ONE for the ladies and two of Australia’s finest classical guitarists are on the menu at Coffs Harbour’s Jetty Memorial Theatre over the coming week.
Ladies Night, on October 17, is the story of four unemployed guys, motivated by The Chippendales to form a male stripping act in order to make fast cash.
They pitch the notion to a local club owner and take lessons from a slightly shop-worn dance instructor with a heart-of-gold in all manner of things, including what women really want from a male stripper (and how to deliver it).
Starring Ken James (Skippy) and Steven Tandy (The Sullivans), Ladies Night features average blokes attempting to strip to some familiar tunes – Bad to the Bone, Smooth Operator and Wild Thing to name just a few.
According to the producers, “Ladies Night will leave you hyperactive and ready to party! It’s the kind of show that you can take your granny to…. cheeky fun, a little bit naughty – and a damn good giggle!”
Then on Friday, October 19, Slava and Leonard Grigoryan, regarded as Australia’s finest guitar duo, will be performing music from their latest album The Seasons.
These classical masters also take the guitar into genres such as Latin, jazz, folk and contemporary music.
They will perform a selection of their favourite pieces, including compositions from Brazil and works that display their remarkable improvisational skills.
Don’t miss an act the New York Times described as “guitar playing of uncommon originality and authority”.
