About this event

The Carpenters From Kempsey, celebrate The Carpenters, but with a comic twist. Starring Darren Mapes & Debora Krizak, they play Darren & Sharon Carpenter--from Kempsey. Together they recreate the sound of The Carpenters with uncanny accuracy. Darren & Sharon Carpenter's lives magically transformed the day that they discovered those "Other Carpenters". Not only did they share a family name, but they looked similar as well. Join them in concert, as they hit the road singing all those songs The Carpenters made famous, including Top of the World, Rainy Days & Mondays, Calling Occupants, Ticket To Ride, Close To You, Mr Postman, Sing, as well as the odd parody and songs that Darren & Sharon feel the Carpenters "should" have done (their Cold Chisel medley, done Carpenters style, is a masterpiece)

Presented by:
Darren Mapes & Debora Krizak

The Carpenters From Kempsey have wowed audiences across Australia, from Toowoomba to Karratha, from Lyric Theatre Star City Sydney, to Palms at Crown Casino Melbourne, to sell-outs at the Dunstan Playhouse, Adelaide Cabaret Festival. The Carpenters From Kempsey have become a popular corporate act and have twice, toured throughout Malaysia.

Daz & Shaz are delighted to be touring again after what was a tumultuous covid-2020. They share their stories of Lockdown and will have you singing along to all those songs the “Other Carpenters” made famous, and a few others that they probably should have.

Created by Darren Mapes (Back To Bacharach, Thank You For Being A Friend,) and Linda Nagle, (Wharf Revue, Tivoli) and starring Darren Mapes and Debora Krizak (Anything Goes, Sweet Charity).
