Beautiful Tasmania is known for its lively musical scene and this upcoming October is certainly no exception, with one extremely special event taking place.
Get ready for Australia's coast to coast tour of 'In the Mood', a retro swinging, singing, dancing and Big Band Orchestra extravaganza of hits. You can catch it here in Tasmania, when it takes place at the Wrest Point Entertainment Centre, Sandy Bay, in Hobart on October 6.
This show, featuring singers and dancers from New York, is celebrating its 20th season. Their last tour in 2011 was a massive success, even selling out its first run of 32 shows. That means you should mark your calendar and get your ticket as soon as possible, to avoid the disappointment of missing out this time around.
In the Mood was born from the magic and mysterious era of the 1940s, when the world was at the height of electrifying swing music and a new culture of boogying down.
In the Mood brings this back to life with romantic ballads contrasted with upbeat jives, dazzling costume and stage decorations along with the incredibly stirring music. Frank Sinatra, Glen Miller, Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey are just some of the artists whose hits are represented.
Alex Sanchez has choreographed this show, bringing it his own golden touch and extensive repertoire of experience. Previously he has choreographed ten musicals for Broadway so you just know that this one is going to be special.
Do you want to head back in time to the 1940s, perhaps as if you were watching Sinatra in the flesh? Then head to In the Mood and you'll have a front row seat into the past.
