“Debonair Roland Perold’s enjoyable cabaret of the Great American Songbook is filled with the great hits of the Golden Age. He reminds the youth of the great inspiration of some of the most talented musicians to ever live and rekindles memories for the older generation. His outstanding vocal skills left the audience in awe.”

ABOUT THE SHOW
The Great American Songbook comes to life in new cabaret.
Hot on the heels of Musical Theatre Memory Lane, the hugely popular one-man show that played locally and in the UK, ROLSKA Productions is proud to present The Great American Songbook.
The debonair Roland Perold entertains from the piano as he explores repertoire from the golden age of American popular song. A period where tunesmiths of the day captured the sensibility of the American spirit with songs that defined an era and still dazzle today. Composers like Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington and Cole Porter feature with timeless numbers like Ac-cent-tchu-ate the Positive, Over The Rainbow, Blue Skies, On a Slow Boat to China, Ain’t Misbehavin’ and many more. Allowing the material to speak for itself Roland blends his informal style with personal anecdotes and tidbits about the era and its many wonderful characters.
Roland Perold is an accomplished actor, musical director and producer and has crafted a solid niche for himself in popular musical theatre with productions such as I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, Coward & Cole and Edges. He holds a MMus Degree from Bath Spa University in the UK, and has written three original musicals – the most recent being You Bet Your Life!, with co-writer David Fick, which enjoyed a sell out run at Alexander Bar in March 2015. ROLSKA Productions was founded in 2009, producing high quality Musical Theatre, Cabaret and Revue ever since.
The show runs for 55min without interval.
