On Mother’s Day, Sunday 10th May, MEMO Music Hall will host the unique concert, “Here’s to the Ladies”, a special event celebrating the great moments of Musical Theatre, sung by some of Melbourne’s most celebrated leading ladies.
The all-star line up of RHONDA BURCHMORE (Mamma Mia, Mame) ALINTA CHIDZEY (Chicago, West Side Story) LUCY DURACK (Wicked, Shrek) AMANDA HARRISON (Wicked, We Will Rock You) and QUEENIE VAN DE ZANDT (Funny Girl, Thoroughly Modern Millie) will relive the most famous moments of Musical Theatre, especially for Mother’s Day.
Producer Simon Myers was among the first to embrace the live streaming technology, with the MEMO Music Hall already streaming the hugely successful evening of ‘Kate Ceberano in concert’ in early April. With Renegade Films, the producer aims to bring the immediacy of live performance into houses all over the country.
“In this age, having people recording songs from their houses is wonderful but nothing beats the energy of live performance and the elegance of a great venue like MEMO.”
Music Theatre director, Tyran Parke (Barnum, Follies) and Musical Director Stephen Gray (Priscilla, South Pacific) have assembled an intimate, elegant concert, celebrating musical theatre and the great Australian talent, famous for interpreting it.
“Having all of these women on the same bill is a tour de force and, though socially distanced, the energy and warmth of the music will provide a much-needed boost of hope on a very special day. Where else will you see stars reliving their acclaimed performances from Funny Girl, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Boy From Oz and of course, Wicked? This remarkable line up makes it truly thrilling, very poignant and a perfect gift to share with mums, young and old.”
