Christmas in Tinseltown with Simone Craddock
Saturday 19 December 7.00pm
You must remember this…
A girl blown over the rainbow, lover’s hands on a potter’s wheel, a boy left home alone at Christmas…
Hollywood, la la land of the glittering and glamorous. Since the first talkie in 1927, we’ve laughed and cried, lusted and feared, loved and dreamed…and the songs from our favourite movies have become the soundtrack of our lives.
From annual traditions to forgotten treasures of yesteryear, the comedy giants to the sirens of the silver screen…this holiday season, take a sentimental journey through the iconic scenes and songs that tug on your heart strings, trigger joy and reaffirm the very meaning of Christmas.
The nostalgia of High Society, White Christmas and Singin’ in the Rain, meets the contemporary thrills of Love Actually, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Bad Santa and more, in this technicolour celebration complete with christmas crackers, terrible jokes, festive giveaways and wonderful music!
Simone is joined by award-winning, Australian jazz luminaries, Harry Mitchell at the piano, Alistair Peel on double bass and Chris Tarr on drums.
Simone’s dual career in music and theatre has taken her across Asia, Europe and The States. The WA born Singer & Actress has been based in London for the last 20 years, performing in Europe’s most prestigious venues, including Ronnie Scotts, Houses of Parliament and Australia House. She has a presence born of leading roles on the West End stage & International tours of Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar, Dirty Dancing and Hello Dolly! Having already played the Edinburgh Fringe & London Jazz Festival, Simone was thrilled to return home last year, winning the 2020 Music & Musicals Award for her Perth Fringe World debut, Nina, Love Simone. Simone is proud to reprise this performance at The Ellington during Fringe World 2021 and will also present her world premiere of Ella & Louis!, collaborating with the 2019 Music & Musicals Award winners, Adam Hall & Adrian Galante.
