young, Assistant Director Susan Boyle, Producer Suzie Blackwell, Musical Director Philip Eames and Choreographer Lisa Frisina have loved working on the production, the hardest task being to narrow down the song list.
Director Anthony Young said, “Within the 80s there are a number of different genres, and we all had our own favourite artists and songs. We started with close to 100 songs, and narrowed it down to the selection we’ll be performing, which covers a variety of styles, and features well known songs from Australian, American and British artists. Think George, Whitney, Madonna, Cyndi, Prince, Cher, Kylie, AC/DC, Tina! Classic 80's songs with some performed as you've never heard them before.”
The cast features over 30 singers and dancers and a six piece live band. Performers come from all over Sydney, although many are local to Mosman. The photo in front of the 80’s
DeLorean features local members of the cast, production team and the society’s committee: Suzie Blackwell, Nicola Wilson, Jill Munt, Chloe Perik, Michelle Lorenz, Jess Linney, Alison Eaton.
There are six performances over two weekends. Book a table or single seats, enjoy a welcome glass of sparkling wine and cheese platter for each table included in the price, and bring your own wine to get into the spirit of the evening and a trip down memory lane! Audience members are encouraged to dress up in your best 80's outfit, with prizes for the best dressed (donated by Latham Cusack Property - Lower North Shore).
