It’s the final week to catch two of SA’s most popular cabaret performers, the legendary Michele Maxwell and debonair Roland Perold in their new show.
‘Show and Tell’, which has been positively received by audiences, is showing at the Kalk Bay Theatre from Wednesday to Saturday, May 28 to 31, at 8pm nightly.
Presented by ROLSKA Productions and directed by Paul Griffiths, the production takes a look at the highs and lows of showbiz. The glitz, the glam, and then the underbelly – the show and the tell – of the entertainment industry. With a light touch and lots of gusto it takes a look at some of the trials and tribulations that industry folk contend with every day.
Sharing a baby grand, Perold and Maxwell have compiled new arrangements of classic songs from Sondheim to Berlin to Randy Newman with a few rare gems thrown into the mix. There’s even some occasional ukulele and vocal percussion to excite die-hard musicophiles.
Maxwell is regarded as one of SA’s most respected and versatile artists – actress, singer, pianist, and much more, her career has spanned stage and screen here and internationally. She was involved in the early days of the Space, Market and Baxter Theatres, and has performed on the West End in London, in Boogie and Poppie Nongena. While in the UK, she appeared on TV shows such ‘Not the Nine O’Clock News’ and ‘The Jasper Carrot Show’.
Perold is no stranger to Kalk Bay Theatre, having performed in productions such as ‘I Love You’, ‘You’re Perfect’, ‘Now Change’ and ‘Edges’, and as the founder of ROLSKA Productions, produced the sold-out ‘Coward & Cole’ featuring himself and Godfrey Johnson.
