Arguably one of New Zealand’s best-known entertainers of yesteryear, Max Cryer, will appear in Warkworth this month.
He will present his new show Max Factor 2, with pianist Kim Naden, at the Old Masonic Hall on Saturday afternoon, November 14. The concert is a fundraiser for the Warkworth Town Hall Restoration Project.
The programme is described as “light-hearted words, music and occasional irreverence” featuring the works of Noel Coward, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Spike Milligan and Dame Edna Everage.
The former school teacher has done extended runs as talk show host, television producer, musical performer and author. For more than a decade, he juggled gigs in New Zealand and the United States, and claims to have sung “just about every type of music there is, except rock and jazz”.
He was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire, for his services to entertainment, in 1995.
The concert starts at 4.30pm. Tickets are $30, available from Unicorn Bookshop and Mahurangi Matters, both in Neville Street, or on Facebook (Warkworth Town Hall Restoration Profect).
