Last chance to catch Senior Moments production in Queensland
IF you love to laugh and can see the funny side of getting old, then now is the time to book yourself a ticket to the hilarious comedy revue Senior Moments - especially if you're living in Brisbane, Cairns, Maryborough, Caloundra or Tasmania.
Veteran actors and crowd favourites John Wood (Blue Heelers, Rafferty's Rules), Max Gillies (The Gillies Report), Benita Collings (Play School), Kim Lewis (Sons and Daughters, The Restless Year) and Russell Newman (A Country Practice, Underbelly) are more than half way through their national tour of the show as they tour Senior Moments around the country showing us all how to have fun growing old disgracefully.
The actors were joined by 83-year-old former Midday Show maestro Geoff Harvey on piano for the start of the current tour in February. Sadly Geoff passed away on March 31. The Senior Moments team have confirmed the tour will go on in Geoff's honour, and expressed their sadness for the loss.
A statement on the show's website says: "It is with great sadness that the Senior Moments company marks the passing of our musical director and piano player Mr Geoff Harvey. Geoff was with Senior Moments from our first season in 2016 and on all subsequent shows, touring with us nationally. It is a great loss to us all and we extend our deepest condolences to his family."
Senior Moments is described as a "deliciously funny and fresh collection of comic senior moments, scenes and songs, with hilarious sketches and wonderfully witty songs performed by some legendary show business seniors".
"It's a seriously silly show for otherwise sensible seniors."
The 90 minute show will be performed across Australia until the end of May as part of the current tour.
