Saraton shows its back in business

THE honour of the first live performance in the newly refurbished Saraton Theatre was given to The McClymonts, however more acts are set to grace the stage.

Saraton Theatre manager Jo Kubik says there will be a range of acts in the Clarence in the coming months.

“The Sydney Youth Orchestra is coming in June, and John Williamson will be here in

September,” she said.

“Troy Cassar-Daley has expressed an interest in playing a home gig, however, we don’t have a date yet, and we have been contacted by Leo Sayer as well, but that is still in the very, very early stages of planning.”

After their performance with the McClymonts on Saturday night, McAlister Kemp are looking at returning, which Jo says she would do in a heartbeat.

“There will be a whole variety of types of entertainment too, not just musical acts. We hope to have theatre and possibly a few international acts in Grafton too.”
