The Tap Pack announces national tour
Following sold out houses and rave reviews on London’s West End and in the USA, Australia’s hottest tap dance sensation, THE TAP PACK, take their high-octane, tap comedy show around Australia from April 2023, with seasons in Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and Sydney. Tickets are on sale now.
Producer Kym Halpin said, “The show is pure entertainment. We can’t wait to thrill and delight audiences with this feel-good show. Before COVID hit, the show was selling out in all corners of the globe. After a difficult few years, we are very excited to finally be able to bring THE TAP PACK back to Australia’s largest cities and best theatres. “
Picking up where the Rat Pack left off, THE TAP PACK conjures up a modern twist to the crooners and artists from the ‘50s through to the noughties! Featuring songs from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr to Ed Sheeran, Michael Bublé and Beyoncé.
