NORPA and Tropical Fruits presents

Mr Capsis is a one man protest. He will not give up his right to inhabit the night with songs, with rocking out, with being a total full-on rock Queen!

The night belongs to all of us… come celebrate this right with a night of exploring the delicious music of Patti Smith, Skyhooks, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Judy Garland, Billie Holiday, Ike and Tina Turner, Doris Day, Thelma Houston and many more…

This is a blast-off cabaret, to let go and say goodbye to a challenging year!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!
