Copacabana, raising funds for 4Sight Vision Support
‘Exceptional! I couldn’t believe I was seeing this in Bognor!’ ***** – Bognor Regis Observer
After the success of ‘Nunsense’, the Musical Theatre and Arts Development students are throwing off their habits and sliding on feather headpieces to raise funds for your local sight-loss charity 4Sight Vision Support.
Combined, Musical Theatre Joint Honours students are proud to bring you ‘Copacabana’. Full of showgirls and tantalizing rhythms, this show will be a great ‘Night on the Town’.
The story follows aspiring songwriter, Stephen. His imagination takes him back to the 1940s as he creates a story surrounding an ambitious young singer Lola Lamar who arrives in New York City from Tulsa hoping to become a star. She lands a position at the famous Copacabana Nightclub, “the hottest club north of Havana”, and strives to become a ‘Copa Girl’ dancer with the help of the bartender, Tony Starr.
Show dates: Thursday 7th March – 7:30pm
Friday 8th March – 7:30pm
Saturday 9th March – 2:30pm & 7:30pm
Tickets are: £14 / £12 Concessions / £8 NUS & under 16s
