Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun at Phelan Groovy.

[Apologies to Paul Simon for that slight adaptation]

But there will be no adaptation to the meaning of 'a great night out' when the star of Dirty Dancing, Kurt Phelan, returns with his brand new solo cabaret, Phelan Groovy. After selling-out his shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and New York City, Kurt has come home and now intends to spend some time entertaining his fellow Queenslanders.

This awesome new cabaret can be enjoyed at Studio 53, Brisbane Powerhouse, 119 Lamington Street, New Farm for three nights from Thursday, 1 December until Saturday, 3 December, 2016. The show will commence at 8.45pm.

Tickets for this fantastic show can be obtained here and cost $28 for full price and $25 for a concessional ticket plus a booking fee.

Phelan Groovy is an hour of full-on entertainment that will leave your sides sore from laughing and legs exhausted from foot-tapping. The cabaret is a seamless blend of comedy, music, dancing and singing where even the audience joins Kurt in a singalong.

There will be something for everybody with the music coming from many different genres including rock and musical theatre try and keep a count of how many songs include the word 'feeling' in their lyrics.

Although the show is part personal memoir by Kurt and he shares some of his life's oh-so-personal experiences, he does so with a pleasingly honest and beguiling approach that helps to make the night an exuberant and up-lifting experience.

Before branching out with his own cabaret Kurt has been a regular in Australian stage musicals. If you have already seen him in such major musicals as, Singin' In The Rain, Priscilla, Queen of The Dessert and Dirty Dancing you will know he has the presence and talent to entertain all manner of audiences using his expansive range of entertainment abilities.

Get in here quickly and book your seats to make sure you don't miss out on this fabulous show.
