An outstanding presentation. While we have enjoyed many shows, we felt this was quite unique. The music and stage presentation, the voice, the accompanying musicians, the film tributes. A top class show! Paul Dravet I Theatre Manager I Hayden Orpheum Theatre Sydney - 2012


On the anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day in May 2011, at Her Majesty's Theatre, Adelaide Legacy paid tribute to all involved with the wonderful show, VERA, The Magic of Dame Vera Lynn, performed by MELANIE PARRY. With an audience of almost 600, there was not a dry eye in the house as Melanie generously sang one WWII hit song after another. Indeed, Melanie's own personal and direct experience of military conflict was evident in her performance as she sang with the kind of truth and authenticity that an audience that has witnessed the horrors of war could identify with. Melanie gave her audience everything, and as a bonus read a personal message from Dame Vera herself, that left the audience feeling most special. MELANIE PARRY is a special performer, and her show, VERA, The Magic of Dame Vera Lynn is a special show.- Rainer Jozeps I Chief Executive Officer I Legacy Club of Adelaide Inc. - 29 June 2011
