The Carpenters from Kempsey

Dates 07 October 2006
If a rendition of Close To You sends you reeling back to memories of 1970, flairs and platform shoes, then this is the show for you.Darren and Sharon Carpenter are twins born six months apart from Kempsey. They never really fitted in to life on the farm, and were hopeless at just about everything, until that magical day they discovered one of Dads old vinyl records; those ‘Other Carpenters’. Not only did they look similar but they shared a family name. Darren and Sharon have hit the road singing all the songs those other Carpenters made famous.

Written by Darren Mapes and Linda Nagle (The Wharf Review and Abroad with Two Men), The Carpenters from Kempsey takes you on a hilarious journey reliving the music of Richard and Karen Carpenter: Close To You, Ticket to Ride, Rainy Days and Mondays. Lisa Adam from Debbie Does Dallas and Darren Mapes, a veteran of Sydney’s lively cabaret scene, are as much fun as Rocky Horror’s Brad and Janet in fishnets.
