This June, head Downtown for a journey through the songs and life story of Petula Clark as Musical Mornings returns to Geelong Performing Arts Centre.
This hand-clapping, toe-tapping show is a tribute to the woman who, at the height of Beatlemania, wrestled the Fab Four for the number one position on the music charts – and came out on top!
In the swinging 60s Petula repeatedly topped the charts in every corner of the globe with hits including Colour My World, I Know a Place, My Love, Happy Heart, Don’t Sleep in the Subway and of course Downtown.
Melissa Langton, music theatre favourite and star of the internationally renowned girl-group The Fabulous Singlettes, brings us the incredible songs and the fascinating story of one of Britain’s most cherished entertainers.
Langton is well known for performances in Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Miserables, We Will Rock You and more recently, Victorian Opera’s Into the Woods. Her award-winning cabaret shows have been performed in New York, Dublin, Auckland as well as around Australia.
Downtown - The Songs of Petula Clark will be in The Playhouse on June 13 and 14.
Tickets for all Musical Mornings concerts are $20 each, available from the Box Office on 5225 1200 or online at www.gpac.org.au
Musical Mornings concerts are sponsored by Tuckers Funeral and Bereavement Services and include free morning tea before the show.
