Dance show at Blacktown Workers

DANCER Wayne Scott Kermond aims to get people up and dancing to popular hits from the 1930s to now in his latest show, Song & Dance Fever, at Blacktown Workers Club on Saturday.

"The show has a variety of things in it like musical theatre, jazz, dancing and we have songs from the '30s to today," he said.

"The theme is swing cabaret and a lot of the songs are popular songs to dance to. It'll have all those classic songs with a swing vibe that everyone will know."

This year Kermond has starred on stage in Candy Man and Hairspray at Riverside Theatres, The Pirates of Penzance, Hot Shoe Shuffle, Swing Baby Swing and others.

He said Song & Dance Fever was unlike those shows.

"We wanted to create a variety show so we could get away from the theatre shows we were working on," he said.

"I love having a live band and my son is one of the dancers in the show."

Also on stage is singer and actor Leigh Archer, known for her roles in Grease: The Arena Spectacular, the Australian and Asian tour of Cats and West Side Story and others.

The Musical Theatre Dancers and the Ed Wilson Band will also perform.

Kermond said the show could take audiences on a trip down memory lane. "It's songs people will know. These songs could've played during significant moments in their lives like meeting their partners or other special times."

Tickets: $7.50 (members), $10.50 (visitors).
