Get ready for the musical event of the season as Cole Porter’s timeless classic, High Society, skips into town.

Wealthy socialite Tracy Lord is in the midst of planning a lavish summer wedding when her ex-husband Dexter Haven turns up to disrupt the proceedings. When charming reporter Mike Connor arrives and falls instantly for Tracy (and she for him), everyone is guessing who the bride will choose!

Michael Praed (Robin of Sherwood, The Sound of Music) stars as Dexter Haven, Marilyn Cutts (Fascinating Aida) as Margaret Lord, Teddy Kempner (Acorn Antiques The Musical, RSC’s Nicholas Nickleby) as Uncle Willie, Daniel Boys (Any Dream Will Do) as Mike Connor with Sophie Bould (The Sound of Music) as Tracy Lord.

High Society bubbles with a host of beautiful ballads including True Love, You’re Sensational and the unforgettable Well, Did You Evah!
