BROS THEATRE COMPANY CELEBRATES 110TH ANNIVERSARY WITH RETURN TO RICHMOND THEATRE WITH PRODUCTION OF
Hot off the heels of its recent Best Musical win at the artsrichmond Swan Awards 2018, BROS Theatre Company returns to Richmond Theatre with its swell-egant, elegant production of Cole Porter’s HIGH SOCIETY.
This all-singing all-dancing family spectacular will sweep into the iconic Richmond Theatre from Tue 30 Oct – Sat 3 Nov, marking the first time a non-commercial company has performed the show in the theatre’s 119-year history. Press are invited to attend for review on Tue 30 Oct at 7.30pm.
And what of the story? It takes place in 1938 in Oyster Bay, Long Island, where a lavish wedding is about to take place. The unexpected arrival of her ex-husband and a potential suitor means that for the bride-to-be, there’s a choice to be made. With an irresistible Cole Porter score including sensational classics ‘True Love’, ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ and ‘Let’s Misbehave’, High Society offers a glimpse into the romances and dramas of the fashionable elite.
For show director Deb McDowell, HIGH SOCIETY is a natural choice for Richmond Theatre. ‘It’s such a pleasure to be bringing this classy show to Richmond Theatre – it’s the perfect venue. What could be better for banishing the blues this Autumn than a brilliantly comic and beautifully romantic Cole Porter musical!’
Past BROS shows at Richmond Theatre include Crazy For You in 2010, Oliver! In 2013 and 42nd Street in 2016 – all of which played to sell-out audiences. The company also have won the artsrichmond Award for Best Musical for two years running, with The Producers(2016) and Made In Dagenham (2017). As of 2018, BROS is the only non-commercial company still performing at Richmond.
BROS Theatre Company is celebrating 110 years of delighting audiences in the borough. BROS’ patron, Alan Titchmarsh, has been a part of the society and its work for many years including undertaking a variety of on-stage roles himself. Of HIGH SOCIETY, Alan says,“BROS Theatre Company’s productions, with their reputation for quality and originality, are eagerly looked forward to by a large audience. High Society is a hit show that offers a wealth of familiar songs, from ‘True Love’ to ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ and ‘Well Did You Evah!’ I can’t wait to see it, and urge all those who love this Hollywood favourite to book a seat now!”
