RHUMBELOW THEATRE LOVES A SLOW TUNE
Singer, actress, pianist, choir director and vocal coach Judith Hawthorn reveals her passion for Musical Theatre performance in her new show “I Love A Show Tune!” celebrating her life in music with a dazzling array of classic Broadway show songs.
Accompanied by Jacques Heyns on piano, Judith transports her audience to the wonderful world of Musical Theatre with much-loved hits from The Sound of Music and Oklahoma to My Fair Lady and Beauty and the Beast, throwing in her own nostalgic salute to the great Victor Borge for good measure!
Devised and directed by Paul Spence, Judith’s love for Musical Theatre songs shines through as she shares her childhood musical memories. Shot through with comedic flair, “I Love A Show Tune!” is charming, nostalgic and funny, as well as deeply heart-warming for audiences who enjoy the music of American song-writing greats such as Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Loewe, George Gershwin and Irving Berlin.
A classically trained pianist, Judith turned to Musical Theatre in her 30’s and performed professionally in productions including The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls and The Man from La Mancha. Her richly varied music teaching career in schools across KZN from Curro Hillcrest Christian Academy to The Wykeham Collegiate and Durban Girls High also includes a social upliftment choral programme for the Drakensberg Boys Choir School.
As well as her very personal selection from the golden age of Broadway musicals, expect to hear songs from other favourite shows like Little Women, Sweet Charity and Gigi as well as a virtuoso showstopper from the recent “Mary Poppins The Stage Musical”.
“I Love a Show Tune!” appeals to all who love sincere musical theatre story-telling and gorgeous melodies. You’ll want to singalong to every golden show tune with Judith.
