Concert to relive magic of Sixties
Friday, 19th March, 2010
What were you doing in the 1960s?
This year is the 40th anniversary of the "Swinging Sixties" so local singing teacher Marilyn Harris and her pupils plan to take locals back in time this weekend with their concert "Swingin' Sixties" at Theatre 44.
The concert promises to be very entertaining with songs of Peter, Paul and Mary, Dionne Warwick, Elvis Presley, the Bee Gees, and of course the rage of the decade, The Beatles. Also presented will be some of the quirky hits of Lonnie Donegan and Rolf Harris.
The performers range in age from 5 to 50-plus and all have been working hard to perfect their items. Proceeds from the concert will be used to replace the very worn carpet in the theatre. The canteen will be open and if there's even the chance of a cup of freshly brewed coffee from the theatre's new coffee machine.
There are two performances, tomorrow night at 7.30 and Sunday at 2pm. Tickets are available only at the door and cost $8 for adults and $5 concession. Because this is the beginning of Seniors Week, all Seniors Card holders will only be charged $3.
