It’s a great place to die…

Pyjamas in Paradise

Pyjamas in Paradise

The Pyjamas in Paradise performance at the GCAC bought back some great memories on Saturday night. Had the best time. You can book tickets here.

Songs from the 50s and 60s straight off my parents old LPs. Flashbacks to the Gold Coast’s early development when ‘big, white, towers’ were only a dream, and Paula Stafford’s bikinis where creating havoc on the beaches. Accommodation like theĀ  iconic ‘Pink Poodle’, the Beachcomber, and Tiki Village, were popular honeymoon destinations. If you didn’t get theĀ  reference to the real Pink Poodle on stage, that was it.

It was a shame they didn’t give the dog credits.

PS. The title is a tongue in check reference, from the performance, to the Gold Coast being a great place to retire to.
