THE PAUL MCCARTNEY TRIBUTE (article first published : 2006-07-7)

Celebrating the music of Sir Paul McCartney, hot on the heels of his 64th birthday on June 18, The Dockyard Supper Theatre presents its final show in its Hall of Fame series.

As it happens, this will also be the final show in The Dockyard’s present location on the Point Waterfront. The Paul McCartney tribute originally scheduled to run until mid July will see its final performance on July 30. The new Dockyard Theatre will open in Musgrave Centre (premises formerly occupied by Legends restaurant) in early August.

The Paul McCartney show will feature the Dockyard Show Band as well as Paul Cassells, who wowed audiences recently as Elton John and director/producer Stuart Mey himself on vocals.

“I have been waiting a long time to pay tribute to Paul McCartney and his music,” says Stuart. “It is therefore most fitting that we leave our current premises with a show that promises to be spectacular,” he adds.

The song list includes all of Sir Paul’s most memorable hits. “It has been difficult to decide which song to leave out,” says Stuart. “McCartney has had a plethora of hits since his days with The Beatles, Wings and in more recent times. So we have decided, as our last show at the Point to give our supporters a little extra by making the show longer.”

Fans can expect to hear the McCartney songs with the usual accuracy that Stuart Mey’s productions are well known for.

The ultimate widening of the harbour mouth has prompted theatre owner Stuart Mey to move his operation to the Berea. “You never know when the next tsunami may hit us,” he jokes. Shop-fitters are currently busy in the old Legends premises, Musgrave Centre, where they are installing a mezzanine floor, stage and refitting the kitchen area. The new Dockyard Supper Theatre on Musgrave (obviously the name has been retained) is scheduled to open for the second week in August with a salute to Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jnr. and Dean Martin featuring a 12 piece big band.
