Kumeu Live is honoured that Delia has agreed to perform a set of some of her favourite songs along with a full band.

Delia Hannah began her career with Pirates of Penzance and by the time I saw her in chess she was already a star on the rise, having played Eva Peron in Evita and performed over 100 shows as Fantine in the Australian production of Les Miserables.

Her break-out performance (and still my favourite of all time) came as Rose Vibert in the 1993 Australian premiere of Aspects of Love directed by Gale Edwards. Delia was awarded both the Variety and MO awards for her star turn, before being invited to open the UK touring production as Rose.

Delia went on to play Mrs Johnstone in the Australasian tour of Blood Brothers and won the Sydney Critics Circle Award for her performance, in addition to recording the soundtrack with Stefan Dennis and David Soul. She also recorded her first solo album, Down Stage Centre, featuring many of the hit songs she had become known for.

She has since played Grizabella in various productions of Cats all over the world and in 2011 starred as a principal artist in the international tour of The Music Of Andrew Lloyd Webber, where she performed some of the composer's best-loved songs, including Don’t Cry For Me Argentina and Memory.

In October 2012 Delia appeared as The Bird Woman in the highly anticipated New Zealand season of the hit show Mary Poppins, a role she also played in Perth and Brisbane.

Aro:
Aro are an amalgamation of stories from the north and the south with melodies that ride the sun from the east to the west.

Before being hitched, reggae and blues was Charles' rocking chair, jazz and pop was Emily's coffee cup, and now the mix feels like a rocking coffee kick; sometimes mellow, sometimes wild, but always a treat.
