NOEL, COLE AND GERTIE IN THE MIDDLE : RELIVING THE FLIRTY THIRTIES

Re-live the flirty thirties! Join us in the Reagh Bar of the historic Castlereagh Boutique Hotel for a delightful romp through one of our most popular shows.

With cocktail in hand, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped straight into the elegant art deco parlour of these supreme songwriters. It’s the ultimate atmosphere for “A Marvellous Party” where “Anything Goes!”.

Noël Coward and Cole Porter each discover that the other has been declared the “king of musical comedy” and that Gertrude Lawrence is the greatest interpreter of their work. Join Noël, Cole (and Gertie) as they sing and quip their way through their best loved songs to help the audience decide and declare which of them is, in fact, the king of musical comedy.

Tickets are $65 (+ booking fee) and include a fully costumed show and a cocktail on entry. Snacks, dinner and additional drinks are available to order throughout the evening.

Doors open 6.00 pm for pre-show dining. Show commences 7.00 pm. You’re welcome to stay for a post-show drink and chat with the cast.

Revival Cast: Starring the phenomenal John Martin on piano; a master of this genre. Accompanying John are the superb vocal and comic talents of seasoned Opera Bites performers Eliane Morel as Gertrude Lawrence, Simon Ward as Cole Porter and Murray Dahm as Noël Coward.
