About this Event

**DINNER & SHOW BOOKINGS CLOSE midnight Wednesday 9 Dec**

Songs & Sonnets over Dinner

This December enjoy being serenaded over a three course meal prepared beside a grand piano on Manuka Lawns - what better way to end this year?

For two nights only a grand piano will be brought onto the lawns for an intimate audience of 50 to experience original compositions from the Lakespeare & Co company. The programme involves selections from musical theatre giant Stephen Sondheim and Rockspeare musical composer Jay Cameron, peppered with Sonnets from Shakespeare. You just might hear a few surprise toe-tapping tunes you wouldn’t expect on a grand, outside, in Manuka.

Lakespeare & Co endeavour to bring high quality storytelling to Canberrans and our first musical offering is thanks to Typica Manuka and this unique arts+business partnership.

We know Canberrans will be thrilled by this unique evening which will touch on the losses of this year and also the hope for the future.
