What's On in Adelaide

Tomfoolery - The Words and Music of Tom Lehrer
 

Adapted by Cameron Mackintosh and Robin Ray.
Musical Arrangements by Chris Walker and Robert Fisher.

Tomfoolery, the words and music of acclaimed American musician, singer-songwriter satirist and Harvard mathematician Tom Lehrer, returns to Adelaide for a limited five performance season from 18 to 22 July at the Marion Cultural Centre, 287 Diagonal Road, Oaklands Park. 

The show is being reprised for a 10th Anniversary tribute to the late Michael Fuller, director and choreographer of the sell-out 2008 Adelaide Fringe season of Tomfoolery at La Boheme. 

Directed by Nicholas Cannon and starring Catherine Campbell, Hew Parham and Sean Weatherly with chamber pianist Mark Sandon, the show features performances of 23 of Lehrer’s most famous songs including: Poisoning Pigeons in the Park, Pollution, I Got it From Agnes, National Brotherhood Week, The Masochism Tango, The Old Dope Peddler, The Vatican Rag and We Will All Go Together When We Go.  Also included will be the five songs which the deeply conservative Playford and McEwin Liberal Government controversially banned from performance by Lehrer here in Adelaide in 1960.
