Shows: Wayne Scott Ker­mond and all that jazz ....

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY CONTENTS -

THE Gold Coast Jazz & Blues Club presents Candy Man cre­ator and star, song and dance man Wayne Scott Ker­mond, in con­cert to­mor­row – backed by an eight-piece orches­tra.

The fourth-gen­er­a­tion per­former (his par­ents were part of the Las Vegas club­land cabaret boom of the ’70s; his grand­fa­ther and un­cles toured the Tivoli cir­cuit in the ’50s as com­edy act the Ker­mond Broth­ers) has been tread­ing the boards he was 12, wow­ing mu­si­cal greats such as Sammy Davis Jr and An­thony War­low with his smooth voice and sharp moves.

More than a triple threat, Scott Ker­mond can sing, dance, act, write and pro­duce. A five-time Mo Award win­ner, his long list of stand­out roles in­cludes the charm­ing Cosmo Brown in Sin­gin’ In The Rain and the ti­tle role in Candy Man, his trib­ute mu­si­cal based on the life and mu­sic of Davis, his muse.

More re­cently, Scott Ker­mond won rave re­views – and a Green Room Award – for his role as morally bank­rupt Broad­way pro­ducer Max Bi­a­ly­stock in The Pro­duc­tion Com­pany’s Melbourne sea­son of The Pro­duc­ers.

He has also worked ex­ten­sively in film and TV, sup­ply­ing the move­ment to the char­ac­ters Love Lace (voiced by Robin Wil­liams) and Mem­phis as a prin­ci­pal mo­tion-cap­ture per­former in the Os­car­win­ning fea­ture film Happy Feet.

Scott Ker­mond’s Jazz & Blues Club show will see him per­form songs from Candy Man, Sin­gin’ In The Rain, Guys And Dolls and other shows he has starred in, backed by an eight-piece orches­tra with mu­si­cal di­rec­tion by Ed Wil­son, of Daly/Wil­son Big Band fame.

The Gold Coast Jazz & Blues Club presents Wayne Scott Ker­mond in the Par­adise Show­room, at The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast, to­mor­row at 7.30pm. Tick­ets are $21 mem­bers, $26 guests. Call 5588 4000 to book.
