Riverside Theatres Digital will present Welcome to the Masque starring Helpmann Award winning actress Genevieve Lemon and legendary composer and musical director Max Lambert in concert. Welcome to the Masque will stream live to audiences’ homes in a one-show only performance from Riverside Theatres in Parramatta on Sunday 23 August 2020.
Welcome to the Masque promises to be a night of laughter and song to remember. Masque was a form of amateur dramatic entertainment, popular among the nobility in 16th and 17th-century England, it consisted of dancing and acting performed by masked players.
The lockdown has been hard on everyone, and Genevieve Lemon (Billy Elliott, The Dressmaker, STC’s Miracle City) has had a lot of time for self-reflection: Am I any good? Am I happy with my lot? Does my bum look big in this (mask)?
These and many other burning questions will be examined by Genevieve and Max Lambert (Sydney Olympics Opening Ceremony, The Boy from Oz, Miracle City). Genevieve will be singing her much loved favourite songs by vocal legends Joni Mitchell, Carole King and more. Joining her on stage is Hair and Make Up Artist Lauren Proietti.
The team at Riverside Theatres have worked hard to create Riverside Theatres Digital, a brand-new unique viewing experience, ensuring audiences can stay connected and entertained over this time. The concerts are fully live multi-camera events, streaming live from Riverside Theatres into your home. This concert will be available once only on YouTube.
