It’s the society wedding of the year. The flowers have arrived the champagne is on ice and the guests, press and paparazzi are assembling All they need now is for the beautiful bride to choose a groom.
Adapted from one of the Hollywood’s best loved films, Cole Porters classic musical is a giddy blend of knock-out songs, fizzing one-liners and champagne fuelled comedy.
This is a feel-good show with show stopping numbers, wonderful dancing, great for all the family. A good old fashioned traditional singing and dancing great night out.
The plot centres on the pretentious Long Island socialite Tracy Lord, who is planning a June wedding to an equally pretentious executive when ex-husband Dexter Haven arrives to disrupt the proceedings. Additional comic complications arise when tabloid reporter Mike Connor, who is there to cover the wedding also falls in love with the bride to be.
The songs were complied from various Cole Porter musicals.
