Swingin' on Broadway

With Gary Williams & Emma Kershaw

In SWINGIN’ ON BROADWAY, we give the big band treatment to some of the world’s best loved musical theatre shows like Anything Goes, The Sound of Music, The King & I, Annie, Kismet and Oklahoma!

Inspired by the great singers like Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald the show features the work of the great composers of popular song such as Johnny One Note from Rogers and Hart’s Babes in Arms, Jerry Herman’s Hello Dolly and Wonderful Guy from Rogers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific.

Expect some surprises too, with brand new arrangements of current Broadway hits like Spamalot and Mary

Poppins. Join Roderick Dunk, Gary Williams and Emma Kershaw for an unforgettable evening SWINGIN’ ON BROADWAY!
