Theatre Royal Studio Theatre

Big Band music is back at the Theatre Royal!

For nearly 10 years, Andrew Colrain, Colin Dean and John X, together with Matthew Ives and his Big Band, have brought you smash hit Vegas style shows, in Hobart’s historic Theatre Royal.

Now it’s time to raise the bar and deliver a show with a difference in Hobart’s newest venue at the Theatre Royal.

Tasmania’s folically-challenged answer to the Rat Pack return to Hobart with a brand new show in a brand new theatre. CROON “Up Close and Personal” is just as the name suggests. In the inviting  surroundings of the new studio theatre in the Hedberg Building, Andrew, Colin and John X will deliver a more intimate musical experience than you have come to expect from Croon and Matthew Ives and his Big Band.

Featuring crooning classics like Fly Me to the Moon, Dream a Little Dream of Me, Summer Wind, The Very Thought of You and many more!

Add to this, the cheeky antics of three of the state’s funniest comic performers, and you have a special night in the theatre that you will remember for a long time to come.

So grab some friends, come along and cozy up as you get to know the lads a little better through the songs that make us feel good.

With only five performances including a matinee, tickets are limited in this snug new venue.
