David Scheel - DON'T SHOOT ME, I'm only the piano
Sunnybanks theatre group presents
AUGUST 15th & 17th
David Scheel first came on the scene over 20 years ago, when his solo concert, Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only the Piano Player, sold out at three consecutive Edinburgh Festivals, in London’s West End, and instantly had him acclaimed as the most original musical humorist of his generation.
Since those days he has become an International star and this year alone has toured throughout Australia, South Africa, Europe and at the moment is in the USA to perform in New York where they dubbed him “the funniest pianist in the World”!
David offers a revealing insight into the art of the pianist-composer and is one of only a handful of musicians who keep that art alive. He’s best known for concerts in which he mercilessly sends up classical music, in programs such as Maestro, and the ever-popular Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only the Piano Player, which saw him dubbed the new Victor Borge very early on in his career. And believe me there will be no shortage of hilarious stories during these musical concerts, and pure music lovers will not be short-changed, as David unveils his talent as a highly skilled concert pianist, and composer.
Let me summarise with a few quotes from reviews around the world:
· The Dean of the Faculty of Music at Oklahoma State University said, “Such a wonderfully entertaining, fun concert. But when it came to his own compositions – wow, there were something else”.
· In Wanganui New Zealand they said “His compositions were simply beautiful with an incredible facility for parodying musical styles”
· Here in Australia in the Canberra Times, “David Scheel is a very fine serious pianist and composer, and also an excellent raconteur"
And in the UK, Event magazine dubbed him as being “In the first rank of musical humourists”
We are delighted and very proud to be able to bring David to entertain you in our theatre for only two performances in August. Bookings for these concerts will be available in the early part of the year with a set ticket price of $35 including supper after the evening show and afternoon tea served during the interval of the matinee performance.
