My gift is my song and this one’s for you…
Tales of heartbreak and hope, of pain and passion, of first loves and final moments, weave through Elton John’s iconic songbook in a provocative new production.
Your Song celebrates the unforgettable music of megastar Elton John and the memorable moments it evokes for everyday people, reimagining Elton’s biggest songs including Candle in the Wind, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, I’m Still Standing, Benny and the Jets and Tiny Dancer using powerful stories and personal experiences shared by real-life people.
Deftly fusing these intimate associations with Elton’s worldwide hits is a powerhouse cast including Andy Cook (Chicago, Priscilla), Marcus Corowa (Bran Nue Dae, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), Luke Kennedy (There’s Something About Music, Swing on This) and Irena Lysiuk (The IsoLate Late Show, Tosca), backed by a live band featuring Mik Easterman (drums), Michael Manikus (keys) and OJ Newcomb (bass).
Your Song marks The Little Red Company artistic director Naomi Price’s directorial debut for the company and will be the first major production staged in the revamped Judith Wright Arts Centre following a three-year closure.
Premiering 22 April – 1 May 2021 at Judith Wright Arts Centre.
