C – A Musical Cancer Society Gala Fundraiser – Thursday 11 July for $60

Written and Directed by Paul Jenden
Music Composed by Gareth Farr
Starring: Jackie Clarke, Danny Mulheron, Jane Waddell, Louis Solino and Sue Alexander

Paul Jenden’s ongoing treatment for cancer becomes the stepping off point for C - A Musical, a show that celebrates the human spirit and the triumph of laughter over fear.

Lead by the irrepressible Jackie Clarke, five incredible artists star in this brand new show by dynamic duo Paul Jenden and Gareth Farr.

‘I can hear you thinking, “This is going to be so-o-o-o depressing,” and I say, “No, it’ll be fun,” and you go, “Oh God, it’s going to be really tasteless,” and I say, “look, cancer sucks. If you’ve got it, had it or lost someone to it, the last thing you need is someone poking you with a stick. This isn’t like that. This is a travelogue, a picaresque novel, the record of journey into my head, a kind of Dante’s Inferno but with song and dance!”’

C – A Musical is a constantly surprising experience: part musical, part poetry, part piano sonata, part cabaret, part memoir, part fantasy, all combined in a funny, moving and irreverent evening, bubbling with good nature.

C – A Musical is incredibly proud to be supported by the Cancer Society New Zealand and we are holding a Cancer Society Gala Fundraiser performance of C – A Musical, 7pm Thursday 11th July for $60 ($30 will go directly to the Cancer Society). Bookings are now open for the season and this special fundraiser.
