Lissa And Neenee’s Riverside Adventure (Melissa Western / Antony Dyer)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Colourful and energetic musical duo Melissa Western and Antony Dyer’s new show isn’t exactly a riverside adventure so much as an excuse to sing a few original songs and covers on the theme of the river. However, the songs are catchy, and the couple are accomplished performers, easily warming the audience into their routine. Unfortunately, even at the more manageable length of forty minutes, there doesn’t seem quite enough interaction to keep the youngest audience members entertained as they would often lose focus when it was just the two performers on stage. When there was audience interaction it was well done, though: Melissa has a particular way with the younger children, and Antony built a great rapport with some of the parents.

Paradise at the Kirkhouse, until 26 Aug, 10.00am.
