30 something @ riverside theatres parramatta


1939 New years Eve, it will soon be 1940, and the music begins just one hour before midnight.

Phil Scott and Catherine Alcorn hugely entertain with their deliciously localised/improved lyrics with its music originally written/performed by Fats Waller, Irving Berlin, Cab Colloway, Phil Collins, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga, Prince, etc.

Experience a fabulous night of 1939 Kings Cross magical cabaret, fully entertaining joyride back in time. Most especially all the songs from the singers, who will not be born until the 70s and 80s and 90s.

Real Cabaret with audience members seated on the stage, and eleven tables each with two chairs. Unique audience participation, with three musical quiz question jingles to solve.

The drama and comedy of the times, social paradigms, newspaper headlines, Hitler and Australian Politicians, the war that will be called the Second World War, Queanbeyan, radio advertising jingles, etc. Celebrate the long history of Sydney via this unique cabaret lounge act. Highly Recommended.
