ACTING duo, Chris Durrant and Stephen Turley who aptly named themselves the Avocado Pair are back on stage in Darlington for a stellar performance.
Teaming up with Christina Browning, the pair are looking forward to a night of singing, dancing and general hoopla for all in the Darlington Hall on July 10 from 7.30pm.
Durrant said their name came about because they were rehearsing in 2021 and Turley suggested a name starting with an ‘A’ would be good for google searches.
The rest is history as the duo have gone from strength to strength and continued to perform in association with Voice Moves WA.
Voice Moves is the states major choral association formed as a not for profit group to encourage and support networking among choirs and singers and promote community involvement in singing.
Avocado Pair’s new production promises audiences an evening of laughter, joy and sing-a-longs borrowing humorous songs from Tom Lehrer, Flanders and Swann and Jeremy Taylor in the line up.
Durrant said the performances are satirical, amusing and funny.
“Certainly at least some of them will raise loud laughs,” he said.
“Most of them were written by an American called Tom Lehrer (a mathematics professor at Harvard as well as being a uniquely funny man) and an English duo called Michael Flanders and Donald Swan, although we have also included other songs.”
Concert proceeds go to the Parkerville Children and Youth Care.
