Glit­ter, glad rags and dance shoes

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

GLISSADE back to the Golden Age of Hol­ly­wood with song and dance ex­trav­a­ganza Put­tin’ On the Ritz.

Back by pop­u­lar de­mand and glid­ing its way across Aus­tralia, the glit­ter­ing cos­tumes and slick stag­ing will show­case a 16-strong stellar cast of vo­cal­ists and dancers di­rect from London’s West End.

The cast, in­clud­ing Aus­tralia’s own Ta­mara Eden, have just be­gun re­hearsals of time­less clas­sics by Irv­ing Ber­lin, Cole Porter and Ge­orge Gersh­win, which Ms Eden said mu­si­cal theatre fans could look for­ward to.

“The mu­sic of the show dic­tates the style so ex­pect to see a lot of beau­ti­ful ball­room danc­ing and big brassy high en­ergy tap num­bers,” Ms Eden said.

As the only Aus­tralian singer in the cast Ms Eden said she was look­ing for­ward to show­ing her Bri­tish cast-mates “our won­der­ful coun­try”.

Put­tin’ On the Ritz will come to Caloun­dra Events Cen­tre on June 20. Visit theevents­cen­tre.com.au to pur­chase tick­ets.
