Morn­ing melodies with Jackie Love

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

EX­U­BER­ANT, sen­sa­tional, charis­matic and an ex­cep­tional stage talent.

These are just some of the words au­di­ences have used to de­scribe ac­tress, record­ing artist, pro­ducer, co­me­dian, host and en­ter­tainer Jackie Love.

Jackie will be per­form­ing at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre to­day (Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 20) with her new show The Look of Love.

The show in­cludes a med­ley of songs from clas­sics such as Phan­tom of the Opera, South Pa­cific and Cabaret to name a few.

Her ren­di­tion of Cole Porter, Gersh­win, Burt Bacharach and Sammy Davis Ju­nior hits is sure to take fans on an ex­cit­ing and mem­o­rable mu­si­cal jour­ney.

Jackie’s il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer be­gan when she moved from her na­tive Perth to Syd­ney in the early 1980’s. Within the year she ap­peared on the Lo­gie Awards and the late Sammy Davis Ju­nior chose her as a guest artist for his Aus­tralian na­tional tour.

This was so suc­cess­ful that Davis sub­se­quently in­vited her to ap­pear as his “spe­cial guest star” in the United States.

“She’s des­tined to be a very big star I feel,” he said.

Since then, Jackie has per- formed at con­certs in the UK, USA, French Riviera, Monte Carlo, Fiji, Bali and more.

Her ac­co­lades in­clude royal com­mand per­for­mances for Queen El­iz­a­beth II and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Princess Diana, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent and Swe­den’s King and Queen Gus­tav.

Af­ter ap­pear­ing on TV spe­cials in Ger­many, Spain, the UK and Sin­ga­pore, Jackie’s love for the theatre be­came her next chal­lenge.

She sur­prised au­di­ences and crit­ics alike with her flare for com­edy, for which she re­ceived crit­i­cal ac­claim.

To­day’s show starts

at 11am, with morn­ing tea from 10am. Tick­ets cost $12.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to book, phone the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre on 4945 2312.

LOOK OF LOVE: Jackie Love will per­form at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre's Morn­ing Melodies show to­day (Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 20).
