Stars of Stage and Screen, Craig Urbani and Stephanie Baartman star in Music of The Night; a hit-filled musical revue that presents a special take on the very many lyricists who have adorned the musical notes of the iconic musical theatre composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber.
This is not a tribute show but rather a musical anthology of fifty- five years of words and music from the legendary lyricists, including Sir Tim Rice, Don Black , Sir Richard Stilgoe, Charles Hart, Glenn Slater and others who have penned a veritable treasure-chest of hits we have grown to love over the years.
Audiences will be taken on a dazzling journey of pure nostalgia with over 30 hits ranging from Any Dream Will Do and Memory to Don’t Cry For Me Argentina and As If We Never Said Goodbye, all sparkling with fresh new arrangements and showcasing the diverse mix and styles of the lyric wordsmiths who created these hits.
Instantly recognisable numbers will captivate the audience with songs from hit shows including Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Cats, Phantom of the Opera, Sunset Boulevard and other rarely unearthed surprises to keep everyone thoroughly entertained.
All packaged into a 90-minute gift box of musical treats.
The stellar cast setting the stage alight will be stage and screen star Craig Urbani (Rock of Ages, The Rocky Horror Show, Legacy), Carly Graeme (Starlight Express, The Boys in the Photograph), Stephanie Baartman (Getroud Met Rugby, Supersterre), and introducing the internet sensation, father-and-daughter duo Adrian & Emma-Jean Galliard .
Musical Staging is by Joubert Jonker, with Musical Direction by Clifford Cooper and lighting by Jane Gosnell .
The theatre has a strict No Mask, No Entry policy, making a trip to Centurion Theatre a stress-free experience .
