Coaltown Blues performer returns to Picton

There are many songs with beautiful melodies and lyrics. Amongst those are some special songs which create little short stories, complete with characters and a plot, condensed into just a few lines, but with a depth of effect. One such, "Sweet Dreams" by John Bucchino, a sad little story of two runaways who meet in a bus station, set actor/singer Chris Green on the path to his latest production Sequels - Stories In Song.

Chris Green brought the solo play Coaltown Blues to Picton Little Theatre in 2014, and The Boathouse Theatre in 2015. He joins forces again with Thomas Nikora on piano for Sequels. Humour, pathos and charm are inherent in the selection of songs as Green brings this range of short stories to life with his intimate musical interpretations and skills as a musical theatre actor. The Dominion Post described his singing as "sublime".

Theatreview states: "Chris Green is a talented performer with a warm and engaging presence, a gift for capturing the key elements of character in voice and stance, and a fine, rich baritone voice."

Some of the songs in Sequels will be fairly well known - Anthem from Chess, Bring Him Home from Les Mis; the Billy Joel number New York State of Mind, Witchita Lineman made famous by Glenn Campbell. Some will be new to most audience members - a surprising piece from Elton John and Bernie Taupin, vignettes from Jimmy Webb and of course Sweet Dreams.

Sequels - Stories In Song - One performance only.
