The Roy Orbison Story
Fri 27 October at 7:30 pm
Experience the wonder of Roy Orbison in this brilliant portrayal of the man, his music, his voice and his life.
You will find yourself believing you are in his presence, transported back in time, reliving the emotion of each of his songs, and the stories of his life.
Mark Shelley is simply brilliant in his characterisation of Roy. Not only does he have the vocal range and tone to honour his songs, he also has the sensitivity and artistic ability to ‘be’ Roy.
Without doubt, this is the definitive portrayal of Roy Orbison – the man, his music and his life.
Featuring hit songs Only the Lonely, Running Scared, Sweet Dream Baby, Candy Man, Blue Bayou, In Dreams, Anything You Want, Crying, Workin’ for the Man, Penny Arcade, Pretty Woman and many more.
The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
