I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be part of the Group Launch of this BRAND NEW Australian musical. I love going to theatres and I like musical plays even if I don’t have a talent for singing.
Anyway, the launch was in Sydney Lyric Theatre and was surprised that the theatre is currently on-going a renovation. We were escorted to the stage where the director and the stars will give us a sneak peak of the musical.
The launch started on time and they gave us a brief background of the upcoming show with hosts from Smooth FM and of course the director, Simon Phillips kept the crowd entertained.
This Brand New Australian musical, DREAM LOVER, is about the legendary American singer, songwriter and actor Bobby Darin. Jam-packed with hit tunes from the ‘50s and ‘60s, including Splish-Splash, Mack The Knife, Beyond The Sea and the multi-million seller Dream Lover, the show illuminates the fragility and might of the bright-blazing star. The play stars David Campbell who will take the role of Bobby Darin and Hannah Fredericksen as his movie star wife Sandra Dee. It features a sensational cast with over 40 on stage including an 18-piece big band!
To be honest, the songs they mentioned didn’t ring a bell to me. However, when David Campbell and the 18-pice big band started playing some songs, I actually know the song “Beyond the Sea”! My boyfriend was even surprised he knows “Dream Lover”! Hahaha. We were teasing each other the whole time ‘coz we didn’t realise that we knew Bobby Darin. He is not fond of going to musical plays but I think he’d love to see this Dream Lover musical. He probably is an old soul who loves the music of that era. You think?
This extraordinary story of Bobby Darin is staged by the acclaimed director Simon Phillips (Priscilla Queen of the Desert), DREAM LOVER is more than a rags to riches story as it reveals the determination, yearning and heaven-sent talents of the Grammy Award-winning boy from the Bronx.
After the musical showcase, David Campbell and Hannah Fredericksen were kind enough to have some meet and greet. So I took the opportunity to get their autograph and even took a photo with them.
I surprisingly had fun and even my boyfriend agrees. I can’t wait to see the musical coming from 30 September 2016 at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, The Star. Lucky I’m based in Sydney because this show is ONLY available in Sydney!
I even got a goody bag from the launch. How awesome, right?!
Oh, wait there’s more!
I’ll be giving away “1 Double Pass” to see a preview showing of Dream Lover in September 2016.
