TODD’S

A PERFECT

10

As Todd McKenney takes to the stage singing the songs of

our favourite ‘Boy fromOz’ Peter Allen, the shoe is on the

other foot for the judge we all love to hate on

Dancing with

the Stars

. And he doesn’t mind one bit – he

playfully encourages fans to bring their

own scorecard to rate his performance.

By all accounts he has nothing to worry

about – his high energy performance

so far has been given a perfect 10 by

audiences who can’t get enough of

this cheeky entertainer

reprising the role that

made him a household

name almost 20 years ago

in the original production

of

The Boy fromOz

. Ever

since he launched his album

Todd McKenney Sings Peter Allen

in

2013 he’s been playing sell-out shows

across the country. However, the show

is not just a playlist of Peter Allen

hits. There are songs from other

musicals, stories and anecdotes

about Allen and some goss

from

Dancing with the Stars

.

Todd McKenney sings Peter

Allen at the KedronWavell

Services Club, Chermside,

3 and 4 June. Tickets

$63.67 plus fees at

Homage to

GOLDEN AGE

Strictly Gershwin

is a spectacular tribute to the big band era of

the 1930s, the songs of George and Ira Gershwin and the silver

screen magic of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. It’s Queensland

Ballet like you’ve never seen them before, dancing to such

classics as ‘An American in Paris’, ‘Someone to Watch Over

Me’, ‘ ’S Wonderful’, ‘I Got Rhythm’ and more, accompanied

by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, a jazz orchestra and

glamorous costumes from the English National Ballet. From 27

May to 4 June, at Lyric Theatre, QPAC, South Brisbane. Tickets

from $40 to $140 plus fees, see

www.queenslandballet.com.au
