Ben Maiorana Entertainment Proudly Presents

Doug Parkinson 50th Anniversary

Starring Doug Parkinson and very special guest Colleen Hewett

Australia’s greatest soul voice Doug Parkinson celebrates 50 years of performing excellence with a new show Dear Prudence The 50th Anniversary Tour.

Hard to believe this multi award winning artist of soul and rock and box office hit musicals began his stellar career thrown into the musical deep end, only to emerge decades later as a household name, respected and admired by audiences and peers alike.

Doug Parkinson is highly regarded as a ’singer’s singer’, an artist capable of interpreting many genres of popular music. From smoky ballads to hard driving rock and all points in between, Doug Parkinson has it all covered and is considered one of Australia’s leading showmen and entertainers. ’A Rolled Gold Superstar’ to quote The Australian newspaper.

After two sold out Australian National Tours – Dear Prudence The 50th Anniversary Tour revisits the roller coaster ride that has been Doug Parkinson’s remarkable journey, punctuated by both happy and not so happy events that have shaped Parkinson the man, a survivor in a business notorious for its uncompromising demands both personal and professional.

The repertoire includes interpretations of hits from such legendary artists as Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Marvin Gaye, Michael McDonald, The Beatles and The Great American Song Book, just to name a few.

A highlight of this exciting new show is Doug Parkinson’s unique renditions of his own hit records, ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore’, ‘Without You’, ‘I’ll Be Around’, and ‘The Hungry Years’. But wait there’s more, as they say in the classics.

It’s also the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ White Album, considered universally as a masterpiece and the source of Doug Parkinson’s greatest recording triumph, the iconic and masterful Dear Prudence.

Colleen Hewett ticks all the boxes: Stage Musicals, Television Drama, Film, Recording and Concerts.

“Colleen Hewett and Russell Morris are my two favourite Australian singers.” Molly Meldrum

“A remarkable story, from teen singing prodigy to pop diva to the gutsy mature singer who played alongside Hugh Jackman as Peter Allen’s mother in The Boy from Oz.” Andrew Rule, Herald Sun

“A great artist helps us see our own pain, share it, soothe it and confirm the beauty of life, love and laughter. Colleen’s voice, (like, for me, great Jewish humour) carries the burden and joy of many lives past and many lives inside her.” Rod Saunders
