High Society

New Earswick Musicals

11 November to 14 November 2009

Based on the 1956 film of the same name starring Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, High Society tells the story of a search for ‘True Love’.

Meet Tracy Lord (played by New Earswick Musical Society newcomer Stephanie Crossley) - society's darling, preparing for her marriage to George Kittredge (Ste Kenwright), the dullest man on earth. Plans start to go awry as her younger sister Dinah (Imogen Gibbs) tries to convince her ex husband Dexter (Steve Tearle) to win back her heart. To make matters worse, a pair of reporters for a scandal magazine, Mike Connor (Steve Padfield) and Liz Imbrie (Jo Pears), will be attending the wedding, in an attempt to uncover the rumours about her fathers’ rumoured indiscretions. To confuse the spies, she introduces Uncle Willie (Martin Rowley) as her father.

With the pre-marriage party in full swing, the action flows faster than the champagne. Uncle Willie is chasing after Liz, who has only got eyes for Mike, but Mike meanwhile is falling for Tracy. The confusion and alcohol continues, culminating in one big hangover the next day. However, George has left, so a wedding is set but no bridegroom in sight. Dexter volunteers, and this time it looks like ‘True Love’ is going to last.

With an excellent score with well known songs such as Who Wants to be a Millionaire, True Love and Well Did You Evah, large dance numbers, comedy and romance, this show has something for everyone.
