He's mellow, rich and husky, oak-aged with an intoxicating aroma.
She's fresh and zesty with a sharp bite and a definite kick.
Together they make a double shot of musical comedy that we call:
The Weekend Comedy Cocktail - world class creative comedy made right here, right now.
"Vance Fontaine: Command Performance"
Vance Fontaine (Greg Ellis) is a multi-talented crooner who combines the electric stage presence of Ray Woolf with the raw sexual charisma of John Rowles. Together with his four-piece band, The Peculiar Sensations, Fontaine takes you on a whirlwind journey through his long career. Bring your suggestions and your imagination because if you name it, it becomes part of Vance’s story (at least for that night) and if it’s got a genre – from bebop to dubstep –the Sensations can play it, and Vance probably created it.
“…he never misses a beat, expertly improvising one story after another with incredible dexterity” - The Dominion Post
“The genius of Greg Ellis is fully proved in this show. Who knew he was a fabulous singer alongside all his other skills?” - Theatreview.org.nz
"Miss Fletcher Sings the Blues"
Miss Fletcher (Hayley Sproull) describes herself as a ‘motivator, inspirer, teacher’. Spend an evening in her class while Miss Fletcher at her trusty piano tackles the big issues. The world issues. All the issues. A little bit quirky, a little bit naughty, and strangely educational, her songs include ‘Puberty Express’, ‘Key Changes for Africa’ and ‘Moustache Paradise’. Miss Fletcher employs her musical ability to obliviously tread through topics such as racism, homosexuality and Zambia, until her inappropriate escapades lead to a passionate crescendo, where the term ‘do as I say, not as I do’ could never be more fitting.
“…as brilliantly performed as it is conceived…glorious in its own special way” - Theatreview.org.nz
“…original, innovative and very funny…not to be missed.” - The Dominion Post
