ACCLAIMED: Catherine Alcorn brings her tribute to Christine McVie, 'Go Your Own Way', to Cessnock Performing Arts Centre on May 11.

The story and music of one of rock’s most fiercely private and intriguing figures, Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie, will be brought to life at Cessnock Performing Arts Centre on Thursday, May 11.

Award-winning artist and Sydney Theatre Award nominee Catherine Alcorn stars as McVie in the critically-acclaimed stage show Go Your Own Way.

Alcorn is no stranger to Cessnock audiences – she performed here in 2016 to a sold-out audience in The Divine Miss Bette, and is excited to return to the CPAC stage as the enigmatic McVie.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to return to Cessnock audiences this year,” she said.

“We had an absolute riot of a time in 2016 with The Divine Miss Bette and I’m particularly excited to be bringing them Christine McVie’s story – especially since the Mac played Hope Estate in 2015!

Go Your Own Way is different to Miss Bette. It’s a beautifully-crafted play with music – far from your average tribute show.

Commissioned by Kate Ceberano for the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Go Your Own Way is the story of McVie’s great music and tempestuous life.

Alcorn brings McVie’s four-decade career to life in this play-with-music, putting her own magic on some of the most memorable songs of the 20th century including Little Lies, Everywhere, Don’t Stop and Songbird.

The show is written by Diana Simmonds, directed by Jason Langley (Dusty) with musical direction by Isaac Hayward (The Rabbits, Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical) and features an all-star band including American Idiot’s Glenn Moorhouse.

Tickets are on sale at the CPAC box office on 4993 4266 or online at cessnockperformingartscentre.com.au.
