Melinda Does Doris


Riverside Theatre


06 March 2016

Melinda Schneider performs her tribute to legendary star Doris Day.

After forging a dazzling country music career that has won her 6 Golden Guitars and stunning audiences on Dancing with the Stars, Australian favourite Melinda Schneider steps back in time to pay homage to one of her musical heroes, Doris Day.

Following hugely successful capital city seasons of her theatre stage show DORIS, Melinda is bringing the songs from the show that audiences love to new territories in a concert format called Melinda Does Doris.

Melinda’s love affair with Doris began when, in childhood, Melinda laid eyes on Calamity Jane, Doris Day’s 1953 film tour de force and was smitten by all she saw.

“She was such a huge talent” Melinda enthuses, “a triple threat as they say – she could sing, dance and act. I thought then she was the best of everything a woman can be and when I grew up I wanted to be just like her.”

This nostalgic celebration includes such timeless hits as Sentimental Journey, Que Sera, Sera, Everybody Loves a Lover, Secret Love and a whole slew of hits from Calamity Jane, Love Me or Leave Me and The Pajama Game.


Enjoy a Sunday Roast Lunch at Novotel Sydney Parramatta before the show Melinda Does Doris!

Or make a full day of it with a special screening of Lover Come Back staring Doris Day and Rock Hudson at 11am.
