The Art House reboots its popular and unique Stage Door Music Series to kick off the year.
The concept originated in October 2020 as a safe way to return to the theatre, and to give local artists a chance to perform after the first 7-month lockdown. The experience sold out with audiences enjoying the chance to see theatre from the ‘other side’.
It all starts with entry along a red carpet through Stage Door into a pop-up bar in the backstage scene dock. Theatre is then flipped on its head as cabaret-style private tables are arranged ON The Art House stage looking out over the empty auditorium. Audiences enjoy SMS bar service, cheese and antipasto platters, and quality musical entertainment.
This year Central Coast local and musical theatre powerhouse Andrew Worboys (Rent, American Psycho, Merrily We Roll Along) and his band The Isolationists are joined by Bek Jensen (toured with the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Cold Chisel and The Sleepy Jackson), followed by Stellar Perry (from The Voice and Bell Shakespeare’s The Lovers at the Sydney Opera House) on vocals.
The Art House says the Stage Door Series is not just a show but an experience, as part of its mission to bring unique and memorable arts events to the coast. From arrival, to service, to the entertainment, it’s a city-style night out close to home.
“It’s a fabulous experience – I’m so glad to hear you are doing them again.”
“We really enjoyed the concept and the entertainment. We would definitely attend more of these events!”
“The performances with the audience on stage are such a brilliant idea.” 2022 audience members
