Experts in the business of show, SMA Productions excels in creating not just one aspect of entertainment but in designing a whole evening’s entertainment to perfectly complement an event. For the second year in a row ILG invited SMA to do just that!
Celebrating their 40th Anniversary, ILG asked for wow factor, star power and a party atmosphere for their masquerade themed event held at Dockside Pavilion. Over 900 guests were treated to a spectacular room reveal accompanied by the theme of ‘Masquerade’ before Phantom of the Opera stars Danielle Everett and Dale Burridge stunned audiences with their dramatic opening performance.
Once the formalities were out of the way it was time to surprise guests with a secret after party space, a big room reveal and star power delivered by none other than ARIA award winning Jessica Mauboy who ensured the part really got started and delighted guests.
With the dance floor well and truly warmed up it was over to The Diamonds who made sure every guest was up, grooving and channeling their inner diva! To cap off the night and make sure no one dared take a seat SMA enlisted party master Toni Bird & The Players Band who made sure everyone had a blast til the very last minute.
To the STARS of the SHOW, Dale, Dani, Toni, the DIAMONDS and the PLAYERS, you were just sensational. The Phantom of the Opera set the mood for our magical anniversary celebrations. I can’t stop rewinding that moment over and over – to have the two of the original cast made it so special – truly loved every minute of it. And the after party, I am lost for words, Jessica Mauboy was sensational the crowd couldn’t wait to see her perform. She even sang my favourite song to start the party! The stunning ladies of the Diamonds, who kept the crowd on their feet dancing all night and the gorgeous Toni Bird belting it out on stage with the Players…what an amazing entertainment package we had!!!
