SIX-TIME Golden Guitar winner and 2010 Dancing with the Stars contestant, Melinda Schneider, will perform her Doris Day tribute show for residents of Lakeside Retirement Village, in Bonnells Bay, on Friday.

The country music star enjoyed success with her Melinda Does Doris – A Tribute to Doris Day album, and rolled that into a live stage show Melinda Does Doris which has toured the country.

Schneider’s appearance is one of 11 creative and entertaining events being held across NSW and the ACT as part of the national Lendlease Spring Retirement Festival being hosted across 64 of its villages throughout Australia over September and October.

General manager of Lendlease’s NSW Retirement Living business, Ann Holzer, said the festival was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate living an active and creative life and to inspire those aged over 55 to try something new.

“Melinda Schneider is a great Australian talent, and we’re thrilled to have her as part of the festival,” Ms Holzer said.

“Her versatility and ability to sing, dance and act, means this Doris Day tribute will be unparallelled and we expect attendees to be singing along and dancing in their seats.”

Schneider will be performing Doris Day classics including Que Sera Sera and Sentimental Journey.

The events are free, and are open to all members of the public aged 55-plus.

Bookings are essential and can be made online, or by calling the Spring Retirement Festival hotline 1800 550 550.
