Cast from Jesus Christ Superstar
Cast from My Fair Lady
Sharron Matthews and Shawn Hitchins
Anyway, the cast from Jesus Christ Superstar started off the night with a great set of songs from the musical. Vocals are wonderful, very loud and commanding. Sometime even a little gospel. They ended their set with the title song, "Jesus Christ Superstar".
Shawn Hitchins and Sharron Matthews were the co-hosts for the event, and they kept us entertained as stagehands were busy setting up set for the next performer.
Hitchins and Matthews performed a medley of famous broadway hits, including "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story. I get the impression that they've been doing comedy improv or standup for a while.
Hitchins would later on give out prizes to the best singers, as we all sing along to Gene Kelly's "Singin' in the Rain", The Sound of Music's "Do Re Mi", The Rocky Horror Picture Show's "Let's Do the Time Warp Again", and ABBA's "Dancing Queen".
There were also three main cast members from My Fair lady doing some selected songs from their musical, starting with the very British-y song, "Why Can't the English".
My favorite of the night was clearly Meow Meow and her crazy comedy cabaret. I think she's quite famous in Australia, and I can see why, she's absolutely mesmerizing to watch. The highlight of her show was when she asked for three volunteers to help her do "the greatest love song".
The Luminato series of free movies and outdoor concert event is happening all this week. See more details at luminato.com.
