I hope this week is finding you well. Theatre performances are back in full swing with professional productions currently playing in Sydney and Melbourne. We are fortunate here in Australia to have theatre back. We send much love to our UK colleagues who performed to audiences for the first time in 14 months, last night and those whose shows will open in the next few months.

SHOW ANNOUNCEMENTS 

 

Elisa Colla

Thursday, June 17th will see Elisa Colla (My Fair Lady, Les Miserables) perform at Claire’s Kitchen in Sydney. Discover how Elisa found her own unique voice through following the seemingly disparate voices of her grandmothers: one a glamorous stage actress, the other a typical Italian Nonna, most at home in her kitchen.Elisa Colla ….possesses the most beautiful soprano voice, is beguiling, funny and flighty.” – Broadway World. Join Elisa as she sings the songs that have shaped her career and get a dose of whimsical wisdom along the way. Because, after all, nonnas always know best.
