Sunraysia residents will be able to revisit the romance, glamour and elegance of Hollywood’s most iconic song and dance partnership – Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers – during a special performance at Mildura Arts Centre next month.
Cheek to Cheek – A Tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers will be performed at MAC on Thursday 10 October as a key highlight of this year’s Mildura Senior’s Festival.
The performance will feature some of the most electrifying dance sequences ever conceived on film, brought to life on the MAC stage.
Councillor for Arts and Culture Jason Modica said the show would include classic songs including the Academy Award-winning Night and Day, Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off, Top Hat, White Tie and Tails, They Can’t Take that Away from Me and The Way You Look Tonight.
“This is a rare chance to experience the flair and skill of two silver screen legends recreated live on stage by two of Australia’s brightest young music theatre performers, Cristina D’Agostino and Glenn Hill,” Cr Modica said.
Cristina has appeared in many professional Australian and international musicals, including West Side Story, Moon Shadow, King Kong, Singing in the Rain and the recent production of Jersey Boys. She has a Green Room Award for Best Featured Ensemble Performance in Guys and Dolls.
Glenn Hill has similarly appeared in a host of professional Australian and international musicals, including We Will Rock You, MAMMA MIA!, Hello Dolly and Sweet Charity. Glenn has just completed the Australian tour of Jersey Boys as Bob Crewe.
