The Doris and Shirley Show
After rave reviews for her shows The Women of the 60’s and The Belles of Broadway, the fabulous Gina Hogan returns to the stage with another standout show featuring songs from Doris Day and Shirley Bassey.

These two iconic women are as different as night and day, yet Gina moves effortlessly from Doris, the quintessential all-American “girl next door” to the dramatic and powerful Shirley, capturing the essence of these two women.

With songs like Secret Love, Everybody Loves a Lover and On Moonlight Bay. And from the Shirley collection, Diamonds are Forever, Big Spender and I Who Have Nothing. And that’s just the beginning.

Venue: Labertouche Public Hall, 440 Labertouche Road, Labertouche
