Toe tapping good time at The Jazz Club

Talented singers had the audience at The Jazz Club tapping their toes, singing along and even getting up and dancing to the live 1950’s rock and roll.
The audience were amused by the interaction that started as soon as they entered the foyer of the Matamata Musical Theatre on November 15. Any male not wearing a tie was given one to wear for the night.
The ‘bridge club girls’, who tell their husbands they are going to play bridge but then hang out at The Jazz Club, also entertained with songs and asked audience members if they knew how to play bridge and could explain the various terminologies so they had good cover husbands.
Throughout the night the characters pulled any audience members that looked enthusiastic about dancing up on to the floor that was installed for the show.
Some audience members, especially Sharon Holmes’ acting students, got up and danced of their own accord.
She also gave them a masterclass with her rendition of House of the Rising Sun.
The Jazz Club season: November 18-21 and 25-28. Tickets are $50 per person including a two course dinner from The Storyteller.
