While her roles in the stage musicals Anything Goes, Chicago, Oliver, Into The Woods, Company, Cabaret, A Little Night Music, Call Me Madam and Sweeney Todd established her as an award-winning musical theatre star, Geraldine has also won enormous acclaim for her roles in plays such as Steel Magnolias, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll and Don’s Party;
Geraldine’s television credits include House Husbands, Home and Away, All Saints and the films Careful He Might Hear You, Summerfield and The Wog Boy. Her extensive recording output includes the first solo Sondheim album, which gained her worldwide acclaim.
Turner’s Tune will be Geraldine’s first cabaret appearance in Sydney in over ten years. The evening of songs from her celebrated career, peppered with show business anecdotes and stories (and there are some great stories to tell), this is a rare opportunity to see one of Australia’s most beloved stage performers, in the intimate setting of the Hayes Theatre Co.
“I’ve always loved the intimacy of performing in cabaret. I spent some very happy times performing at places like The Tilbury, Regent Supper Club and the Hayden Orpheum,” says Geraldine Turner.
“It’s wonderful to see that cabaret is making a comeback at the Hayes and I’m very much looking forward to performing there. Over the years I’ve been asked to appear in cabaret, but now the time is right to present a new show in Sydney’s hottest new venue.”
Directed by Caroline Stacey and with Musical Direction by Brad Miller, Turner’s Turn is produced by Enda Markey, producer of Blood Brothers (currently playing at Hayes Theatre Co) as well as the international tour of Boubil and Schonberg’s, Do You Hear The People Sing.
