'Que Sera Sera' - A Sentimental Journey
doris day show adelaide
Legendary Actress Doris Day

One of America's most popular actresses, the legendary Doris Day rose to fame in the 50s and 60s. She initially pursued a Hollywood dance career but her dreams were shattered when she was injured following a car accident.

She went on to forge a singing career, and with a son and two failed marriages behind her, was signed to Warner Brothers after convincing by her agent into taking a screen test.

Best known for her movie roles in Calamity Jane and Pillow Talk, audiences warmed to her beauty, delightful singing voice and bubbly personality. She released several hit records as well as hosted her own TV series, The Doris Day Show.

Since her fourth divorce in 1980, she retired from the limelight and devotes her life to the Doris Day Animal League in California, which advocates homes and proper care of household pets.

Dolly & Doris Day - A Sentimental Journey

You can discover Doris Day, one of the few surviving stars of Hollywood's 'golden age,' as Cabaret performer Dolly Lee re-launches her highly acclaimed Doris Day show at the Cabaret Fringe Festival 12 and 13 June 2015 at the Star Theatre.

Dolly was introduced to Doris Day as a child, watching re-runs of her movies while mother baked cakes on Saturdays as a family treat.

Performer Dolly Lee

A professional actor, singer, producer and impersonator, Dolly Lee has trained extensively in Adelaide and Sydney performing locally and abroad, both on stage, film and TV. Audiences will be taken on a journey as she pays tribute to Doris Day, relating a funny, sad and endearing story of her life, reminding us of the joy she bought into the world through her films and songs.

Doris Day introduced couture fashion through her movies

With a background in the fashion industry, Dolly will also highlight the influence Doris Day had on fashion during her era. Day was looked up to as a fashion icon, introducing the couture style through her movies with her especially designed dresses, hats, gloves and bags by prominent French designer Jean Louis.

Dolly has three successful cabaret shows to her credit - Dolly Is Doris Day, The Death and Life of Marilyn Monroe, and Linda Our Father and Me (a tribute to Linda Ronstadt) - all which were part of the Out Of The Square program. She also headlined The Swan Reach Country Music Festival with her Linda Ronstadt show.

Dolly is excited to re-mount the Doris Day show under the direction of Producer Lisa Lanzi for the 2015 Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival.

An emotional and heartfelt production, this acclaimed cabaret show is one to take your parents or grandparents to, or if you're looking for something nostalgic this would have to be my top pick of the Cabaret Fringe Festival season.

Just love the old standards. Melinda Schneider does a wonderful Doris. The songs are timeless.

I wanted to book for the show 2 weeks ago and it is all booked out. I wonder if there will be any more shows in the future. A real pity to miss out.
