SIX-time Golden Guitar winner and 2010 Dancing with the Stars contestant Melinda Schneider brings her Doris Day show to Mandurah on Friday, September 29.

The country music star has enjoyed great success with her Melinda Does Doris – a Tribute to Doris Day album, debuting at number 1 on the ARIA Jazz and Blues charts and remaining there for nine weeks.

Following the success of the album, Schneider was eager to take her recorded work to the stage.

The show will be one of nine creative and entertainment being hosted in WA as part of the National Lendlease Spring Retirement Festival in 64 of its villages around Australia.

General manager Mark Criddle said the festival was a chance to inspire over 55s to try something new.

“We hope the audience will be singing along and dancing in their seats,’’ he said.

Schneider will perform Day classics including Que Sera Sera and Sentimental Journey.

All events are free and for those aged 55 plus.

Bookings are essential and can be made on www.springretirementfestival.com.au or by calling the festival hotline on 1800 550 550.
