I can safely say winter is wearing me down. Even on the warmer than usual days. Hibernation is all good and well, but sometimes even I have to admit there is more to life than soft pants, uggs and so bad it’s good reality TV.
I’m sure many of you feel the same. Nothing makes me change out of my less than socially acceptable clothing faster than live performances. My love of theatre is no secret, and living in Melbourne means there is always lots on offer. I don’t think I will ever get tired of going to the theatre. Even being in a foyer pre-show is something I love. Dance and song warm the heart almost as much as good ducted heating.
When I was offered the chance to see two upcoming shows I jumped at it. Nothing says Ha! Take that winter! Like a night out.
Hot Shoe Shuffle, featuring some of my favourite 1940s songs, including Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off, is performed in the tradition of Broadway musicals. It is one of the longest running multi-award winning musicals ever to be produced in Australia.
Stomp began way back in the 90s. Since then it has been encouraging people of all ages to bang on pots, rubbish bins, buckets… pretty much anything that can make a noise.
To say I can’t wait pretty much sums it up. Luckily for you I have double passes to each show to give away. I’d say that’s just the ticket!
First up: Hot Shoe Shuffle. I have two double passes to see this Broadway style show for Friday 9th August at 8pm at Her Majesty’s Theatre, Melbourne. Each double pass is valued at $210
Next up: Stomp! For this fast paced all action, no voice show I have two double passes for Tuesday 20th August, 8pm performance at Comedy Theatre. Valued at $158 for each double pass.
That’s eight tickets in total.
