Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE - EMMA CHAD­WICK

CABARET singer Jen­nifer Ward- Lealand will bring back fun and glam­our with her per­for­mance Fall­ing in Love Again at the Civic The­atre next month.

The show is part of the Aus­tralian Fes­ti­val of Cham­ber Mu­sic and also fea­tures mu­si­cians Grant Win­ter­burn on pi­ano and Aaron Cod­del on bass.

Ward- Lealand, an ac­tor and singer has worked ex­ten­sively in the­atre, film, tele­vi­sion, and ra­dio in New Zealand for 30 years.

In the early ’ 90s she moved to Aus­tralia to ap­pear in the com­edy TV series Full Frontal.

The songstress said she plays trib­ute to the iconic Mar­lene Di­et­rich with songs by Cole Porter, Edith Piaf, Frederic Hol­lan­der and Pete Seeger in her show.

Beau­ti­fully lit and fea­tur­ing an exquisite recre­ation of one of Di­et­rich’s fa­mous gowns, this crit­i­cally ac­claimed cabaret show vividly cap­tures her time­less style and glam­our.

The per­for­mance is on Au­gust 1 at 8pm at the Townsville Civic The­atre. Tick­ets are Adult $ 64, Con­ces­sion $ 60, and AFCM mem­bers $ 57 and are avail­able at Tick­et­shop.
