Written by and starring award-winning actress and singer Ali Harper, A Doris Day Special is a one-woman musical play paying tribute to America’s singing sweetheart of the silver screen during the 1950s and 60s.
A Doris Day Special made its debut at the Court Theatre in 2016. It has toured almost continuously since then, and will come to the ASB Theatre at the completion of a four week season at Wellington's Circa Theatre.
Set in a Hollywood TV studio in 1971, the audience become the ‘live studio audience’ as Ali cleverly brings Doris Day’s bubbly personality, lilting voice and blonde beauty to life as she ‘films’ a Television Special in her highly-acclaimed show A Doris Day Special. Doris Day, with her bubbly personality, lilting voice and blonde beauty, was America’s singing sweetheart of the silver screen during the 1950s and 1960s.
Award-winning Ali Harper is a one of a kind with a music and drama career spanning over twenty-five years on stage and screen. A Doris Day Special brings together all her talents in a series of glamorous outfits, a long list of well-known tunes and proves that Doris is more than just a girl next door.
