ABOUT THE SHOW:
Memory Lane has never sounded (or looked) this good! Imagine a real trip down memory lane straight to the groovy disco and power ballad era of the 70’s & 80’s. Or, what about the time when Motown reigned supreme? And this year, throw in the 90’s, the noughties and maybe even ‘the now’, and the fun will definitely not set in the Artscape Opera House. This is what you can expect on this trip that stops over at the disco floors where words like ‘boogie’, ‘groovy’, ‘funky’ ‘sugar’ & ‘get down’ were very serious in everyone who is anyone’s vocabulary.
‘BEST OF BOOGIE’ is your chance to relive those golden years by donning your “funky” afro and bell-bottom trousers, or designing a completely “groovy” 80’s-style outfit where colours clashed and plastic jewelry, shoulder pads and big hair reigned supreme.
In fact, why not take the opportunity to let us host your school reunion or end-of-year party? This year the theme for “dressing up” is SCHOOL UNIFORMS…get your old school mates together and have your reunion at the show with special shout-outs; don your school uniform and you could be crowned the head girl or head boy for the night!
Over the past nine years GANARAMA Productions took you on similar journeys annually with the acclaimed BOOGIE-THEMED SHOWS like ‘Old School Boogie’, ‘Boogie Wonderland’, ‘Blame it on the Boogie’, ‘Back-2-School Boogie’, Boogie-Licious and of course last year’s smash hit, ‘Boogie’s Gonna Get Ya!’ that people are still talking fondly about. This year they will take you on an even bigger, more exciting trip with a show that will yet again knock your socks off, guaranteeing a party from its opening number right through to the finale. This is the Boogie franchise’s 10th exciting year…so expect to be blown away!
‘BEST OF BOOGIE’ will feature hits of Gloria Gaynor, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, The Bee Gees, Earth, Wind & Fire, Kool& The Gang, Diana Ross and The Stylistics. These are but a few of the artists you can expect to ‘boogie’ to for two solid hours at Artscape this November, under the skilful musical direction of Denzil M Thorne. The inimitable duo, Gary Naidoo& Rafiek Mammon will again be filling the producer & director chairs.
