Veteran Thanet entertainer Gordon Clarkson is stepping back into the spotlight with a personal favourite production in a new venue for him and the company.
They are staging the popular floorshow ‘I’ve Got Gershwin’ for two matinee’s only this year at the Thanet Indoor Bowls Centre situated in Fifth Avenue, Cliftonville.
Gordon said: “I am delighted to be effectively ‘ kickstarting’ my career again after the imposed hiatus of Covid at this comfortable, friendly venue in Cliftonville. The benefits of this room are fantastic, all on the flat, free parking and a clean, spacious environment.”
The show is packed with songs drawn from The Great American Songbook such as ‘They can’t take that away from me’, ‘Summertime’, ‘Mack the Knife’, ‘At last’ and ‘A foggy day’ among many other favourites
Appearing with Gordon are Stacy Golding, Frank Tucker and Alice Underdown with the live musical backing of Paul Stewart and Sam Nicholls on piano and percussion respectively.
The slick, sophisticated show’s setting is a 1950s nightclub with the guys dressed in smart Tuxedo’s throughout whilst the ladies execute a costume change for every appearance, providing a touch of old school glamour.
Included in the £18 price is an interval tea of sandwich, scone with cream and jam and tea or coffee.
The performances take place on Thursday 22nd September and Thursday 27th October at 2.30pm and tickets must be booked in advance on Freephone 0800 7813452.
