Live Show Musical Extravaganza - Golden Age of Hollywood

This is a live show which will play at the Regal Theatre in Subiaco.

It is set in the Golden Age of Hollywood and is a spectacular show featuring special guest Australian, Rob Mills, who will bring back those well-loved tunes and music of Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and George Gershwin.

These were in an era when melody, rhythm and dance were all the rage and there were some wonderful performers in this period of time.

"Puttin' On the Ritz" is actually a song written by Irving Berlin, and he wrote it way back in 1927! It was first performed in 1929 and it was so typical of songs and music of that era.

Nowadays, the show is presented by Mellen Events and this is the first time it will tour Australia where it has come direct from London with a cast of West End stars.

The American production of Puttin' on the Ritz first toured the UK in 2014, and it broke box office records. Since then, the show has toured around the world and has been selling out.

There will be songs such as:

Cheek to Cheek
Alexander's Rag Time Band
Birth of the Blues
Night and Day
I Got Rhythm
Easter Parade
Puttin On The Ritz and many more

These famous and well-known songs of the Golden Age of Hollywood are performed live on stage with award winning singers and dancers, all dressed in glittering costumes.
