A Doris Day Special

In loving memory of Doris Day, award-winning singer and actress Ali Harper (Songs for Nobodies, Legendary Divas, Bombshells) is bringing her highly acclaimed show A Doris Day Special to Ashburton.

Doris Day, with her bubbly personality, lilting voice and blonde beauty was America's singing sweetheart of the silver screen during the 1950s and 1960s. With her hit songs Sentimental Journey, Secret Love and Que Sera Sera, she was for many years ranked as the No. 1 female box office star in the world.

Directed by Stephanie McKellar-Smith with Big Band Musical Direction by Rodger Fox, it's 1971 and Doris is filming her Television Special.
You are invited to be a part of A Doris Day Special television studio audience and celebrate the life and songs of that quintessential girl next door.

"Harper bears an uncanny resemblance to Doris Day in appearance, manner and vocal quality. A Doris Day Special was indeed as special and as satisfying as the title suggests, bringing back many fond memories." Manawatu Standard

"Ali Harper has all the effervescence that made Doris Day such a ray of sunshine. She embodies the 'natural zing' of a woman who loved joy and who just wanted to smile and make people happy." Theatreview

"I don't recommend shows but this is so good that I simply have to. Go. You'll love it!" Lexie Matheson, Auckland Theatre Critic

"The show is a brilliant tribute to one of America's greatest sweethearts and Ali Harper has created a show with tremendous big band sounds and dazzling costumes that creates an experience for all admirers of the legendary Doris Day." The Plug, Tauranga
