Cabaret 39 Forever set to light up Eastbank

By John Lewis

Shepparton’s Eastbank Centre will be decked out with couches, candles and small tables for a night of fun cabaret and food next month.

Singer and comedian Amity Dry is bringing her ‘39 Forever’ show to Shepparton following successful seasons at the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy festivals.

Billed as the perfect girls night out, Ms Dry takes a time warp back to when fringe perms and ra-ra skirts were cool as she explores the pressure to stay forever young and asks whether 40 really is the new 30 — or perhaps only with the right Instagram filter.

Riverlinks’ manager Ken Cameron said the show weaves songs from the 1980s and 1990s through witty stories.

‘‘I think a lot of people will recognise themselves as she skates through her life, telling audiences of a girl too eager to grow up,’’ Mr Cameron said.

He said the performance promises to be a sparking, enthralling, laugh-out-loud night out. Support act is local singer Jessica Lorraine, performing from 7 pm.

39 Forever: Amity Dry is on at Shepparton’s Eastbank Centre on Thursday, September 7, from 7 pm.

Tickets are from $37 to $45, which includes a one-course meal, from 6.30 pm. To book, phone Riverlinks on 5832 9511 or go to www.riverlinksvenues.com.au/whats-on
