After wowing audiences on London’s West End, across the US, and the Sydney Opera House, tap-dance troupe extraordinaire The Tap Pack are hoofing their way to our neck of the woods for a duo of shows.
The Aussie dance sensation will be bringing their high-energy and high-comedy show to Cessnock Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday 30 June, before heading to the Civic Theatre on Thursday 1 July.
With a cheeky name-check nod to the iconic Rat Pack, The Tap Pack conjure up a modern twist on crooners and artists such as Rat Pack stalwarts Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.
However, these guys also turn their talents to more modern fare such as Ed Sheeran, Michael Bublé, and Beyonce, in a show literally dripping with energy, gun and, of course world-class tap dancing.
Starring some of Australia’s finest and most distinguished dancers and singers, The Tap Pack features the formidable talents Jesse Rasmussen (Hot Shoe Shuffle, Grease, Candy Man), Jordan Pollard (Westside Story, Anything Goes, Singin’ in the Rain), Thomas Egan ( Kylie Minogue, Delta Goodrem, Timomatic, Jessica Mauboy, X-Factor, Australia’s Got Talent, So You Think You Can Dance, Tap Dogs), Max Patterson (Hot Shoe Shuffle) and Tom Struik (West Side Story, Boys in the Band, Kylie Minogue, Shrek).
Armed with their loveable on-stage larrikinisms, The Tap Pack brings a new, invigorating energy to a timeless style that the whole family can appreciate.
