Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - REAL ESTATE - Moya Stevens

LIVE en­ter­tain­ment is plen­ti­ful in Port Dou­glas at this time of year and one of the sea­son’s high­lights is The Ve­gas Leg­ends Show on at the Port Dou­glas Yacht Club on Sun­day, Au­gust 14.

Prin­ci­pal artists Kerry James and Wayne Wilt­shire head­line the show which fea­tures myr­iad im­pres­sions and 17 cos­tume changes.

Kerry James says that the show ap­peals to both young and old.

“The show is part mu­sic, part com­edy with lots of au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion,” she said.

Artists who ‘ap­pear’ in the show in­clude a vast range of celebri­ties from Dean Martin, Frank Si­na­tra to Bette Mi­dler, Liza Minelli and Sonny and Cher.

“Cri­tiques of our show in­clude phrases such as ‘mu­si­cally ex­cit­ing, rau­cously funny’ and ‘some­times a lit­tle bit crazy’,” Kerry said.

Kerry has been tour­ing the show for the past 15 years in Aus­tralia and Asia and Wayne joined 5 years ago.

“Wayne is from Wilt­shire, in the UK, and has worked all over the world and is truly an amaz­ing per­former – par­tic­u­larly his im­pres­sion­ist act,” she said.

After per­form­ing to­gether for the past 5 years, ac­cord­ing to Kerry, their show is ex­tremely tight and pol­ished and fea­tures a great deal of com­edy.

Pre­sented as a din­ner and show event, it has all the hall­marks of a great night out.

Ac­cord­ing to club man­ager Richard Sta­ple­ton the pur­pose of stag­ing these en­ter­tain­ment events is to take ad­van­tage of the Club’s venue and great lo­ca­tion.

“We aim to have a cou­ple of big shows each year,” Richard said, “and this year we are fea­tur­ing The Ve­gas Leg­ends Show, Rock the Yacht in Septem­ber and Dave Hughes, co­me­dian, early Novem­ber.”

“The shows ap­peal to both mem­bers and vis­i­tors,” he said.

Tick­ets for The Ve­gas Leg­ends Show are avail­able for $35 each from the Club.
