In her latest concert, An Intimate Evening with Faith Prince, the performer moves effortlessly between theatre, live performance, television and movies, reflecting this southern belle’s past and present with a small glimpse into the future as well.

Her unforgettable and often hilarious adventures are brought to life through the songs of some of America’s greatest composers. These include Harold Arlen, Menken & Ashman, Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb, Rodgers & Hart and Jerry Herman.

As one of Broadway’s best loved leading ladies, Faith Prince has appeared in a string of successful musicals including roles as Ursula in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Ella in Bells Are Ringing, Miss Hannigan in Annie, Anna in The King and I, and Mrs Wilkinson in Billy Elliot.

Audiences may know Faith from her recurring roles on television in the sitcoms Modern Family and Spin City.

Faith last appeared on the QPAC stage with her Annie co-star Anthony Warlow.

But this time Brisbane audiences will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with her for two very special shows in the intimate surrounds of the Cremorne Theatre.

Faith will be  accompanied by New York based composer and musical director Alex Rybeck.

The week-long program of workshops and masterclasses, presented by QPAC in association with QCGU, will culminate in a Student Cabaret Showcase on Thursday 3 October in the Cremorne Theatre.
