As an extension to their weekly meeting at the Millman Street Resource Centre on Wednesday mornings, the Millman Street Singers have compiled two performance/sing-along shows to entertain at Over 50’s luncheon clubs and day centres. All that is required is a tuned piano, a dressing room and performance space. Featuring six singers including a compare the shows can be presented in two formats: one hour (no interval) or 90 minutes (plus interval.)
The shows are directed by a professional actor/singer and accompanied by a highly-skilled pianist. Audiences are invited to sing-along to well known songs and lyric sheets can be provided on request. The two shows are:
