SONGBIRD: Marina Prior will play Middleback Theatre on Friday, August 29
Marina Prior is renowned for thrilling audiences across the country and is highly regarded as Australia’s leading lady of the theatre stage.
Prior will bring her amazing talents for the first time to Whyalla as part of her Songbird tour.
The Songbird tour will offer fans a collection of the most loved songs from Prior’s decorated career in an intimate setting and performance.
Prior is an award winning artist, having won Mo Awards, Green Room Awards and the Advance Australia Award for her contribution to performing arts.
She was inducted into Australia’s 100 Entertainers of the Century and has performed in more than 20 leading roles in her career.
Prior said she was “extremely excited” to play in Whyalla for the first time.
“I’ve never, ever been to Whyalla, what can I expect?” she said.
“One of the best things about doing this tour is seeing all of these amazing regional towns and cities.
“I’m really excited to get there and it’s also such an amazing opportunity to see Australia from a different perspective.”
Prior said regional shows were “different” as opposed to shows in the city, but once she got on stage it felt the same.
“When you arrive at these smaller centres, you can meet a lot more people and I love that interface with the audience,” she said.
“The regional audiences are a little-less stitched up than those in the city, they are a lot more responsive and I really appreciate and enjoy that.”
In April this year, Prior launched a special edition boxed release also titled Songbird featuring a collection of her theatre hits.
Prior said she released this box set under the guidance of her record label to showcase her new work and celebrate her older material.
Her national tour kicks off in August and will see the songstress tour the east and west coasts of Australia ending in Tasmania in December.
Prior will perform at Middleback Theatre on Friday, August 29.
Tickets are available at www.countryarts.org.au or phone Middleback Theatre on 8644 7300.
