Southern Belles - show at Memo Music Hall Sunday Oct 30th
The Southern Belles was a sell-out at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in June.
Co-Artistic Director of the Festival, Ali McGregor, had appeared in an earlier version of the show programmed for Morning Melodies at the Victorian Arts Centre in 2011.
She thought the show could be re-worked as a cabaret production with the addition of a narrative, and it was performed there to great acclaim by Jane Clifton, Nichaud Fitzgibbon and Carla Lippis.
Clare Moore (drums) and Rosie Westbrook (bass) shared Musical Direction of the show for the Adelaide season as they do for the MEMO Music Hall performance – appearing with a seven-piece band including a high-powered brass section.
Nichaud Fitzgibbon and Jane Clifton, who were both in the original Victorian Arts Centre season, are joined by Rebecca Barnard for the MEMO Music Hall performance on 30 October.
