Toe tap­ping good time at The Jazz Club

The Jazz Club at the Mata­mata Mu­si­cal The­atre, Kea St Re­viewed by Abby Brown

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.
