Take Me to Paris
After a string of successful Australian and international tours, French-born, award-winning singer Pauline Maudy presents a new show about growing up in two places. Much more than a story of migration, Take Me to Paris reminds us of the importance of community, connection, memories, and belonging.
One of the truly rare voices on the international world scene, Pauline effortlessly channels the greats in French and English, transporting audiences from Parisian alleyways to New York jazz bars in a heartbeat.
This entertaining, funny, and moving show skilfully weaves compelling storytelling and breathtaking music, taking audiences on a voyage to the mystical city of Paris and right back to the beautiful land we live in.

Pauline Maudy is simply infectious. Her storytelling is engaging. Her voice sublime.
Brisbane based Pauline Maudy, an expatriate French singer, heartbreakingly channelled Edith Piaf... More, please.
The Sunday Mail
The way Maudy conveys emotion is incredible – she is holding the notes, sustaining them with great power that is also silky smooth weaving between the thick texture of the instruments and when joined together it cascades over us and we know we are getting a memorable show.
What Presenters Say
It was wonderful having ‘Take me to Paris’ in our venue, and in Cabaret mode [...] The show was excellent, a beautifully woven tapestry of music and storytelling, our audience was engaged and thoroughly entertained. We’re looking forward to Pauline’s next story!
Gladstone Entertainment & Convention Centre representative
A lovely evening out to catch up with others in the community and listen to some beautiful music. I think the community related to Pauline's stories of being separated from loved ones, as most of us are in the same situation in this COVID climate.
Livingstone Shire Council
The attendance was great and feedback from the community was excellent. It was a success for the festival.
Rocky River Festival
We have the demographic for this style of show; particularly one people can connect to that tells a story and immerses in culture.
Such a great afternoon of entertainment - receiving rave reviews from many!
Kingston Butter Factory
