A Hollywood inspired cabaret, filled with show stopping songs from the golden age of film, tells an unknown history of under-recognised, Golden Globe winning actor: Donald O’Connor.

Loosely based around his life story, this cabaret, featuring Mikey Halcrow & Jens Radda uses numbers from O’Connors films to tell his surprising life story. Featuring elements of vaudeville and music theatre, this cabaret is filled with hits spanning 60 years of Hollywood and Broadway.

With songs by Irving Berlin & George Gershwin and original arrangements by Radda and Halcrow, audiences will be tapping their feet along with the cast for the entire 50 minutes.

“The story of Donald O’Connor deserves to be told…the end of the 50 minute show came to soon” ★★★★ The West Australian.
