GLD DANCE SHOW PRESENT ANOTHER SPECTACULAR DANCE SHOW
The T42 ladies will be performing a rehearsed reading. Refreshments included.
The warmth, colour and beauty of Italy call to four English women living in London in 1922. Rose and Lottie are enraptured at the thought of the mediaeval castle and the wisteria advertised in the Times. They both feel the urge to get away, and in order to reduce their expenses, they find two more ladies in need of a change to accompany them.
Rose, Lottie, Mrs Fisher and Lady Caroline are all dissatisfied with their lives for various reasons; they just don’t fully realise it yet. At San Salvatore, the magic and the beauty weave their spell. Changes start to take place. And it’s not just the ladies who are enchanted.
‘The Enchanted April’, published in 1922, was written when Elizabeth von Arnim was staying in Portofino. She intended to write a happy book. It is a light-hearted story, full of flowers and sunshine, which, due to Elizabeth’s wit and delicate irony, never descends into sentimentality.
This charming and sensitive adaptation of the novel is by John Deeth.
Newport Operatic Society present a cabaret style concert.
All three Venture Player Groups are coming together for one night only for a musical extravaganza.
