Glenn Hill and Cristina D'Agostino are celebrating the romance, glamour and elegance of Hollywood's most iconic song and dance partnerships with their show Cheek to Cheek, set to take to the Dubbo Regional Theatre stage on October 20.
The new production celebrates and explores the legacy of memories left behind from Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were iconic dance partners in a total of 10 films, nine of them with RKO Radio Pictures and one, The Barkleys of Broadway, with MGM in 1949, their only coloured film.
Glenn Hill and Cristina D'Agostino bring the magic and masterful choreography of Astaire and Rogers to the stage with Cheek to Cheek.
Glenn and Cristina are both seasoned musical theatre performers who have appeared in a multitude of professional Australian and world-wide musicals.
Glenn has recently completed the Australian tour of Jersey Boys as Bob Crewe and Cristina played the part of Franki Valli's wife, Mary, in the hugely popular production.
The duo takes their audience back a few decades with Cheek to Cheek, showcasing the pure and beautiful era that is old Hollywood.
The production features some of the most thrilling dance sequences ever conceived for film.
The show is a rare chance to see the flair and skill of the two Silver screen legends recreated live on stage.
Cheek to Cheek uses original backing tracks from Fred and Ginger's remarkable performances.
Guests will be able to enjoy classic and iconic songs of the past including the Academy Award-winning Night and Day, Let's Call the Whole Thing Off, Top Hat, White Tie and Tails, They Can't Take That Away From Me and The Way You Look Tonight.
Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre manager Linda Christof said Cheek to Cheek is one of the season's last shows and encourages theatre lovers to see the show,

"We've left one of the best for last," Ms Christof said.
"As we near the end of our 2019 Season, patrons are in for a treat with this show.
"Cheek to Cheek lives up to our 2019 Season theme of Puttin' on the Glitz."
Mayor of the Dubbo Region, Councillor Ben Shields, is also a fan of the show.
Mr Shields said Cheek to Cheek is an opportunity for people to catch a show that doesn't finish after dark.
"There are always requests for matinee shows as many patrons prefer not to travel at night," he said.
"Given 34 per cent of ticket purchasers come from outside the Local Government area, this is a great way to spend an afternoon in Dubbo and return home before dark."
Tickets are now available for purchase from the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre box office.
Alternatively, you can call the theatre on Box Office on 6801 4378.
