Join us as we bring a slice of big screen glitz and glamour to Cessnock with AN EVENING WITH OSCAR: THE GREATEST HITS FROM HOLLYWOOD on Friday 26 August from 8pm.

Local pianist and musical maestro Greg Paterson will present around two hours of entertainment, drawing from an extensive songbook of the silver screen’s most memorable and timeless productions. The result is a carefully curated selection of songs from the ‘40s to today with one thing in common – they’ve all taken home Tinseltown’s most sought-after prize, the coveted golden statuette.

Greg and his ensemble would be familiar faces to anyone who has attended Carols in the Park at Cessnock Sportsground over the years, having performed at the event since its inception. The team were also behind last year’s smash hit Studio Sounds event 'Best of Broadway' evening.

A mainstay of the entertainment scene in the Hunter for decades, Greg was recognised in 2020 for his service to the Performing Arts – in particular for music – when he was awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM). Greg has also been a recipient of a number of City of Newcastle Drama Association (CONDA) Awards over the years – most recently in 2017 for Outstanding Contribution and Achievement in Newcastle Theatre.

Tickets are $49.00 and include a free drink on arrival. Patrons can choose between either cabaret or tiered seating for the performance.
